My name is Maddy Traynor and I am an intern for the Kael Company.
As an intern for the Kael Company, I have helped a lot with bookkeeping, payroll, and filing (so much filing). Surprisingly, I’ve only been on one coffee run so far! As far as internships go, this one has been pretty fun, especially considering my major. I am currently studying for my Bachelor’s of Business Administration with a concentration in accounting and finance. At my university, I learn about cash and accrual basis accounting, financial statements, methods for accounting for inventory, bonds, and recently, I even had a chapter dealing with budgeting! As a student with a Starbucks addiction, I’d say that was a necessary chapter to study.
Learning about accounting in school isn’t always easy. I took an accounting class in high school, and I was convinced accounting would never be for me. When I tell friends and strangers that I want to be an accountant, the typical response is a look of confusion, surprise, or horror. “Ugh I hate math,” they say. This is totally understandable. Why would someone want to do math for the rest of her life?
However, accounting is much more than math, even if it is numbers-intensive. Honestly, the numbers-intensive part of accounting can be such a pain. Luckily, there are a few of us walking this earth who enjoy numbers. My boss, Kim, is one of them.
She and the rest of my coworkers are excellent at doing all the things many business owners dread: organizing and bookkeeping, taxes (oh, how I hate taxes!), and, yes… even math. My co-workers help to make our clients’ lives easier by taking care of the numbers part of their businesses…the part that so many people hate. Taking over the numbers allows the clients to focus on building their businesses. I’ve seen firsthand the time that goes into running a business, and how important delegating is for business owners. Despite the desire to do it all themselves, many business owners find they don’t have the time or the skill sets to do it all. This is where delegating comes in.
By delegating the numbers part of their business, owners are free to focus on other areas of the business. Many owners who choose to delegate the numbers part find they are better able to manage their time, have more energy, and see their business grow.
Recently, we received this comment from a happy client:
“Kael’s work allows me to get my job done more efficiently!”
While bookkeeping may seem like just another task for an administrative assistant to handle, I’ve learned that the business owner who delegates this part of their business to Kael experiences positive growth and change for their company. So, my advice to business owners is to allow Kael to do what it does best, so you can do what you do best!
