Even with 2 rounds of training, not the best software for a soloprenuer

2018-11-13

Probably an excellent tool for accountants, but not the right platform for the creative solo-entrepreneur.

Pros

It's made invoicing a breeze—now, instead of creating an invoice in a design program and attaching it to an email, I can send clients a more professional digital invoice. I can see which invoices are out, and even set up recurring ones.

Cons

My #1 gripe is that the program is glitchy and buggy too often. My #2 gripe is that I did a round of 1:1 training on Quickbooks to get up to speed, still wasn't proficient, took another round, and still feel shaky on using it. At the end of the day, it's a tool for ACCOUNTANTS. Even after nearly 10 one-on-one sessions with a great trainer, the program is hard for someone like me (creative field) to use. If I mess anything up, I don't really understand how to fix it, and have to pay an accountant to take a look. I do wish someone would create a "bookkeeping for creative types" software instead—this is way more than I need in some areas, yet not enough in others. For instance, I can't do progress billing, which would be really helpful. But I can probably do some advanced accounting that I don't even understand how to use. Overall, my gripes are that of probably not choosing the best software for my neds.
