Starting Up, and Conquering the Numbers - WSJ.com
JUNE 28, 2010 | Wall Street Journal | By COLLEEN DEBAISE.
Many people start a business because they want to support themselves
doing what they love. Too often, though, they neglect to focus on the
numbers side of the business. Creative types, especially, often say
they're turned off by the "unappealing," "complicated" or "just plain
boring" aspect of financial management.

If you want to be successful, you'll need to ramp up your accounting
knowledge. While you can certainly rely on an accountant, bookkeeper, or
trusted employee to provide advice on your company's finances, it's
critical that you gain a comfortable understanding of the numbers.
