Why your startup needs more than a part-time/outsourced bookkeeper

As an early-stage start-up, whether funded or not, the founder’s prime objective is to be frugal and extend the runway as much as possible. In this pursuit founders end up ignoring accounting. Let us admit, modern accounting softwares like QuickBooks and Xero have come a long way in terms of ease of use and the user interface/experience. But truth be told, it still is not a founders’ job. While there are bunch of part-time/outsourced bookkeeping services around, most of them focus only on the bookkeeping and/or the tax accounting part.

Some of the things part-time/outsourced bookkeepers don’t provide –

  • Analyzing cashflows and maintaining forecasts
  • Creating & reviewing financial reports
  • Preparing & evaluating financial models & projections
  • Updating documents for potential investors
David S. Rose, author of The Startup Checklist: 25 Steps to a Scalable, High-Growth Business, says you should consult with an accountant as soon as you’re ready to “start acting like a real company.” He says you need accounting expertise “the second you take in your first investment dollar, hire your first employee, sign your first lease, or sell your first product.” The devil, as they say, is in the details.Think about building your financial team this way: “ABC” for accountant, bookkeeper, and chief financial officer. There’s a reason why the “A” comes first.

  • Being a digital marketer today is definitely not easy! Not only do you need high-quality content, you need a lot of it. But creating good content is incredibly time consuming. At least that is what I thought until I came across WordAi… In case you have never heard of WordAi, it is a lightning fast content rewriter that uses Artificial Intelligence to automatically create unique variations of any piece of content. The best part is, WordAi creates rewrites that both humans and Google love.  I know, that’s a bold claim and I was pretty skeptical myself. So I decided to test their claims with their free trial and can tell you honestly, I opted directly for the yearly subscription after that. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that WordAi is better than any other tool, service, or method on the market. I have been using WordAi to fill out my blogs and have already covered the cost of my yearly subscription. Its crazy but Im just scratching the surface of how far I can scale my SEO with WordAi! While I am using WordAi to scale my SEO efforts, you can also use WordAi to diversify your copy or even brainstorm to beat writers block! I could tell you about WordAi all day, but you really just need to try it for yourself.
