By Diana Miller

When asked if I’d be interested in co-authoring an anthology book called “Results! – Impactful Solutions to Drive Business”, my first thought was “Is this something I can do?” Immediately, I stopped my “old Diana” thinking and said “Of course I can and I should take this opportunity.” Too often we let opportunities like this pass us by, and my word of advice would be, if you are truly passionate about achieving a goal you must believe in yourself, stay on track and be positive. You CAN get the results you’re working towards!

With almost 20-years of accounting experience working with a plethora of businesses and non-profit organizations, I wanted to share my personal and professional experiences so others are able to benefit from them. I started my chapter by discussing my journey and why I believe determination is important. I shared lessons I learned along the way: stop making excuses, impact others in a positive way and step out of your comfort zone. Lastly, seeing as I work at a wonderful accounting firm, I discussed a few tips to help my audience in choosing the right accountant. I feel it’s important to have a connection with your accountant and to be sure they are proactive and accessible. These are just a few of my many lessons shared and they did not always come easily; however they sure helped me along the way.  I am positive these lessons and tips can be utilized by anyone in any profession and will help you think like an entrepreneur.

If my chapter can make a positive change in just one entrepreneur’s career, I’ll be happy. All things in life do not come easily but it’s about staying the course, seizing that opportunity and paying it forward – that is what life is about.
