You wear a lot of hats as an entrepreneur, right? If you’re like many small business owners, you bootstrapped your company and you’re used to doing it all on your own. It would be great to add another 5 hours to your day, right? Wrong! Stop the madness and delegate.

Payroll is serious business. You depend on your employees and your employees depend on accurate and timely paychecks. If you’re scrambling to figure out payroll minutes before your staff shows up for work (and their pay), it’s time to reach out for professional help.

Adding a payroll expert to your team, not only saves you time, but it provides peace of mind that payroll taxes are calculated correctly and your staff gets accurate paychecks.

Have you ever had an employee dispute their pay? It can be quite a hassle and let’s be honest, you have enough to do! J. Ott Business Solutions will get it right the first time.

Here are 5 reasons you need to add me to your team!

1.) You cannot clone yourself
Unfortunately, technological advances have not yet come far enough to undergo self-cloning. You’re still only one person. I’ll keep you updated on any new developments. Stay tuned! Until then, hand payroll off to an expert.

2.) Adding more hours to the standard 24-hour cycle is an unpopular opinion
To avoid large-scale rioting, I recommend keeping the cycle of one day at just 24-hours. If you’re up late the night before payday, let a professional step-in. You need your beauty sleep.

3.) Payroll is unfun
Payroll isn’t the most exciting thing to do in the wee hours of the morning just before payday. In fact, it can be quite nerve-wracking; all those tax calculations, withholding, and what does YTD mean again? Let someone else crunch the numbers, make the calculations, and you can just sign the check! Sounds nice, right?

4.) You don’t have time to learn everything so you just wing it

Ok, let’s not do that! Here’s my email address:, we need to talk. Accurate payroll is a must; your staff depends on it. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you definitely need my help. Paychecks are too important to your staff!

5.) You like being the cool boss
Cool bosses have awesome employees. A great way to be a cool boss is to get payroll right, the first time, and on time! When an employee can trust that their paycheck is accurate, they trust their employer! Team loyalty for the win!

It can be difficult to hand over the reins to a professional but delegating is part of growing your business. Let’s talk about sensible solutions that help your business flourish.

What would you do with the extra time? Strategize new ways to expand your business? Enjoy more time with your family? I’m ready when you are, let’s talk!
