Hello, lovely empire builder! I’m coming to you today with the 5 things that go into your meeting with a strategic bookkeeper. You see a bookkeeper can be more than just a person simply delivering you financial statements. When I work with clients, I love to include the going over specific needs but overall explain the income statement, balance sheet, statement of cash flows, budget, and cash flow management.
So you’ve started your business or on the beginning steps of starting your blog. Now what?! You ask yourself. You look to your left and right. All the other ladypreneurs in their chapter 5-20 are killing it in your industry. You get succumbed by imposter syndrome and analysis paralysis and remain stagnant. Simply because you don’t have the slightest idea on what to do first.
You go into groups and email people you idol: How you should monetize your blog? What you should be investing in first? I want to give you some super easy tips on how you can better handle the money in your business. Ease up those tensions a bit.
Newbie entrepreneurs seem to have it rough. You’re in the beginning of a new chapter in your life. You’ve birthed a beautiful baby business. It keeps you up at night. You think about it constantly and you always want to show people how cute it is.
You begin to realize that your baby costs so much but at times, you have trouble speaking up for it. Demanding that your business be is taken more seriously. Creating a routine to make it easier to earn money and help it grow.
So you’ve been in business for a few months and finally locked down your first set of paying clients.
The inquiries are coming in. Your excited, but desperately attempting to manage more than one client at a time. Your worst fears are not getting paid AND not receiving the rocking testimonial you deserve. Oh, and lets not forget the dreadful complaints of a client’s experience in your favorite Facebook group!
As a first-time entrepreneur myself, I’ve made mistakes in not having a streamlined experience. I was all over the place! When I focused my business on bookkeeping only, it meant I had to get creative.
As I write this post, I realize that I’m about one month out from my one year anniversary of creating my LLC. I never thought in a million years, I’d be creating a business. Especially one that is solely online! Through this year I have grown a layer of skin. I began to learn how to not take everything so personal. Stop taking everything so serious when it comes to people being interested in my service.
I started out doing just about everything that I was good at. From being enthusiastic about accounting, admin assistance, and graphic design. I liked all of them but I wasn’t totally in love with them. Then after each failure, I figured that I was spreading myself too thin. I was just simply doing too much.
