So... Our first momstown Birthday Bash is over which marked a very joyous occasion in the London community. momstown is now officially in the city! (That deserves a BIG momstown WOOT WOOT!). We had a fantastic time with all of our supporters and guests and have already started planning for even bigger and better next year!
Now that the big event is over and my head is out of the birthday cloud, I'm seeing very clearly that I have a serious business to run and my purse of receipts is not exactly the accounting system I can sustain for much longer.
Luckily for me, I have just received a bright coloured package in the mail called "The Simplicity Principle". At first glance, I was curious to know how this package could help my "less than functional" bookkeeping, but at this point, I was willing to try just about anything.
After a more thorough glance through, The Simplicity Principle is well named as it is extremely user friendly and easy to understand, (especially if 'numbers' aren't your first language). Each month you have a calendar with a pouch to put all of your receipts in. Every day you simply write down on the calendar the amount of sales you have made, and throw any receipts in the pouch. At months end you allocate 2 hours to do your simple bookkeeping, spread out on your desk, table or living room floor, grab a bevvy of choice and follow the simple steps. How easy is that!! The Simplicity Principle gives you a step by step user guide that will have you organized in no time.
The Simplicity Principle and I'm excited to say after only an afternoon I have caught up on over 3 months of my businesses financials. I am now confident that when I visit my accountant, she will be very impressed with my "organizational skills" (wink, wink)!
I look forward to using this tool more and I will definitely keep you posted on my experience!
The Simplicity Principle will keep you organized for a whole year and is a neccesity for the small business owner who doesn't need all the bells and whistles of that fancy (and expensive) computer software!
Right now Chloe (the genius behind The Simplicity Principle) is giving momstown readers $20 off their own copy of The Simplicity Principle when they buy online with the code 'momstown'. Visit www.thesimplicityprinciple.ca.
I am so excited to say that this simple package will take the "pain" out of accounting time for both myself and my accountant. What a great investment!
