As much as I love accountants, I did not write these programs with your revenue streams in mind. What drives me is a passion to improve the lifestyles of people not receiving an appropriate financial return for the effort they commit to their businesses.  It just so happens in order to achieve this outcome I truly believe the owners should spend more time and more money with their accountants. And to do this they need to generate more cash flow.

In the 2nd and 3rd course of this Accountants Retreat we will examine in detail how that cash flow will be generated, for now, you can gain an insight into the strategies by watching this short video from the buildabetterbusiness.com website.
