BUSINESS TIP: From one of our Roundtable Leaders of the Finance Table, Galia Gichon of Down To Earth Finance: "To save money on bookkeeping, pick one day of the week to catch up on your books. Using QuickBooks Online and syncing your bank and credit card accounts will save you hours of time when entering your expenses. Hiring a bookkeeper is equally important, and by modernizing your systems, you'll save money on their time spent as well."
