Accounting-For-Small-Business-SuccessGood question!

And there is no straightforward answer….it depends on you and your business.

Some women know immediately that No Way, José are they ever going to do their bookkeeping, oh no, they absolutely must get someone else to do it for them.

For others it’s not so clear cut….

Many women are more than competent at doing their bookkeeping.

But many have very real fears and phobias around their accounts.

I am glad to say that everyone who has had this fear or phobia, who has downloaded my ebook, has realised that their fears are unfounded and that yes! they can do their accounts and there is nothing to worry about.

Some women need a helping hand to get going and then they’re away.

But what if you know you are competent at doing your accounts but you don’t prioritise doing them, so it’s always a mad rush when there is some deadline or other to meet?  That makes the whole process far less enjoyable for sure.
In this situation I recommend you do one of two things:

a) You either commit to a set time every week, or at the outside, every month, when you sit down and do your bookkeeping.  If you’ve ever clutter cleared then you’ll know the immense satisfaction that follows.  It’s the same when you complete your bookkeeping. Be proactive instead of reactive.


b) You get someone else to do it.  Now this can be fraught with it’s own dramas.  You need someone you can trust and you need to have a budget to pay someone else to do it for you.  Only you can decide whether getting someone else to do your bookkeeping for you relieves the pain of doing it yourself.

There’s another scenario too….what if you have been competently doing your bookkeeping and your business is growing fast but all of a sudden your priorities naturally shift to serving your clients and growing your business?  In this scenario it becomes imperative to keep an eye on how your business is doing, financially, so that you can manage it’s growth without getting into cashflow problems.  You need to quickly take control and ensure your bookkeeping is still kept up to date.

So, do you need some help?
