Why would anybody do this, and secondly, how do they do it?
The answer to the first question is simple: They run because they love it and when you love what you’re doing, you keep at it. Passion is a great starting place but it is their methodology and studied approach that brings them success.
A runner’s body is like a machine, every component measured and recorded. Calories in, calories out, pounds up, pounds down, 8 hours of sleep, 8 glasses of water today, 8 minute mile. Everything is measured, recorded and utilized to maximize the potential for success, and the outcome of that potential is determined by how successfully they are investing in their bodies. Additionally, a healthy runner looks great, feels healthy and fit, and is rewarded with the acclaim of his/her friends.
Surprisingly enough, reasons for bookkeeping are similar to reasons for running. Swap the 26-mile finish line with financial success and the parallel is obvious. A bookkeeper treats your finances the way a runner treats his/her body: dollars invested, dollars expended, networking groups joined, meetings attended, 8 new clients a month. Every component of your business’ anatomy can be tracked, analyzed and methodically planned out to predict the potential for success. Don’t forget the lucrative tax returns either. Every expense you make has the potential to benefit you financially. On top of all of this, a healthy business presents well to prospective clients, it reflects well on you and instills a feeling of pride.
Hiring a bookkeeper lets your clients and prospective clients know that you are taking your business seriously, that you are defying the limits of economics and can’t wait to keep growing. Whether you need assistance or a free consultation please contact us.
