As business owners, we love it when what we offer makes someone’s life better. But what about those clients who just won’t change? Whether it’s work that doesn’t get used, clients who ghost us when things get real, or even expensive products that someone buys and then doesn’t use, we've all been there. This week, we explore the pain and frustration we feel when someone refuses to get value from what we’re trying to do for them.
We were asked recently at a networking event for advice on how to hire a bookkeeper. For business owners, getting support on their finances can be one of the hardest things they do. We’re notorious for leaving our bookkeeping to the last minute, and we tend to feel tons of shame around it. This week, we cover what makes a good bookkeeper, what makes a bad bookkeeper, and when and how to ask for help.
Networking and referral groups are not one-size-fits-all. The personality of the group, the industries represented, the types of businesses, and how inclusive a group is all factor into whether or not a group is a good fit for you. From a business perspective, it's not enough to have well-meaning people who would love to refer you, but never see your ideal client. From a personal perspective, it's important to be part of a group where you can connect authentically and get support. Listen as we explore what makes a group a good fit and share some of what we've learned the hard way.
