make a good decision for that client. This includes conducting research, observing client needs, and analyzing the client’s business.
This is the reason I’ve been so interested in the new “auditor’s report” study conducted by Deloitte Consulting (now Ernst & Young) to determine what “skills” clients might need to succeed in their industries compared to other industries. The study revealed that the survey respondents had a much better understanding of the services and products they’re receiving compared to their peers.
I have to say, Deloitte Consulting seems to have picked a really interesting study to analyze. Most of the studies that Ive read have a one-sided, one-size fits all approach. I can’t help but think that I might have a different story.
While I have been doing a ton of research into what makes a great attorney, I have not been doing any research into what makes a great businessperson. I have seen people come up with some really great ideas, but I have not been able to find any data on whether there are similar skillsets and experiences required for business success.
I don’t believe there are any business skills. It’s just a matter of the right personality and the right mindset. Businesses need people who are motivated to get things done, but can’t stand to waste their time going out and doing meaningless activities. Business people, on the other hand, expect to do work that they want to do, but don’t expect their work to be boring. This is a huge difference.
That’s one of the most common questions we get, and one of the things that causes so many people to fall in love with building their own businesses. We at BizWiz have been doing this for over a decade and our team has built thousands of businesses. Every single one of them has had one thing in common: we knew how to do it right. There’s no single one of our clients who’s had a bad experience doing business and never got it right.
It’s not that we know how to do business. It’s that we do it right. We got that in our training from our favorite business coach. It’s not about you. It’s about you doing it right. We did it right.
I don’t think anyone’s really been on the receiving end of an auditor’s knowing how to do business. It’s a skill we’ve all learned by doing it ourselves. It’s not hard, but just because we know how to do it doesn’t mean we know how to do it. We have all had situations where we’ve been let down by an auditor. And we’ve all had situations where we’ve had an audit done by an accountant. We know how to do business.
Let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of your business coach. I think its a great idea and one that I would encourage you to implement. However, I have to disagree with your point that you should be doing it right. I dont think any of us are really doing it right. The problem is that the “right” way of doing business is completely different from the “right” way of doing business.
This gets to the problem of business accounting. The first thing that people really care about when they think about business accounting is a) the cost to the company and b) the profit margin. Its the most important thing and I think it is critical that we take the right steps to ensure that we stay within those boundaries. Its also a very scary responsibility.
