For quite some time now, Lee has been spending a large chunk of his time doing the bookkeeping and record keeping for our company. This means that he hasn’t had as much time as he would like to do what he’s best at, which is working with investors and people with property leads. He really wants to spend more time on finding partnerships and exciting properties to work on, especially evaluating leads. But, bills have to be paid, records must be updated, and progress on our goals must be tracked!
We (Lee and Sue Ann) also have our own business, Hermits’ Rest Enterprises, where we own a number of other properties and manage rentals. This all needs tracking, too. There are a LOT of property tax bills to pay, issues to manage, and folks to talk to. This is the business where we have an office in an old house in Cameron, Texas for, where Lee and I often work.
For months now, the front office has been empty. A couple of months ago, we found a great person who agreed to do some of our work part time, moving to full time. But the day before that person was scheduled to start, a better offer (with full benefits) came through. We were happy for that great opportunity, so wished our potential employee well.
