Tracking your income and expenses is another aspect of running a studio that can take a lot of time and can run counter to the creative process. I’m a big fan of programs that save time and automate tasks that I would rather not do. In this list, I’ve included a variety of resources at a variety of price points. Please do your homework as each one has its pluses and minuses. I can say that tax time is a lot easier when all you have to do is print out a report!
