A couple of weeks ago I went to the optician for a regular eye check, just to make sure all was OK as you do. I came away from the opticians with a new pair of glasses… not really what I wanted, and to be honest I was a bit scared to wear them out in public, you see I am quite Self conscious and I certainly wasn’t ready to put on my glasses and head out into public just yet, so I wore them around the house as needed. My husband soon got fed up of me being so silly, and insisted that we head out for the day, and yes I had to take my glasses with us and wear them – I was not overly amused but went along with it. I put them on as we drove out of the town into the countryside and suddenly things became clear. Those green fuzzy balls that I always see on the hillside, are actually trees, I could see more definition in everything I looked at… my vision became clear and crisp and i knew exactly what it was I was looking at.
Bookkeeping is the same – you need clarity and a clear vision for where you want your company to go and grow. Managed accounts, and a carefully planned Bookkeeping operation where you know exactly how & what financial detail you want to track for your company, will help you to measure the success or perhaps unfortunately the failure of your business efforts – either way its good to understand and see clearly the path you are taking within your organisation. We helped one of our first ever clients get the vision they required, and with this knowledge and information he was able to gain control of his company, he also had the information he needed on whether he was running at a profit or a loss, and was able to buy out one of his competitors. Last year he sold his company for a healthy profit, he introduced us to the buyers and showed them what we had done for him, they were impressed and as a result have retained us to continue showing them the way forward. Here’s what Gerard had to say about Great Elm Bookkeepers!
So if you would like to be like Gerard Parsons and have a clear vision and path to follow, so you know where your business is and you are able to confidently plan for the future, then why not pick up those glasses and put them on, alternatively give us a call and see if Great Elm Bookkeepers can help you… We may not be able to, but imagine if we can!!
