I hear all the time: “I hate numbers”, “I hate math”, “I hate accounting”. So, when businesses talk to me, they share the problem: they need to know their numbers but they dread the accounting process. I’ve had business owners come to me and say they were having sleepless nights wondering where their money went. Or, they want to get a loan and the bank wants financial information “now” and they are forced to create a better accounting system. Owners need accounting, but they don’t want it to be so painful. That’s where I come in. My goal is to get you information and decrease your dread.
Your call is returned
The buzz phrase today seems to be: “I am an accountant and I partner with you”. But accountants really are not your partners — because you have all the financial upside and downside. I do believe, however, as an experienced accountant, I can be an important part of your extended team. I have years of education and experience … and I’ve realized my other two qualities are important to small businesses: 1. I care and develop relationships with my clients 2. I return your call within a day.
Focus on the parts of your business you love
I’ve also had businesses come to me who have an accounting process. But many times, the process was stopped and started or was put on the back burner. Other times, accounting just took on a life of its own and became overwhelming. The problem seems to come down to: owners want to understand their numbers, but they really want to focus on the parts of the business they love. I work to keep you on top of your numbers yet free you up to work on your business.
