Hey there!


Connecting the Financial Dots

If you know me, you know I am a connector. I love introducing people to one another, especially when I see an opportunity for them to work together and collaborate. Being a cheerleader for my clients is one of my favorite parts of being a business owner!

Getting to know you personally while managing your bookkeeping is another form of connection. When I dive into your books, I look for patterns, and what I learn helps me help you grow your business. 

You know I love an example, so here's a quick one: One of my e-commerce clients wants to grow her business from part-time to full-time. 
Now typically, business owners who face this struggle think, "I have to sell more." I say, "Look at what you're spending."

By looking at her chart of accounts, I saw her shipping costs were very high. Why? Because she was purchasing them in small batches on amazon instead of seeking out wholesale pricing.  

After a little bit of online research, I found a wholesaler that provided the same quality, fun-styled packaging her clients loved (Bonus! No sacrificing her brand!). By applying an additional Rakuten discount, we cut shipping costs substantially!

Multiply that savings each month, and my client is one step closer to achieving her goal of taking her business to full-time status!

Connecting with clients, and connecting the financial dots is what we're all about. I'd love to connect more with you.

Let me know how you like to connect with other business owners. And I'd love if you'd follow me on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, or Twitter (or all of them!) for more insights and ideas!


Happy October!

Tip Number 7: Keep Electronic Records.

True confession: Not only am I a QuickBooks nerd; I love my scanner.

Now I know that many people love their paper and love their shoeboxes full of paper receipts and records. I know this because many of you are my clients.

But me? I believe shoeboxes are for shoes, and records belong...

Dubsado

Ok, so this isn't one of my favorite things yet... But I have a feeling that it's about to be!

As you know, I'm a sucker for anything technology-related that will make life easier for my clients and for myself! SQUIRREL!

I was in need of making the new client onboarding process easier. My process includes: HelloSign, Trello, 1Password, Dropbox, QuickBooks, Google Forms, Slack, and some deep breathing.

After tons of research, YouTube videos, and Facebook polls, I decided on Dubsado. It's supposed to make the whole process seamless, easy, and majorly automated.

I bit the bullet and decided to hire a specialist to set it all up for me. Stay tuned!
