Practice Management Guidance

  • You Can’t Hit the Client Bull’s-Eye Without Seeing the Target

    Targeting the “right” clients can be a challenge. When working with large accounting firms, I sometimes will ask each partner to share their top targets with me. Surprisingly, they can’t name one target, nor can they explain what makes an ideal target client in their practice area.
  • PICPA Strategies to Succeed in Profession’s New Frontier

    This past June, PICPA’s Annual Meeting returned to Pennsylvania with a new one-day format. Members had the opportunity to build their network while hearing about key issues within the profession and the PICPA. In addition to our change in elected leadership, our Council had the opportunity to finalize PICPA’s strategic priorities.
  • Changes to Uniform LLC Act May Have Unexpected Impact

    Recently enacted changes under the Pennsylvania Uniform Limited Liability Company Act will have a dramatic impact on the governance of limited liability companies in Pennsylvania. The act took effect on April 1, 2017, and because LLCs are the most frequently used legal entity, it is essential that CPAs understand the new rules.
