I love being a small business owner because I love not having a boss, and I love the products that I sell and having the ability to give jobs to my employees. What I do not like is being overwhelmed as the business grows, which in turn makes me more disorganized. I already have troubles with staying organized as it is, but the more my business prospers and expands, the tougher it is for me to keep up. Most recently, I knew I was going to have to find yet another accountant in Woolloongabba to help keep up with the demand.
The employee who does our bookkeeping now does a fantastic job. However, she's got a business degree, and has really wanted to land a position doing something else. She promised that she would stay for at least six months because she wanted to give me some time to find the right replacement for her. I immediately knew that despite her promise, if the right job came along, she would be silly not to take it and leave my business quickly. So, I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out the right solution that would be quick and painless.
After mulling it over for awhile, I did some Internet research to figure out my options. I ended up finding a company that can help me and there's no long wait period to get started with them. They have accountants that can take over the work immediately. This would let my current bookkeeping employee off the hook so that she can look for other work, and I would not have to worry that she would break her promise and leave me with no help at all. This sounded like a win/win situation to me, and it has been. My current employee has spent some time going over the financials with the new company I have contracted with, and the transition to working with them will be seamless.Discover A Lot More
