Owning a business can be incredibly fun and rewarding ' until it comes time to do the books. I know very few people who genuinely enjoy number crunching. Thankfully, there's QuickBooks, accounting software that keeps everything organized and your numbers balanced. Create a database of customer information, enter checks and keep track of your business expenses. The program will even let you know when a check is past-due, so you won't overlook a single payment. QuickBooks frees up your time and brainpower so you can have more time for the fun parts of your business.
