I have been an On Target Member for 4 years now. What I have learned from Linnea and other members has been priceless. Never do I want to take for granted what I have now, that I did not have just a few years ago. I owe this to Linnea and other members of On Target Program. In my earlier years in business I worked too hard. If I had only done this earlier! Working Smarter not Harder is what the On Target Program is about.
These are just a few of the items that I have gotten from On Target…..
- Changing from Cash to Accrual basis accounting. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO
- Installation of QuickBooks™. WHAT WAS I THINKING BEFORE
- Establishment of a Budget with comparisons
- Never Play Credit Card Roulette with Josh…
- Knowing what my bottom line is at any time.
- I now know what my Gross Profit is and how important it is to know it all the time.
- I longer go to the post office or bank
- Delegation of paying bills
- It would be a whole book to write what I learned from the shop hops….
- Establishment of a Merchant Account using Visa and Master card processing
