Are you a freelancer or small business owner in the USA? Then listen up!
I was recently contacted by James Northard, a long time follower of Just Creative, who let me know about his wife’s awesome new course focused on teaching freelancers & small business owners – such as designers, photographers and bloggers – about finance and running a small business. Basically, how to become your own CFO (Creative Financial Officer), which is exactly what their course is called.
As a designer with a small business, this really struck a chord with me because I literally had no bloody idea how to do all of this when I started my own business (and still don’t really). They don’t teach taxes & bookkeeping in design school, or any school for that matter so once James shared the course outline with me, I immediately had to share it.
The goal for their program is to provide entrepreneurs and small business owners with confidence and peace of mind with their business structure, bookkeeping, and taxes. A boring subject I know, but this really is the foundation of any business.
The Be Your Own CFO program, written by Amy Northard, a Certified Public Accountant, includes lifetime access to a membership site which includes short videos and beautiful, downloadable guides that will walk you through the main topics in each lesson, with 5 core lessons in total.
Detailed information and costs are available on their website, so go check it out. The full course launches on July 15th, and the first lesson will be available for free when you sign up for the webinar. See below for that.
