4 Quick Tips For Keeping Your Business Organized

Are you feeling a little overwhelmed?  As a small business owner, it's not uncommon...but, keeping your business organized and the paperwork duties to a minimum will help reduce those feelings.

So, here are 4 quick tips for keeping your business organized and any overwhelming feeling in check:

Tip #1: Don't put off your paperwork!  Create a simple accounting system system (a basic spreadsheet will do) to keep track of your incoming and outgoing funds so that you can easily balance your books at the end of each month.

Tip #2: Create a simple filing system of folders on your desk or workspace so you can easily organize hard copy receipts and documents.

Tip #3: Set a goal to complete your paperwork duties at the start of your day so it doesn't pile up...and, try to keep it under 30 minutes so you'll have the rest of the day completely for creativity!

Tip #4: If your business is growing beyond spreadsheets, then try using free online services like the online accounting tools at Outright. You can easily do your bookkeeping online saving you time and headaches of managing spreadsheets.

Do you have any tips for keeping your business organized?
