How to Eliminate Stress with BookkeepingBrian Jang ON December 28, 2020
Most of us could stand to reduce the amount of stress in our lives, especially after the year that 2020 has been. Eliminating stress in our business and personal lives is possible, allowing for more enjoyable work and home experiences. Here are some ways that bookkeeping can lift the weight of stress from your shoulders:
More Family Time
When you find yourself being late for family functions, or even missing them altogether, and you can’t find time to spend with friends anymore, you need to make some changes. What is the point of working hard if you don’t get to enjoy the benefits of it by being with family and friends? By turning your bookkeeping over to a professional, you will be surprised at how much more time you suddenly have. Your family is counting on you to be there for them in more ways than just the financial. Free up valuable family time by turning to a bookkeeper and start enjoying life more.
De-stress by Knowing That Your Finances are in Good Hands
Not everyone is great at accounting and many more simply don’t enjoy it. In either case, handling your business’s finances can be stressful, as can worrying about taxes for the CRA and the possibility of being audited. That stress can be eliminated by having a professional handle your taxes and bookkeeping. Knowing that your taxes are being done professionally and properly can give you peace of mind and let you focus on other things.
Be More Efficient at Work
Handling your own bookkeeping takes up valuable time at worktime that you could be spending on other important tasks such as sales, marketing, networking, and operations. What was it that sparked your passion and drove you to start your business? There’s a good chance it wasn’t bookkeeping, so why not let a professional handle your books and put your energy back into the things you love.
Have a Better Work/ Home Balance
We all need someone to talk to at times and for many of us, that will be a partner or other family member. But when you have concerns about your finances, that can be stressful to bring home. Your bookkeeper is someone you can bring your questions and worries to in order to receive advice. Let the experts help you with your financial worries so that your time at home can be spent thinking and talking about other things that are more important to your family. Leave work at work.
The Advice You Need When You Need It
Building upon our previous point, your bookkeeper has the information and financial advice you need. They are familiar with your financial situation, giving them the insight they need to advise you on ways you can improve over the short- and long-term.
Owning a small business comes with stress. Sometimes that can be a good thing when it spurs you to act and get things done, but too much stress for too long is not healthy. Having a professional bookkeeper in your corner can alleviate a great deal of stress by handling your finances and giving you the ability to focus on other things that demand your attention, whether they be other work concerns, or family time.
