“Don’t think that on Day 1, the new recruit is going to be 100% productive. Make sure you have capacity for training – you will get more out of your recruits when you invest time in them.”

 

“Don’t just hire 1. Start off with 2 people and then hire in 1’s if you need to.”

 

“Offshoring has helped us drive down time and drive up dollars.”

 

“Make sure that you keep 100% up to date with all the latest efficiency tools – Xero, Receipt Bank, etc. Without these, you will not be making a decent profit.”

 

“Accounting is not just crunching numbers anymore. It’s also about marketing.”
