Terrific article, Rob! Short and sweet. I love the fact that you started with "Understanding the client's goals." So many times it's easy to get obsessed with selling and forget that first step. Good on ya, mate.

Hi Jody- I agree wholeheartedly! Believe it or not, I've seen problems with bank feeds and downloads (missing transactions), so doing a hard bank rec each month really is a best practice. Great article, I like your writing style:)

Hi Craig- I just wanted to say thanks for the terrific article! I too am trying to ditch the crusty old marketing tactics that don't work and focus on digital strategies and giving away my expertise. I like your no-BS writing style, this article was very fun to read:)

Great interview, Seth! It's always cool to get an inside look at a small firm that's getting it right. Lots of accounting innovation coming from Canada these days... FreshBooks, Hubdoc, LiveCA, AIS... I wonder what they're doing up there.

Fantastic article, Liz! I particularly like your "cathedral" metaphor and the how-to tip (X for Y so they can Z) from Jason Blumer. I've noticed your articles before here on AW and you are a truly talented writer, one of those people who can take a tricky topic and make it look easy. Vision is hard... I'm working on mine all the time, and your article reminded me how important it is.

Terrific article by Bryce Sanders! Light, useful, and pretty darn funny, all at the same time. I love the title, too. Great work, Bryce.

Once again, Lee Frederiksen a) shares his best knowledge openly and b) proves that he's a crack thinker and communicator. Every time I read one of Lee's articles, I think, "Man, I wish I could write one single paragraph like that." Superb job again, Lee.

Wow, this is the best article on website design I've read in a mighty long time. Great job, Jay! Plus, I love the name of your agency.

Wow, this is a dynamite article by Wes Wilkins. There are so many tech and workflow changes happening right now, and you've done a great job of tying them all together into a coherent picture (not easy to do!). Obviously, I'm going to take a look at XTBills (and I hope you're working on a Xero integration). Thanks again for the terrific article.

Great topic and another great interview/article from Seth. Quick question for Marnie: Ron says to estimate your hours in advance and then use that as one of your foundations, but I've discovered that most new clients and projects (especially cleanup/repair jobs) are virtually impossible to estimate, and using change orders is problematic because clients hate after-the-fact price increases . How do you deal with those situations? And you're right, value pricing is definitely a journey (and not an easy one).
