Countdown of Top 5 Podcast Episodes of 2019

This year has been filled with ups and downs but overall, it’s been a ton of fun.  It’s been a long time since I’ve done a countdown post. Because I’m taking a bit of a hiatus from the podcast for the month of December, I thought it would be a great time to do one, just for fun.  Who knows, it might become a thing…

I’m going to do the top 5, updating this post each Monday as we work our way through the month.

Let’s get the party started…

Top 5 Podcast Episodes of 2019

Number 5:  Episode 02 – Fall In Love With Your Business…By The Numbers

One of my absolute favorite episodes because it’s more of a love letter and story about how I got back to doing what I love in my business…while providing a few lessons for others that find themselves in a similar rut.

Listen to the full episode here.

Number 4: Episode 014 – Getting Paid: How To Pay Yourself (Part One)

After encountering the “how to pay yourself” question more than a few times in various groups on Facebook and LinkedIn, I got around to doing a series of episodes to discuss the topic.  This episode was created primarily for solopreneurs and single member LLCs business owners.

Listen to the full episode here.

Note:  If you’re the owner of an S-Corp or a C-Corp… you can check out a similar episode here.

Number 3:  Episode 016 – Bank Reconciliations:  The What, When, & Why

The term “bank reconciliation” is a bit of a blanket term because it includes bank accounts, credit card accounts, lines of credit, etc.

The point is to reconcile or match your book balance to the balance of your bank, credit card provider, lender, etc.  You get the drift.

This episode, I run through not only what it is but what to do, when to do it and why you should do it…so you’re doing more than just merely going through the motions.

Number 2:  Episode 009 – Bookkeeping Basics You Can’t Ignore

Bookkeeping can be boring and intimidating and a bit overwhelming, especially if you haven’t been keeping up with it throughout the year.

But guess what, it doesn’t have to be any of those things.

It can (and should be) a tool that you can use to plan and scale your business… sooner than later.

In this episode, I gave four quick tips to get you on board with bookkeeping. Just the basics to get you started and building a solid financial foundation.

Number 1:  Episode 029 – Messy Money Costs Money

Messy bookkeeping and accounting that has gone undone and unchecked for too long can cost you not only money but time and tax deductions.

Episode 032 – Stop Hiring The Wrong People

Episode 032 – Stop Hiring The Wrong People

About This Episode

This episode is a bit of a rant/what grinds my gears because I’m tired of seeing small business owners taken advantage of by so-called virtual bookkeepers.

What kicked this up for me was seeing a post about rules for a group that didn’t want there to be “negativity” in the group surrounding calling out inexperienced bookkeepers.

So in this episode, I run down why all of this bothers me, the ulterior motives of some group owners, why it’s hurtful to business owners and professionals…and what to do about it.
