EP342: Kim Wolfe - How To Build Your Dream Bookkeeping Business

“That’s the beauty of this industry, you can be as big or as little as you want to be, it’s so scalable.” 
- Kim Wolfe  

This is the question that has paralyzed more than a few good people when it comes to wanting to start their own bookkeeping business. It can be difficult to trust ourselves, and not judge ourselves too harshly for previous failures.

Often, it is the expectation more than the outcome that hurts or makes us feel uncomfortable when things haven’t gone the way we hoped. What would happen if instead, you focused on being okay where you are and building a different reality out from more stable ground?

After a dramatic career shift, she leaned into her desire to help people fix their problems, first in bookkeeping and then for those trying to grow their businesses. Kim’s approach is process-focused, delegating tasks to free up time, skilfully navigate obstacles and creating successful teams.

If you are struggling to build the business you want because things aren’t going the way you thought they would, this episode is a great one to help you create a stable foundation from which to achieve your bookkeeping dreams.
