Guest Blog, Tracey Lawton

Lisa's Foreword:

Numbers have never been my strong suit. I'm more of a right-brainer. But as my business has grown I have had to learn to understand, record, and track certain things dealing with numbers in order to make sure I was keeping my business legal in the eyes of the "tax collectors" as well as ensuring I was staying profitable.

I tried a few other people's systems for tracking my #s but found them more complicated than helpful and never kept up with them. Thankfully, 2 years ago, I designed my own excel spreadsheet that has worked very well for me, and each year I have tweaked a few things to make it even more helpful. Now I share this template with my private clients so they can have a simple tracking system that will be likely to work for them.

Today I ran across an article from Tracey Lawton, which explained this concept very well. And because it is such an important element of running a serious and profitable business, I decided to postpone the post I was going to share today so I could pass Tracey's information on to you this week.
