As a small town entrepreneur, you can get sucked into trying to do it all. But here’s a reminder to keep your eyes on your income producing activities.
After a meeting with my CPA Friday, I realized something that I’ve know for a while, but that has made itself crystal clear. I stink at doing my books, and someone else needs to do it. She asked me “when have you reconciled from” I kind of squirmed, and grunted “uhm, reconciled?? “.
2006 will be different, partly because she is going to do all my book work (except for invoices and receivables). I can’t wait to get that monkey of my back and get back to knowing to-the-penny how much money I spent on what items.
I used to have so much time that quickbooks was like a daily musing, now I’m so busy actually doing the work, that it has taken a back seat to finishing web sites. I guess it’s not that different from folks who “know how to do a web site” but that pay me handsomely to do a good professional job…
