How Mauitime Saved $15,000 A Year Using Cheqbook
If you’re a business owner that’s ever been stressed out about money, then this is for you.
I’m going to show you how I saved $15,000 a year by using Cheqbook.
I love entrepreneurs.
I work with tons of business through Mauitime and teaching online business tools and social media through UHMaui ViTec, MauiSMUG, and the Maui Chamber of Commerce.
And if there’s one thing that most entrepreneurs hate, it’s accounting.
Normally it’s complicated, time consuming, and distracts you from working on what really matters.
But accounting is one of those necessary evils of running a business.
And, if it’s done right it can be the difference between being in business for decades or being on the brink of bankruptcy.
Your business doesn’t have to fail because you were too busy to keep clean books.
Back in the day Mauitime used Quickbooks.
We had to buy a desktop PC and hire a part time employee just to make sense of it.
And while Judy was a super smart bookkeeper, but she spent most of her day doing tedious data entry.
Day after day going through piles of receipts and typing everything in one by one.
She hated her job and eventually quit.
Nobody blamed her… Who would want that awful job?!
This created a huge problem, however…
We had no idea how to use Quickbooks so we were completely lost without her.
But it gets worse.
Right after she left…
The PC running Quickbooks completely died.
We lost EVERYTHING.
All of our accounting data was lost.
Running a newspaper has a ton of operating costs and we have to sell a certain amount of ads to stay alive.
But for the next few weeks it felt like we were driving blindfolded.
For all we knew, we were bleeding money and about to go out of business.
This was when we switched to Cheqbook.
I had already been working with Doug (the CEO) for a few months on Cheqbook and the timing couldn’t have been better.
At the time Cheqbook was in beta so we signed up, connected it to our bank, and it downloaded everything and started working it’s magic.
Within minutes we had gotten our data back and we were back to business as usual in a few days.
Honestly, we would have been screwed if Cheqbook wasn’t there to help us pick up the pieces.
But Cheqbook didn’t just help us get back on our feet…
Before I never looked at Quickbooks because it was this mess of cryptic data that took a full time employee to decipher.
Not to mention days of work to properly prepare and financial reports.
All it did was stress me out.
I actually like looking at my accounting.
I’m getting information I can actually understand and use to help me run my business.
Not only does accounting not cause me stress anymore, it’s actually empowering.
I’ve used it to keep track of expenses and save tons of cash by identifying things we were over spending on.
In fact we were able to save $15,000 by identifying hundreds of little things we were overspending on.

And now our new bookkeeper Sarah can spend time on ways to help my company rather than wasting time ‘feeding the quickbooks machine’.
It’s crazy to think how much money we would have saved if we had Cheqbook 15 year ago…
Accounting doesn’t have to suck.
Cheqbook is super easy to understand, helps you save money, and barely takes any time to use.
If you don’t want to take my word for it, hundreds of other people are already using Cheqbook.
Here’s what a few of them have to say:
Normally, other overly-complicated accounting tools cost around $250 and up.
Cheqbook’s most-popular plan is only $20 month (with a 30-day free trial).
This plan automatically gets transactions from your bank and auto categorizes everything.
I’d like to personally invite you to try Cheqbook for free for 90 days.
This offer’s only good for this week though so even if you’re not sure now, grab your free account now (no credit card required to sign up) and check it out.
You can even just use the demo company data to poke around and see how the system works.
