• The Power of Diagnosing

    December 12, 2017

    You arrive at the doctor’s office. What’s the first thing they say (besides hello)? Normally, they’ll ask you about your symptoms. This may seem simple but what the doc is really doing is using a specific set of questions known as diagnostic questions.

  • I H4TE P@$$W0RD$!

    December 7, 2017

    We’ve all had that dreaded message appear, “Your password has expired, please create a new password.” The IT folks that manage our systems tell us that we can’t use the same password we’ve used before, it must contain special characters, it must x characters in length…ARGH!!! This is extremely frustrating.  Don’t they know that we have better things to spend our time on than remembering passwords and their archaic requirements?  Being one of the aforementioned IT folks, I’d like to give you a few tips to make your life easier and hopefully even more secure.

  • Why I'm Wrong About Christmas

    November 30, 2017

    I remember watching A Christmas Carol as a child and thinking, ‘How could anyone be that selfish?’

    As the years go by, come Christmas time, I find myself getting lost in things that I’ve convinced myself are important. Getting out the Christmas decorations. Jamming Christmas parties into my schedule. Stressing about deciding on what junk I should buy and put under the Christmas tree this year.

    Why? All so I can ‘enjoy’ the holidays and Christmas day.

  • Rethinking the Cookie-Cutter Approach to Software

    November 28, 2017

    Has the advent of low-cost, retail available accounting software impacted small businesses?  You bet it has.  The dawn of accounting solutions packages like QuickBooks, Sage and other off the shelf packages has given the power to everybody to create custom solutions based on their business’ needs.  Though there are many advantages to these packages, such as low cost and customizability,  there are many problems as well.  

  • The Holy Grail - Agent Adoption

    November 21, 2017

    If you’ve ever worked in the real estate industry then you know that agents have an aversion to using new technology (which is funny because they’re the ones calling out for new technology in the first place!). Every year brokerages, boards, associations, and franchises across North America throw hundreds of thousands of dollars into their tech in a fruitless effort to make their agents happy. Meanwhile, the tools collect dust because agents do things their way.

    Regardless, agent adoption is a battle worth fighting. The potential ROI for your business is huge.

  • How to Join Online Meetings and Webinars

    November 17, 2017

    There are many benefits to hosting webinars and meetings online. They allow people located far distances from each other to connect and share ideas. They conveniently allow us stay in our own offices and desks during the work day. They don’t require expensive software or technology to use. They allow for more attendees than traditional meetings and training sessions.

    Online meetings and webinars are great, but if you haven’t attended one before, they may be a little confusing.

    Regular Cleaning

    Like your smelly dog, your books need regular cleaning. Here’s what you should do on an ongoing basis to keep things squeaky clean.
