What is the difference between a bookkeeper and accountant?
I recently attended the launch of Jack Delosa’s new book, Unprofessional, in which he talks about his experiences as an entrepreneur and business owner.
I was immediately drawn to his chapter on Knowing your Numbers as a business owner and the great decisions you can make when you have them. At Nudge, we love it when business owners and clients know their numbers to make great business decisions!
Jack outlines from his perspective as a business owner and business educator the types of people you need to work with to manage the finances of your business. A bookkeeper and accountant were two key roles that he viewed as critical in any business, no matter the size. I have used extracts from his new book as it gives his perspective as a business owner on how he views the different roles.
