Accounting Apps Podcast | Accounting Technology | formerly Cloud Stories


“Cloud Stories is the world’s coolest accounting podcast” A guy on the Internet told me this once, and I choose to believe him!

The Cloud Stories podcast explores how business solutions integrate with online accounting software (Xero, MYOB and or QBO), and can, in turn, automate processes and improve productivity and profitability. By sharing Cloud Stories from the community listeners gain insights into how small businesses and advisory services can thrive in a brave new world of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robots.

Over the years, Heather Smith has interviewed Accountants • Bookkeepers • Business Consultants • Cloud Advisors • Cloud Integrators • Developers • Small Business Owners • and Solution Providers • who have generously shared their own Cloud Story on the popular podcast.

Life as a serial entrepreneur who's founded or co-founded multiple companies, including 7Syntax, SimpleTax, Pomar and Pixie.

  • Exiting a company you've built.
  • The journey to starting Practice Management solution Pixie.
  • Why is it is important not to get stuck on perfect?
  • What firms do to adapt to new systems successfully?
  • The importance of believing in yourself and joining peer groups - like the GoProposal group.
  • What advice do you have for your younger self about using your time, relationships, and opportunities to prepare for the career you have?
  • Ideas on how governments and policymakers can support the digitalization of small businesses: influence don't impose.

  • The score takes care of itself: a management book about Bill Walsh, perhaps the most successful coach of American football
