Bookkeepers provide the life-giving oxygen for everyday commerce. Without bookkeepers, businesses wouldn’t know if they’re making or losing money, getting ahead or falling behind. Without bookkeepers, the world would likely grind to a halt and cease to do business.

I also show no fear and dive into the debits and credits of double-entry accounting. Is it indecent that a person could have so much fun? Maybe — but you’re just the person for the job.
