Running your own business can be incredibly stressful and time consuming. You feel like you have to be an expert in all areas and manage everything right down to the tiniest. But that will only make you more ineffective as your priority should be building your business and providing a good service to your clients, whatever that may be. There are some key business functions that you can outsource to other professionals that will free up your time and give you piece of mind that these companies will probably be more reactive than you can be should any issues arise. Here is a list of possible areas you can outsource.

This is where a bookkeeper is invaluable as they can take all of that stress away.
