Last year I met with both my Business Advisor and my Accountant in one week. Both recommended that rather than tracking my company’s mileage in my current fashion that I download MileageIQ or any mileage tracking app and use that to track my drives and trips. I explained that I am a granola person and that I do not use my data on my phone and I never have location turned on so this app would not work for me. I occasionally researched apps to download and even tried a few but found that I kept running into the same issues.
I went on about my year and supported small, medium, and large business owners in their success. Every month I would sit down for hours at a time to track where I had been, compile my systems for tracking my mileage and get it all to my office manager to put into excel and send over to my administrative assistant to create the reports. My administrative assistant has been insistent the past few months that my mileage needed to be turned in and it is once again time to sit down and spend hours trying to compile all this data from my calendar, Google Maps, and quite frankly my memory.
They say that doctors make the best patients right?
I write this with a pain of concern that my clients will see that I am not a specimen of perfection and I too fall prey to the business owner pitfalls but there is also good news. I am a real person who also listens to my own advice and eventually when like many of our clients, my situation becomes painful enough, I make a change.
So you won MileageIQ, I succumb to your tactics.
