Embracing the cloud- do or die

Many accounting firms really don't want to embrace the cloud.  Its easier to ignore the change, and keep doing what they have always done.  I believe that is the wrong approach, and will cost them clients down the road.

When I started Quicksilver Business Solutions the very first criteria was it had to be virtual. I wanted the option to work anywhere in the world on any giving day (pretty demanding for back in 2007).  Recently, I was in the Oceania Cruises Barista Bar at 6am watching them cruise between two huge mountains on our way to Montenegro, all while sipping an espresso and working on my laptop updating a clients QuickBooks Online file.   I had certainly reached my goal.  And I think many clients feel the same way...

To that end, I recently spent a few months taking the five part test to become an Advanced Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor and just  attained that level.   As an expert in this area, I am with a very small percentage that have attained this level, and even smaller for those who, like me, have received their Advanced Desktop Certification as well.  These certifications are important for me to be at the top of my game and get the best discounts for my clients as well.

I look forward to helping my clients find the software that make sense for their business, and making their life easier by connecting their live QBO file to banking, credit cards, paypal, and all the various apps that might help them become free to move around as I do.  We live in a mobile world, and accounting professionals should be making the best strides to accommodate our entrepreneurs.
