Our Workshop on Bootstrapping and Accounting for Startups

Written by on Jun 17 2013

On Friday I put on a workshop about bootstrapping and accounting for startups and small businesses. The workshop was hosted by the awesome folks at Office Nomads. As usual I was prepared to talk about a lot different topics:

  • Starting
  • Raising money
  • Transitioning to products
  • What’s most important
  • Work/life balance
  • Marketing
  • Partnerships
  • Sales
  • Hiring
  • Managing clients
  • Managing projects
  • What to spend money on
  • The payroll monster
  • One big client
  • Taxes
  • What your books can tell you about your business
  • And many others

Since we’re limited on time I start by asking the folks what they want to hear about, so I can make sure to cover those things. I was surprised, this time, by how many people wanted to hear about starting, picking a business type (LLC, LLP, S-Type, etc), insurance, the corporate veil, and how to do bookkeeping for a tech business.

We stopped after two hours, advice was given, knowledge was shared, friends were made. It was a great time, and I’m looking forward to the next one.

Allan and/or I will be doing these workshops all across the country, all summer long. It would be great if you joined us for one or more of them. Or please invite us to speak in your city and we’ll try to make a special trip.
