At Dollars and Sense, we help small businesses with their bookkeeping services every day. That’s what you’d expect, right? But sometimes there are intangibles that add value to your business that you might not expect – factors that help you in ways you didn’t even know existed.
What we love is being a partner to your business, and that can show up in lots of different ways. And it’s in that partnership that we can really add value to our business networks.
Take Brian, for instance. Brian was a painter who did a lot of work for insurance companies. His business was busy, and getting busier every week. It was great for Brian, but in one of our calls, he told us that he was struggling to cope with demand, and always felt behind.
“I’m exhausted,” he told us. “I start work at 7 am and I finish at 7 pm. And when I get home, I have to do all my paperwork and follow up on calls to book jobs.
“I’m flat out, I’m hiring staff to help me out, but it’s not enough.”
When we asked Brian what his biggest challenge was, he said it was answering calls and emails during the day while he was out on jobs and someone who was proficient in the booking platform that he used to schedule jobs.
Now, that’s not a service Dollars + Sense offers, but we do know a whole lot of people in business, and we knew just the person who could help Brian.
Two months later, Brian called us and said his new assistant was the single greatest thing that had ever happened to his business.
“I’ve got my weekends back!” he said. “Yes, I still work hard during the day, but I get home at 5 pm, and I’ve got a rundown in my email of what’s happening the next day and where everyone needs to show up – and I haven’t had to do it all myself!”
While we can’t be all things to everyone, we do value our relationship with our clients as their partner in business. We’re well connected, and we are here to help you to succeed in your business. And when there are challenges we can’t help with, we often know someone who can.
Whether it’s hiring someone to help sort out your bookings, finding an insurance broker, or an accountant to help you set up your business structure, we know how to connect you with all the help you need to succeed.
That’s what good business partners do.
