QuickBooks Tip: Categorizing Personal Expenses

If you’re a small business owner, often times accounting or bookkeeping isn’t always your area of expertise. As such, tracking all the money coming in and out of the business can get tricky.  One common question is how do you categorize personal expenses in QuickBooks?
