We know — reconciling bank and credit card accounts is probably the unsexiest topic we could have an episode on. 

But, account reconciliation is crucial if you want to scale your business, and so many business owners we see are getting it wrong. Truth be told: it’s preventing them from growing. 

Accurate numbers are essential for understanding your financial picture, and reconciling your bank and credit card accounts every month helps you do just that.
