hi there!

April 2nd, 2011 at 07:33 pm


Yes, it's been a couple of years since I last checked in. Sorry about that. I've still been reading your blogs and commenting when I can.

Since my last post, I haven't worked full-time. I've been looking, applying and occasionally interviewing, but nothing has come through. I am very lucky to have SO, because he has pulled us through. Unfortunately he was laid off again a week ago, and is scrambling to try to find something new. Fortunately he has marketable skills!

We bought a house over a year ago and adopted another cat. Living in our own home (with a garden!!) is so fantastic. I can't wait for spring so I can plant again.

An elderly family member passed away and left me a bit of money, which I've used to pay off my student loans (wheeeeee!!!) and invested in my photography business. I am officially up and running now, all the legal business hoopla done, and trying to launch this thing. I am slightly dreading doing my taxes next year because of it, but I have to hope that it will all pay off in the long run. I won't get studio space until I have consistent paying clientele, so at the moment I drag all my equipment around, but that's ok. I love being a photographer.

I need some sort of small business financial software. Any suggestions?

    QuickBooks. I've not used it personally, but I know it's popular. Smile

    HEY!!! Welcome back. Hubby uses Quickbooks as well. Seems straightforward and handles all of his basic business needs. Also makes pulling the tax stuff together easier...

    Welcome back, it sounds like an eventful 2 years for you. I have a friend who also has her own photography studio and I am almost positive that she uses one of the computer tax programs for her business... I can't recall which one. As long as you have some insurance that it's a reliable one, it should lead you through the process with no troubles. Good luck!
