Show Summary

The most important determinant of a growing accounting practice is success OR failure. It’s the mindset of you (the owner); do you have an empowering mindset or a defeating mindset? The reality is… we have both! It changes over time, but you have the ability to control and influence it to put your self in a mindset that will take you to limits that you have never experienced. On this episode we interview coach and mind-empowering expert, Barry Kaplan, who shares tons of insights on how you can do it. PLUS the GMAP-now Task is the easiest task we’ve ever given before… but will have a powerful impact! Welcome to Episode 38 of Grow My Accounting Practice!
