20 Great questions every business owner should ask themselves ...


One of the most useful tools we have while reflecting is the power to ask ourselves questions.


It may seem that we already know the answers to our own questions – so what is the point in asking them?


However, the truth is that questions can help us begin thinking in new ways, which can then help us find answers that aren’t immediately apparent.

The majority of our thinking happens unconsciously. And by asking questions we bring our internal thought processes into the spotlight.


At Effective Accountants, as well as doing all the number crunching stuff we ask our clients some really difficult questions. The kind of questions that force our clients to think really deeply about what it is that they want and what their business needs to be like to deliver what they want.


Once we know what you want, we can help you design a business process and a management structure that has the potential to provide the time and money you need to fulfil your dreams.

Small business. The entrepreneurial journey. Call it what you will. It can be a lonely place.


If you’d like more time, more money or maybe more of both then you’ll need to know the answers to some very important questions.
