I am pretty new here, but very happy to have located this "place". It is inspiring and informative - and provides a great mind break at times.
So, my husband & I started a PI agency recently. We are working out the kinks & starting to forge ahead w/ business, marketing ideas, etc. I keep telling him we will look back & laugh when we are busy up to our eyeballs.
Here`s my thing. I am a degreed accountant w/ 10 years experience in large corporate entities & small business start up (from a financial, management, and policy perspective). If I can toot my own horn, I can kick some serious behind in this area. So, I started slightly marketing my self a couple days ago & have picked up one new client & one more on the line for discussion. Wow - is this easy or am I lucky?? Perhaps it is easy because I am passionate about this aspect of what I do - I love it!
I had another firm contact me on Friday to try to sign me up to send me prescreened leads as well. I haven`t decided if I want to take that route, but may - cost is very low & the firm is new and in need of accountants & consultants to take the referrals.
I am not sure that I have a purpose for this post other than to see it - seeing is believing, right? I am just so excited at the moment that I want to work 24/7 & grow, grow, grow.
Anyone want to pop my bubble, as I may be in a state of euphoria now & need a reality check?
