Change Offers Opportunity
Change is frightening to most people. But sometimes it’s the best medicine for us.For over a dozen years I worked in a large corporation with great benefits. Raises were an annual tradition, and I was making over four times the salary I started with. In most respects I was happy. But my job was getting old and becoming a drudgery.The thought of leaving my comfortable environment was, to say the least, frightening. So, I decided to take it in stages. I began by starting a bookkeeping service from my home.
Challenges Faced and Overcome Together
Since I worked during normal business hours I faced two challenges: How to meet prospective clients, and how to get the work done during the few free hours I had in the evening. The first challenge was easily solved by prospecting among friends and relatives. These are people I already had a relationship with and that I saw after business hours anyway. My first four clients came through these associations.The second challenge was also easily solved. My wife, Sheri, was a homemaker and three of our four children were in school. With just a few simple instructions I was able to train her to do the data entry which she enjoyed doing. In the morning, before I left for work, I would set out the client’s material, and when I arrived home, the data would be entered flawlessly. I would spend a couple hours reviewing the results, making any needed adjustments, and printing out the reports.After a short time of building my practice the decision to leave my full-time employer was a natural and lucrative one. It was just what “the doctor ordered.”-Allen BostromPresident of Universal Accounting
