The work of assembling this web site has reminded me of why I started my firm. The mere existence, or lack thereof, of a / < or > in the html code can have a dramatic effect on what the viewer sees on the published page. While WordPress does a nice job of using templates to simplify it all, to really get the look and feel I was looking for, I had to learn a little about how to customize this stuff and then make it happen. Lots of trial and error.
In many ways, this is what I hope to save my clients from when it comes to accounting and taxes. While QuickBooks or TurboTax can make your life simpler, and uses templates and questionnaires to get you closer to what you want, sometimes there is no substitute for having a professional help you out. You want your invoices to look GREAT, not just ok. You want your taxes to be the smallest amount possible, not just acceptably lower or in a certain effective tax bracket.
Since I know my clients get 100% effort all the time, I know that the time I spent on this site was time spent away from my family. It was a necessary step, and I don’t regret it, but I sure don’t want to repeat it. Don’t struggle with your administrative functions and let them take away from your clients or your family. Give me a call, tell me what you’re looking for help with, and I can either help you or I can’t. If I can, then let’s get to work. If not, I can likely refer you to a qualified and trusted colleague who can. And that’s not just limited to accounting – I am always talking about being the trusted business advisor, and that can take many forms and shapes. So give me a call and let’s see what we can do to solve your business problems.
