Having a solid foundation is important.  That’s the case with more than just houses… 

With number crunching and report generation, there is a saying “garbage in, garbage out”.  You can’t expect to have meaningful reports if the numbers you put are incorrect, entered haphazardly or a lot of pieces are missing.  The same can be said for software setup.  If you don’t take your time to do it correctly… the rest of the proverbial house will come crashing down around you.

So get it right… take your time and setup up your QuickBooks file right.   You’ll have less headaches later.


To get a copy of the checklist mentioned in the video, check it out here:  QuickStart Checklist.

To see the rest of Module 1:  All About The Setup, you’ll have to check out QuickBooks Basics.

As always, if you have questions… drop us a line:  inquiries[at]thecommoncents[dot]com.

EDITOR’S NOTE/UPDATE (7/2014):  We no longer support Quickbooks.  Both the Checklist and the Training Program Quickbooks Basics have been discontinued.
