Weekly Pep Talk With Danetha Doe

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]

This week we had a special guest – the lovely, Danetha Doe, discussing Marketing, and Branding for accountants and bookkeepers. The best way to get everything out of this is to watch the video, and go through it with her. Also make sure you are signed up for the e-mail list (to your right) and in the next e-mail I send out, there will be a link to download a PDF of her slides.

Here are some highlights. These are notes I jotted down, while we were watching Danetha.

How do you make a client feel when they work with you?

Clients often tell me they feel relieved after the first conversation on the phone with me. This is what tells me I am doing my job well.

 

Interesting history regarding branding:
Brand is an identifying mark that used to be burned on livestock and criminals.

What will someone think of when they hear your name, or see your logo?

(eg) funny name, serious business
 
What is your why? Simon Sinek – the TED Talk is great, the book, is even better.
There is no competition.

Deck will be included in the next e-mail. Got notes of your own to add? Post a comment below!

Action items listed on slides – great stuff!

of Business Communication


 

Learning Objectives:

TSheets Weekly Pep Talk – The Gig Economy

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]

The Gig Economy is not a new concept, but it is becoming more prevalent. There are three learning objectives we covered in this Pep Talk:

  1. Learn what the Gig Economy is
  2. Understand how the Gig Economy affects you, as the accountant or bookkeeper
  3. Learn how to find these “Gig Economy” Clients

 

When I first came to California, and I was ready to join the workforce out here, I signed up with Accountemps. I believe they were bought by Robert Half, or some other big accounting and financial placement agency. I still remember the woman who helped me get my first job out here, and my second, and my third, which turned into a permanent placement.

During the beginning period, and after the first job didn’t work out, I remember her telling me that some people she worked with actually liked the idea of being permanent, temporary employees. In other words, I didn’t necessarily have to go for a full time job. Some, she said, argued that it kept things interesting, and made it easier to take vacations when you want to.

The idea of the permanent, temporary job approach appealed to me, but I wasn’t ready yet. Now this idea appeals to me very much, In fact, it’s sort of what I do. I’m a consultant. I go out, and find companies who need my help, and I offer them that help. I will work with a company for a while, get them up and running on their own feet, so to speak, and then move on to the next one, providing support to my clients on an on going and as needed basis.

Episode 3: How to Make Money While You’re Sleeping

Here we taught the following 3 learning objectives:

  1. Look at the apps you need for your target industries (this goes back to the very first session when you were asked to identify 3 target industries).
  2. How to generate leads for your partner programs.
  3. Build a financial model around your potential earnings from partner and affiliate programs.

This Pep Talk took place on Wednesday January 20, 2016

The webinar recording is above. You need to have registered for at least one pep talk to get the password. Below you will find the preview video that explains a little about what this pep talk covered.


In this episode we revisit an action item from episode 1 – identifying your target industries. One you do that, you can start listing the apps you will be using to service your clients. Then you can start looking into the partner programs they offer, and that is where building your passive streams of income come in.

We’ll discuss the common objection of ethics, and integrity regarding partner and affiliate programs.

We’ll look at why it’s important to put a simple financial model together, that looks at what you can potentially earn, based on a goal oyu will set for yourself in terms of how many leads you plan to refer to your affiliate partners each month.

Episode 2: How to Manage Your Workload

Here we taught the following 3 learning objectives:

  1. Go beyond using your calendar in the traditional ways and learn to live by it.
  2. Learn at least two tools for organizing and managing your workload.
  3. Set goals for personal downtime – the reward for managing your workload well.

 

This Pep Talk took place on Wednesday January 13, 2016

The webinar recording is above. You need to have registered for at least one pep talk to get the password. Below you will find the preview video that explains a little about what this pep talk covered.

 


In this episode we show you some very specific tips and tricks for how to use your calendar to make it the ultimate authority. We ask you to schedule things you normally wouldn’t schedule on your calendar!

We look at time management. It makes sense that the key work managing your workload, is time management.

We’ll show you how to lay out and set your goals, with specific action items to help you do it. Then we have you answer some questions, and then you’ll go back to the first action item, and revise what you did.

You should find that this is an eye opening experience. Most importantly, when you’re finished doing this stuff, you should have a real clear picture about how you will manage all of your time, and your workload within that.
