While owning your own business should have its challenges it should not be a constant grind on your mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Between a never-ending list of obligations and becoming more and more isolated it’s not surprising that there is a trending increase in reported stress levels and a decline in mental health for business owners in Brisbane and across Australia.
At Alexilum Bookkeeping we have a focus on supporting business owners like yourself with a goal to improve your mental wellbeing through Bookkeeping to Free Your Mind.
It may seem unusual for a bookkeeper to even be talking about mental health instead of accounting. There is however a direct link between stress levels and not having the right information to make decisions from.
One client has suggested we could reduce their stress levels by adding a couple of zeros to their bank balance on their reports. While we all wish it was that simple quality bookkeeping and accounting should give you a clear understanding about your business. Good information tells it how it is, and while it may not be what you want to see it tells you exactly where you are so you can take that first step to getting your business back on the right path.
“Even if you know where you need to go, I’m sure we can all agree that it’s more stressful to be lost in the woods than to know where you are to begin with.”
We believe that when a bookkeeper supports their clients through well structured and consistent information business owners will be well on their way to managing their businesses with confidence and resolve.
