Capacity: 'the maximum amount that something can contain'
'the ability or power to do, experience or understand something'
I love my morning green tea or dark coffee from a press. I love to drink it on the go out of my favourite house mug, not a travel mug. So there I am in the truck with a full mug of hot tea with no lid. It's dumb - especially because I like a clean truck. But I keep doing it, foolishly believing that all roads will be smooth today. Maybe I'm an optimist.
Everyone has their own capacity mentally, physically, financially, creatively. We have limits. There are only so many things we can pay attention to, only so many things we can accomplish. And it's different for everyone...
The two best days to hire a bookkeeper are the day you open your business, and alternatively, today.
Tomorrow is the wrong day to hire a bookkeeper.
Tomorrow means it's not a priority and can be put off until it becomes critical. Which is definitely is the wrong day, because when it becomes critical it means it's costing you a lot of money. Money because you have to take time away from producing and serving customers and allocate it to organizing that you put off in the past. Money because you likely will have lost or missed claimable expenses. Money because you may face penalties and interest for late remittances for GST, taxes, WCB and maybe payroll remittances. Money because you may not receive rebates and refunds you may be entitled to.
Two reasons you may be putting this off are because it requires a little work to get organized. But a bookkeeper can walk you through the process and help you with all that paper work stuff. A second reason may be because you feel it's too expensive - you just can't afford it. Let's analyze that one a bit closer...
WHY: WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER
