How to Automate Your Bookkeeping Business With The Latest Apps (Part 2)

with Lielette Calleja

Strap yourself in as Leilette takes you into Part 2 of her presentation in automating your bookkeeping business with add-ons.

Automating her business whilst learning the add-ons was challenging and testing, yet this has encouraged Leilette to persevere even more as the trade-off is time with her son and husband, family, friends and herself.

What makes this presentation a must to listen to apart from the add-ons is how Lielette speaks candidly how she employs her staff and the issues that arise in costing their hours whether they are on site or working from home.

Automating your business means you have more time to upscale your business. This enables you to get more work without needing to employ more staff and keeping it local and not worrying about outsourcing from overseas.

As Lielette points out Bookkeepers are not just bookkeepers anymore, “we are so much more”. Therefore, Lielette has positioned her business between a standard bookkeeper and the tax accountant. She says “automation makes you look bigger and more professional, and clients love that”.

Lielette is endeavouring to move quickly with her business as the space for bookkeepers is growing smaller. So, to position her business in the best place possible is to be automating it as much as possible to be ahead of the game whether you have a team or a one-man band.
