Paolo Quattrone (@PaoloQuattrone) joins Money on the Left to discuss the metaphysics of accounting and the significance of accounting's repressed history for political economy today. Professor of Accounting, Governance & Society at The University of Manchester, Quattrone insists that, while often seen as a positivist and merely technical skill for recording extant data, accounting in truth represents a rhetorical and quite generative engagement with the “mystery of value.” This mystery, Quattrone reminds us, informs nearly all aspects of collective life. Genealogy is central to Quattrone's work and, in our conversation, we explore how numbers, figures, and visual arrangements used in contemporary accounting trace complex and often surprising lineages that have a lot to teach us about accounting's still untapped possibilities. Along the way, we touch upon two of Quattrone's most important case studies. First, we delve into the Jesuit order's rich contributions to early-modern accounting, including its development of double-entry bookkeeping. Then, we turn to the more recent history of “I.R.I.,” the Italian “Institute for Industrial Construction” which, even as it served as administrative arm of the Marshall Plan, underwrote the midcentury period of prosperity known as la dolce vita by precisely rejecting the ideology of “profit maximization” promulgated by The United States. We conclude, finally, by rethinking money's futurity through Quattrone's approach to accounting. If spending tomorrow is never flatly predicated upon yesterday's inert data in the form of receipts or revenue, we suggest, then it instead derives from mobilizing accounting practices in the present to create new credit and debt relations “endogenously” in response to shifting circumstances. You can find Quattrone's publications here: https://www.research.manchester.ac.uk/portal/en/researchers/paolo-quattrone(4b8a4f45-fecc-422c-8991-8bfc9f1e4efd)/publications.htmlVisit our Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/MoLsuperstructureMusic by Nahneen Kula: www.nahneenkula.com

You'll learn: Why you must perform a daily closeout What you can do to optimize your accounts payable How to automate your income and expenses For the first seven years that Louis was in business, he ran his moving company essentially blind because he didn't really know his numbers.

It wasn't until the recession hit in 2008 and money got tight, that Louis realized he didn't really know where any of the money was. Talk about a scary feeling! After sitting down with his accountant and actually learning how to run his business from the numbers, Louis finally found the clarity he needed, and fortunately, he was able to make it through the recession. A lot of companies didn't make it. In this ninth episode of the Moving CEO Scaling Series, Louis shares his top 5 accounting processes that will help give you the clarity and sense of control that you need over your business in order to grow and make big decisions.

It's not fun. But, it's one of the most important fundamentals of your company and you need to have every number dialed in if you want to scale your business quickly and confidently.

This Podcast Is Episode Number 447, And It's About Why Getting The Leads And Doing The Work Are Still Not Good Enough There was a time when a contractor put a simple ad in the paper or a line listing in the Yellow Pages, and they would have more leads than they could handle. It was the only way to go, and the contractors who insist on that and "Word of Mouth" do not survive. Could those contractors have avoided failure? I believe they could have. This article explores the top reasons construction businesses fail and the three key questions that every contractor like you needs to ask to prevent failure. It would be best to answer these questions to provide a clear path to your continued and future growth and success. Contractors who did not move from simple ads that had always worked, and evolved a Marketing Plan made the same mistake other failed companies and brands made. They were unable to Innovate, Reinvent, and Evolve by having a deep understanding of what business they were in, who and what they were competing with, and by challenging themselves to understand their actual expertise. It's important to plan to give your construction business the best chances for success. Planning means anticipating challenges and developing ways to successfully address them, so they don't upend your construction company. Here are the top reasons why your construction company could still fail: Lack of market demand You need to have a market to make money. That means there needs to be enough people who need your service and are willing to pay money to hire you. Without that, you won't be able to cover your costs or earn enough to survive. Before you spend your time, money, and energy starting a business, make sure there's a need for it. Some ways you can identify needs: Look for competition. If no one else is offering the service, there's a chance there's no market for it. That might not initially stop you from moving forward, but if no one already offers your product or service—or anything close to it—you'll have to do more to prove there's a market. Conduct market research. Studies and interviews help determine whether people in your target market agree with you that there is a need for your offering and that they would pay for it. Lack of expertise Contractors like you might be tempted to partner with or hire their friends or family—people they genuinely like and would work well with. That doesn't always translate to success, however. For your business to be successful, you need specific expertise, and you need people whose skills complement yours. You also need people who are willing to discuss your decisions with you and make sure there's a business case to be made for each decision you make. Someone with a differing perspective provides a vital way to double-check whether your choices are best in the long-term for your business or whether other options are available. Ensure you hire people with balanced competencies. If your roofing business involves installing solar panels, you might need a technical expert to ensure the technology runs smoothly. You'll likely also need a financial expert to help you with bookkeeping and possibly a manager to oversee employees. It's OK to hire people you like, but make sure your team also has the skills to attend your business successfully. Lack of finances You need money to produce your services and ensure all employees are paid. It's not enough to know how much money you need month-to-month; you need to forecast your development cycle, how inventory moves through your supply chain and variations in seasonal income. If your construction business doesn't earn as much in the first few months as you predicted, you'll need to bring in more money quickly to save your business. Ask Yourself: What are you offering? New construction, remodeling, or service and repair? Who is your competition? DIY, other contractors, money homeowners for a construction project? What is your real competency? Residential, Commercial, or both? The Truth Is Four Levels Deep! Challenging yourself is the key to answering these questions. Write your answers on paper or computer, sleep on them and then revisit them again and again until you get to the truth. Getting The Leads And Doing The Work Is Only Part Of The Answer Not answering them and acting on the knowledge is one reason why so many construction companies shrivel and die. They focus on the wrong areas to innovate or improve. They focus on the wrong enemy and threat. As a result, they miss what they could be doing to succeed and prosper over time. Define The Type Of Contracting You Offer And Who Is Your Competition It may not be the same form, structure, and category that you operate. For example, Home Depot does not see itself competing in the building supply business but for a share of the home and commercial remodel and repair market. Be that homeowner doing a weekend project, Handyman Contractors, Remodel Contractor, Trade Contractor, and other contractors and House Builders. This approach and behavior across the organization, too, saw themselves as fighting for a share of the building supply market. Final thoughts It is straightforward to get caught up in the short term and what you have today. You measure your share in the particular segment you operate in and obsess about your immediate competition just as contractors who did not market effectively did years ago. But you need to step back and ask yourself the three key questions and make sure you answer them in a way that will define and liberate your construction company at the same time. Also, keep in mind that you can significantly improve your odds of success by planning, being strategic with who you hire, ensuring there's a market for your offerings, and considering alternative funding sources.

Thanks for tuning into the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom. Today, we're diving into your questions and feedback from last week's episode on operational systems. We'll break down which systems to focus on, what categories to start with, and more. A primary question that was received was what systems to focus on. This entirely depends on you. The first thing you want to create an operational system for is the one you know you shouldn't be doing. Next, storage is a crucial aspect of your operational systems. Consider managing your projects in a platform like Asana and saving all your materials in Dropbox or G Suite. That way, when you're trying to delegate training or allow your team to learn for themselves, they can find everything they need. It's certainly a lot in the beginning, getting everything up and running. Categories can be an incredibly useful strategy for staying organized as a new business owner. Some umbrella categories that fit into just about any business are these: Finance and Accounting, Marketing and Sales, Services and Products, and Delivery and Team. Think of these as an outline with subcategories to specify where to save your work. Key Takeaways The first thing you want to create an operational system for is the one you know you shouldn't be doing. Storage is a crucial aspect of your operational systems. Consider managing your projects in a platform like Asana and saving all your materials in Dropbox or G Suite. Categories can be an incredibly useful strategy for staying organized as a new business owner.

This Podcast Is Episode Number 446, And It's About Practical Tips For Encouraging Repeat High-Profit Clients Many data support the idea that it's less costly, easier, and more efficient to encourage repeat customers than bring in new ones. Among the stats Hubspot lists are: that a 5% increase in customer retention is responsible for more than 25% increase in profit; repeat customers are nine times more likely to convert than first-time visitors, and a 2% increase in customer retention has a similar impact to your bottom line as reducing costs by 10%. Understand The High-Profit Client - Most of them have personality traits commonly known as drivers - folks who are accustomed to getting things done quickly and efficiently. They do not mind paying professionals to service, repair, or build new construction projects related to their houses and commercial buildings. Design and develop your internal customized systems and processes when and where it makes sense. As much as possible, when it is cheaper to buy something ready-made for a fraction of what it costs you to do-it-yourself then buy it. Systems, Systems, Systems - You need systems (a system is simply a collection of processes built upon an understanding of what works and each method has been tried and tested). Without systems or a desire to "wing it" and see what happens will bring out the animal in these people, and they have been known to cause construction business a great deal of harm and financial pain. First, Design External Systems For the money trail (contract amount, deposits, change orders, payments) For project milestones and projected completion dates (when change orders occur, update the completion date) Cause the least amount of grief and interruptions to their lives Ensure they make the fewest possible decisions (they make decisions all day long) To make sure nobody ever tries to "educate" them about construction (they don't care, that's why they hired you!) Then, follow along these four practical tips to encourage your high-profit clients to keep coming back. 1. Build relationships with clients Take time to learn more about your customers. Do they mention family members? Ask about their loved ones. Do they have particular concerns? For instance - too many cable cords around the house and they have small children. Keep track of their issues and be attentive to their needs. Recommend solutions that address their specific problems. Go the extra mile to show your customers they're important to you. Ask for their input, as well. They'll get to know your products and services and offer insights into what's working and what could be improved. If you engage them--and make changes based on their feedback--you'll develop a loyal customer base. The more special your clients feel, the more likely they are to hire you again. They'll appreciate your thoughtfulness and value your service. 2. Make it personal Your loyal clients deserve communications that are more personal and less formal. Using impersonal emails for your more extensive email list is fine, but use more personal touches with your best customers. Phone them or suggest an in-person meeting if you want to let them know about an essential business-related matter. Keep track of important dates, as well. You can send gifts or cards to mark important occasions or to reach out. Make your best customers feel they stand out from the rest by being more personal with them. 3. Share relevant information Still, if you get to know your customers well, you can pass along articles, books, or other information that might interest them, even if it isn't related to your business. Newsletters are a great way to stay in touch with your customers and let them know what you're up to. It shows them you understand and you care. 4. Remember your loyal clients Businesses sometimes focus their attentions exclusively on new customers, forgetting about loyal and repeat customers. You need new customers to keep your business thriving; however, excluding long-term customers creates customer churn. It's great to offer new customers rewards and incentives, but that leaves existing customers feeling ignored. Offer your long-term customers bonuses for their loyalty. Final thoughts The Key Here Is To Get In And Get Out Fast - And they will love you for it! The high-profit client has more money than time, so more than most people; their time is worth a lot more to them than you can imagine. Encouraging repeat customers makes solid business sense. To be successful, you need a balance of new and long-term clients. This means building relationships with people, personalizing your attention, sharing relevant information, and remembering your loyal customers. A great product or service at a reasonable price might bring your customers in, but outstanding customer service that gives them a positive, memorable experience will keep them coming back.

Herein lies a toast to what most investors consider to be the boringest financial instrument out there: Bonds.

We talk about the importance of Accounting and accurate data on the show all the time. Maybe it's because I am not that great at it and am always looking for ways to get better and/or partner with people that are smarter than I am in these areas. During episode 348, we spent time discussing specific brands of Accounting software, and I made some ridiculous comments that got one of those companies up in our grill to defend their product. I love it. Todd Salkovitz has been representing AccountEdge for over 26-years. Now part of Priority Software, Todd is here to call me out on my comment, and I'm glad he did.

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure. By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff. By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones. (Hebrews 11:4, 17-22) 29 But, look, the church natural, it's just the church carnal. They're never able to get above that little thing of “I joined church. If I go to church, if I do the best I can, that's all God requires.” Now, that's the same thing Cain done. He went and made a altar. He made a sacrifice, brought the fruits of the land. And he said, “Here it is, God. That's the best I got. Take it or leave it.” That's the way the carnal believer believes today. “Lord, I'll go to church. I'll join the best group that I can find. I'll pay in my dues to the church. I'll do what's right. Now, here's the best I can do. I'll help buy some coal for the widow. Or, I'll give the children some clothing.” Them's all right, nothing to say against it. “But that's it, that's all. If You want it, take it; if You don't, You don't have to take it.” Now, that's the attitude of the church carnal today. 30 But the church spiritual! Abel, by revelation, by grace, he seen beyond that, and by faith he offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain. And it testified of his righteousness, God. 31 The same thing took place in Ishmael and Isaac. One was of the flesh, and the other one was of the Spirit. One, of the bondswoman; one, of the freewoman. 32 It happened the same thing in Israel and Moab, two great churches coming together. And when Israel was wanting to go to their promised place, church spiritual, Jacob's people, Israel on the road; Esau's people met them, Moab, church powerful. And the great leader of the church, Balaam, came down to curse his brother, but he found that he could not curse his brother. He failed, with the blindness of his eyes, to see the predestinated plan, that, and to see the Word of God. 33 First, “Faith cometh by hearing, hearing of the Word of God.” Then the believer hears It, recognizes It, and acts on It. The carnal man will hear It, the sound of It, but never…Hear means to “understand” It. Look at, is looking at something; but to see it, is to “understand” it. “Except a man be born again, he cannot see or understand the Kingdom of God.” 60-0221 - "Hearing, Recognizing, Acting On The Word Of God" Rev.

The past year has taken a huge toll on both tax professionals and taxpayers, something Taxgirl talks about frequently. According to a 2021 survey from Robert Half, more than 44% of employees say they are more burned out on their jobs today than they were a year ago. Employers and employees are seeking all kinds of solutions to burnout and the labor shortage. “People want to work in peace, not in pieces.” In today's age of workplace burnout, retaining happy and healthy employees is more important than ever. On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Iralma Pozo to discuss how tax professionals can prioritize their wellbeing to curb burnout. Iralma is an independent consultant with more than 15 years of financial expertise, and an adjunct lecturer in Accounting at John Jay College in New York. She is an active member of the New York State Society of CPAs, and most of her experience is in the not-for-profit sector, having held financial leadership and public accounting related roles. She has also worked for the IRS, and has experience working with entrepreneurs, small businesses, and the real estate and insurance sectors. Listen to Kelly and Iralma talk about burnout and workplace wellbeing:What does Iralma think the tax code and related provisions can offer taxpayers, and how can tax professionals remain fulfilled and excited about their careers? Working from home (and spending more leisure time at home) means we are sitting more often than we used to. Iralma and Kelly talk about how standing desks, the benefits of carpet, and going for walks can all impact a person's mental wellbeing and productivity. How much of an employee's wellbeing falls on the employer? What items, practices, or trainings are truly “essential” to efficient and healthy remote work? What are the tax credits and/or benefits available to businesses to help them make employees most comfortable and prepared in such trying times? So many businesses say they've already accommodated everything they thought could be useful, so what else is there to help put their employees at ease? What are some things employers can do to turn things around for their employees? Iralma references Section 139, to start. Kelly says, happy employees are productive employees. Where does mental health and mental illness factor into employee wellbeing? Iralma talks about the remaining stigma with mental health, and what employers can do to bridge that gap. Iralma says, “Employers should be looking at supporting the whole person.” What does that mean for all aspects of an employee's work? Does it mean cutting down on meetings, covering therapy costs, offering more flexible hours? How can companies take into account “modern day living,” as Iralma calls it, and what can be done to ease the pressure on employees? Some companies like Bloomberg have started to offer anonymous tiered benefits (such as therapy) that have levels available to the employee without cost out of pocket. How are these services impacting the employee's wellbeing, for better or worse? How are these services being communicated? How can employers simplify their accommodations and benefits to their employees? So many employees say they weren't aware of certain benefits or didn't know they could submit a certain expense. Whether it's regular emails or an annual follow-up, HR departments can remind their employees of the benefits available to them. “Employers need to start incentivizing people by the results and the value, not just the utilization rates and the facetime,” Iralma says. People have new priorities these days, and when employers don't respect those, it contributes to stress and burnout. How can employers reshape the notion of “fun” or “perks” into self care, while maintaining the same level of priority and respect for employees that desire those aspects? Ultimately, employers are dealing with real people. Different...

We discuss how to set, approach, and accomplish goals, ways to avoid overthinking, how to turn ideas into money, and other mindset ideas that contribute to successful entrepreneurship. John and I have been friends for awhile, and I am so glad to finally have him on the podcast! John and I discuss his journey and how he got to where he is today. A common misconception in business is that you need to know your niche right away. In reality, you will find your niche, and your passion, along the way. One of the important mindset topics we discuss is about controlling your thoughts. Thoughts and a way of thinking can make or break a deal, as well as contribute to the success of a business overall. One thing that stuck with me was when John said that a lot of people think a thought is something you have and not something you hone. I hope you can find some ideas you can take from the podcast and apply them to yourself! Mindset, goals, accomplishing goals, mindset ships, business mindset, overthinking, entrepreneurs, All is takes is a goal
