Running a Successful Online Business : Paperwork


May 10, 2011

I am joined by Lisa Guillot of Step Brightly to bring you another great topic on the Running a Successful Online Business video series : Paperwork- not always fun but oh so helpful!
Often neglected by us crafters, the paperwork is probably the most vital part of running a business. I have learned to embrace it (not really, but I have trusted others to help me with it) over the course of 3 years of running my own business. Decisions such as renting a studio space outside my home or hiring part time employees wouldn’t have been made if I didn’t have a clear understanding of how my finances looked like not only on monthly basis, but for the upcoming seasons.

Useful Resources:
Software for book keeping: Quick Books Pro, K Billing, Fresh Books, Outright
Hiring help
Lena Kiefor, (doesn’t have a website, but can be reached at globaltaxcpa@gmail.com) runs a company called Executive Global Tax & Payroll, big name for just her, but she comes highly recommended from another graphic design studio. Among other things Lena does invoicing, monthly budgets, payroll + accounting.
Another woman Lisa met recently is Angie Noll who owns Norita Co.  Norita helps individuals and businesses with daily money management and organization. Who doesn’t need that?
