Right now, amid the economic upheaval of COVID, business owners should be focusing on streamlining their business. During times like these, bookkeeping and financial reporting probably take a backseat in favor of efforts to sustain and possibly grow the business.

Are worries about your accounting department looming over your head as you try to keep your business afloat? Now may be the time to take some weight off your back as you focus on the management tasks you do best and delegate the operational tasks at which you are less skilled.

Consider outsourcing!

For many people, the weekly work routine is quite different these days. Rather than driving to the office and settling in at their desk, they clock in at their kitchen table and interact with co-workers through cyberspace.

Do you find yourself wondering why things don't feel the same with your team interactions? Even as you work remotely, you can still maintain your company's corporate culture.
