I've been entrepreneurial from a young age. Growing up on a farm in Minnesota there was lots of work. From a very young age my parents would pay us for working in the fields in the summer. However, we had to track our own hours. If we didn't track our time in writing and submit it weekly, we weren't getting paid. At a young age, my freelancer's finance training began.
Now with 30+ years of business management, accounting and coaching experience, I am able to listen to the needs of the starting freelancer and offer systems and processes to enable the creativity and productivity to flow. I will teach you how to track it, submit it and get paid.
Reading and going to cars & coffee with my son are two favorite ways to relax.
In 2001, a number of friends were launching freelance careers. Each needed business management and accounting start-up help. Coffee and dinner conversations launched my own freelance career putting structure to the accounting process and freeing up time for the solo and entrepreneurs to do what they love!
In the beginning of my freelance career I set up systems and served as full service accounting department for the growing freelancers businesses.
Now, I am taking what I've learned and teaching YOU to get started on your own journey. Technology is allowing for more DIY, even with finances. In teaching you the skills you need to get started you will always have a handle on your finances and can grow that aspect of your business along with your product or service.
My mission is simple...To teach you make the most of your freelance career by paying attention to your finances:
Step 1. Know the differences between W-2 employee and 1099 freelancer.
Step 2. Set up the basic systems for your freelance world. I will show you how.
Step 3. Tracking your income and expenses, and knowing what is tax deductible.
Step 4....and all along the way provide coaching and consulting when questions arise.
Eventually you will grow and be able to hand this off to a bookkeeper or accountant. Until then remember you will pay fewer taxes by paying attention. Start early.
