I have handled a lot of money.

July 18th, 2007 at 02:26 pm

I realize that I have handled a lot of money in my lifetime. Not my money, but money belong to others. We have built about 75 homes over the past 23 years, most of them custom homes belonging to others.
I always ask for draws and pay all of the bills myself. That is a lot of paper checks, I have written in the past 23 years.
I estimate that I have handled about 15 million dollars and have accounted for every penny of it. Good thing I love bookkeeping cause I sure am not getting paid for it.

    Ima: That was me for many years until I finally had my husband to list me as a bookkeeper and I am self-employed. By doing that I'm building up my social security, disability, and medicare benefits. Plus, I, like you do all the paper work, depositing of the checks, and anything that needs to be done. I have my own IRA.

    A book that I think that you might enjoy would be Joe Dominguez's book called YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE. One of the exercies is for you to go back and list all of the money you have made in your lifetime including any babysitting jobs that you had as a teen. I really enjoyed the book and are using some of his principles.
