Don’t waste time on your weaknesses! Bookkeeping can free up your time

Skydiving over Rotorua, meeting an exciting new client, eating exotic foods in the Amazon rainforest, hiking in the Himalayan mountains, watching reruns of That 70s Show … I bet you’d rather be doing any one of these things than finishing up your business accounts.

As an entrepreneur, your strengths are your tenacity, your ability to see the big picture, and your passion for what you do. But you also have weaknesses, and one of them is procrastinating on tasks that you don’t really like doing.

Why add more jobs to your already overflowing plate? With Xero and the experienced team at Change by your side, you can say goodbye to the hassle of doing your bookkeeping forever.

Here are three key reasons why you should free up more of your own time and leave the bookkeeping to someone else.

1. Maths giving you a headache?

If you don’t have a natural head for figures, you could be spending hours puzzling over how to do your accounts, when an experienced bookkeeper could get it sorted in minutes. Think of what else you could be doing instead.

Put down the panadol, and call Change today. Your headache will be gone in an instant.

2. Time is money. How are you spending yours?

In business, your time is valuable, and you only have so much of it to go around. You should make sure you maximise the value of your time by delegating smaller tasks to other experts, so you can focus on high-value tasks like growing the company and bringing in new business.

3. Stay up-to-date with your business spending

If you’re a serial procrastinator when it comes to your accounts, you’re probably always playing catch-up with the finances. If you’re not staying current, then you won’t be able to see trends in your business that could have a huge impact on success.

Being able to catch trends early on enables you to correct mistakes before they become huge issues. It also gives you the flexibility and visibility you need to jump on opportunities as soon as they arise.

To an entrepreneur, visibility and the ability to pivot as quickly as possible will be your competitive advantage when going up against the corporate giants. You won’t get this if you’re months behind on your accounting.

It’s time to stop procrastinating and hand off your bookkeeping to the experts. I guarantee you won’t regret it.

At Change, our philosophy is “humans where you need them. Software for everything else.” We’ll give you a monthly update on the facts and show you want to do to improve your financial health. We give you step-by-step answers to your financial questions, and we provide you with that year-round visibility that’s so key to entrepreneurial success. Go on, come talk to the team at Change today.
