Why would the boss need to learn how to do the bookkeeping? Isn’t that something you hire someone else to do?
Well yes, you do. BUT, many of us start our businesses playing all of the roles because there isn’t budget to hire someone to handle those things that we don’t want to do. Even if you want to hand it off to someone else as soon as humanly possible you still need to know the basics.
