Are you a Do-It-Yourself business owner?

Do it yourself, or Hire a specialist?


Most new entrepreneurs are the DIYDo it yourself type of person.    You know that you can do the administrative tasks so you figure it is better to do it yourself then to pay some one else to do it.

I would advise you from a business building perspective that it is always better for you to focus on your strengths and hire others to get the jobs done that you are not strong in doing, then you will be much more effective, and your business will grow in a healthy structure.

However, if you are at the stage where you do not want to pay a bookkeeper to do your administration.  Then we offer you an option.  For your benefit we offer you a DIY 0ption – to get trained and do it yourself.
