Just visited the accountant today to figure out my strategy for self-employment. This was a very good year for us income-wise and so he's suggesting that I buy whatever I'll need to go out on my own before year's end. Among other things, I want to buy personal finance software.

I'll be a solo operation. Do I need QuickBooks? Or should I just stay with Quicken, which I've been using for some time now?

Also, the accountant strongly recommends I incorporate. My wife hates this idea since her father had a hard time dissolving his corporation. She feels we'll somehow be locked in. Is she justified? What are the pros and cons?

Thanks for whatever help you can provide,
