Pencil Pushing Made Easy
This just might be the right moment for you to go it your own way and start your own business.
You know you’ve been thinking about it on and off for awhile now.
Well, since the time is right, where do you start?
When you open for business, one of the first critical steps is to make sure your books are in order.
Accounting is so important in business. Not just for tax purposes, unless you know exactly where your money is coming from and where it is going, you won’t be able to make strategic decisions to keep your business afloat and succeed in the future.
While it’s no replacement for a good accountant that can be a great advisor on your side, bookkeeping software can really make your daily business life a little less stressful. Seriously.
Here’s one strong suggestion I have for all entrepreneurs when they open the doors to their new business and haven’t paid any attention to the numbers side of business yet. . .
QuickBooks is one of the standard book keeping software packages that most entrepreneurs turn to. Whether you’re starting an eBay store, brick and mortar retail outfit or service business, QuickBooks Pro or Quicken for Business can make a lot of headaches go away.
But I know, you’re too stingy to pay upfront for “big ticket” items like software even if you know that it will make your life easier in the long run. And you probably don’t think you have time to sit down and learn a new software program, much less accounting!
QuickBooks Simple Start is easy to learn and easy to use, and is an ideal long-term solution for sole proprietors and many other very small business set-ups.
