Where Did the Money Go?
by Ellen Rohr
Now, you have to understand that I have absolutely no interest in accounting or bookkeeping. In our company, Marianne handles all that stuff. Frankly, it bores me to tears. I read Ellen Rohr's book because she asked me to. I wasn't really looking forward to it. I'd much rather read about pipes and boilers and wooden ships that got stuck in Antarctica at the turn of the century.
But because Ellen is a dear friend and fellow writer at Plumbing & Mechanical magazine, I sat down with the book and a big cup of coffee on a Saturday morning. I prepared myself to trudge though what I was sure would be a tough read for me.
I should have known better.
Ellen immediately grabbed my attention with her wonderful style of storytelling and held it for hours. She made the numbers come to life with tales of people who had made it (and people who had not!). I couldn't put this book down!
I finished it in a couple of hours and came away with a new appreciation for accounting and bookkeeping - and it didn't hurt a bit! This book is about keeping score, and keeping score can be fun. Ellen helped me see that for the first time. Everyone who runs a small business should read this book, and more than once. In fact, I guarantee you'll get you money's worth from Ellen's new book. If you're not completely satisfied, just return it to me within 30 days and I'll give you a full refund. You can't lose!
