When you actually do it, it’s a beautiful thing.
I’ve had a bookkeeper in my office the past two days straight. Full days. She’s caught me up on years (no, really) of invoices not sent, out-of-date accounts, and overall chaos in my administrative world. She costs real money, but we’re also billing real money. She also brings something else: peace of mind of getting something done that I’ve been annoyed with for, well, years. How much is that worth?
So what’s the holdup? Why didn’t I do this years ago? Dunno. Why don’t you do half the things on your to do list? Dunno. If I knew, I’d probably have done them. I’m going to chalk this up as a victory and keep the ball rolling, get fully caught up and even better, have better systems in place for a more automated future. Oh, by the way, she’s been setting that up, too.
