Recognising Ray McCarthy

Hi there,

You know, sometimes you just have to share a story about somebody else, especially when their journey is just so inspiring.

In July 2012, Ray was struggling to grow his then small Accountancy firm.  Ray was extremely frustrated by how difficult it was to find good people back then.  In fact, Ray was pretty much frustrated with just about every element of running his firm.

Then Ray attended a Best Practice Discovery Workshop Breakfast.

I can still recall the phone call I had with Ray immediately after the event.  I was going through security at Sydney airport.  There was a real sense of urgency in Ray’s voice.  He really wanted things to change for the better and I recall insisting if he could just make a decision to “show up” to our growth / development program each month it would all come together for him sooner than he might believe possible.  Well, there were some frustrating months thereafter as Ray did show up and he learned much about what was ahead for him, the holes in his business model and his lacking of a foundation he could rely on to grow his firm.

Those days are now long behind Ray.  He is winning new business regularly from not just referrals but also from internet marketing strategies we have helped him to develop.  And his talented team are ready to help take his business where he wants it to go.  Ray’s cloud accounting services are impressive and Ray and I are now discussing how we can help him launch some even more innovative ideas like an entrepreneur program for women on the North Side of Sydney.

I love watching this video of Ray receiving his graduation award in Melbourne in January 2016.  Ray’s comments about “I probably would not be an Accountant today… “ warm my heart as I know just how fed up Ray was now nearly four years ago.  Take a brief moment and be reminded of your full potential because you could be just like Ray was and this might be just the inspiration you need to get you off your butt and to book into our upcoming Discovery Workshop in your capital city.
