Maybe it’s because I didn’t like accounting in graduate school, or maybe it’s because I hate data entry, but I seem to have a strong aversion to Quickbooks. I decided to update my finances today because I had neglected to monitor my cash outflow for several weeks. After entering 2 months worth of data, I noticed I had a discrepancy of $4.00. I spent 30 more minutes obsessively trying to figure out where I had made a mistake. At first I thought maybe I had accidentally bought girl scout cookies or something. Well, it turns out that there were actually two entries that I had mistyped. Doh. I’m pretty sure that once my business launches and I have to keep track of revenue, bookkeeping will be one of the first things I’ll outsource.
I also worked on my brand positioning today, so that my graphic designer would have an easier time with the website design. It has been hard to distill everything about my brand into just a few words and sentences. I’m still working on the positioning wording, but so far I think I have enough to help my graphic designer get started on the website development. I’ll also need to work on web copy this week. Yikes!
Busy busy busy. Hasta manana.
