Or something like that, right? Maybe you've launched "something" because you are a passionate creator or a freedom seeker or simply a struggling survivor and you have a skill, a product or a passion you feel is unique, could solve problems or provide a personal benefit to a target audience?
Maybe you've got this great idea and are starting some research. Did you spend any money or are you still in the "Google it" stage? You're thinking about it though and you're thinking about it a lot! Sometimes you lay awake at night dreaming of how awesome it would be if your idea took off and made you rich. Or maybe you just want to create something that will help other people achieve their dreams.
Wherever you are in the process of creating "something" of your own, you believe you can do it better by yourself than doing it for someone else. And chances are, you're going to need some help at some point. That's what I am here to do. Help.
Money comes in and money goes out. You sell something. You pay bills or buy materials. You track your mileage (yeah, right). And maybe you even put some money in your pocket. (woo hoo!) But then April 15th rolls around and Uncle Sammy comes a knockin'. Don't get caught with your pants down and end up shoving your "something" under the rug or throwing it away because of the tax bill. Sound simple enough, right? Crossed-eyed yet?
Understanding basic accounting principles and how they relate to your business is extremely important. And knowing how taxes are involved in the whole process is critical..
The point really is that whether you've started your business or are thinking about starting your business, it's probably important for you to talk to someone about how to do it the right way and, most importantly, how to handle the money part. After all, isn't that the reason you started doing "something" in the first place?
So, You Started a Business allows me to share with you key concepts to operating a business from the perspective of accounting and taxes. All businesses, whether a small operation with one person or a large multi-national corporation with 100,000 people, have the same departments. And all of those departments are centered around the money.
Wouldn't it make sense to get some help with the money?
