The bookkeepers's trap

There are three main facts facing all bookkeepers:

Fact #1: You're getting paid to record the past correctly.

Fact #2: You have a ton of competition.

Fact #3: Most bookkeeping software (like QuickBooks and Bench) are trying to automate your job away.

Your job is to record the past correctly. However, your client doesn't really care about the quality of their books as much as you think they should.

To them, you and your many competitors do the same thing.

What they do care about is understanding their numbers and getting guidance on how to have a successful business.

But there's two problems with this.

Problem #1: You're not getting paid to do that.

Problem #2: You're not sure, exactly, how to do that.

You're getting paid to do compliance work. This means that to make more money you have to take on a lot of low-paying and demanding clients.

And, because your income is tied directly to how much you work, you have to continuously put in long hours servicing your clients while, at the same time, trying to find new clients.

This is a recipe for burnout.

Plus, even if you wanted to provide a business advisory service you don't have a scalable and efficient way to do that.

Until now...

By joining the Association of Business Advisors, you'll have a way to offer an effective business advisory service as well as community of other professionals to lean on for support.

The One Clear Path

Most business advisors don't have a clear process for delivering an effective business advisory service.
