Track + Tackle Biz Money, Book Keeping + Taxes like a Pro, finally.

Creative Entrepreneurship, DIY + Education, Empowerment

handmade shop taxes + book keeping | the merriweather council blogI have a saucy post about marketing examples learned from the TV show “Last Man Standing” that I think you all will love, but I wanted to share this post tonight instead because of it’s time sensitive nature.

Once upon a time, I did the best thing I ever could’ve done for myself and my business and got an accountant. This was life changing. You might need this too… more than you realized.

Because this made me feel so much more secure in my business – having FINALLY understood how money comes in and goes out and what’s deductible, I wanted to pass this along because it fits quite well with my goal of Empowering you to share you work with confidence. Trust me this is a huge confidence boost to finally understand this money stuff.

My accountant has now developed a course for creative business owners who want to better understand taxes and book keeping and the like and get sustainable systems in place to make it all work. I know how frustrating it is to feel so disconnected from your finances and feel super overwhelmed by all the things you don’t know…. even worse, all the things you don’t know you don’t know. You know?

Amy’s course, Be Your Own CFO, is on sale until midnight tonight, it’s $197 now but will increase to $397 tomorrow!

$197 gets you lifetime access to 5 lessons, Amy, and her community… You can get clllllll the details right here.

Be Your Own CFO

I’m sorry this post is brief but this is one of the most important and best things you can do for your business – at any stage. Establishing a money tracking system will make your life easier at tax time but will also inform you about your business in ways you probably hadn’t considered or noticed yet. Also, understanding tax deductions…. priceless. Seriously, this is one of the best investments you can make this year.
