How to Productively (and effortlessly) handle your invoices, income and expenses as a business owner

Put the dreaded accounting tasks on autopilot and save hours each week.

You may be like me and have a business of your own.  Either you’re just starting, or you’ve been going for a while now.  Your business may be a side hustle or your full time operation.

 Either way, you know keeping track of your clients’ invoices, payments, sales tax, etc. can be challenging.  This is a time killer for most.  It keeps you away from your business, and worse yet, time with your family.  

 

Being a busy mom, and business owner, I struggled to keep up on my business invoices and expenses.  Being the business owner, operator, and accountant book keeping was my weakest link.  

 

I could never justify spending the money on a full-blown accounting program to keep track of my business’s simple income and expenses.  Then my business grew, and it grew some more and I was falling further into chaos.  

Once my business got large enough that it became difficult to keep track of income, and expenses using my “go-to” Excel spreadsheets, I knew there had to be something else.  Something that didn’t require an accounting degree to figure out.  Luckily, I found the simple solution with Freshbooks.  

I looked at several options, did reviews, and tried the free trials of a couple cloud based programs that are out there.  Freshbooks turned out to be the best option for me.  With its ease of use and awesome customer support it was simple to integrate into my business.  I even got to create a pretty header for the top so it matches my brand.

Can it get any better!?  Actually, it can!  With Freshbooks you can even accept payment via credit card (fees do apply) so you get your money so much quicker.  No more snail mail!  

Freshbooks takes care of recording my expenses, income, and sales tax.  As a type-A personality I like to have everything clearly laid out and organized and Freshbooks does that perfectly.  When tax season comes around I know I will have everything ready and the click of a button.
