quickbooks vs mint
« on: July 20, 2018, 11:31:06 AM »
hey guys I hear everyone saying get quickbooks online for small business/side hustle. when they describe it, sounds just like mint which I use for personal tracking of my expenses except its free and doesnt cost $15 a month. Thoughts on if Mint is good enough or are there quickbooks features that will make tracking my taxes, spending, revenue that I'm unaware of?

QuickBooks provides way more small business accounting horsepower than Mint. And it scales.

Mint is more like Quicken.

Full disclosure: I am author of QuickBooks for Dummies so lack at least the appearance of objectivity and independence.

^+1. Yea there not even close to being the same other than keeping track of some things but it ends there. Quickbooks is a good too for small business owners.  We used Quickbooks and I use Mint.
