You may be a one man operation. You consider yourself to be a work from home mom. You are a small business operator through and through. This is great. But swallow your pride and be pragmatic for once in your life. Do not expect to be able to conduct all of your affairs smoothly without the assistance of others, particularly those that are more than qualified to do you a good service and help your business grow.
You may have been quite good at math at high school. You may have built up quite a good reputation for accuracy during all of your years as a hardworking office worker. You were the one that your supervisor turned to when the auditors arrived. And boy, did they smile. You made their work so much easier. They could not believe just how cooperative you were. And yet. Now that you are finally in business for yourself, believe it or not, you still can’t seem to get your books to balance. You always seem to be in arrears and you are continuously dealing with late or non-payments.
As small as it may seem now, your business needs an accountant. You do not need to contract him in on a fulltime basis. You can use him as needs be and pay him accordingly. Don’t you worry, he will be billing you alright. In order to run your little entrepreneurial adventure as smoothly as possible, you’re still going to need professional business it solutions. You will be surprised at just how much you will be saving for your business down the line and in more ways than one.
Just watch how much more easily you can get your work done on time.
