Avoiding bookkeeping nightmares
I love my job. I really do. I’ve been doing the same thing for almost twenty-seven years now and I’m very good at it. For the last seven-plus years I’ve owned my own business. I’m not very good at that. I’m fine with providing my clients with the high-quality service they expect and deserve. What I’m lousy at is the mechanics of running my business. I’m in a tight spot now with Uncle Sam because I got behind on my taxes. I never intended to do that, I’m just so sloppy with my office chores that I got frustrated and allowed myself to procrastinate. This occurred during the time that I was doing some home improvement. Since I hadn’t balanced my checkbook in years, I wasn’t keeping track of the expenses for building materials, carpenters, plumbers and electricians. About the time taxes came due last year I realized I didn’t have enough money to pay them. Uncle Sam is a really nice guy. He’s let me have a payment plan. I’ll get caught up some day. I’ve accepted the fact that my talents lie elsewhere and I'll let a professional handle my books in the future. offers quickbooks bookkeeping services for people just like me. They have a number of attractive packages to choose from. For a very small business like mine, the bookkeeping fees are quite reasonable. There’s no charge for initial setup of my account, and basic services start at ten dollars a month. If you carry a payroll, full service for up to ten employees starts as low as $30.00 a month.

Just dropping by to say Hi.

Sorry about your camera though. Maybe it is time to pamper yourself with a new one.

Have a good week ahead.
