Accountants are too boring, bland and samey. You don’t differentiate in a way that makes potential clients choose YOU instead of your competitors. This poor positioning means lost opportunities, lower quality clients and the inevitable pushback on fees.

There is a better way. If you want to grow, you must personally brand yourself to attract the right kind of business. People buy people, right? REPUTATION is your ultimate marketing currency. It’s what people think and say about you. It dictates whether they’ll hire you, stay with you and recommend you.
