Are we boring?

Ya gotta laugh… recently somebody said to me – “I’m worried that you might be getting a little boring because all you seem to speak about is the need to have a budget”.

Helloooo!  That’s what we do – budgets. Purely and simply – we do budgets. That’s our job. Anything other than that would be crap.

And for anybody who has a business of their own they’ll know that the greatest trap of all is to try to be “all things to all men”. Doing that is a sure fire way of losing your focus and perspective. (to say nothing of your credibility)

If you went to the hairdresser and found that they were now selling bread (because everybody buys bread these days) would you think that’s what they should be doing?  Or would you worry that you’d end up with a crummy hair-do? (Pardon the pun)

Or, if your lawyer started doing massages, would you worry a little about his legal practice? Would you think that there might be a problem, with his legal advice? Sure he might be able to massage away any problem that you’re having but you do realise that’s in the metaphorical sense rather than literally, don’t you?

And by the same token – while you don’t ask your accountant about which television is the best to buy, neither should you listen to the salesman at Hardly  (k)Nowing who tells you that leasing a computer is claimable on your tax return; particularly if you are not self-employed but work for wages only. What does the technology salesman know about your tax return anyway?

So, if you think we’re a little boring – think again. The greatest thing we can do is to ‘stay on message’.

And if that means the only thing we talk about is having a budget, the benefits of a budget, and how we can set your budget on the right path – then be glad that we know what we’re talking about –

Because that means we’re the people that you should be talking to!
