SMALL BUSINESS 101:
ACCOUNTING FOR THE NON-ACCOUNTANT


We are the first to admit we love growing a profitable business where we are justly paid what we deserve. But hand and hand with that statement is a near loathing of the financial side of our business. Managing money isn’t for everyone. And sometimes it is best left up to the experts.

That’s why this month we decided to invite our good friend and trusted partner over to Think Creative Collective. Amy Northard, the Accountant for Creatives, shared her expertise to the amazing content this month. Stay on target with your My Biz Finances worksheet, keep track with your Milage and Independent Contractor Tracker. Get the right numbers with the Quarterly Taxes Estimator and the Home Deduction Formula and more. 

You have enough things on your plate. Between juggling sales, marketing, social media and growth strategies your brain is spent. Why spend hours researching all the things you need to know about taxes when we have packaged them up just for you.

After you got your entire year in gear with last month’s content (which you can still access below!) it’s now time to focus in on specific areas. This month we’re tackling social media with an emphasis on Instagram. 

First, learn the basics of Telling Your Instagram Story + Finding Your Voice inside our Instagram Bootcamp replay (available after the live workshop 1/21). Then dive a bit deeper inside the three ebooks “Hashtag Builder Kit”, “Instagram Posting Timer” and “How to Setup and Host Your Next Instagram Giveaway”. 

Next take it a step further by opening up your Social Media Scheduling Bundle. Here you’ll find your Social Media Weekly, Content Calendar and your Social Media Checklist. Use these to get totally organized about what goes when and where. Never miss a beat with these tools.

Finally, organize your entire day with the My Biz Daily. We’ve broken your day down hour-by-hour and action-by-action so you can stay honest and accountable.

GET YOUR BUSINESS IN GEAR FOR 2016


This month we're focusing on some key areas in your business for you to see major changes. It's amazing how starting a new year organized and planned can totally boost your business the entire year. 

First, we've got easy short term and long term goal setting worksheets for you. Use the yearly goal setting first to outline your intentions for the entire year. Then use the business review sheets every month to keep track of your progress and to note room for improvement. 

Next, use the pricing formula worksheet to make sure you'll be able to see a profit this year. Don't forget to factor in mortgage payments and even vacations into your desired income! Use the excel template to keep track of potential income, actual income and mileage (don't miss the how-to video). Then keep those swipe files handy especially if you're raising your prices this year. 

Finally, if you've been wanting to harvest the power a blog can bring your business then our worksheets will help with just that. Use the blog brainstorm to generate ideas and the blog calendar to plan out your month (heck, go for the year!). 

Here's to having a profitable, organized and intentional 2016!
