About the author

Publisher, Editor and Author

Kathy worked with the Bureau of Land Management for 12 years before founding Livestock for Landscapes in 2004. Her twelve years at the agency allowed her to pursue her goal of helping communities find ways to live profitably AND sustainably in their environment. She has been researching and working with livestock as a land management tool for over a decade. When she's not helping farmers, ranchers and land managers on-site, she writes articles, and books, and edits videos to help others turn their livestock into landscape managers.

    I use GNUCash, it is free and open source software. It is available for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems and I find that the support is good, although I can usually figure out my problems.

    Banktivity on the Mac is a good alternative to Quicken with far better support (I’ve used both) and less expensive. It provides all the same linkages to banks and brokerage firms that Quicken on Windows does and is vastly superior to Quicken on the Mac. If you take credit card payments you can get a lot of the reporting, inventory and even payroll and tax management that QuickBooks provides by using Square whose fees are very reasonable. Much of the reporting is free with Square. Some features do have monthly subscription fees but for small businesses with only a few employees you probably don’t need those additions and can get by with just the standard Square implementation.
