Office Gossip Part 1: The Build Up, aka Someone Save BOB™ & Give Him the Freedom to Change!

Jan 17, 2022

 


 

This week, I’ll be taking on a different approach and acting out the first scene in a three-act production with some of my most beloved characters.

Let’s begin:

The Players: BOB, BABs (BOB’s best friend/coworker), Ariel (BOB’s wife), and Katie (aka me, The Boss)

 


 

Scene One: BOB and his wife, Ariel, are together and talking. BOB is venting his frustrations, and his wife, Ariel, is a voice of reason. So enter Ariel...

Ariel: Hey, BOB, how was work? 

BOB: Uh, honestly, I'm just feeling so burnt out. 

Ariel: Really? When did you start feeling that way? 

BOB: I've been feeling it for months. I keep trying to just push it down and push through. But lately, I find myself tired, uninspired, stressed. I really love what I do and I know I'm good at it, but something just doesn't fit anymore, and I'm not really sure how to fix it. I've tried a lot of things, and I know I'm lucky to have this gig. Past versions of me...

Bookkeeping Solo: How to Build Confidence at Work & Branch Out on Your Own

Jan 10, 2022

 


 

I love making my living for myself; the freedom and flexibility it affords me is the ultimate benefit. It’s why apart from doing clients’ books, I also create and teach the programs I offer. Everyone who wants it should have a way to achieve what I have. 

One of the most common questions I get is whether or not people just starting out can use my program and jump right into working for themselves, or if they should work for someone else first. 

I’m sorry for this answer, but frankly, it depends.

 


 

Independence is Directly Proportional to Your Confidence

I’m not going to lie; working for someone else can really only benefit you, especially if you go for a company that is bigger or more complex than you would eventually like to be. That way, when you finally do decide to go it alone, your work will seem easier by comparison.

Also, you’ll have the confidence you need since you've done the work and more complex...

I’m excited for you to listen to this episode of Profits + Prosecco Podcast! It’s the most stressful time of the year! Taxes are barreling down upon us all, and if you’re terrified of delving into the past year’s financials you are far from alone. 

I’ve been there, and I know how petrifying it can be when you feel like your finances are out of control. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret…you got this. So:

*deep breath* 

That’s better. Now trust me when I say we are going to fix this, and we just might manage to get into some better financial habits going into 2022 while we’re at it.

 


 

Why Are You Avoiding Finances Like Trader Joe’s on a Saturday?

There you are. Unsure, doubting your worth as a business owner. But ironically, you’re impeding your own progress and potential. So stop operating from doubt, and instead try and take action from a place of self-trust....

The Art of Small Business Bookkeeping: How to Evolve, Grow, and Believe in the Work You Do with Kelly Wigington

Dec 27, 2021

 


 

I’m excited for you to listen to this episode of Profits + Prosecco Podcast! During this episode I was lucky enough to be joined by a very special guest & participant in my Become a Bookkeeper program, Kelly Wigington.

Kelly is the owner of Summer Dove Bookkeeping, wife of a hobby enthusiast, and Mama to three wild little boys. She lives in the mountains of East Tennessee where she and her family go on lots of adventures. She runs on coffee, Jesus, and sarcasm, and she strives to help everyone around her feel at peace. 

If you visit her Instagram, you’ll see Kelly has a prospering bookkeeping business of her own. Her path there was a bit winding which was fun to learn about. 

Not only that, but she learned some pretty incredible things from my Become a Bookkeeper series, so we touched on that experience as well.
