Whether we realize it or not, pain and pleasure drive most of our decisions in life.

For example, if you’re an entrepreneur, why did you start your own business? It’s likely you wanted to avoid the pain of an overbearing manager telling you what to do and wanted the pleasure of doing what you wanted, when you wanted.

But now that you own your own business, it’s likely there are still pain points that give you a bad feeling in the pit of your stomach.

Let’s take accounting. If you are still using old, out-dated systems, and trying to do everything yourself, you probably feel pain every time you even think about accounting, because let’s face it, accounting can be pretty overwhelming.

But what if you can hire a cloud accountant so that every time you think of accounting you feel happy because you know a suave professional is taking care of everything for you?

Here are 4 signs that you may need to hire a cloud accountant…

  1. You find it hard to focus

When you are in the early stages of running a small business with minimal staff, it’s likely you have a million things you need to focus on, from managing customers, to writing website copy to fixing leaks in the ceiling. It can be hard to know where to focus your energy because there are so many options available.

The cool thing about cloud accountants is that they can look at your financial information in real-time and tell you where you need to focus your time and money in the present and future. (With traditional accounting, once the financial information has been put together, it may be a few months after the transactions actually occurred making it too late to make efficient changes). This way you can come up with a strategy to propel your business forward instead of being in reactive mode, just trying to keep your company afloat.

  1. You dread invoicing customers

Invoicing can be a huge drag, but if you use cloud accounting software you can actually invoice a whole lot easier by using automated invoicing and keeping a record of who owes you what and when.

In fact, it’s so handy that cloud accounting actually ensures you get paid quicker and makes it less likely that you will forget to charge a client. This means more money for you!

  1. You waste a lot of time on accounting

If you are doing your accounting manually, it’s likely you are bottleneck for your business. Manually entering data can take up hours of your time and more importantly, those who manually enter data are more likely to make mistakes, costing your business money.

If you hire cloud accountants, they will help you hook your bank accounts and credit cards to your accounting software so that entries automatically feed into your accounting system saving you from having to manually enter data yourself. 

  1. You don’t feel free during tax season

You became an entrepreneur to get more freedom, but with old accounting systems you are stuck to your computer and office which is the hub of your accounting information.

If you hire a cloud accountant, they will hook you up with all sorts of fun cloud-based software and apps meaning you can access your information in real-time from anywhere with internet access, even the beach. Freedom at last.

We know what works in business, because we’ve been through the ups and downs of entrepreneurship ourselves, so you don’t have to.

We also know it can sometimes just take a few seconds to make a decision that can change the course of your life.

So why not make now the time you take control of your pain and pleasures in life and hire a cloud accountant?
