But i know nothing about keeping records, filing taxes, and in general everything it takes to run a home business. I read somewhere you should have a seperate checking account for your business, and a seperate debit card. i am just a little overwelmed since i don't know about any of this. can someone help me to understand all this? thanks.

Hi Caryln,
I'd be happy to help you with that. I do not have separate accounts for my Watkins business. I just keep it separate by paper - a file that has all my expenses and income. Also, you don't have to worry about sales taxes as Watkins takes care of that for you. Again, I can go over all that with you.

Feel free to PM me (and/or click on my sig line below). Keep me posted and know I'm here for you! :)

I am having a hard time figuring out how to pm you. That is good i don't need a seperate account. So i would have to keep track of expenses and income. expenses would be like gas, and supplies i would use to run a business? and income would be what exactly? also, you said the company takes care of taxes. but at the end of the year what exactly would i need to take to a tax person? Sorry i am asking alot of questions. but i want to know about this before i join. thanks so much.
