Managing Our Financials Successfully with Wave Accounting

The books! Everyone knows “the key to running a successful business is to manage your expenses”. Otherwise, you can lose money without even knowing it, even if your business is “makes money”. It’s tough when you start out with no budget. It’s true you have to spend money to manage and make your money, but this is not always the case.

When I was approached by Panthong to partner with him and help him run Triple M Designz Productions, I was a little reluctant to take on the responsibility of handling all the financials. It wasn’t because I couldn’t. The question for me was “which accounting software are we going to use?” This was the first question that came to mind because I knew “the key to running a successful business is to manage your expenses”. I have a lot of experience with different types of accounting software from complex ERP’s to simple QuickBooks, but they all cost money. Remember, my starting budget = $0.00. I knew that I DID NOT want to keep our financial on a spreadsheet, even though I’m pretty proficient in Excel. Yes, it can be done and a lot of small businesses do it, but it’s not efficient. Why reinvent the wheel, right?

Eventually, I found Wave Accounting, it’s FREE and the user interface is so simple and very intuitive. For all the accounting pros and amateurs alike, it has your accounting basics: income, expenses, income statements, balances sheets, customized invoices, journal entries, etc. You can also link your personal accounting and manage it at the same time (although, I don’t recommend it, nor does your accountant). If you get stuck or have any questions, their tech support answers right away and you can usually find answers to your questions on forums and blogs. We’ve been using Wave Accounting from the beginning and it has worked great for us. We’ve recommended it to some of our peers and they have also been very happy with the program. Since it’s free, I wanted to share with everyone. Give it a try. If you need accounting software to run you business finances, I highly recommend it. It’s free.

San Diego Asian Film Festival 2012

13th San Diego Asian Film Festival, November 1-9, 2012

Yes, it is just around the corner, The San Diego Asian Film Festival (SDAFF). It’s one of the largest media arts organization in North America that focuses entirely on Asian American and Asian International cinema. This annual event is held all around San Diego, and this year is primarily screening films at the UltraStar Mission Valley. The festival itself is an event where anyone can gather to learn, appreciate, and experience the different facets of Asian cinema.

Asian cinema alone has many genres within it, so you’re not limited to seeing one kind of film. At Triple M Designz Productions we love them all, but two of our favorites (which happen to be polar opposites of one another) are romantic comedies and horror! Much of American horror is based off of Asian horror films. To name two, The Ring, The Grudge, were “re-invented” from Asian films with the same titles. Even the extremely popular The Hunger Games bore many similarities to the cult classic Battle Royal, but this little tidbit is another topic all together (not gonna go there).

Don’t forget, SDAFF is a film competition. This event gives individuals and small production companies like us a chance to get our work out to the public to be judged and hopefully win some recognition. Rules are, all films and videos entered into the competition must be directed, produced, or principally acted by an artist of Asian or Pacific Islander descent or whose subject matter relates to Asian or Pacific Islander culture. We are definitely eligible to complete! Unfortunately, we won’t be participating in this year’s competition, however we do have a couple of projects in the works and will possibly be ready by next year. Stay tuned for that!
