Some days you’re on a roll. Everything goes your way, from headache-free traffic to late-evening sports reports of your favorite team’s victory.
Other days it’s just the opposite. You just seem to be on the losing side–appointments canceled without notice, long lines wherever you go, and even a flat tire when you’re heading home.
Why does life seem to gain momentum in one direction or the other?
Why are there such big swings of the pendulum? Where do you assign credit or blame? An age-old theory says it’s all on you. The reasoning? Your expectations and consequent behavior govern the responses of the outside world, and ultimately, you get what you ask for.
It’s simply the Law of Attraction, a concept that’s been around for hundreds of years. Like the Law of Gravity, it influences your life whether or not you believe in it. Plainly stated it goes something like this: your life is a reflection of what you think, what you focus on, and what you expect to happen.
If you’re unsatisfied with your life and the success of your business, then it’s likely that your thoughts have been of an unsatisfying life and an unsuccessful business. Perhaps you worry about whether or not you’ll be successful. Or maybe you develop contingency plans for all the problems you expect to happen.
Take inventory of your thoughts because when you worry and dread you invite more things into your life about which to worry and dread. Imagine what might happen if you expected success, if you spent more of your thoughts on profitability and an ever-expanding client base? Because the Law of Attraction is working in your life, whether or not you’re conscious of it. You might as well take advantage of the tremendous impact positive thinking can have on your business.
What’s In It For You To Be Positive?
If you are going to speak with a potential client, having an optimistic attitude can help close the deal. When your clients see that you are upbeat and positive, they feel confident that things will be all right. If you show concern or negativity, you put them in a state of mind where they will be more negative or concerned with what might go wrong.
Is this theory really on target? Are you responsible for how successful or unsuccessful you are, for how happy or unhappy? Give it a try–it can’t hurt, and it could prove to be a winning strategy for you.

Starting your own financial practice can be terrifying and exciting at the same time. There are lots of pros in self-employment: the flexibility to work when you want and on the projects you want to work on, the potential to uncap your salary, and the ability to wake every morning to a job you love.
But you aren’t being realistic if you don’t consider the cons as well. Unfortunately, it’s the cons that can cause any reasonable professional to hesitate a bit. But you can be practical about starting your own firm while preparing for potential obstacles if you just ask yourself the right questions.
In a recent Entrepreneur.com article, author and professional coach Lindsay Broder shares “6 Questions to Help Unleash Your Inner Entrepreneur.” Here we share 4 of her questions:
1. Do you believe anything is possible? You must have the confidence that anything can happen with a little determination and perseverance. And sometimes that comes in acting upon your dream. However, if you’re at all hesitant, you can keep your day job while working your business on the side. After some time you will built up the assurance that success is achievable.
2. What’s your purpose? Ask yourself what you hope to achieve as an entrepreneur. If you’re just interested in bossing people around or becoming filthy rich, this probably isn’t the path for you. But if you’re passionate about a purpose—your practice’s mission—than that can carry you through a lot of difficult times.
3. How willing are you to market yourself? Not many financial professionals get jazzed about marketing their practices, but neglecting this key function causes many businesses to fail. You must be willing to step outside your comfort zone and let people know how your services can improve their lives.
4. Do you believe you’re capable? When you have the confidence that your skillset can handle any potential obstacle or problem, you exude a sense of expertise that puts potential clients at ease. As Broder explains, “Believing in what you’re doing and believing you’re capable are two key ingredients for selling your business to the consumer. If you lack either, dig deeper to figure out if it’s lack of confidence in your business or a lack of confidence in yourself.”

Just answer a few questions for us:
- Would you like to make more money?
- Are you interested in being your own boss?
- Would you like to enjoy a flexible work schedule?
- Have you considered spending more time with your family?
- Do you want to improve your standard-of-living?
Not many people would answer “no” to any of those questions. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not know how to accomplish them. Luckily for you, Universal Accounting Center is in the business of helping professionals accomplish all that and more!
What Are You Waiting for?
A more prosperous economy? Your ship to sail in? The perfect time?
When you take a passive approach to life, waiting for something good to happen, you’ll find those good things are forever beyond your reach. Truly successful people don’t wait for anything; instead they choose to make good things happen for themselves.
A little work, a small investment, and some elbow grease are all that’s required to start and build your own accounting and tax practice. That and two power programs.
The Professional Bookkeeper (PB) Program
In order for your financial practice to be more appealing than the competition, you must offer specialized services. Small business accounting is a specialized service. Consider that your current and prospective clients will need someone trained to do one or more of the following:
- Master accounting for retail and wholesale businesses
- Establish the accounting method that best fits the business
- Set up an efficient system for a “Ma & Pa” manufacturing company
- Track job costs simply and efficiently for a construction company
- Consult on key business issues with confidence
- Enter data quickly and accurately
- Prepare payroll like a seasoned pro
- Avoid costly IRS penalties
- Spot and avoid dangerous trends before they become tragedies
- Save a company thousands of dollars in auditing costs
- Prepare a loan application package
- Make positive change happen!
The PB Program will teach you how to do all that and more. In less than 60 hours you can receive professional certification that demonstrates your expertise to potential clients. You will be able to do for them what few other accountants could do. The only thing left for you to do is promote your newly acquired skills.
The Universal Practice Builder Program
Marketing strategies, promotional campaigns, advertising techniques. Those are generally things financial professionals are unfamiliar and even uncomfortable with. Knowing how to appeal to your particular demographic will enable you to create a marketing approach that is successful, lucrative, and productive.
The Universal Practice Builder Program will help you do that by equipping you with 12-proven marketing strategies that will enable you to secure 15 to 25 qualified leads per month. You’ll also learn how to prepare seminars that will demonstrate the value of your services to prospective clients. In addition, for three months you’ll have access to a personal coach who will help you apply the things you learn while setting and achieving your business goals. Not to mention, all this comes with a guarantee that you will earn $30,000 more in annualized billings in just 12 months!
Again, what are you waiting for?
It’s time you took action! Pursue your dreams, expand your practice and take a bigger piece of that pie. Go on! You deserve it. Call Universal at 1-877-833-7909 to enroll now!
They’re everywhere these days. People have personal blogs, political blogs, travel blogs, health blogs, corporate and small-business blogs. But do you really need a blog?
Small-business blogging is a popular, and cost-effective, method of marketing. But the point is not just to get a blog out there; the point is to have it rise to the top of competing blogs. So, how do you do that?
Here are a few tips that will help you create a blog worthy of a significant and loyal following.
- Read other small business blogs. You’re more likely to see what works by reading other blogs, especially those in the tax industry. Do a quick search, and bookmark all those you want to follow. This is, possibly, the most effective way to witness what works and doesn’t work in the wonderful world of blogging.
- Update frequently. People expect to find new information on a blog, so you’ll loose readers quickly if you neglect it. While some blogs update daily and others two to three times a week, you’ll find your sweet spot, once again, by visiting other small-business accounting blogs to see what they’re doing.
- Build in numerous links. Not only do visitors find that useful, but those same sites just might return the favor by adding your link to their site, increasing your traffic.
- Include free and practical information. Not only does this demonstrate your tax expertise, but it demonstrates a professional generosity which current and potential clients will appreciate.
- Avoid blatant self-promotion. While your blog is obviously a good way to get the word out about your valuable services, you should avoid successive posts that only boast about your services.
- Enable social sharing. Most blogging systems allow you to add links to posts, enabling readers to share your blog via Facebook, Twitter, etc. Doing so gives will increase your readership more quickly.
- Keep posts short and sweet. The nature of blogging is to abbreviate rather than blather on and on. Most readers opt out of reading a post that involves much scrolling.
- Respond to comments. The great thing about blogs is that they are conversational. Readers can post comments to the blogger and visa versa. Encourage that interaction because it inspires greater loyalty among your readers.
- Include pictures. Graphics add professionalism and interest to your posts. Look for an inexpensive graphic subscription that would enable you to easily find and upload images to your blog.
- Avoid negativity. Nobody likes to continually read text through which the author rants and raves about the injustices of the world—that is, unless those readers themselves are Negative Nellys. Keep your posts positive.
Once you get your blog up and running, share the URL with current clients, have it printed on your business card, include it in your email signature, and provide a link to the blog from your website. You may discover that blogging might be one of the best marketing tools you’ve used in a long time.
Enhance Your Skillset!
Consider what your life would be like without the convenience of modern technology. Without software programs like QuickBooks, we would be required to do things the slow, old-fashioned way. Thankfully, we don’t have to.
The Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide (PBG) to QuickBooks will enable you to master this software program that over 80% of small businesses use to manage their accounting. Once you do, you will be able to work more efficiently as you use all the features, functions, and shortcuts QuickBooks offers. Not only will the PBG enable you to manage your own books more efficiently, but it can increase your bottom line as you add QuickBooks consultation, help and setup services to your menu. With hands-on training you can earn a professional designation as a QuickBooks Specialist that will give you the creditably you need to convince prospective clients that you are an outstanding tax professional!
With just one small initial investment, you can increase your income and your clientele. Don’t wait to thank us. Call Universal at 1-877-833-7909 to order now!
At the onset of their venture, small business owners generally can’t afford to hire support staff. This requires they wear many hats in order to manage all the necessary business functions. It’s important that you beware of all these functions so you avoid neglecting key business tasks that enable your practice to run more efficiently.
While there are some services you should outsource to trusted professionals (for example, lawyers), other functions you’ll have to manage yourself. So until you can hire help, here are 4 priority tasks you should become proficient at:
Marketing. We continually stress the importance of marketing. While it’s nice to imagine otherwise, clients are not magnetically drawn to your office. They need to hear about your services before they can request them. That’s why your marketing efforts can make or break your business. From the promotions you publicize on your website to your yellow page listing, all of it speaks of the value of your services. If you’re interested in learning more about proven-marketing strategies, visit our Universal Practice Builder site.
Collections Manager. Billing your clients is important, but collecting is even more important. While you should do all you can to ensure your clients have good credit before you add them to your roster, there’s always the chance they’ll delay payment, jeopardizing the vitality of your business. So until you can outsource this task you must do it yourself. Devise a system whereby you can track payments and notify clients when their accounts are outstanding. And once they are you should discontinue your services until they become current.
Administrative Assistant. Okay, so you aren’t flush enough to hire your own secretary. That’s okay—doing this job will help you better connect with your clients. This function may require you to have a routine To-Do list which you follow in order to ensure you accomplish everything that must be done. From filing invoices to scheduling appointments to ordering supplies, you must have a system of managing all these tasks so that nothing crucial is forgotten.
Technology Expert. Of course, when your business only has one computer this generally isn’t a problem. But consider those clients you work with. If their accounting software fails or they encounter a problem tracking financial information, you must know enough to either help them solve the problem or refer them to someone who can. This may require you to do a little research and keep up on significant software trends. If you’re interested in learning how to master QuickBooks, the leading accounting software used by small business owners, visit our QuickBooks training site.
You probably anticipated working overtime for your business the first few years. You may not have anticipated working countless jobs in the process. But until you can afford to hire help you’ll have to do much of this yourself. The good news is Universal Accounting can help you master these while launching your business. Take a virtual tour today to see how UAC can help you advance your career!
UAC’s Professional Bookkeeper’s Guide to QuickBooks is a tutorial-based course enabling students to master this popular accounting software. In this article, we share a tutorial on QuickBooks Help System, taken directly from the course.
Sometimes in QuickBooks you need help determining what forms to use or what to enter into those forms once you find them. QuickBooks has a pretty good help system. Some people are disappointed when they receive the QuickBooks software and realize that it didn’t come with a 1300 page user’s manual like they used to distribute in the good old days. But to be honest with you, the help that’s available in the QuickBooks program itself is better and more complete than the assistance or help that we used to get in those 1300 page user manuals.
One thing that’s different in newer versions of the software is the position of the Help display. If you click on Help and then select “QuickBooks Help” or press F1, help displays on the right-hand side of the screen. To get help on something, click on this search topic and then type in a search phrase. In this example, we’re going to search for “job costing.”
Once you type in “job costing” and press enter, QuickBooks displays 15 different topics related to job costing. You can view those different topics to see if any of them are helpful. Let’s imagine you want “unbilled costs by job report.” You click on that link and QuickBooks tells you exactly how to get that report and what information should be on it.
The next Help feature that we want to talk about is the Learning Center Tutorials. To access these, go into Help and Learning Center Tutorials. These are small videos that Intuit has created to help you understand how to use the program. They’re very brief, but they provide an excellent overview. Some of you might have your clients use them to get a general idea of how to use QuickBooks.
Let’s talk just a little bit about Support. If you click on the support option, QuickBooks connects to the Internet and details the different support options available. You have 30 days of free technical support when you first register your software, and that’s available immediately after you purchase it. You can purchase support from Intuit as well. You also might want to contact Universal Accounting Center to check on the support that we offer for QuickBooks and the Professional Guide to QuickBooks training program.
You can access QuickBooks Help in other areas of the program as well. Our training includes complete details on how to take advantage of them all.

Every year the National Taxpayer Advocate submits a report to Congress identifying the most significant issues encountered by taxpayers. On January 9th, 2014, National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson released the 2013 annual report which focuses on two main concerns: the need for a taxpayer bill of rights and inadequate IRS funding.
In regards to the 2013 tax year, Olson explained, “The year 2013 was a very challenging one for the IRS. Because of sequestration, the IRS’s funding was substantially cut, which translated into a reduction in taxpayer service. Public trust in its fairness and impartiality was called into question because of reports the IRS subjected certain applicants for tax-exempt status to greater review based on political-sounding names. And because of the 16-day government shutdown, the agency could not complete preparations for the upcoming tax filing season on time, delaying the date on which taxpayers can first file returns and claim refunds.”
Recommended Taxpayer Bill of Rights
Regarding the concern for a taxpayer’s bill of rights, the report explains that our tax system hinges on voluntary compliance, which 98% of taxpayers offer. Regardless of this high level of compliance, a survey found that less than half of those respondents believed they have rights before the IRS.
The report further explains, “The Internal Revenue Code provides dozens of real, substantive taxpayer rights. However, these rights are scattered throughout the Code and are not presented in a coherent way. Consequently, most taxpayers have no idea what their rights are and therefore often cannot take advantage of them.”
Inadequate IRS Funding
The report claims that inadequate funding is one of the greatest taxpayer problems. As a result, taxpayers find it difficult to get questions answered easily as the IRS finds it increasingly difficult to keep pace with taxpayer demand.
“The requirement to pay taxes is generally the most significant burden a government imposes on its citizens,” the report says. “The National Taxpayer Advocate believes the government has a practical and moral obligation to make compliance as simple and painless as possible.”
Other Issues Addressed
The report noted the following concerns as some of the “most serious problems” currently facing taxpayers:
- Need for return preparer oversight.
- The IRS’s conceptual approach toward collection of delinquent tax liabilities.
- The impact of the IRS’s offshore voluntary disclosure programs on taxpayers who make honest mistakes.
- New TAS research studies on tax compliance.
The National Taxpayer Advocate submits two annual reports to the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance. The first report is due every year at the end of June and must detail the TAS’s objectives for the upcoming fiscal year. The second report is due on December 31st, and, in addition to other requirements, must identify 20 of the most serious problems encountered by taxpayers.

Determining how much to charge for services can be the most difficult challenge financial professionals face. Most use a “reverse competition” method of pricing which sets an hourly rate based on what competitors charge and where business owners would like to fit into that spectrum.
Many financial professionals are drawn to mid-range prices; they don’t want to be the most expensive, nor do they want to be the least expensive. Unfortunately, they don’t realize that this mid-range approach does nothing to differentiate them from the competition. In fact, that mid-range position puts them in competition with everyone below, above, and equal to their price-range, a place most business owners wouldn’t want to be.
The Breakdown: Quality, Service, Price
All businesses offer some combination of quality, service, and price.
- These days quality is a given. It’s the ante required to run a business. All financial professionals offer quality service, or at least claim to. Can you imagine a marketing campaign that offered quality options? “Low quality bookkeeping for a low price?” Or perhaps, “When quality doesn’t matter, you can count on us to get your taxes done quick and cheap.” Anyone looking for a financial professional expects quality work, so it’s difficult to set yourself apart by the quality work you offer.
- Service does set businesses apart. You can go to a tax preparer who does quality work but is poor at customer service. Customers value being treated well, and to many a higher price implies better service. Offer exemplary customer service and set the bar high, in many cases beating your competition.
- While some customers will always resist price, regardless of how high or low it may be, most people expect that paying more will get them a better product in the end. Most customers expect a reduction in quality and service when encountering discounted prices. So if you’re trying to offer the cheapest prices around, chances are many expect your services to be “cheap” as well. This pricing method generally doesn’t get tax professionals the business they want and sets a low bar, making it difficult to raise rates and expectations.
Do You Really Want to Function Hourly?
As a business provider, you possess the most leverage before performing a service for a customer; the customer has the greatest leverage after the service has already been performed. Before is the best time to present your customer with a price estimate. This is also the time when a customer will display price resistance. You can, at this point, explain the value of your services, generally dispelling the resistance. If a potential client continues to resist the price estimate, we suggest that rather than reduce your rate in order to eliminate the resistance, you discontinue the relationship and eliminate the potential client. Chances are this client would also resist paying the bill later.
Many financial professionals charge hourly, which limits their earning potential and makes it difficult to raise that hourly rate once it’s set. Another option is to charge by job or project. This allows you to set the price when you have the most leverage. Many find that using this approach enables clients to appreciate the work involved and see the bigger picture and how it benefits their businesses.
As you set your prices based on the value you provide to a potential client, you’ll find that you’re attracting clients who appreciate the work you do and are willing to pay the respective fees. Avoid setting low prices in order to attract more customers; you may discover that this not only lowers your profitability but it attracts clients you would rather not work with. The nature of pricing often requires that the contractor first recognize just how valuable their services are. Once that is established, setting prices becomes much easier.
Ready For the Next Step? Are you tired of thinking, “Why not me?” You have gotten this far in your career, take the next step. The time is now to be able to get the training and the change you desire in your professional life. See if Professional Tax Preparation Certification is a fit for you.

The IRS announced that the 2014 tax season opens on January 31st and ends on April 15th. This start day comes one day later than the opening day last year, partly to give the IRS more time to program and test a new tax processing system.
IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel explained, “Our teams have been working hard throughout the fall to prepare for the upcoming tax season. The late January opening gives us enough time to get things right with our programming, testing and systems validation. It’s a complex process, and our bottom-line goal is to provide a smooth filing and refund process for the nation’s taxpayers.”
In anticipation of the upcoming tax season, the IRS made two additional announcements:
1. Paid tax preparers must renew their PTINs for 2014. Current PTINs expired on December 31, 2013, so tax preparers intending to complete and file returns for clients must renew their PTINs for a $63 fee. Those obtaining PTINs for the first time must create an online account, and their total cost is $64.25.
2. The IRS published a new guide to help taxpayers with their 2013 taxes. According to the IRS website, “Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax, features details on taking advantage of a wide range of tax-saving opportunities, such as the American Opportunity Tax Credit for parents and college students, and the Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit for low- and moderate-income workers. It also features a rundown on tax changes for 2013 including information on revised tax rates and new limits on various tax benefits for some taxpayers.” Publication 17 has been published every year since 1940.

The IRPAC is a federal advisory committee that, using public forums, gathers information regarding reporting issues. Members of the committee come from a cross-section of individuals from the professional community, including tax professionals, financial institutions, small and large businesses, universities and colleges, and securities and payroll firms.
Once a year they submit a report to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue which details new and existing issues needing attention. Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel said, “In their report, IRPAC members provide valuable feedback to the IRS on a wide range of information reporting issues. Committee members have graciously offered their time and expertise. The IRS will carefully consider their recommendations.”
Some of those recommendations include the following:
- Extend truncation of taxpayer identification numbers (TINs) to employer identification numbers (EINs).
- Expand the TIN matching program to permit matching on a greater number of return types.
- Improve instructions to reduce errors on Form 1099-MISC.
- Provide additional guidance with regard to merchant card reporting on Form 1099-K.
The report also includes feedback on cost basis report for debt instruments and reporting requirements under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the Affordable Care Act.
