Growth Story: How Graeme Morris Turned a Declining Practice Into a Flourishing Business

By Becky Rogers | April 15, 2024

A journey from grumpy to grateful and from worried to winning (on the way to growing to £400k!). In 2022, Graeme Morris of Cloud Accountancy Ltd was struggling. He was just over £100k in turnover, but the practice was declining, clients were leaving, and his mental health was not at a good level. It felt…

A rollercoaster tale of entrepreneurial and personal discovery, business scalability, and not being afraid to start again.

AND ARE NORMALLY ONE OF THESE

4 TYPES OF PEOPLE:

Cheetah

“Get me there quickly”

You are only happy when your practice is growing and you are winning clients. But you need a sounding board, and a voice of reason to stop you being your own worst enemy, help you sort out your processes, give you an occasional confidence booster and stop you from making too many mistakes along the way.

Team building

“I’m building something to (eventually) sell”

You have been running your practice for a while, and are looking to kick start your firm’s growth, but also fall in love with running your practice again. You want and need support to reduce your working hours and stress levels. You are happy with steady, but sustainable growth.

Jigsaw1

“I’m not a normal practice owner”

You are either not an accountant or have never worked in a small accountancy firm before you bought or started it. You want to shortcut your journey to grow your practice by learning from the most innovative and progressive cloud-based accountants. But you still want to build your practice your way.

Pound

“I need the right type of clients”

Your practice and bank balance would be much healthier if you could just win the right type of clients, who would pay what your firm is really worth. Once you have fixed your firm’s pricing and marketing woes, there will be no stopping you. You like learning from advisors who are experts and really understand accountants.

 Stuck and need to know where to start to kickstart your firm's growth?

On a recent poll, over 50% of growing accounting firm owners said that they felt stuck. It was 1 step forward and then 3 steps back... but they couldn't go back.

Can you relate?

It's one thing knowing you want to grow and scale your accounting firm. It's another thing to know where to make the changes.

Over the last 20 years of helping hundreds of accountancy firms grow, we've learnt that there are 11 categories which will define how success or not the growth of your practice will be. We've put this into a free assessment to help you identify where you need to get started.

Answer the questions and we’ll send you a personalised report to show you the areas you need to focus on to grow and scale your practice - the low stress way.

Our assessment has been tried and tested by 100s of owners of small accountancy, fractional FD, bookkeeping and tax firms.

You'll receive the results and a personalised report instantly.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY ABOUT US

Shaileen Shah

Shaileen Shah

Price Mann

We added over £200k in one year with the club's help.

We’ve gone through huge change on restructuring our team, our processes, and have also gone through a massive fee increase! 

The support that the club and the club members have given us has been immense and I can’t thank Heather and the team enough.

Ivan Rogove

Rogove and Co

Within a few months of joining the club my practice was transformed.

I feel visible, and connected to a group of like-minded business owners running varied accountancy practices of all shapes, sizes and specialisms. 

I feel valued by the AGC members and I value each of them too.  Heather and her team have all the tools I need to develop my practice, and those resources are readily available to me. 

The Daily Power Ups are a real highlight, a fabulous way to start the working day.  Just the right mix of mutual professional respect, banter, ‘say it like it is’, and a willingness to share what works and what does not in practice life. 

I highly recommend Heather, her team, and The Accountants’ Growth Club.

Graeme morris

Graeme Morris

Cloud Accountancy

My practice has grown by 150% in 18 months.

The club has given me the confidence, clarity and accountability to stop playing small.

When I joined the club my turnover had shrunk to under £100k. We’ve finished last financial year turning over £250k, and on track to reach £400k this year.

With the help of the club and their in-house marketing service AGC Digital, I am now getting a regular supply of new business of exactly the type of clients I like working with.

I've been a member of most of the accountants' communities in the UK. The Accountants' Growth Club has been the only one which has helped me sustainably take the step up in my business.

Leonard Business Services

From clueless about business development to winning £140k per annum of new business within 9 months of joining the club.

Before I joined the club the growth of my business had plateaued for the last 3 years, and I was in danger of losing some of my portfolio due to succession. My confidence has grown so much around business development, I'm even advising my clients on their own sales process. When you consider that I still need to update and redo my website, winning £140k of new business within 9 months is nothing short of remarkable.

My highest monthly recurring fee used to be £250 per month. With the club's help my average monthly fee is now £500 per month.

I have been on coaching programmes before but never one so specifically aimed at accountants.

I just felt they understood where I was at and where I wanted to be. The amount of resources, assistance and advice has been nothing short of mind-blowing.

In the last 6 months my turnover has grown by 184% with a net profit margin of 43%. I’ve calculated the ROI for my first year as a member is well in excess of 15 times.

I no longer feel alone.

Signing up for the Accountants Growth Club has been a very shrewd investment, with the many 'small' wins now giving a whole greater than the sum of the parts. 

The big gain has been the complete re-engineering of my internal systems and workflows: changing one thing here got us back over 3.5 weeks production capacity.  The other big gain has been finding a niche and then targeting exactly how I want to go about attracting those types of clients.  For me in my local area this meant no more meaningless networking events.  Freeing up this time and generating more capacity was crucial for the next stage of growth in bringing in new clients and being able to offer the service we want.

Egia Financial

Since joining the Accountants' Growth Club, the support and guidance has led to a huge growth in my confidence.

This has helped me to commit to my niche and grow the business within this niche, from £20k to £55k per annum. The club is friendly, supportive and provides gentle, but firm, encouragement when you need it. The resources that sit behind the group mean that whatever issues your having with your business there is something or someone to help you solve it.

I love the fact that the Daily Power-Up calls are every morning. When I attend one it normally makes me feel really empowered and inspired. This is because you realise that most of the other members have the same problems but you also get good practical suggestions of how to solve these problems.
