One of my favorite books that I have read over the last few years is Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action, by Simon Sinek. This book essentially talks about how your “why”, i.e. your chief motivation for your business or your cause, can be a powerful motivator and rallying point for success for yourself and everyone you work with. Of course being able to pay bills, buy food and clothing and afford shelter are obvious motivators. But beyond the obvious, in order for your “why” to resonate, it must be aligned to something deeper than simply being able to afford necessities or even to make yourself wealthy.
Reading this book made me think deeply about what our “why” is here at Heru Bookkeeping LLC. In a service based business like bookkeeping, obviously being able to provide top value to our clients is enough of a “why”, but it doesn’t quite get across the one word that defines our “why”, and that word is passion. The main “why” that we have for starting Heru Bookkeeping LLC is the fact that we have a passion for service, for doing our part to help entrepreneurs fulfill their dreams, and to help small business owners to continue being the backbone of the economy. This is our driving force, and our way of attempting to leave our mark positively with each person with whom our business crosses paths.
To be a successful bookkeeper means that you are playing a part in creating successful businesses and keeping them successful, which have effects that go far beyond what we can possibly know. Successful businesses keep people employed, which in this very tumultuous time in history is more and more of a blessing everyday. Successful businesses also provide inspiration for the next group of entrepreneurs, both those who were born for that life, as well as those who may have a great idea and are more than capable of being successful, but who may need to see other stories of success to know that they too can win with hard work, ingenuity and a bit of luck. A successful business who has a clear and noble “why” can revitalize and become the cornerstone of an entire community, becoming a shining beacon of hope and a symbol of opportunity for the downtrodden.
As a bookkeeper, to be able to play a part in the growth and health of these businesses carries a tremendous responsibility, one that we do not take lightly. To become an ally and consultant of sorts to these businesses is a great honor. I truly enjoy playing a part in the success of the people who I am lucky enough to develop a business connection with, helping them to bring their vision to life, and help them see the fruits of their hard work, grind and hustle. Being able to feel this feeling of accomplishment and being able to provide service to my clients is a feeling of success that goes beyond the money earned from providing the service. At Heru Bookkeeping LLC, providing the service itself and seeing the benefits of our work in the business (and bottom line) of our clients is the ultimate success.
