I find guests for this podcast in a myriad of ways . Today's guest was recomended by a podcast listener and longtime internet friend. Our cozy conversation in her Manhattan apartment on a cold Friday night exceeded my expectations and meandered all over.

You guys know what time of year it is. Tax time. Not my favorite things to do. Which is why I love Freshbooks.  Of all the things I've tried out there I've found that using Freshbooks is the simplest way to be more productive and organized with business accounting and finances.  Plus, they have tons of new features they've recently added to the software and customer support is always available and friendly when I need it.  Getting started with Freshbooks is extremely simple, even if you’re not a numbers person... actually especially​ if you’re not a numbers person. Remember guys: keeping on top of finances creates more room for abundance!
