Accounting for Photographers

Chad says... To say I'm not a numbers person is an understatement. Numbers are my Kryptonite. And yet, LessAccounting makes it so simple, not only do I keep up with my billing, expenses and mileage, I actually enjoy doing it. If numbers are my Kryptonite, LessAccounting is the sun that gives me my super powers. Without it, I'd be lost and my business would sink under the weight of bad accounting.
