How to Know When It’s Time to Outsource

by | Jan 17, 2023 | Outsourcing, Process | 0 comments

You’ve been doing your own interior design business’s bookkeeping for a long time, but you also have a lot of other things on your mind. It’s a headache to continue juggling your finances when you could put that time and energy into other areas where your business needs your skilled attention. 

You may know a lot of other business owners who have an internal interior design bookkeeper. These bookkeepers are often part-time, with relatively low pay. The truth is that you’ll be hard-pressed to find a local, part-time bookkeeper who will provide the same quality of work as an outsourced bookkeeper. 

When you find an outsourced bookkeeping partner, you should be able to receive top-notch quality work and more flexibility to fit your budget. 

Here are a few more ways to determine whether it’s finally time to outsource your bookkeeping: 

Numbers occupy your time at work

Have you ever had an urgent to-do list, but the first task on the list takes up every second of your day? That feeling is horrible. And you’ve probably faced it a lot if you’re an interior designer trying to also be a bookkeeper. You are great at what you do, but that doesn’t mean you have to be great at everything else. Freeing up your own time is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself as a business owner, and bookkeeping is a great place to start. 

Your mind is spinning in circles

If you constantly feel like 1 million numbers are spinning around in your head, and you don’t know what to do with them, that’s a good sign that doing your own bookkeeping isn’t working out. You need mental space and clarity to do your job well, not to try to remember whether you used your interior design accounting software correctly!

You want to protect against errors

Did you know that key bookkeeping errors could cost you more money than paying a great interior design bookkeeper? Your company’s finances aren’t something to play around with. Treat your money with care by putting it in the hands of experts. 

Your business is growing

Two things will happen as your business grows.

  1. You will take on more high-level responsibility and decision-making.
  2. You’ll become responsible for more and more money.

There couldn’t be a more perfect time than now to step into the next phase of your company’s success, having peace of mind that your finances are fully taken care of.

If any of these points resonate with you, you know what to do. Start thinking about outsourcing! It can be overwhelming to know where and how to start, and AccountSolve would love to help. Schedule a call today to talk through what the best course of action might be for you.

Lori Petersen has seen the frustration and loss that business owners experience when they don’t have command of their finances. Growing up, she watched her father work incredibly hard as a contractor. He’d come home late, eat the dinner kept warm in the oven, and do it all over again the next day. But it all came crashing down when he had to close the business and Lori’s family applied for food stamps. The business had failed and all of his hard work was for nothing. 

Today, Lori views every one of her clients as an opportunity to make this right. She firmly believes no one should work as hard as her dad did and not have a profitable business. No family should suffer because business finances were poorly managed. 

Lori has helped hundreds of business owners make sense of their finances, implement proven money management systems and create unimagined profitability for their business. She ensures they experience the return they deserve for their hard labor.
