"I agree with Quickbooks. You could do the Simple Start...look at the features and see if it would work. It's cheaper. And you could go on Amazon and get the 2009 version which is cheaper still."

Business cards in Christmas cards

What do you guys think? I had plans to send out humorous Christmas cards to family and friends with a note about how the family is doing (some live out of state). I just started up my bookkeeping business. Would it be bad practice to stick in my business cards and promote my business to them? I can do bookkeeping via remote computer so advertising across the country would be beneficial.Should I send out separate ones that are strictly for the business?Thanks!See More

And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?

Amber -- Welcome to 48Days.net. And thanks for already being a reader of my books.

You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group here. If you’re looking for additional ideas – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.

You're describing a transition a whole lot of others here are making -- from employee to self-employed. And yes, how sad that your skills are only being used 25% of the time - wow.

Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! -- Dan Miller – 48 Days
