Quotes:

01:30 – “I would suggest don’t do [the bookkeeping] yourself. Actually go to your accountant straight away. They know how to be able to set the books out so that you can understand it, they can understand it, the taxman or woman can understand it.” – Kirsty

12:59 – “When you’re getting repeat, frequently asked questions, you definitely want to put that into your listing somewhere (like a bullet point or a product description) that basically says the answer to that question.” - Isaac

05:45 – “Make sure you go through [your books] once a month with a fine-toothed comb. Don’t wait until the end of the year when it’s tax time.” - Kirsty

19:50 – “I know at the start you really want some written reviews but any review is better than no review. And any rating is better than no rating. Even a one-star rating is better than no rating because, in the end, you want to look genuine.” - Isaac
