You work all day at whatever it is you are good at, but when do you find the time to record the business’s activity in the books and invoice your clients? If you don’t do it every day, it becomes difficult to remember what you bought, for what project, and why. When will you do it?
In the morning, you check your calendar, catch up on critical information, and coordinate your staff – no time for bookkeeping. Mid-day, you are in the thick of it, keeping your clients happy and developing processes that make your business more efficient, effective, and profitable – it doesn’t really fit here. Maybe at night when the day is done? Your bookkeeping can be a kind of daily summary of what happened, and if you take the time to analyze your numbers, it can be a good indicator of what is yet to come. The end of the day is really the best alternative, but that can leave you with bookkeeping burnout.
Face it; most entrepreneurs’ days don’t end until nighttime. By then, you are tired, and bookkeeping becomes what you have to do, not what you want to do. As a result, you do just enough to get by and don’t really spend time with your numbers. Let’s be honest: after a hard day’s work, the numbers start to blur together anyway…. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an expert team that managed your bookkeeping tasks for you?
They could ensure the work was done, only ask you about things they can’t decipher, and provide intuitive reports. Would that help you to dive into the numbers and use them to help you understand your performance cash flow and make informed decisions? Could your finances become a light that shines the way to success and enables you to see approaching pitfalls? You might even be empowered to think up new ways to get paid earlier or easier or reduce costs and inefficiencies – after all, you will have some more time on your hands since someone else is doing the grunt work. Someone smart – an accountant who is trained in bookkeeping and enjoys it (yes, those people exist).
