Why You Should

Outsource Your Bookkeeping

Giving you more time and money

Sometimes it just makes sense to hire a pro.

Most people aren’t equipped to work on their own car or HVAC system, cut their own hair, or do their own kitchen remodel.

How many customers or clients have you seen in this situation:

In an effort to save money, they try the DIY route of fixing a problem themselves.  Then, when they realize they can’t do it and they call you, it costs more because they messed more stuff up.  If they had called you first, it would’ve been easier for you to fix which would’ve meant a cheaper bill for them.

Hiring a bookkeeper is the same concept.

Let’s compare.

If you do your own bookkeeping and payroll:

  • If you spend 1 hour per day doing your books, that’s 5 hours per week.
  • If your normal hourly charge is $100, you are spending $2,000 per month doing your own bookkeeping.
  • That $2,000 per month isn’t tax deductible.
  • You lose 20 hours per month that you could be using to work, spend time with family and friends, or just get some much needed rest.

On top of all that:

  • You aren’t certain you’re even doing the books right and you could be making a mess of things.
  • If it’s done wrong, you’re looking at a lot more money to get the account fixed and, therefore, it has saved you no money and has costed you a lot.
  • If your numbers are right, your taxes are being filed with bad numbers, which could cost you loads of extra taxes.
  • And, in the event of an IRS audit, there could be a lot more money owed because of inaccurate books.

On the other hand, if you outsource your bookkeeping and payroll:

  • The bookkeeper will get the tasks done in less time.
  • It will cost less because of their efficiency.
  • Your bookkeeping fees are tax deductible.
  • You gain back 20 hours per month to do what you want to do.
  • The bookkeeping will be done right.

It just makes cents (and dollars) to outsource your bookkeeping.

I'm a small business too

When you outsource your bookkeeping to me, you are doing business with a small business owner, just like you.  A real person.  A mom.  A wife.  A daughter, sister, and friend.

I know the pains and the joys of entrepreneurship.

We have so much depending on us.  Family, employees, community.  We are the heart and soul of America.

Sometimes it’s hard to get past that first word though:  Small.  Sometimes we worry we are too small to be considered important. Too small to be taken serious.  Too small to be worth the time of others.

There is no such thing here.

I know that your business is your baby.  You’ve invested so much time and energy into it and all you want is to see it thrive and grow.

Trusting someone else with aspects of your business is hard.  Will someone else take care of it like you?  Will it be taken advantage of or swept under the rug?

The fact that my business is a small business too means I get it.  I know where you’re at and what you’re going through.  That’s why I want to work with you.  Because I understand and I want to help.

Next Steps

If you have decided that it’s time for you to hand over the administrative reigns in part or in whole, here’s what you need to know.

The very next step is to set up virtual meeting with me.

This meeting will take about thirty minutes.  During this meeting, I’ll ask questions to get a better understanding of what’s going on in your business and what services will help you the most.

This meeting will also allow us to see if we might be a good fit for working together.  No one wants to work with a person who they aren’t compatible with.  So I don’t assume that you will like me or want to work with me.  We need to have an initial meeting to decide that.

Click the blue “Contact me” button at the end of this section or click “Contact” in the menu at the top of this page for additional methods of contacting me or to schedule yourself on my calendar.  You can email, call, or text me.  Whichever works best for you.  We’ll schedule a time to have a virtual coffee and chat.

Meetings are held online through a video call.  I prefer video calls because they allow us to be more face-to-face than a phone call.

Before our scheduled meeting, you will receive an email with a link that you will click to join the call..

I may have additional questions before our call.  If  you receive questions, please submit your answers at least 3 business days before the call is scheduled so that I have time to review the questions ahead of our meeting.

I truly look forward to meeting with you soon.
