I wish more entrepreneurs knew that it is hard to be successful in business without someone being accountable for the financial health of your business. Most bookkeepers don't do this. The average bookkeeper is not a Chief Finance Officer, they are record keepers. Some owners think because they have a bookkeeper, their finances are being monitored, but that's simply not the case most of the time.
Be sure to ask the relevant questions so that you'll know if your bookkeeper can give you what your business needs. Ask things like:
Tell he how you help your clients make money.
What would you consider to be an indicator of whether you're doing a good job as a bookkeeper?
What type of financial predictions will you be able to help me with?
