014. Hiding the Mess: Why Business Owners Are Hesitant to Hire Bookkeepers

podcast Dec 21, 2022

The number one biggest reason I see businesses putting off hiring a bookkeeper?

Hint: it’s not because they aren’t ready to hire one. In fact, they KNOW they need to hire one, and do it sooner rather than later.

But there’s one problem: Their books are a mess. Maybe they’ve been mixing personal expenses with business. Maybe they don’t use a great system. Maybe they simply don’t know what they’re doing.

Whatever the case, many business owners are simply embarrassed to have a bookkeeper get ahold of their books before they have the chance to “fix” them.

But here’s the thing: you’re not going to fix those books. And even if you do, you might “fix” them all wrong. Want to know how to make this transition easier on yourself and your future bookkeeper? I’ve got the answer for you right here.
