first day of preschool

I spent a lot of time thinking about preschool for Rhett and trying to justify it. After all, he just turned 3, he has years of school ahead of him, it's expensive, etc. But I knew preschool would be so good for Rhett--he is smart and curious and social and loves adults in authority who aren't his parents. He needed preschool. I didn't want to spend $1,000 or drive all over town, but we lucked out with the cutest church preschool 2 minutes from our house with great teachers and small class sizes. I was sold!
I even got to take Rhett school supplies shopping, which was a dream come true for me. To no surprise, he loved it--it's in his genes.
We drive past the school almost every day, and Rhett has been announcing it as his school for months. After the open house last week, he asked every day if he could go to school that day. Well, baby boy, the big day arrived!
Yep, I went all in with a new school outfit and pictures. I'm that mom. 

Rhett was a total champ. He walked in, hung up his backpack, and found his name apple all on his own. This kid is meant for preschool. And at the end of the morning, he and his teacher only had glowing things to say about the day.
So bring on show and tell, spotlight posters, and school art shows! Crazy that Rhett is in school, but we are so excited for this next phase!

  2. There are many explanations as to why people do this. And if this resonates with you then I’ve set out below the 3 main reasons why you don’t want to hire a bookkeeping online right now.

    You think that you’re saving money by doing it yourself. Why pay someone to do tasks when you can do them yourself ? It doesn’t make sense to you. However, those accumulated hours that you spend updating your website, typing up a report or putting together a newsletter are time that you could be focusing on doing client work and attracting new leads. Remember that every minute that you spend on these types of tasks is a minute that you’re not earning money for your business and if this stacks up then it could seriously affect your bottom line.

    Nobody knows your business like you do. That’s true especially if you’ve built the business from scratch yourself. But if you want to grow your business then you need to understand that it’s important to build a team of people to help you. Whether that’s a bookkeeper to handle the finances, or a virtual assistant to manage the back office tasks. If you try to do it all yourself then you’ll end up burnt out and your business will just become a burden on your shoulders. By delegating tasks to others, you will be able to leverage your time so that you can focus on what’s important for your business.

    You’re frightened of damaging your business reputation. Trust is a major issue for people when they start to delegate work to others. How can you trust other people to do a good job and not damage the reputation that you’ve built up with your clients? One way round this is to have a clear set of policies and values for your business and communicate these to anyone that you outsource work to. Also create a contract with terms and conditions for any associates or contractors that you take on so that there is no misunderstanding about what is required.
