A budget is a money habit. Create a Money Lifestyle Plan that supports your habit. http://hubs.ly/y0Lwl10
There are 9 steps to having a financially successful business and sales is just one of them. Kind of makes you wonder what the other 8 are right?

I like the points this article makes and I do work to use them in my conversations. I will add though that sometimes, no matter your best efforts, some people just have their own agenda or are playing from a place of deep insecurity that will never allow you to truly resolve an issue. The trick is learning to recognize when it's something you cannot change and make your peace with it. The only thing you can control is your own feelings and how you choose to react.
 
Keep important conversations from turning into fights.
Difficult conversations--whether with friends, family, or spouses--are hard enough without one wrong step turning them into a full-blown fight. Here are four ways to ensure you keep them productive and not explosive.

G+ said be the first to share something so I thought I would! :)

I've been providing virtual bookkeeping services for almost 5 years already. Wow time flies!

What do you find as your biggest challenge in your freelance practice?

Hi Stacy,

I have several "issues".  My first is finding clients that will trust enough to allow a virtual accountant to provide them service.  Once past that hurdle, my biggest issue (maybe frustrating would be a better word) is to actually have the client look at the financial documents and use them as a tool to help them run their business.
