Breaking Down Your Business | Small Business | Business Owners | Entrepreneurship | Leadership

What’s In This Episode:

Do you know the difference between cash and accrual accounting? (YUCK.) If you're wondering how much money you've loaned to your clients, where would you look for that? (UGH.) Do you ever pay yourself distributions as opposed to salary? Are those expenses? (GRRR.) If you're like Jill, you can't stand this topic...and if you're like Brad, you know a lot more than she does. But they're pretty important principles, along with a slew of other number basics that any business owner should be familiar with when it comes to that whole money thing you're trying to conquer. So it's time, guys. Tune in to hear Brad lead us through the basics, and check out how they talk about the Top 5 Accounting things that actually matter. They also welcome app creator Angela Jackson to the show. Listen in! »

Rant:

  • People have pitch problems. If you're sending a pitch, via email or otherwise, to media outlets or colleagues or sponsors or venture capitalists or customers or clients or anyone, really, to have them do something about it -- publish you, partner with you, pay you money -- you need to do a better job. Jill's been getting WAY too many poor pitches and while there's no one right way to do it, there are thousands of wrong ways to do it. Tune in to hear what's going wrong.
