Finding it hard to focus on your core business because there’s no one to answer client calls? Are you failing to streamline your processes and timelines which could result in losing your key team members? If yes, then you might find yourself asking:  


Where can I get help in growing my capacity by finding and retaining accountants and finance specialists without skyrocketing expenses and at the same gain freedom to innovate my services?”  


So for those who’d like to resolve this dilemma might resort to building a 100% onshore team. On the surface, it seems less risky, but the expenses and the difficulty with having a limited talent pool don’t make this option viable for all.
