Questions about bookeeping.
I've been offered a p/t job doing bookeeping for a local small business. I've never done this though I have done budgeting on large and small projects and accounting for my own department -i.e. make the projections and then account for the expeditures and petty cash.IOW, I feel like I understand the principles.


I took a run at Quick Books and it seems easy enough to use and the business owner is presently using it.


So...what are the pitfalls I need to know? Should I buy my own QB software? How do I calculate the # of hours needed? I'm thinking I need a few hours to go over things and get set up, then maybe 2 hours a week? Any advice or caveats would be appreciated.


This is a great opportunity for me. My goal is to acquire 3 or 4 similar clients and quit my present job.

1. Probably best to get the software. They have a book with it that
will tell you almost everything. They also have a help line you can call.

2. Thanks.
I appreciate your response. Costco has it at a decent price. This whole idea is growing on me. I'm *mature* and my job involves a lot of lifting. There's virtually no support system either so it can turn stressful on a dime.
