I went to see my accountant today.
God, that sounds so grown up… my accountant. Actually he’s more of a bookeeper but that sounds less grown up so I wasn’t going to tell you that part.
I have had a growing sheaf of papers indicating where I have spent money since the inception of my little enterprise and a couple of deposit slips indicating cash coming in. However, there was no kind of order [read, at all…] and things all got kind of messed up between, my personal account and business bank accounts, and dollars going here there and everywhere, [read, robbing Pete to pay Paula] so it was time to Take Steps and get on the Right Track.
So, we installed MYOBon the Dell and I watched Bill (aptly named, so I left his appelation as is) punch my various bits of financial data into the appropriate fields and the truth is I feel no more grown up than I was this morning. In fact, my head is all rather muddled, because he left me with some of the accounts to do for myself… to put with that learning by doing thing I mentioned yesterday.
The problem is if I break the accounts I have no idea about how to fix them…
