On today’s episode, Kunle is joined by Nathan Hirsch, CEO of EcomBalance,  a bookkeeping service provider for eCommerce businesses that gives detailed monthly reports and analysis so that business owners can make smarter decisions geared toward growth.

Nathan Hirsch was the founder and CEO of FreeeUp, a freelance platform that grew into a multimillion-dollar business until he sold it and exited in 2020. During the pandemic, he also went on and created two other platforms called Outsource School which teaches the best practices for hiring freelancers, and EcomBalance.

A client working with EcomBalance will be provided a team leader and bookkeeping staff and financial controller who all work together and specialize in eCommerce. Nathan emphasizes the need for a bookkeeper who will keep your books clean monthly and can provide reports on time as it is essential for most things like taxes and for buyers to be able to build interest and trust in the business.

It’s an insightful episode as you’d hear Kunle and Nathan talk about Nathan’s experience in building his businesses and being financially free for life, tips as an eCommerce seller as well as a service provider, the importance of clean books, and creating a clear division between the roles of an entrepreneur and a bookkeeper/accountant. They also give their perspectives on the eCommerce industry in 2022. This is a great episode for eCommerce sellers who want to build and scale a trustworthy business.
