If you spend too much time on #TaxTwitter or within certain industry discussion boards or Facebook groups, there is a good chance that all of the curve balls that the IRS has thrown us (hello Q1 estimates) have you pretty … frustrated.

And that’s completely understandable, given the fact that the IRS still hasn’t finished processing millions of 2019 returns, and the only bone they threw us was one month.

But this is exactly why you should spend less time in groups like these.

That old chestnut, “You are the average of the five people you spend time with most,” is actually true.

Which is why you HAVE to find places to lift your vision, and get your head out of that mental space where “everyone is making my life difficult.”

Here’s a great place to start.

We hosted a webinar recently on managing all of the ARPA madness, 3rd stimulus, and all of the changes being thrown our way — and we got REALLY granular in the details.

But one of the surprising things about this webinar was how many attendees were chatting into me during the presentation with comments like: “This is SO UPLIFTING!” and “Thank you for raising my vision for what is possible!” or “I forgot how much fun you guys were!”

My co-presenters brought knowledge, resources, and wisdom about ARPA and all things management/pricing and more. I’ve gathered the links mentioned, as well as the Q&A transcript, and audio/video download links for you right here.

Go check it out, and lift your vision a little (as well as get your questions about ARPA answered).

Remember: Your clients need you to keep your head in the game, and focused on serving them (at the right price).

This doesn’t mean you don’t guard the scope of your engagements — you must — but it DOES mean that you step away from the “IRS/Congress griping” bar a little … and find the best path for serving your clients WELL.
