Keeping Profit In Your Pocket with Electa Bartels
Show Notes

In today's podcast, Eric and Larry sit down with long-time friend, colleague, and certified bookkeeper Electa Bartels.  Electa is also the founder and owner of  Profit In Your PocketWhat is Profit In Your Pocket, you ask?  It is bookkeeping exclusively serving the home service industries.

Our conversation today centers around small businesses and some of the unique challenges that face Home Service Businesses, especially when it comes to knowing the numbers.  Bookkeeping often is the last thing a small business owner gets to, and often leads to the Blue Collar Business spiral where money 💵 just seems to swirl out of the checking account, and it often feels like a miracle if the owner can pay themselves after everything else has been paid 💰.

We hope you enjoy our conversation and also glean a little information about small business finances; we especially hope that this conversation will help you learn some tips and tricks to keep profit in your pocket 😀.
