Why You Should Never Do Your Own Accounting

Recognizing when to hand over accounting to professionals is crucial in the early stages of your consulting startup. You can’t run any business without a solid #accounting foundation. Unless you specialize in accounting, don’t try to save money by doing your business accounting on your own. Even though professional accounting help comes with a little bit of a premium, realizing when to make the investment can not only save you money in the long run — it can also free up your skills and headspace to focus on growing your consulting startup.
