Rich People Have Bookkeepers. Is This the Year You Start Outsourcing Your Books?

tulum vibe 9.jpg

Last year, in early 2018, I decided to finally hire a bookkeeper. Even though I was afraid of another additional monthly expense on top of what it cost to sustain and run my business, I knew it was TIME.

I knew that in order for me to grow as a business owner and entrepreneur that I needed to stay in my zone of genius and be the Creatrix. I needed to be focused on creating products and services aka making the money, while someone did the tracking for me.

Because let’s just be honest here: I was NOT staying on top of the bookkeeping.

It looked like this: every two-three months or so I’d go into quickbooks and pretend I knew what the hell I was doing. I’d even bring a bar of chocolate and light a candle to try and make it feel good, like they all told me I should. Chocolate or not, it was still painful and unenjoyable and it was taking me away from what I really needed to be focused on.

In one of his audio books, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki tells his readers that even when he was 400k + in debt, his ‘Rich Dad’ (his best friend’s father and one of his  mentors) told him to go out and hire a bookkeeper.

Why? Why, in the midst of his then painful financial reality would he be advised to do this? His rich dad simply said, “Rich people have bookkeepers.”

You know, I have zero idea how I found Bench Accounting, but I have to say: I LOVE their services. I LOVE just checking in with my monthly reports, and I love how easy they make everything. Their communication is excellent, and their system is SO easy to work with.

I no longer have to worry about getting it wrong, falling behind, or missing something important. I can focus on the business growth activities that feel natural, normal, and organic to me while knowing that it’s all being handled.

This year, they (Bench Accounting) handed me my year-end reports, with all the financial data I need, and all I have to do now is bring it over to my CPA. I actually need a new CPA right this moment so don’t think I’m 100% stress free, but I am in a FAR better position than I was last year.

Is this the year that you finally hire a bookkeeper for your side hustle, start-up, or heart-led business? Check out Bench here: http://refer.bench.co/Jillian For real.

Full disclosure: the links provided in this blog post are my personal referral links. For each person I refer to Bench, I make cash-gains AND get a sweet discount on my Bench payment. How fun?

The Problem is When Everybody in the Room Pitches a Tent and Decides to Stay

jillian-anderson-new-story-now-energy-coaching-workshop

Ever walk into a room where people are DEEPLY bonding over their conditions/ailments/pains?

The conversation bounces around the room as everyone talks about their ailments and struggles — while you (a fairly self-aware person) ask yourself: what IS going on here? Does anyone here actually want different results? Do they want to know that it CAN change? 

Even if it’s UNSAID, the vibe is like this: life is not working for me. Because of X, I can’t do/be/have Y. 

I’ve been in plenty of those rooms, and I’ve learned to either:

a) compassionately and intuitively challenge the pain-party
b) leave the room

Side thought: I’m NOT victim shaming. It’s important that those who’re struggling have a safe place to relate, share their story, and process emotions without judgement/criticism/being blamed for the challenging things that have occurred in their lives… 

The problem is NOT needing to work through pain/challenges/struggles. We all need that. 

THE PROBLEM IS WHEN EVERYBODY IN THE ROOM PITCHES A TENT AND DECIDES TO STAY. 

I see and feel this happening with other creatives and entrepreneurs — my PAST self included. 

It looks/sounds like bonding over the sh*t they don’t like in the industry: 

I don’t like how she markets. 

I don’t like how she sells.

She’s ALWAYS selling. 

Her prices are inflated.

Who would pay that?

Her emails are too frequent.

Her blah, blah, blah.

Look at what she’s wearing.

An animal died for that purse. 

She’s launching AGAIN.

What I would like to ask all of the people saying (OR EVEN THINKING) any of the above, is this: 

🔹IS YOUR BUSINESS WORKING FOR YOU? 
🔹DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN HAVE DIFFERENT RESULTS? 
🔹DO YOU KNOW THAT IT CAN CHANGE — THAT YOU CAN GROW?
🔹ARE YOU AWARE THAT YOU’RE SEPARATING YOURSELF FROM THE RESULTS YOU WANT?
🔹WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE ALL THAT YOU ARE?
🔹WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO LET GO OF THE ILLUSION OF SAFETY SO THAT YOU CAN SOAR?

Seriously. Think about it. 

And if this is speaking to You, join me for my upcoming LIVE WORKSHOP: NEW STORY NOW. 

This workshop is going to anchor you into:

The version of you who is unapologetic and unstoppable. 
The version of you who takes up way more space. 
The version of you who is safe being seen. 
The version of you who is safe as she sells her offerings/services and grows her business/body of work with a TON more momentum, because she’s not… 

Second guessing her every move. 

Isn’t it about time to start trusting yourself more?

To choose the Soul nudges instead of the fear shackles? 

For real: LET’S DO THIS TOGETHER.
