An Asset to Your Team - Why You Should Hire A Bookkeeper

Leijun Campbell - Wednesday, March 29, 2017



As a small business owner or solopreneur, you pride yourself on being able to handle a variety of tasks from sales to marketing to human resources. However, you occasionally find yourself in a situation that goes beyond your usual expertise such as financial management. Rather than try to push through and make some serious mistakes, consider hiring a bookkeeper who can work with you on a regular basis to make sure everything is in sync. Think of them as an asset to your team, a backup quarterback if you want to use a sports metaphor.

 

We'll give you some reasons below for bringing in a bookkeeper:

 

1. You can run your business and focus on the most crucial tasks - You have multiple customers and issues to deal with throughout the day. If you're being honest with yourself, sitting down to go over financial documents and more in-depth details at the end of every business day is nearly impossible. Even some of the best business owners and executives realize that delegation can be a lifesaver. Not only will hiring a bookkeeper save you time, they will also save you money.

 

2. Bookkeepers can be hired for specific industries - Are you a real estate or insurance agency? Do you own a restaurant or retail store? Bookkeepers understand most industries on a general level, but each one can focus on something much more specialized. Since they work for multiple clients in an industry, they often understand current trends that should be followed and obscure rules that need to be observed.

 

3. You can hire them on a contract basis or full-time - Though you need to be aware of your company's budget and resources, some of the best bookkeepers start as a contract worker and then can join the team to make your business even stronger. These contractors bring in crucial knowledge and analysis for cash balances and expenditures every week or month, allowing you to build a relationship and trust that you may not have even expected. Regardless, you will gain a better understanding of your company's financial management and be able to start planning for five years ahead rather than just the end of the month.

How to Exchange the Urgent for the Important

Leijun Campbell - Thursday, March 02, 2017

 


 

Earlier today, you walked into your job. Over the past few days, you’ve had to time to do a little bit of brainstorming on your next major project and are ready to finally get things started. You said good morning to your coworkers (or family if you work from home), sat down at your desk, fired up your computer and opened your email inbox.

 

You don't remember the last time you had seen so many red-flagged messages. "Emergency" after "emergency," you typed your fingers to the bone with an unrelenting ferocity as you sent requests for further information, emailed questions to people involved in the projects in jeopardy and set out researching and problem-solving the issues on your own. In between tasks, you attended meetings, some beneficial and some not so necessary. You continued until the 4 o’clock hour and breathe a sigh of relief when the last concern is resolved. You then realized you never started on the project that, until 8:30 a.m. that morning, was considered the most important item on your checklist. As much as our minds want to jump to solving the most urgent of problems, your productivity will suffer because you aren’t given full concentration to the projects and ideas that matter to you and your professional development.

 

With the inevitability of the urgent always looming, setting aside and blocking off time to work on the important is crucial. Campbell Business Services is here to help you make your professional ventures as effective as possible. For more information on how we can help YOU, email leijun@campbellbusinessservices.com!
