Do you have someone else in your life with whom you share regular financial tasks such as a spouse or an assistant? Recently it occurred to me that I am not really comfortable with online bill paying because my husband does that job. I detest paying bills and he does not so when we did the chore splitting he took this one. While this is embarrassing to admit I needed to go online and pay some bills when he was out of town and I was lost even though it is a simple job. I realized then the importance of cross training tasks even in the smallest of offices. Even though I had known to get the details of how to pay bills online “just in case” listening or seeing how to do something is quite different from actually doing it. I decided to pay bills online for the month to become fluent with this responsibility. What financial tasks would you be uncomfortable completing if you suddenly had to do them? Make a list and do them next time they need to be done.
