One of the most frequently asked questions I receive from clients and on my Facebook group is, "Book keeping is so tedious and boring and it takes up valuable time that could be used for product sourcing and running my online business. How can I find a book keeper?" Many online sellers feel that bookkeeping is not an income producing task and their time should be spent on the income producing activities they are good at, not on bookkeeping. A truer statement was never spoken! This is where outsourcing can save you time, money, and energy. Outsource tasks that are not your specialty, use up valuable time, and use that extra time to focus on what you do best.
If this describes your situation, I have great news! A colleague (and part-time eBay seller) has started a virtual book keeping service that my be just what some of you are looking for. Melissa Wright-Baughman has just launched "My Money Girl." She offers services such as bookkeeping services, Quick Books set up, and Quick Books training and consulting. You can hire Melissa to take care of the job for you, or she can teach you how to maintain your records in Quick Books yourself.
Melissa has 15 years experience with Quick Books and bookkeeping in a wide variety of industries. She herself is an entrepreneur and has had several home businesses including selling on eBay. I have known Melissa professionally since 2005 and she was a tremendous help to me in getting my online business going. You can see my testimonial here on the My Money Girl website.
As a special for my readers, Melissa is offering free Quick Books set up or consulting on an existing set up when you sign up for any monthly or quarterly service for 1 year. That is a $99 value. Just tell her that Suzanne The eBay Coach sent you! Please note that fees are not posted on her site as every business is different and the number of transactions, accounts, and other factors will determine the amount of time needed to handle your unique business.
I can honestly say that outsourcing my bookkeeping and accounting 2 years ago was one of the best moves I ever made. I don't have to stress about bookkeeping, it is taken care of automatically, and I can focus on what I love doing that produces income.
