What Did You Do This Summer?
Well, the equinox has passed, summer is over and the leaves are turning. For the end of the season, I’d like to share some of what’s happening with me and One 8 Solutions. The first thing I’d like to share is something personal. A wonderful woman moved in with me at the beginning of the summer and because of her contributions in taking care of me and the house that One 8 Solutions lives in, my business is doing better than ever. Some of you who have known me for a long time know that I suffer from the summer doldrums, especially around now (who would have ever thought that!) Because Jenn has been in my life I have been able to fend them off and have the best summer, and my business is set for unprecedented growth. The summer started off with a trip to Scaling New Heights in New Orleans. While it was sweltering hot, we explored the wonderful city of NOLA and ate delicious food. I also attended a great QuickBooks ProAdvisor Conference where I found out/experienced:
- Intuit is committed to their desktop products. This was exemplified by the rollout of 4 new QuickBooks related certifications
- Receipt Bank is now a spotlighted add-on for Intuit Continued meeting with Intuit Developers and Product Managers
- Learned about some neat futures related to QuickBooks Online
- The New Lab feature where you test new features
- I can now schedule support appointments with a dedicated support person
Some other work/personal highlights:
- Spent an extended weekend with a childhood friend in East Hampton where I ate the best ribeye ever
- Hired two part-timers to help with my Managed Services
- Hired 3 part-time bookkeepers for a total of 4
- Engaged a marketing professional to update my website and car graphics/message
- Closed out the summer with an overnight stay in Wellfleet, and of course I surfed with the sharks and had cocktails at the Beachcomber
