I am reasonably financially savvy, but I am not a bookkeeper. The simple things like making sure the payroll is out on time every month, making sure that AP and AR are being held properly. These are things that take a lot of time, especially if you are not specialized in it. I was really happy to start working with Enkel to say, here’s a portion of my job which is everything, that I don’t need to spent 10-15 hours a month worrying about. I can hand it off to somebody else, so I can focus on building my business. ”
