For a new business owner who isn’t really familiar with how the books work, keeping up with your business’ finances can be confusing. You know your numbers are important, but you may not know exactly what they mean or how to sort through them.
Damoteddy Ecommerce and bookskeep's SmartStart Program
Damien Law, owner of Damoteddy Ecommerce, was new at handling the accounting for his business and he had questions about what to do. That’s when he found bookskeep’s SmartStart Program, and he’s been crunching the numbers ever since! We asked Damien for his thoughts on our SmartStart Program and he shared his experience with us.
What are a few things about bookskeep’s SmartStart Program that stand out to you?
It was a program that had ecommerce sellers specifically in mind.
What is one major difference you’ve noticed in your business since working with Kelly and the SmartStart Program?
I’ve noticed that I’ve been able to really see where my cash is going and that my accounting structure has been much more organized.
What part of SmartStart would you say was most effective in helping you understand how to manage your accounting?
I’d definitely say the calls. Kelly has been beyond helpful in answering any newbie accounting questions I had that helped me understand my accounting structure.
Is there a benefit to being so hands-on in your finances?
Definitely! I’ve been able to see exactly where my money is going and can trim the fat on expenses that I don’t really need.
Has your understanding of your numbers improved since you began our SmartStart Program?
Tremendously. After the program, I’ve been able to maneuver my way through QuickBooks and quickly glance at my balance sheet and P&L through the custom sheets I was given.
