Hi! I'm Tom Negrino and I would like to welcome you to Quicken 2009 for Windows Essential Training. I have written more than three dozen computer training books and seven of those were about Quicken for both Windows and Mac. I have also been writing about personal finance software for different computer magazines since the early 90s. I'm excited about teaching you Quicken 2009, because I believe that getting your finances under control is one of the most important things you will ever do. I say that because Quicken literally changed my life. When I first tried at using Quicken more than 15 years ago, my financial life was a mess.
I was living from paycheck to paycheck and I never seemed to know where my money was going. I realized that I was tired of feeling like my finances were out of control, so I bought a copy of Quicken. I started using it to figure out where I was going wrong with handling my money. Today, I always know my current fiscal situation. I'm not rich, but I don't stress about money any more and I'm following my plan for retirement. So to me, the main reason I get your finances organized with Quicken is to set you free of worry about money. Quicken makes managing your money easier and faster, so you have more time to do the things that you really want to be doing.
I can help you balance your checkbook too. There are several versions of Quicken available. In this training, we will be covering Quicken Deluxe through Quicken Home & Business. With Quicken Deluxe you can manage your checking, savings, credit card accounts and your investments. It's the right version for most people. If you have a home business or if you are self-employed, you want Quicken Home & Business, because it handles your personal accounts and has the ability to do invoicing and track business related expenses. So what are we waiting for? Let's get started.
