EP33: Bookkeeping for Business Owners: Quickbooks vs. Bench Accounting

You are not obligated to work 24/7 in your business, which is why I’m a huge advocate for outsourcing the things that waste your time and can easily be automated.

In this week’s episode I dive into bookkeeping because it is a necessary part of running a business, whether you like it or not.

Early on in my business, I knew that something I needed to outsource pretty much immediately was bookkeeping.

There are many reasons why you would want to outsource bookkeeping, either because it’s time consuming or you just aren’t number savvy.

Either way, this episode is definitely for you!
