Key Highlights

[00:01 – 10:47] How COVID-19 Impacted the Workforce Over the Years

  • The ups and downs of COVID-19 may have been unpredictable, but clients surely have stronger 2021s compared to 2020s.
  • Moving forward, people can have better years but the rising inflation cost and work shortage stir up fear and uncertainties.
  • Learning remote work is essential especially in the current status moving forward.
  • With how the world is changing in the last two years, the impact on the workforce is notably negative on a larger scale. However, because of the inflation, business owners need to be wary about the wage increase.

[10:48 – 22:21] A Myriad of Aspects to Consider in the Aims of GDP and Business Growth

  • In the lens of CPA firms, both small and big businesses are in for a challenge of workforce shortage.
  • To sustain the GDP growth, American policies must ease their immigration policies.
  • It is difficult to invest right now, given the current state of the government and its debt.
  • In the last 18 months, we’ve seen IPO performances go up at least a turn almost overnight. It is a combination of two things – the quality of the businesses that are now potentially hitting the market and a big run-up in the stock market.

[22:22 – 34:03] Essentials in Decision-Making and Systems Curation Processes

  • The family must be on the table when making big decisions as these can also change their lives.
  • A great practice to incorporate is to allow two or three years of making sure that there is a buttoned-down decision-making matrix within your company and that the systems and processes are well-documented.
  • When it comes to earnouts, the advice is to make sellers comfortable about not earning another dollar to refrain from being emotional.

[34:04 – 36:50] Closing Segment

  • Check out Aprio and Aprio Advisory Podcast to see actionable and insightful information about what’s happening within the marketplace.
