Myth about Accounting
I can handle my accounting myself I have QuickBooks
QuickBooks is an awesome program and one that I use on a daily basis, but it does not take the need for an accountant away. As a matter of fact, most open QuickBooks only to become overwhelmed and confused. Having this program is very good and can become an awesome tool, but your accountant needs to help you set it up, educate you on how you can and should use it, and come in periodically to be sure everything is in order, run reports, and fix problem areas. You can be wonderful in business but unless you know how to operate the accounting side of your business perfectly, you should really do yourself a favor and at least get advice from an accountant on this process.
