Welcome to Accounting 101 – the series that teaches startup founders how to tackle their own accounting, without a hassle or big time commitment. 

Today we are talking about a question many founders face as they scale: should I be using a software product to handle my accounting, or a real person like a bookkeeper or CPA? 

In this lesson you’ll learn:

  • The role of modern accounting software and tools 
  • What are software tools good and bad at when it comes to accounting 
  • Integrating software and people: getting the best of both worlds 
  • Staying flexible with your solution as your company scales.
