I Hate Quickbooks! I don’t care that it’s created by Intuit, it is anything but intuitive for me! Last year my CPA spent more time cleaning up my QB than preparing the taxes! I try to get a report and the numbers that come up don’t make any sense! Simply put…I HATE QUICKBOOKS!!!!
I’m remembering the story told by Tony Robbins about how he turned over the finances to a partner while he did the workshops only to discover the partner had embezzled almost $750,000. And it only came to his attention when the creditors start calling. Lesson I took away: figure out QB even if it kills me! Problem is – I think it’s gonna!
There’s got to be a solution!
Thanks to Audrey Goodwin and E-Women’s “I Don’t Do Numbers!” there is…. I hired a bookkeeper: Miriam Davis from Everything Quarterly– someone I’ve known for years and she loves numbers! She’s pleased to be working my numbers – and I’m relieved. AND she’s going to help me understand the numbers.
So, I won’t be abdicating my responsibilities. I will be learning about the numbers and what they mean, and I’ll be using my time more productively. At the same time, I’m allowing someone who is passionate about numbers (there really are people who are passionate about numbers!!!) do her thing and get paid too. Win/Win
Is there something you could be delegating that would allow you to spend your time doing what you are good at – and someone else do what they are good at – and get paid to follow their passion?
