Back to School Supply List vs Business Supply List

School Supply List vs Business Supply List

August is back to school time and for most parents that means the dreaded school supply list and shopping trip. They need pens, pencils, notebooks, tissues, crayons, markers, new backpack, new clothes and the list goes on and on. The one nice thing that helps in this process is the school provides a list of needs and it is broken down on how many of each item they need. Have you ever thought about creating a list like that for your business?

Now, we don’t mean a list of how many #2 pencils you need. We mean a list of your business’s needs. If you were to make a business supply list, we bet it would be long and probably overwhelming. Your business needs HR, accounting, marketing, sales, customer service, maybe even operations. You can’t do all of that on your own, you can’t be proficient in HR, accounting, marketing and operations. Not only are you not an expert on all of these topics, but who has all of the time for that?! You are only one person. You can’t expect yourself to be in too many places at once. That is why it is important to do your own “shopping”. Outsourcing may be the right solution for your business. Why outsource? Outsourcing is a great solution because it allows you to get the information and services you need while knowing you are having a professional do that job. Not only that, but by the time you factor in payroll, benefits and other costs you will probably actually be saving money in the long term!

I'm an experienced finance professional with more than 20 years of experience. I've held several Controller positions throughout my career, most notably with an internationally respected commercial real estate investment, management, and brokerage firm. In this role, I was responsible for all aspects of accounting across the company's many operational divisions - including internet services, real estate development, property management, and brokerage services. As our company operated in multiple countries and currencies, it was essential to me that all financial reports were accurate and compliant.
