    Are You Trying to Find a Bookkeeper for Your Contractor Company?

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Aug 19, 2016

    Construction Contractors Have Experienced The Worst Economic Times In The Past 100 Years And Now That You Are Getting Busy You Cannot Find A Decent Reliable Bookkeeper

    Four Things Contractors Are Saying About Bookkeepers:

    #1 I've been trying to hire a bookkeeper for my contracting company for a while and none of them are worth a darn!

    #2 I Tell Them "Your Job Is Make QuickBooks Give Me Reports I Need To Make Informed Business Decisions!"

    #3 I've hired four of them in the past few years and none of them have a clue about what I do as a contractor!

    #4 I am getting ready to hire bookkeeper number five, and I just can't take it anymore, and I am near meltdown!

    The Next Set Of Problems Is Related To Cash Flow

    Four Things Contractors Are Saying About Cash Flow:

    #1 Now I am way behind on Invoicing for the work we have done, and I am having a hard time collecting the money.

    #2 I want to grow my company, do the stuff I am good at and see the money come rolling into my bank account.

    #3 I want a few days off to spend with friends and  family without having to constantly think about the business! 

    #4 Is there any hope for a brighter future and will I be part of the American Dream, is that too much to ask?

    "If You Know The Answers The Questions Will Not Bother You" In school when you sat for an exam or a test, and you knew the material forward, and backward it was fast and easy. The exams and tests for the classes you struggled with were the opposite. Having a Business Process Management Plan provided you with the answers to the questions about how to run your business because it is something you developed. Not something someone else did and handed to you.
