EP384: Paige Papaioannou - How To Build A Business That Works For You

“Having a community to support me, it just was instrumental. It's something you can't talk to your friends and family about. They just don’t get it.”
- Paige Papaioannou

Not everything is as easy as the internet makes it seem. But thanks to the internet, there is a wealth of information and possibilities for connection with people on a similar journey to you. By being in a community of like-minded people, you can learn from the mistakes of others and support one another.

Paige Papaioannou, owner of Books By Paige, is this episode’s featured guest. She has spent her career helping businesses thrive through her expert accounting and advisory services. In her conversation with Michael, they explore what it's like to build a business that works for you, not one you are left trapped working in.

By creating systems and processes that make the work that you and your team easy to replicate, you’ll create a bookkeeping business that can run without you, that won’t shut down if you lose any staff, and can be easily scaled to accommodate increases in growth.

If you are struggling and want to move from people-driven to system-driven processes, this is the episode to get you thinking differently about the future of your bookkeeping business.

During this interview, you'll learn...

  • The value of connecting with a supportive community
  • How to build a bookkeeping business that works for you, not one you work for
  • The importance of building client relationships in your own way
