Hello and Welcome to the April issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!
April is the month that typically is known for showers of rain in anticipation of the budding blooms of flowers we can expect in May and beyond. In too many cases entrepreneurs and people thinking of starting a business find that they ONLY experience the rain and pain of putting in the effort - but never see the blossoming of their business. They just wind up all wet!
What often holds these businesses back is that they are all actions and tactics without a strategy or a system. Just like when we teach students about studying, we need to explain the importance of strategy to them and tell them to avoid trying to retain information in a haphazard way.

ONW (OKAYNOWWHAT) INSIGHTS
After over 30 years working in corporate training, sales enablement, management and having worn the hats of; corporate employee, entrepreneur, author, academic, keynote speaker, and youth sports coach and mentor, I am now adding to my roster of jobs - business coach. While I still maintain the original businesses (www.zahnconsulting.com and www.workshop360.biz), I am now adding www.okaynowwhat.biz. It is through this new offering that I will assist new entrepreneurs, those considering becoming entrepreneurs, and business professionals who want to rekindle the spark they once had for the work they do - but have lost their passion over time.
I want to be of service - it is through that effort that the greatest rewards can be found and shared with others. Having seen and experienced much in my career from many different sides of business relationships, I want to share it with others and provide the learning to help others accomplish their goals.
Together, we CAN achieve great things. Working collaboratively and meeting each challenge as it arises and overcoming it until we feel completely confident in your ability to do so without guidance. Working with your own private cheering section to lift you up when you stumble and provide you with guardrails and a metaphorical safety harness when trying new things to expand your reach and capability.

Given that is "tax season" here in the United States, many of us are making the decision to do it ourselves vs. hiring an expert (CPA or tax preparer) to handle that task. For many of us, the idea of handling finances, expenses, reporting requirements to various governmental agencies, etc. is a daunting task. In fact, it need not be as large a hurdle to doing business as it once may have been. There are numerous software programs that can guide you through the process and essentially "hold your hand" through the [process to ensure it is done efficiently, accurately, and is able to become just a small task to maintain. One such software is Freebooks. This software helps you track everything from project work, time-tracking, expenses, revenue, tax preparation, reporting, etc. It also integrates with many popular software applications you may already be using (Gmail, Slack, MailChimp, Zapier, Microsoft Outlook, Indeed, etc.).
Being scared or wary of managing the accounting side of running your business is a thing of the past. It is now easy to maintain control of your business and keep your focus where you want it to be - on serving your customers, building new products and services, and generating revenue and profit.
