Michelle Golden Blog: Top Travel Tips You Want To Know
With an international practice, I travel often. I’m always happy to discover tips and ideas that make traveling a little easier, so I hope you’ll enjoy some of my favorite findings.
Linda Cavanaugh Blog: Almost left in DC
I love to go to conferences. I don’t particularly enjoying sitting in an uncomfortable chair for eight hours with limited breaks, but I do enjoy the excitement of going places. I try to plan my flights, so that I arrive in the early afternoon on the day before the conference. This gives me time to sight-see and shop.
Brian Tankersley Blog: Travel Tips from a Road Warrior
Despite fewer flight options and smaller planes, it’s still possible to have a positive experience when traveling for business. With a few extra tools, you can help your trip be more pleasant. I travel about 100,000 miles a year (on average) for business, and many of these tips come from years of dealing with the TSA, hotels, airlines, etc. This is the first in a series of articles to help make your travel experiences more pleasant.
Allan Boress Blog: Business Travel Do-Over
Ever look back at life and ask what you would do over? The most obvious for me would not be pursuing a career that required travel. I never want to experience an airport again. That means you wouldn't be reading this blog, because professional speaking and consulting required international travel to reach your utmost.
Bill Kennedy Blog: Travel Heavy
Yes, yes, I know. ALL of the travel tips tell you to travel light. Pack one bag. Make it small enough to be carry on. That way you can take your laptop and your suitcase on the plane with you. They don't get lost. You don't have to wait to get your luggage at your destination. You can just waltz through to get to the front of the taxi / rental car line.
How to Protect and Nurture Your Trusted Client Relationships
Accountants World For accounting firm owners and partners only.
     You've been both very powerful and very generous. You've helped the mega-corporations make tens of billions of dollars by letting them leverage your most precious business asset - your trusted client relationships.
     Unknowingly, for over three decades accountants have been feeding their competitors. With the help you've given by referring your clients, these mega-corporations now prevail over your clients, competing fiercely against you and undermining your professional status. Accountants have created their own Frankenstein and are now paying the price. Today the mega-corporations that sell accounting software and payroll services directly to your clients have a stronger hold on your clients than you do.
     How did accountants get themselves in this precarious situation? Click here to learn more.
