You have all these questions:

  • I'm completely overwhelmed - I'm growing so fast and I'm not sure what to scale first
  • I know I'm supposed to "manage" my cash flow, but what the f*ck does that mean?
  • I feel like I'm ready to grow, but what's the best way to go about doing that? 
  • Why the hell is Quickbooks so freaking impossible to use? Shouldn't there be an easier way?
  • I want to add more revenue streams - which ones should I target first? 
  • Do I really need a bookkeeper, or can I handle this on my own?
  • Is it time to hire? And should I hire employees or use contractors?
  • How profitable am I, really? 

And no one to help answer them


You need a support system - and it doesn't exist... yet

Running a business can be lonely and when your business is growing quickly, it can be especially overwhelming - all those balls in the air and you're the only one juggling. You know you need help, but you really don't know who to ask. 

You go to talk to your accountant, hoping you'll get all your answers, but they hand you your tax return and their surprisingly large hourly bill, mumble something about ratios, and you're out the door. 

You talk to your bookkeeper, hoping they'll be able to give you the answers you need, but they just want to enter your expenses, reconcile your bank account and get the heck out of there. 

You try a business coach - but they don't really understand the operational part of your business and when you start talking about your profitability, their eyes glaze over.

All the parts of your business should connect - and they probably don't

  • What software you choose to manage your communication with your team can affect how efficiently you can work, especially if you're operating a remote business.
  • What project management software you pick can end up influencing whether or not your clients pay you on time. 
  • Your choice of bookkeeping or accounting software can actually impact whether or not you have good data on hand to make decisions when you need it. 
  • Your onboarding process can affect your retention of both employees and clients. 

Problems in one area of your business - like struggling to get clients to pay you - are often be caused by the systems you have in place (or by not having any systems in the first place).

Without looking at your business as a complete package, you can fix a problem one place and it crops up somewhere else.  Selecting software in isolation, without thinking about how it will connect to the rest of your tools means inefficiency (like having to enter data in multiple systems) and lost profits.



Working for yourself doesn't have to mean going it alone

Accountants are only going to look at your finances, but not understand how your operations will affect your finances.

Software support is only going to help you try to figure out how to troubleshoot that specific software, not help you figure out if that's the best choice - or how it connects to all your other software. 

You need an expert who can look at your books AND your technology AND your operations and help you figure out how to tie it all together and use it to grow.
