I do not use third party tool to keep my business in check. The only tools I use is my business records. I make sure that my accounting and bookkeeping records are updated from time to time and I check for any anomalies on time to make amendment.

Yes I totally agree that pen and paper plus a good account is a way to keep the financial aspect of a business in check especially for those who do not have access to the internet, the good old fashioned way will do.

When it comes to finance, I still go the traditional route of spreadsheets and the use of my paper and pen.
I usually go the same route also,as i normally write down to to do expenses and the revenue that comes in.I used this method of black and white because it is very handy and easy to spot at a glance.

Yeah! For me, nothing beats scribbling on a book what my expenses are although for the sake of accountability, I do use spreadsheets at the end of the day.

I'm not quite acquainted with budget root, but I have heard positive reviews about it. I'm sure a lot of people still do it the old fashioned way, also you can make use of a financial audit company, or better still have an accountant in that business.
Same here just hearing about it, but what I do know is that when we track our spendings it gives us a conscious frame of how things are and how we ant them to be

Indeed when you start to keep track of your spending and expenditures, it allows you to keep a tab on your finance positively, you can cut the excesses and perhaps save the money.

Read about this in a book during the lockdown, the power of habits, I must say I began to track my spendings then like the book said by writing down my purchases, it was really helpful maybe I would take that on back

Definitely, I think it would be great if you can even make it a habit. It helps a lot, I haven't quite grown into it yet, but will probably start someday.

One need to create a personal business website to store all.the business data, and store them in a secured way to avoid any break from intruders or risk losing it cos if unforseen things.
This one is a big business that you can digitalize ,but this is almost impossible in a small business because it will not work for you to digitalize a small business that is growing from the scratch.
