Ok, let's be honest here. Any of us who run our own business, whether big or small, know that along with all of the joy, passion, creativity and independence comes one majorly horrid, blisteringly boring bit.
Money can be hard to keep track of at the best of times, but I've found that getting my head around Etsy fees, PayPal fees, supply purchases, Market Stall fees, and sales can be nearly impossible. I've tried again and again to set up a beautiful, easy, functioning spreadsheet in Excel, but alas, it was never up to scratch. And so my finances went to... well, an unpretty place.
So, imagine how very excited I was when I found out that there was a brand spankin' new, super-simple, beautiful way of keeping your finances in order... for free. FREE, people. And easy. And clever.
Yes, I was over the moon! Of course, anything this exciting has to be shared with the world, so here it is. Head over to Outright.com and fall in love... then, if your finances are anything like mine were, have some fun entering data and getting all the pretty graphs up.
P.S. By the way... at the moment, everything is functioning at 100% for the U.S., and Australians, Canadians, New Zealanders and other are due to have a full-function 'Tax' section within the next few weeks. I clicked the little link to 'request taxes for Australia' (or whichever currency you work in) and had a response within six minutes! From a person! Wow. Great tool and great customer service. Can you tell I'm in love? So, if you're Aussie or Canadian or New Zealander and plan on using Outright, email them too so that they know the demand is there!
