Removing stress by hiring a bookkeeper

We’ve talked about guidelines on how to choose a bookkeeper, but perhaps you are still not convinced
you really need one. Let’s review your situation.

Not that long ago, starting a business and fulfilling your passion was your dream.

You’ve taken that step—you’ve created your own business. It’s beginning to take off and you’re looking
to expand. There’s a lot on your plate—you’re testing the market, looking for a new location, meeting
with potential customers, interviewing, training and hiring new employees, setting up the office, and
purchasing inventory, among many other tasks.

The business is starting to make a profit; the day-to-day running of it keeps you busy full-time. Tracking
inventory records, accounts payable, accounts receivable and other transactions needs to be done.

Instead of having that extra time to play with your kids, spend time with your partner or pursue personal
interests, you are now swamped with receipts and records at nights and on weekends. You can’t sleep
soundly because you are worried about inventory, cash flow and the myriad of other items a business
owner needs to stay on top of. Financial record keeping just keeps getting put on the back burner.

As an entrepreneur, you need devote your energy to growing and running your business. You need some
personal time; everyone does. It’s also critical to stay on top of your finances. How do you achieve all of
that?

The best way to accomplish that is by hiring a bookkeeper, freeing you up to manage the running and
growing of your business. You can reduce your workload and stress, focus on things you are good at—
the reason you started the business in the first place--and have a bookkeeper handle the tracking and
recording of your finances.

Taking this step will allow you to breathe easier. Simplify your life—hire a bookkeeper. If you need to find one check out the North American Bookkeeper Directory and if you are a bookkeeper get listed for Free.

Re: Bookkeeping Basics for the New Entrepreneur and the 5 Mistakes You Need To Avoid
Great blog post! I can agree with everything mentioned here. Every business, regardless of size, needs some kind of bookkeeping system, whether it's manual or digital. In addition, every bookkeeper needs to be trained by a certified bookkeeping trainer. Bookkeeping training is really important because of the skills and experience it provides to all the bookkeeping students. In turn, this minimizes the risk for all the mistakes mentioned in your blog and ensures smooth-sailing. I look forward to reading more from you.
