I am a small startup business in Washington, DC in need of a bookkeeper for a 5 employee business. I have tried taking on the task myself, but I also have to wear so many other hats including sales, time does not permit. What resources do you best recommend considering a small budget?
I don't know the best resource but I'd go to the local Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and ask them. Also banks, chamber of commerce, other local business groups, plus the social clubs like Kiwanis and all those. Ask the business school at the local community college too.
Celebrity endorsements work when stars behave. Not when they go off the rails on the crazy train. Now AIG wants to come to the rescue with a way for businesses that dance with the stars to cover their butts.
