Attention: All Embroiderers that want to save time and be more efficient in their embroidery business!
Do you find yourself spending hours, days or weeks getting your books ready to go to the accountant to have your taxes done at the end of the year? Do you get discouraged and then decide that you are never going to let this happen again, only to find yourself in the same mess the next year! I understand, I have been there and done that! If this sounds like you, then I want you to answer even more questions:
Do you know which area of your business is making you the most money?
Do you know which area of your business is costing you the most money?
Do you know exactly where you stand financially in your business today?
Can you print out a Profit & Loss report instantly and know exactly where you are at this moment?
Is creating an invoice a real hassle?
Do you put off creating your invoices because you have to spend a lot of time trying to figure out what to charge your customers for the job that is already finished?
Do you have your customers listed on a spreadsheet but have a hard time locating it when you need it?
Do you know how much work you have in your shop at all times?
Are you ready to take your finished books to the accountant for your taxes as soon as the year is done?
If this sounds like your situation, you need some help! I have found that most embroiderers have no idea as to where they stand financially in their business and they do not know how to find out! This is sad but true.
I totally get that. I used to spend weeks going through all of the shoe boxes to make sure that I had all of the pieces of paper gathered together and add them to spreadsheets ready for my accountant. I had no idea as to what to do to get myself organized enough to do this on a weekly or monthly basis when I first started my business. I had no time to do this, I was too busy taking care of my customers and creating their products.
Bookkeeping was not in my thoughts at all. I found a program at the office supply store that I used to create invoices with but it did nothing else. I paid for my supplies when I purchased them so I had a record in my checkbook of those purchases but that is all that I had. A record of deposits and checks that I had written, that was it! I did not know if I was making a profit or losing money until after my accountant finished my taxes. It was embarrassing when I sat down with my accountant and had to admit that I had no idea as to what to do to get my mess straightened out.
I continued that nightmare for several years. I went to the bank to borrow some money and the banker gave me the name of an accountant that really was a great help to me. The banker said I had to have a business plan before they would even consider talking to me about a loan and the accountant could help me put it together. My new accountant found out very quickly that I had no bookkeeping system so he set me up with “QuickBooks” and started helping me put a system together.
Once I got into it I really enjoyed it and decided to take an accounting course at our local college at night so that I could have a better understanding of it. That was the beginning of learning how to systematize my business and my bookkeeping. My business totally changed when I finally got a handle on my bookkeeping and I was finally aware of where my business was profitable and where I needed to make some drastic changes!
