SIGN OF DIGITAL TIMES
DIGITAL FINANCE IN THE HOME OFFICE
Forget the filing cabinet and toss your stapler. Your home office is going digital.
WHAT IF …
Throw it away or recycle it.
TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT
CHOOSING FINANCIAL SOFTWARE
With just a few clicks, you can see where you're overspending, which investments are under-performing, or determine if it's time to refinance. With the powerful financial software available, it's almost like having a little financial advisor looking over your shoulder.
BACK UP YOUR FILES
However you do your finances in your home office, you should back them up on CD at least once a quarter (once a month is even better).
Note the contents on the CD, including the date, the file format, and anything else that might help you identify the disc later without having to pop it into your computer.
A laser-etched label can give your discs a polished look for eye-grabbing self-promotion, or simply more effective archiving. LightScribe Direct Disc Labeling technology and a specially coated disc enable you to burn professional-looking photo and text labels right onto your CDs and DVDs. Now all your important data files will be instantly identifiable, granting you a new level of convenience and efficiency.
PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY
GUARD AGAINST IDENTITY THEFT
WHAT IF …
A handheld computer can save you from having to enter data into a computer more than once. Handhelds can store contacts, schedules, to-do lists, e-mail, practically anything that their larger counterparts can—but they fit into your pocket or handbag. And by regularly syncing up with your computer, you can update the information anytime and access it from your office, too.
The benefits of moving your finances to digital media far outweigh the risks, and that's not even considering the extra space you'll free up in your office where that extra filing cabinet used to be!
