Has This Happened To You?
Your Construction Company was a bit disorganized and there were piles of paper on the dashboard of your truck, behind the seat, on the passenger seat, on the floor, in every pocket of you coat, shirt, pants, inside your lunch box and piled high on your desk or kitchen table?
You bought QuickBooks thinking it would solve all your paperwork issues and your contractor bookkeeping issues? Instead you found yourself in a bigger mess and deeper hole than ever because QuickBooks is anything but Quick!
QuickBooks advertisements made it seem so simple that even a child could setup QuickBooks in less than an hour. So you thought I can do this; I can setup QuickBooks for my construction company and it will automatically sort all of the paperwork and do all of the accounting for your Contracting Company in 10 minutes a day or less.
QuickBooks sells software to contractors a little bit like Home Depot sells material to "Weekend Warrior Homeowners" who think they can save time and money by doing construction projects themselves.
Home Depot generates a ton of leads for contractors by putting on Home Depot Free Weekly Workshops & Home Improvement Workshops.
Can a homeowner "Learn To Paint Like A Professional", "Get The Skills To Install A Toilet", "Learn The Skills To Install A Backsplash" or "Install A Light Fixture" in a 90 minute class? Of course not!
Does Home Depot sell a lot of material and supplies with this brilliant marketing idea? Of course they do! What normally happens is the homeowner attends the workshop in the morning, buys the parts, goes home, tries installing them, runs into trouble and then calls you!
The same thing happens when contractors buy QuickBooks and try setting up QuickBooks using the Easy Step Interview. You waste a lot of time, money, blood, sweat and tears and end up with a mess and you live with it until the pain becomes unbearable, then you seek professional help.
They have driven your Contracting Company off the highway of success into the ditch of destruction, turned it upside down, poured gasoline on it, lighted it on fire, walked away, told everyone that you don't know how to run a business and you are left stranded on the side of the highway, eyes wide open, with tear stained cheeks watching in horror as everything you have worked for goes up in smoke!
