I also recently became an MYOB Bookkeeping Partner. Unfortunately, MYOB is far behind Intuit in building out their training and tools for accountants and bookkeepers. At any rate, I’m happy to be a partner with MYOB and have free access to their technical support team.
I’ve always hated being called a “nag”. I think my husband is actually the only person to ever say “STOP nagging me!” It seems I’m often put in the position of being the “nag” and I’ve always thought it was an awful character flaw.
Recently, I realized, I’m the work “nag” for a couple of my clients. I need to find a better word for it (please help me out with that). I tend to be drawn to clients who are unorganized, have a lot going on in their business lives, and are creative, big picture thinkers. Because of those characteristics, they rarely get to their list of “things to do for Kelly” in a timely manner.
Twice in the past week, I’ve followed up with these clients to nag them for the information I need to get them the information they need (and the appropriate government agencies too, of course). I follow up regularly with them because my strengths are the opposite of theirs. I’m great at organizing, details, and follow up.
