Your Home Business Management - Minding the Store
Bookkeeping, Accounting and Taxes
If you're like me, you consider most bookkeeping and accounting chores just that - a chore. Almost everybody who starts a home business is feasting on their passion, and if your passion isn't accounting, you just want to get it done and over with.
You may want to out-source this aspect of your home business management, but if you want to tackle it yourself, I recommend using Quickbooks.

Guard Your Hard-Earned Money and Reputation
Part of your home business management plan should be to protect your reputation as well as what you earn.
According to ePlanet, "More than 11.1 million adults in the U.S. were victims of identity theft and fraud in 2009, a record number that illustrates both the volume and sophistication of online hackers and phishers, according to financial services researcher Javelin Strategy & Research.
This 12 percent surge in new identity theft incidents translated into a loss of more than $54 billion by consumers and businesses, a figure that security experts predict will only increase this year and through the rest of the decade."
In the past, if the thieves wanted to steal from you they'd just go after your home electronics, jewelry, and your car. But in today's information-based world, there's something even more valuable they can rob you of - your identity.
Armed with your personal information (your name and address, Social Security number or SIN, your credit card information), an identity thief can drain your bank accounts and commit fraud in your name - easily - and usually you won't have a clue it's happened until they're long gone.
More than 15 million people become victims of identity theft every year. An identity is stolen every two seconds in the United States.
Did you know:
1. More than 15 million people become victims of identity theft every year.

3. Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. for the past four years and the trend is expected to continue
Holy Hannah! I knew it was bad but that's downright scary.
