Your advice here is spot on. In my non-writing day job, I am self-employed, teaching financial analysis and related skills to commercial lenders. Financial management is a key answer to the big question: Is this business set up to be successful? Understanding basic financial concepts and accounting, acquiring appropriate tools, such as the program you mentioned, and seeking professional accounting advice when needed—these are investments of time and resources that pay for themselves over the long run.
Great, great article! Thanks for the info, this is something I have struggled with for several years.
