If you are behind on your small business's bookkeeping, you are not alone. Who can blame you or any other business owners? Bookkeeping is not sexy, nor is it fun. Bookkeeping seems to be a hindrance for most small businesses. It is typically so far behind that it is useless to the business.

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jul 2, 2015 7:30:00 AM

Sitting in Montana looking at weekend temps in the triple digits I felt it was appropriate to write this post. Thankfully over the next two weeks I will be surrounded by cold water; first at the in-laws lake cabin and then on a five day river trip on the legendary Smith river.
