I only recommend the below resources because I truly believe they can add significant value to your business.

Bookkeeping Solutions

 

Quickbooks

QuickBooks has long been the leader in small business bookkeeping solutions. Intuit has been busy improving their offerings to accommodate an increasingly digital landscape with cloud-based producsts like Quickbooks Online and Quickbooks Self-Employed. These platforms can do jsut about anything you need to manage your small business.
Bench gives you a dedicated team who do your small business bookkeeping for you, an intuitive app to track your financials, and financial reports that make tax season easy. Their rates are more than reasonable, and they have teams who are familiar with the needs of online sellers.
Wave is a free accounting software option that also offers mobile add-ons for invoicing, payments, receipts, and even payroll. And it’s simple to upload your ebay or amazon sales data.

Google Sheets or Excel

I’m biased because Excel is my second home, and I don’t think there’s anything it can’t do. Google sheets isn’t quite as robust, but it makes up for it with all of its cloud and sharing capabilities.

Gusto

If you need to set up payroll because you are an S corp owner or have employees, I typically recommend Gusto. They are user friendly and generally pretty helpful. Once you sign up, they walk you through everything you need to do to get it going. And you can add accountants and additional users to your account so they can log in and review anything you might need help with.

Tax Solutions

2022 Tax Season

Please add your name to my 2022 tax prep lineup. This is not a live appointment, and you are under no obligation by signing up. This is how I set aside time to work on your tax return and spread out my workload, so make sure I have all your tax documents beforehand. See the checklist link below. First come first serve!

If you’d like to discuss your tax situation first, feel free to call or send me an email.

MileIQ is the absolute best way to track your business mileage. Your miles are automatically logged and recorded creating a complete record of all your tax deductible and reimbursable mileage. This app has saved me and my clients so much time. And it transfers directly to bookkeeping software like Quickbooks.

I provide tax services for many individuals and businesses, but the truth is that not everyone needs a CPA. When that’s the case, I recommend TurboTax. It does a really good job at walking you through what you need to do to file your taxes.

Amazon Resources

Jungle Scout has the best Amazon tools out there. It gives you instant product insights on any page as you browse. You can easily see each product’s price, estimated sales, review count and more for an accurate comparison on the fly. I’ve used JS since sourcing my first product on Amazon, and it saved me a ton of time.
Inventory Lab is a slick inventory management solution for Amazon. It is also a valuable research tool. The product scout tool allows you get listing information by ASIN, showing sales rank, category, packing details, competitor prices, etc. Amazon Seller Central provides a ton of information, and it can be pretty overwhelming. Inventory Lab does a better job at giving you what you want by focusing and streamlining all that information.

Ebay Resources

MyCostPro is a simple & economical excel-based selling management tool for eBay. For sellers who want to stick to a spreadsheet but haven’t found their own good system, MyCostPro is a great solution. To get a free 21 day trial, use my coupon code “cpapro” when you checkout.

Personal Finance Resources

Digit is a really cool savings tool that I’ve used for a few years now. Every day, Digit tries to move some money from your checking account to your Digit account. Digit learns your spending habits and never transfers more than you can afford. Before you know it, you have a big pile of savings that you likely would not have had otherwise.
Mint.com is what I have used for years now to track my personal finances and budgeting. Both the PC and mobile app versions are simply awesome, and it’s free. It’s not built for business, but it can also work great for certain small businesses. For example, I use it for my wife’s private violin studio business.
