Fortnightly group coaching and accountability calls
Every fortnight you are invited to a virtual group coaching and accountability call. In this 60-90 minute call you will have a chance to get help on your issues from other club members, as well as get accountability for your planned actions for the next two weeks.
Access to over 140+ resources in the club membership library
Members get access to all the resources in the club membership site. The membership site grows by at least 3+ resources each month. In fact, new resources are normally built in response to member requests. Included within the membership library are new business scripts, process maps, marketing plans, recordings, role descriptions, tip sheets… and much, much more. Here is a full list of resources in the membership library. 
Mini training programmes
Every 3-4 months the club puts on a mini-training programme for members and/or their staff. Typically the training programmes are 3-4 months in length and involve virtual masterclasses, group coaching calls and self-study. The mini-training programmes planned for the next 12 months include:

  • 1st line manager training (starting sept 2018)
  • Double your practice efficiency (starting feb 2019)
  • Win £3k+ clients every time (May 2019)
Live Surgery Sessions
In the monthly live surgery sessions you have the opportunity to quiz an advisory board member (or ordinary member who has done something well!) on some aspect of growing an accountancy practice which they have done well. Surgery sessions have included the following so far:

  • How to do a fee increase
  • How to grow a high performing team from scratch
  • How to generate more referrals
Monthly member spotlight
In the monthly member spotlight session you will be able to listen in (and ask questions) whilst a club member works on a specific issue they have. For example this could be:

  • How to build a recruitment strategy for your firm
  • How to automate your practice

All members have the option of attending an in-person quarterly board meeting where they can:

  • Discuss and get input on their plans for the next quarter
  • Get accountability and learn from their fellow board members
  • Bring their current issues to the table to help resolve

The cost of this option is £300 + VAT per month

Optional: Physical events
The club is starting to put on workshops and get togethers for members. We have a planned drinks for pre-Xerocon, plus quarterly workshops in conjunction with Practice Ignition. As much as possible club members will be entitled to free tickets or discounts to club events.

Before I joined the club it was fair to say I was out of control. I was working crazy hours and trying to do everything myself. I was lacking direction and also not spending enough time with my young family. 

After 3 months as a club member I have more than paid for my club membership. Through learning from others and how they did things I have won 6 new clients, worth in total £30k of annual recurring fees. I couldn’t have done this without the club and its resources. I used the club’s proposal template, webinar on pricing, and confidence from listening to other club members to quote what I was really worth. In fact, now when I talk about pricing, my clients tend to always opt for my two highest priced packages rather than the lowest priced package.   

As well as the resources in the club I have taken full advantage of the membership benefits such as the 10% discount off my first 12 months fees from Practice ignition. 

My time is now far more under control and my practice is growing steadily but surely. The club is great at building me resources or tools I need to help me achieve my practice goals. Be it ‘best practice process maps’ or ‘scripts for my team to use with new client enquiries’, Heather and her team are always looking after us. I get a confidence boost every time I speak to Heather and the team and reassurance that I can do this.

I’m also enjoying running my practice, now I am not having to do everything and all things to all people.

I've known Heather for 6 years, and nearly managed to sign up to work with her and her team at several points over those 6 years. 

All it took was our Growth Accelerator call and suddenly I had the motivation and accountability to make things happen in my practice.
Prompted by our discussion in the Growth Accelerator Call, within 24 hours, I had identified and implemented enough cost savings to be able to fund the entire cost of Grow membership. 
 
If you are reading this and having some doubts about whether to take the plunge and join the club, don't be like me and wait. I'm actually kicking myself now that I didn't take the leap 12 months ago to come on board with the Accountants Millionaires' Club. My bank balance and happiness with my practice would now be SO much healthier if I had taken action 12 months ago. 
Bob Evans

Owner, React Accountancy

I met Heather when I won Best New Practice at the British Accountancy Awards in 2016 and didn’t think that she could help me, I now know that was wrong!

My practice growth last year was excellent but my systems were poor and I had exceeded capacity, and I could see where I needed to take the business. I Just needed the clarity to work out the next steps to take my practice to the next step. We are no longer a start up practice and couldn't afford to live like we were a start up practice. This meant needing to put in stricter workflows and processes as well as building a strong team. 

I wish I had listened to Heather in 2016. After just one call, I started to get the clarity - and reassurance that I was doing a lot right. A very unexpected benefit was that within a month of being in the club I had saved over £10,500 by changing software suppliers and the impact of quoting and billing new clients at the right level.

Being a member of the club is far more than just a coaching relationship. I am dipping into the club's huge library of resources from time to time, as well as coming on the fortnightly group accountability calls.

When you are busy helping other business to grow you tend to overlook your own business, so with the accountability from the group accountability calls I am held to task and can really see me doing what is necessary to grow my practice.  I'm also learning from other members and how they are overcoming their problems. The coaching calls and group accountability calls are giving me much needed time for reflection, and will lead to far more time on the golf course to attend to my deteriorating handicap which is about to move from 20 to 21.
