Make your accounting as awesome as the rest of your small business. Leave the shoebox at home and stale dated desktop programs behind.
Accounting doesn't have to be a "necessary evil". Your invoicing and bill payments can be automated. Customers can easily pay for your work online. Apps can help track down late payments. You can even have a fully engaged expert help manage the finances of your business using your own real time information.
It could be called easy... even... fun.
