The Value of Doing a Good Job - Lee Davis and Company

The Value of Doing a Good Job

What is the value of doing a good job? Attraction. There are a lot of bookkeepers in the world, but how many of them are doing a good job? I’m not sure. There are probably quite a few good bookkeepers, but from what we have seen at Lee Davis and Company, there are quite a few bookkeepers that are not doing a good job.

This is true of most fields. It is hard to find a good… (fill in the blank). How many times have you heard that? I’m guessing quite a few times. Thus, I hypothesize that there are a lot of people doing an average job, but few doing a good job.

There are a lot of reasons for this.

  1. They don’t know they can do better. (think they can’t)
  2. They don’t know how to do better. (don’t have the right mentors)
  3. They don’t know why they should do better. (need a stronger “why”)
  4. They are not doing a job that is in their zone of genius. (not suited for bookkeeping)
  5. They don’t spend the time necessary to do a good job. (too overwhelmed with work)

This week’s How I Rocked the Week pertains to this because this week Lee cleaned up a company’s bookkeeping mess. By reading this post, I hope you can see the importance of doing a good job. There are many benefits to doing a good job. Read about those benefits at the bottom of the post.

How I Rocked the Week – Week of July 13th

Lee Davis and Company received a referral from a CPA firm last week. The company the CPA firm referred needed immediate help with their bookkeeping and business operations. They had been without their bookkeeper and had had two bookkeepers since loosing their full-time person. Lee was so happy about getting this referral because we specialize in helping companies who need to have their messes cleaned up.

Lee is trained in Quickbooks both the desktop and the online products. Thus, he has the skills necessary to fix the problems that led to the bookkeeping mess. To fix the problems, Lee went right to work and made a few changes to Quickbooks. The changes brought order and efficiency to the clients books. Lee was so happy that he had the necessary skills to fix the client’s problems and save him time with future bookkeeping.

Here is what our client has to say after working with Lee Davis and Company for only two days: “Thank you for your assistance this morning; it was a huge help, and thank you for all you accomplished so far in straightening out the mess all the bookkeepers left.” 

It is our experience that often times businesses need help because their bookkeeping is a mess. That’s where we come in. Lee Davis and Company specializes in creating organization through automating transactions and balancing peoples books.

This helps our clients get a handle on their finances, which helps them make decisions that will support future growth. Thus, we move our clients from scattered to organized to accomplished.

Our success in cleaning up messes has lead to many referrals and continues to fuel our business.

Could this be you? Are you having trouble balancing your books? Are you frustrated because you’re spending too much time on your bookkeeping? 

We can help you work on your business while you work in your business. 

Benefits of Doing a Good Job:

Lee has always made it his goal to work as hard for his clients as possible. That means that he goes above and beyond for his clients. In fact, this week he helped one of his clients move furniture, which isn’t in his job description!

The benefits of doing a good job are abundant.

Growth Mindset Development

Growth mindset. You hear that phrase everywhere, but what does it mean? It means that you believe you can grow. It’s simple but powerful. Now, why is this something you have to intentionally develop? There are a lot of negative forces bearing down on you that try to say that you can’t grow and change, but if you believe you can change, you will change. Mindset is everything.

Therefore, push for the stars by believing that you can grow. Yes, you have limits, but your attitude needs to be, “Today I can learn something new. Today I can get just a little bit better at that thing that I’m not good at.” If you believe that, you have a growth mindset.

Entrepreneurship is the ultimate way to develop a growth mindset. This is because you will be forced to do things out of your comfort zone, just because you are the only one who can do it. Does this mean that you have to be perfect at everything? No, but it does mean that you will get better at a lot of things that you shied away from in the past.

Do things that scare you.

What scares you? Go towards it. If public speaking frightens you, spend every week working on your public speaking. The better you get at that particular skill, the more you will believe in yourself. This will help you develop a growth mindset. With a growth mindset, entrepreneurs can do anything. Without a growth mindset, you are confined to a box, which limits your potential as an entrepreneur.

Growth Mindset at Work at Lee Davis and Company

At Lee Davis and Company, we believe that our clients are all special and unique and that each one of them has something to contribute to the world. We would like to help you develop a growth mindset, which will bring your company to the next level.

Lee Davis and Company is focused on supporting their clients in business and bookkeeping so that you can grow your business beyond your wildest dreams.

We hope this posts inspires you to try new things. Erase the word “can’t” from your vocabulary and replace it with “can do that better”.

Rocking the Week of July 5th

Lee had an adventure with a client that needed her payroll files retrieved from Quickbooks. The client had maxed out her storage space on her Windows computer and wasn’t able to do a backup of her Quickbooks file. 

Lee is a man of many hats in his business.

Although Lee is not an IT specialists, he is called on to fix messes, which require utilizing the tools within Quickbooks to retrieve his clients computer files. Solving problems that involve computers is not the kind of work that Lee is used to doing; it is out of his comfort zone. But, because Lee is an entrepreneur and wants to do everything that he can to help his clients. Thus, he used his training, for both the desktop and online Quickbooks products, to retrieve the client’s Quickbook files on her computer. 

A CPA once told Lee the strength of his company is that he knows how to work within Quickbooks and utilize the tools and resources Intuit offers Pro-Advisors. Thus, in this instance, Lee was able to use Quickbooks to solve the clients problem by retrieving lost information. By doing so, Lee was able to pay the client’s employee and transfer her files to the cloud. 

Takeaway

What Lee learned this week is that no matter the obstacle, he will work to solve the problem. By having a positive attitude and utilizing all the resources at his disposal, he can take on any challenge. This week at the end of the day, Lee had a very happy client, and Lee felt a sense of accomplishment. 

Lee hopes that you learn from his experience and try to tackle those tasks that you’re not comfortable with. For Lee, working out of his comfort zone meant that he gained more confidence in his skills as an entrepreneur. He hopes the same for you.

Tips on Developing a Growth Mindset

How will you push yourself to be growth minded? There are so many things you could do. Start with something little. Exercise, for example, is a good way to build a growth mindset. Do a kind of exercise that you didn’t think was possible. Work on it every day and document your progress. Every time you make progress towards your goal, remind yourself that you are making progress and that you didn’t think you could do that before.

Growth = Happiness

Human beings need to feel like they are making progress. In fact, that’s where true happiness lies. Therefore, go out, grow your business and be happy. Bless this world by making your business as amazing as we know you can.
