One of the most challenging struggles for most entrepreneurs is bookkeeping. We all have good intentions to keep great books when we start. However, it does not always pan out that way because entrepreneurs wear so many different hats. Recently, I read a blog post from Shanice Brim "Jay Z Teaches Us to Always Keep Receipts.
Performance Artist, Marina Abramovic's publicly announced to Spike News Quarterly saying that she felt “completely used” by him as she agreed to be in the video if he donated to an institute she’s building in Hudson, NY. She could have changed people views about Jay Z, by publicly making that announcement.
However, "Jay Z’s art dealer, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, who also produced the video, called artnet News and read aloud the receipt of Jay Z’s payment… including the receipt number (It’s W984804, btw)." Because Jay Z was meticulous and keep up with his receipts he was able to prove that he honored his side of the agreement. Now, I know we don't all have Jay Z's money, but we do have access to great tools that can assist us.
