It’s not (just) about the money…

One of the great things about being a small business with no shareholders to answer to is that we can set our own agenda.  We’ve always been keen on supporting charities – both financially and with our time – but over the last few months we’ve taken that up a notch or two.

Our latest enterprise is the ‘Give a Goat’ programme.  For every referral we get we’ll buy a goat for an African family.  There’s four real benefits to this:-

1. People in real need benefit.  Goats can be a source of milk, wool and can be traded.

2.  The clients who we’ve trialled this with have felt great about the fact that people in real need have benefitted – just by mentioning us as being a good accountant worth speaking to.

3.  The friends they’ve referred get to deal with us 🙂

4. We (hopefully) get some more work as a result.

I hope you think it’s a good idea.
