    Episode #11 - "The Young and The Restless (Groomer) " with Guest Allison Brooks

    Episode #11 - "The Young and The Restless (Groomer) " with Guest Allison Brooks

    Allison Brooks hasn't "done it all". 

    In fact, Allison Brooks has barely been able to legally drink alcohol. Barely 22 years of age, she is working her tail off night and day to make a name for herself in the industry. Within the past 18 months, Allison has graduated from the grooming academy, ventured into her own grooming business, collected almost 5,000 Instagram followers, started her own Youtube channel, placed on a competitive grooming team called "The Loyalty Squad", and won 2nd place in the aptly named "Future of the Industry" behind her Loyalty Squad teammate Emily Landers. 

    The future is bright with this one. Just don't tell her she can't do something because she will find a way... Enjoy the episode!

    Episode #10 - W2 vs 1099 with Accountant Steven Alvarez

    Trying to get as much depth to you all out in the grooming world, I will be holding "mini episodes" with accountant (and my brother) Steven Alvarez on tax questions that you all may have. Whether you are a shop owner, individual groomer, mobile groomer, vendor, or other entity, you will benefit from these episodes answering important tax questions. 

    This first episode is one you may read about countless times on grooming forums in regards to W2 or 1099 employees. Steven goes into detail about the difference of the two, the benefits of both, as well as the drawbacks of both. 

    You can contact Steven for further consulting for your tax questions at alvarez@alvarezcpa.com or by filling out the contact form at www.alvarezcpa.com
