As a business owner or manager, we all look for inspiration, ways to self-improve or even basic advice. Many of us get that advice or inspiration in book form. Do you have a favorite go-to self-help book? Do you have one that really resonates with you and you revisit it or think about it regularly?
If you haven't yet found "the book," I strongly urge you to read “Who Moved My Cheese" by Spencer Johnson, M.D.
While the title is humorous and conjures up little mice running around in a maze looking for their cheese, it is actually a metaphor for humans who struggle with change and the ability to adapt, and the survival of the ones who are best able to adapt to that change.
At times, we all struggle with change. We like to do what we've always done, even if it is no longer working for us anymore. Why? Because we are in a routine and our brains LIKE routine! But as a business owner, we must adapt to our changing environment or we will not be successful.
We have to make a conscious effort to focus on our end goals and reevaluate how we are going to get there. If your goal is to sell xx of your product or to increase sales by xx% this year, how will you do it? More importantly, how will you make TIME to do it?
What if I told you that we can help you with that? By using our virtual bookkeeping service, we will save you hours of time each week (not to mention saving money) so that you can take that time and go after your cheese! It's time to adapt to our gains in technology and use it to benefit our businesses. You got this!

Many people become accustomed to doing things a certain way. This includes bookkeeping tasks. In the past, business owners expected their bookkeepers to be on site, in the office.

Bookkeeping is a task that can easily be completed virtually. You might wonder exactly how this can be done. With a bit of forethought and planning, we can accomplish what you never thought was possible!
