  Anyone who knows me, knows that InvoiceSherpa is one of my favourite apps.   And as much as I love and use it every day, I don't log into it much at all; as a matter of fact, I only login once a month.  That’s because this is a “set it and forget it” app.  Before I started using InvoiceSherpa, my accounts receivable at the end of tax season was close to $20,000 and I had no time to follow up because I prepare almost 600 tax returns annually.  Yes, in most of these cases, the returns hadn't been [...]

Get ready to do more with less, LessAccounting that is, sorry I couldn't help myself. A while ago I read a great article from the good folks at Less about how bootstrappers can compete against their better funded rivals and it really spoke to me.

It also just so happens that LessAccounting is also a great integration partner as well. Our goal is simple, get you paid faster. From the time [...]
