Hey there! Lydia here. Welcome back to our She Knows Her Numbers Blog series!
This year, I really want to dive into understanding your numbers. I thought the best way to show you this is to give you examples of real women business owners who are taking imperfect steps to know and understand their numbers.
This week, I’ll be featuring RuthAnn with R Artspace!
I’m a brand and website designer and I help ambitious entrepreneurs create a professional online presence so they can attract ideal clients with ease.
What accounting system do you use?
Do you consider yourself a natural numbers girl?
While I’m definitely right brain, I do love numbers.
What are you doing to become more comfortable with your numbers?
I ask my bookkeeping friend when I need help with little things, but I’m pretty comfortable with my numbers.
How often are you checking your numbers?
Have you outsourced this? Give your bookkeeper a shout out!
I haven’t cause I enjoy this part in my business.
What’s your best advice for someone just starting out in regard to their money?
Know what’s going in and going out. If you turn a blind eye it can get out of control.
What’s your Starbucks order? (Just for fun!)
Hot chai latte, or right now in the fall season, Pumpkin Spice Latte.
What report is most helpful for you to look at?
How do you stay organized?
I use Google Drive to keep all my files organized and that includes some aspects of my bookkeeping.
How do you make looking at your numbers more fun?
I already enjoy it, so it IS fun!
