Today the boss went on vacation and guess what he gave me…the Signature Stamp. I couldn’t believe it when he handed it to me. I think my smile was from ear-to-ear. Doesn’t he realize how stupid it is to give me the signature stamp?
“Are you sure you want to give this to me?” I asked all innocent like. In the back of my mind, I was already calculating how much money I might be able to get now that I had this new stamp.
“Of course. I trust you,” he told me with an amused little smirk.
I just started my new job today, and it’s perfect. It’s a small company with only a few employees, most of whom are never in the office – they all work “in the field.” Also, there’s a receptionist, so I won’t have to be constantly answering the phone (thank goodness for that). The receptionist is very friendly, and I can tell that she’s looking forward to having another woman in the office. Most of the other employees are men – all the better for … Read More →
In my experience (at least with the small businesses I’ve worked with), a business plan is often considered an “unimportant” waste of time, and many small business owners forego creating one. The truth, however, is that a Business Plan can be incredibly beneficial for a business. Not only can a business plan create a “Guide” for a company and its employees, but a good plan can also be taken to the bank in order to try and raise funding for a small business. It can attract investors as well, and it … Read More →
In the August 19th, 2013 Kindle Direct Publishing newsletter, Amazon made a casual mention about Kindle Worlds. Since this was a new tool I had never heard of (and I was about to do an Amazon workshop), of course I had to find out more.
To put it bluntly, Kindle Worlds is a place for writers to create Fanfiction that Amazon will then publish and promote to their Kindle machines. Here is a quote directly from their site:
“Kindle Worlds is a publication submission platform where you choose … Read More →
One of the things I see a lot of when it comes to bookkeeping is laptops…lots of laptops. Some work incredibly well (whether for bookkeeping or anything else) while others work horribly. Thus, I have compiled a list of features to consider when shopping for any laptop, whether for bookkeeping alone, or for business in general.
(If you have any further recommendations, please leave them in the comments so that other readers will know what to consider.)
The following is an excerpt from our newest ebook “How To Start A Lucrative Virtual Bookkeeping Business” which we are launching on June 30th, 2010 and are currently pre-selling for 50% off. While the advice is intended for small bookkeeping business owners, in my opinion, it works for anyone who runs a small business. I would love to get your feedback and hear any comments on printers you love. So, if you have any feedback, please leave a comment below.
Another day, another dollar…or at least, another stolen dollar.
Well – I’ve had my own company for about two weeks now and I’ve made a couple thousand dollars skimming off the deposits. The boss hasn’t noticed. As far as he’s concerned, all of the invoices are paid, and I’m doing my job incredibly well. In fact, I just passed the three month trial period, and the boss gave me a $0.50 an hour raise. When he told me that, I felt like saying, “Really? A … Read More →
She’s embezzling thousands of dollars a month from her unsuspecting Small Business Owner boss. Her boss has absolutely no idea because she seems like such a good woman. It’s that trust which makes it so tempting and so easy for Betty to steal.
Do you have a Betty Bookkeeper? Or are you a Bookkeeper who worries about protecting your reputation? Then this … Read More →
Let me just premise this entry by saying — crap crap crap crap crap.
I got a phone call from the accountant today. It’s tax time, and the accountant wants to meet with me to go over the books. Since I’ve never worked with this accountant before, I have no idea how closely they are going to want to look at the books. I can’t help but fear that the accountant is going to figure out what I’ve been doing if he looks too closely at the books. So I was in … Read More →
