Who Would Do a Job Like That?
Besides small business owners doing their own bookkeeping, there are thousands of people who choose bookkeeping as a career. Organizing numbers and paperwork, and utilizing their math skills is very appealing to a broad range of people. It is also also a stepping stone to more advanced accounting practices.
There will always be a huge need for this type of work. Every single business has to have a bookkeeping system and somebody to administer it. As long as business is alive and well on planet earth bookkeeping will be around.
There is a misconception that bookkeeping is boring and full of staid, dull men and women, but think about it... even Hollywood and famous people rely on bookkeepers to look after their sacks of cash. “Yes, Mr Pitt, I can have your expense report to you within the hour”. “Yes, Ms Portman, I have got that receipt for your flight to London...”. Nothing boring about that!
Ok, so not everyone will work with celebrities, but only you can make the decision for yourself about whether or not bookkeeping will bore you.
