In this NICHE series episode, I chat with Haley Bonczek, who specializes in the Property Management industry. She’s the owner of Thrive Bookkeeping and a mother of three, and has overcome many challenges on her journey to find the perfect balance between being a mom and running a successful bookkeeping business.
Haley started her business back in 2017 with the intention of creating a sustainable job that she could continue to do once she had children. Her oldest daughter was born in 2019 and she maintained a business that had no niche, few systems, and a couple of contractors for about a year before she became fed up with the cycle of stress it was causing her. She decided to offload several headache clients as well as her contractors and ran a bare-bones bookkeeping business for a few years. Fast-forward to today, she has focused in on her niche, Real Estate Professionals, has two contractors, and is working hard *on* the business to create repeatable systems and processes and less so *in* the business. What was once a headache that she often thought about scrapping altogether has once again become a passion that gives her a creative mental outlet while also giving her time to spend with her three daughters.
