Looking

Running a business is not a joke no matter how small it is. I've never had a business of my own but now that the husband is running one, I can tell how stressful it can be. As much as possible he tries to leave work at work but sometimes it cannot be avoided. Much as he doesn't want to do it, he has to do a lot of the office work besides doing the 'actual' work. To lessen that office work load, they hired an accountant from day one. The first one they hired didn't work out well so they got another one. This one has been with them for a number of years. Sadly, she's not cutting it. There are days when hubby's so stressed I just wanted to volunteer and do the work of that person. The last 'oopss' she did cost the company some extra money in tax. Needless to say, they are now looking for a different tax preparer to do their taxes for this year. I believe they already interviewed a couple of people for the position but they haven't found the one they want.

Back in high school, I took some accounting subjects as part of our curriculum. I know that's not enough but if worse comes to worst, I'll be willing to learn the basics of accounting in order to help them out. I know it's only a matter of time before I would be asked to help out in some ways so I'm thinking of either taking some lessons or just do some self-study to prepare me for it. As it is right now I feel like I'm already part of what's happening because I get to hear almost everything that happens there. So why not be a part of it and actually do some work to ease the husband of some stress. The only question is...am I up to it? Maybe....if not, then I should probably help them look for a tax preparer myself. That's the least I can do for them.
