Have you wondered why is it that some businesses thrive in San Francisco while others close before the ink dries on the Grand Opening sign? What is it that truly makes a business successful? Some new business owners may think it’s a trendy new product, like 9-hour-cold-drip-coffee (yes, that’s a real thing).

Or a top quality service offering old-school style customized footwear at a hefty price to match. These products can be popular in the short-term. The longevity of a product or service really depends on the folks running the business. Over time, a few solid characteristics show up in every successful company. Here are some of the things prosperous businesses seem to have in common.

Have a Passion for What You Do
Do you know someone who is just really into what they do? Whether it’s a WAN project engineer or one of our own CPA’s, they are “geek’d out” on their profession. Sure, on an average day you not be that interested in what they have to say, but when you need an expert, these are the first people you’ll seek out for advice. Their enthusiasm is what helps keep them bring their “A game” to customers. To be the best SF accountant, or anything else, it takes an undying passion for your craft.

Always Learn More
Whether it’s attending conferences, subscribing to periodicals or hanging out with like-minded experts, the thirst for knowledge is consistent. Many fields, like accounting can offer new twists and turns daily. There is always a new IRS audit procedure to consider or a revised LLC tax preparation detail to review. Being the best CPA in San Francisco means staying on top of what’s new in the industry. Successful San Francisco business owners love learning more about their field!

Customized Customer Service
“Best in Customer Service” is what all businesses like to advertise, but actions speak louder than words. Great service is really how a customer is treated once they choose a service. A successful business is flexible enough to meet the needs of all customer and offer the individual care they really need. If tax preparation is required, our expert Bay Area CPA’s listen first, then help guide the client to what will work best for them. Even if you focus on only one product like accounting, the best service is customized to fit the customer.

Do it Right the First Time
To be the best accountant in San Francisco, or the best in anything else, get it right the first time. Remember the “passion” we noted above? Part of that means paying attention to detail and serving only the most perfect, final product. There is a movie called “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” It is about an older Japanese man who has made it his goal to offer only the best of the simplest sushi dishes. He serves his sushi in a very small restaurant, but people from all over the world travel there to experience his food. When you do things right the first time, customers tell their friends. It’s the best kind of networking!
