Awkward question: how are your finances?
I don’t mean to get personal here….But do you know if your business is actually making money?
If you don’t – first of all IT’S OK. (Because full disclosure I haaaate finances and for a while I didn’t.)
But second – Today’s podcast episode with my personal accountant is a MUST.
Danielle Hayden’s team at Kickstart Accounting has honestly been a godsend. They love supporting entrepreneurs like you to make the finance process less scary.
And side note – You’ll need more than a CPA to handle taxes every year if you want to hit big time revenue goals. Just saying.
We cover why you need more than a CPA, how to pay yourself, and how to track key metrics moving the needle in your business.
So when I say you’ll want to grab a pen and paper I seriously mean it. This episode’s a juicy one!
