Case Example: The Accountant

Kemmie worked for a large national consulting firm. He liked being an accountant. He liked the organized way in which debits and credits fit together. To Kemmie, it was almost like an art form the way one change in the numbers here, had an effect on another number there. When asked to describe the results, Kemmie would write out a complete and thorough explanation of what was happening. He was good at explaining the cause and effect of changes in the financial picture.

Early in his career, one of his reports was published by a major trade publication, and suddenly found himself becoming the firm’s expert analyst. Kemmie began to write more and more case studies, and getting more and more articles published.

The exposure and increased stature the articles gave him made it easy for senior management to market him for more and larger projects. When they needed an expert to analyze the trends in the insurance industry, or explain the benefits of plant expansion, the exposure his articles gave him allowed Kemmie to be called in.

Frequently, while presenting his analysis, Kemmie also got the opportunity to sell as well. He began to leverage his report writing by modifying the same report to fit alternate situations so that it could be presented to more than one publication. Soon he began to use his articles as the basis for speeches. Kemmie soon rose to become head of the regional office for his firm, and a major player in his firm.

When clients hire a practitioner, they want to feel comfortable with that individual. The most common method of satisfying their need for comfort is for them to select a practitioner who is a recognized expert in their field. In the example, Kemmie satisfied that condition. By being a published speaker, and recognized by others in his field, Kemmie achieved the status of being a recognized expert. » Read more: The Case For An Accounting Professional Becoming Published

July 16th, 2012 by admin No comments »

If your job sucks, and the hour-long journey towards office and back home seems never-ending, you should seriously think of making money at home; like answering surveys online. It is one of the best solutions not only for students, but also for moms, looking after their kids, and retired people. But what are the magic secrets that can give you the maximum earning from online surveys?

1. Promptness

The first secret of success in answering surveys online is the quickness with which you have to react. Most of the surveys are time bound and are for a specific number of members and limited time. The moment they get that many members participating, they close that particular survey. Thus you should revert to their mail almost immediately and participate in the survey. Many members lose a lot of income by delaying to react.

2. Go for niche surveys, they pay more

Participate in all surveys, (pay range is $5 – $75) but definitely do participate in surveys that most people will not participate (pay range $150 – $200). While general surveys pay you moderate incomes, since once they are floated, thousands of members participate; niche surveys (meaning surveys on small interest groups) on the other hand pay more, since few people participate in these surveys. For example, a survey on the use of electronics gadgets will be answered by everyone; but one on the use of homeopathic medicine will be answered by few. Do not leave it, while answering surveys online, since it will be a high paying one.

3. Keep all doors open for maximum earning

Do not shut any door. Keep as many doors open as possible for the maximum earning. While making your profile, include almost everything, so that you get the maximum number of surveys.

4. Participate in prize competitions as well
