I was looking through the Etsy forums the other day and came across a topic where AccountingSPOT was guiding others through some financial issues. And boy am I glad I decided to read that thread! She's freakin' amazing! So of course, being the curious gal that I am, I visited her profile and noticed a link to her website. *Cue angelic music* -- Etsy sellers' (and other small business owners') heaven! The website is nothing short of terrific. It has many basic forms that help with inventory, profit and loss, sales and expenses, etc. The Simple Profit & Loss Spreadsheet is my favorite of the bunch. It's very easy to use and I found it extremely helpful. The other forms are wonderfully helpful too, but that one's just my personal favorite.
What else is worth checking out there? A boatload of informative posts, including this one. There, she introduces a free alternative to QuickBooks -- Outright! I had never heard about it before, and I was really dreading having to pay for a QuickBooks account, so I'm very glad I found this.
What are you waiting for? Check out AccountingSPOT for lots of powerful tools and information to power up and simplify your Etsy (or other small) business!
