This morning I went to see my new accountant to talk some stuff over. She has been taking care of my finances for a couple of weeks now but up until then, I used to do it myself (well, I tried at least).

The truth is, I’m not an expert when it comes to taxes and forms and all the other things related to the financial side of the business. But I’m not very good at giving up control over something either. That’s why I hesitated a long time before consulting with her.

But today was a bit of an eye-opener for me. She does an incredible job and she also takes her time to explain things to me in a way I understand them. So I guess sometimes it is perfectly ok to give up control and let someone else handle the things that I’m not fond of. Ultimately, this gives me more time to do the things I’m an expert in. That’s what I learnt today.
