Cloud-based software solutions that you can access from any location, at any time, are no longer a “nice to have” for an accountant or bookkeeping professional. The components of a connected tech stack are absolutely essential operational assets for any type of business. For many business owners, the thought of selecting the right technologies for this purpose can be overwhelming—but this feeling cannot stop you from taking action! The viability of your business depends on it!
Softball coaching and strategy offer the perfect analogy for how technology should serve your accounting or bookkeeping firm. Here’s a brief overview of the positions on a softball team so you can begin to see that softball is more than a cute theme I use….it really is fundamental to how I have configured my tech stack.
Think about it this way:
In softball, you have positions on your team that you have to fill. In addition, you have players that you need to recruit to fill those positions. Let’s stick with the defensive side of the game. You have a pitcher, catcher, first baseman, second baseman, third baseman, shortstop, left fielder, center fielder, and right fielder.
As a coach, you need to know what the positions are and you need to seek the most talented players to fill those positions. From an accounting practice perspective, the game really is no different. You have certain positions to fill in order to run your firm and to complete client work. Every accounting firm has some positions that are necessary no matter what you provide for services. Then there are the tools you need that are specific to the services you provide. This is what the Team Brolin Starting Lineup is all about.
