EP325: Karla Dembik - How To Build The Road Map To A Successful Bookkeeping Business

“I want to do this, but I don’t really know how to do it, so you talk to people who have been there before that can help you on the way.”
-Karla Dembik  

Pennies become dollars far faster than most of us realize. Businesses (on balance) don’t fail because of a dramatic catastrophe; they suffer death from a thousand cuts. We often agree to all kinds of service and business fees, because we don’t know any better. But there are people out there who can help reduce costs and increase revenue without increasing your prices.
