The Yarny Bookkeeper

WARNING:  This is NOT just another site about how to sell your handmade items!

Did I catch your attention?  Great!  I know I only have seconds to capture and hold you attention before you make the decision that this site isn’t for you.

So, now that I have your attention…….

Hi, I’m Nancy – thanks for stopping by!  As I said, this is NOT another site about how to sell your handmade items – there are tons of those here on the internet and I’m betting that you’ve probably visited a lot of them on your search for information and you are pretty overwhelmed at this point.

What this site IS about – is all the nitty gritty details that go on behind the scenes when you are thinking of starting a business AND then while you are actually running your business – that have absolutely NOTHING to do with selling your finished handmade items.

So, if you are thinking of turning your love of handmade items (and perhaps your current hobby) into a real business and are wondering about things like:

  • How to register your business
  • Determine your initial investment
  • How to price items to regain your start up costs AND make a profit
  • What counts as business related expenses for a handmade business
  • What you need to keep for receipts
  • How long you need to keep business records
  • How the IRS views handmade businesses
  • Things you MUST track to prove you are a professional business
  • Choosing a business structure – Sole Proprietor, DBA, or LLC
  • What Federal, State, and Local Agencies you need to register your business with
  • How to translate all those bookkeeping and accounting terms into simple English
  • And so much more ………

Then you are most definitely in the right place, as these are just a few of the things that I will talk about, write articles about and teach here on the Yarny Bookkeeper.

So, grab your favorite beverage and take a look around.  Be sure to sign up for our newsletter before you go and receive our free welcome gift for becoming a subscriber.

If you don’t immediately see the answer to something your are looking for, drop me a note and tell me what you are looking for – or better yet – take my quick survey.

Happy Handmade!

Nancy
