“A business is simply an idea to make other people’s lives better.” Sir Richard Branson
We all want an easier life, some are even lucky enough to have one but as a small business owner who is constantly on the go you too need an easier life – but how do you achieve this?
A golden rule is that you should focus on running your business, because this is what you enjoy most. There are lots of tasks in a business which are probably less enjoyable – dealing with regulation, dealing with tax and all the other unnecessary admin. But those tasks have to be dealt with because they won’t go away.
Small businesses usually enlist the support of another local business – such as an accountant. There are accountants out there who do what the title suggests “Make people’s lives easier” and that’s because they enjoy doing what they are doing. And that is the key for all your business support.
If you work with professionals who have fun like you running their business, then everything will be so much easier for you. So don’t just check out their track records or their qualifications, talk to them and you’ll get a good understanding of who they are and if they enjoy their work – it’s important to know if they will make your life easier.
I would of course like to suggest that you work with your local AIMS Accountant (then I again I am biased), but my above point really applies to everyone you work with.
