Starting a small business can be very challenging. You have to know how to productively manage time, money, and customers. While these skills may sound simple, they’re often the key components which small business owners struggle with the most. In order to succeed in the business world, sometimes we all just need a helping hand.
Kaylin Leland, owner of The Bean Counters Bookkeeping says that business owners take on several different tasks at once. “As a business owner you have the five hundred different hats that you have to be responsible for at any given time and outsourcing the bookkeeping requirements gives you time to go home and have dinner with your family. Or even focus more on growing your business without the overhead of hiring an in-house bookkeeper." Thus began the vision of a bookkeeping firm that provides financial support services to small businesses in the Wilmington, NC area and all across the United States.
The Bean Counters Bookkeeping was first launched in April 2013. Leland’s entrepreneurial passion first started in a small, but successful bike shop called Bike Cycles. While there, she helped manage the shop on a day to day basis. Not too long after, she graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a Masters in Science in Accountancy. She followed her accounting degree with a career in the federal government as an auditor for the U.S. Army. Her passion did not stop there. Leland reminisces, “After working for the Army for a couple of years I wanted to get back to that small business relationship. You know; seeing the passion in people’s eyes when they start their business and it starts to work and grow and I wanted to work in that realm again.” The Bean Counters Bookkeeping started out like many small businesses - a local focused service based company helping other like minded business owners in the community. As technology became more widespread, and online accounting systems increased functionality, The Bean Counters Bookkeeping branched out and now serves business across the U.S. in a virtual setting.
Leland’s bookkeeping business provides budgeting, cash flow analysis, QuickBooks setup and training, and many other services. “The biggest thing I hope to achieve is to help my clients grow. It isn’t just about me growing, it’s about helping them grow as well,” she stresses. Thus far, she has helped numerous small businesses not just in her local area, but many others who are embracing the savings of time and money (and other benefits) of cloud based accounting.
