    032 - Stop Hiring The Wrong People

    032 - Stop Hiring The Wrong People

    This episode is a bit of a rant/what grinds my gears because I’m tired of seeing small business owners taken advantage of by so-called virtual bookkeepers.

    What kicked this up for me was seeing a post about rules for a group that didn’t want there to be “negativity” in the group surrounding calling out inexperienced bookkeepers.

    So in this episode, I run down why all of this bothers me, the ulterior motives of some group owners, why it’s hurtful to business owners and professionals...and what to do about it.

    I also invite you to join the notification list for a rare sale that’s coming up for Black Friday (you can join here:  thecommoncents.com/bootcamp)
