    Episode 14: Bookkeeping for Freelancers

    My guest is bookkeeper extraordinaire Katherine Pomerantz. When you own your own business you are not only the CEO but you're also the HR department, the accounting department, the mail room, the office manager. It's time to outsource and ask for help when you need it. The books - meaning the record that tracks inflows and outflows of your business are the heart of the matter.  If categorizing transactions and spreadsheets don't excite you, it's time to hire help!

Must Listen

Everyone who doesn't work in finance and wants to upskill their finances should listen to this, especially if you have a higher need for cognition and aren't satisfied with people telling you just "the way things are." For example, you may know you have a credit score, but do you know the history? Do you know you actually have multiple credit scores?

Ally-Jane is fantastic in helping you navigate the waters, especially in a field where it can often be bro-dominated, involve lots of yelling, and people who often seem more interested in showing how smart they are as opposed to helping you learn.

Even with information I already knew, AJ helped me make deeper connections that were perspective-shifting. I want her to hold my hand for the rest my life, like the finance-mother goose I never had.

Love this podcast

This podcast has been so helpful for me! It has really gotten me excited to learn more about personal finance, and has also helped me learn how to actually apply concepts and ideas that I had always heard about but had no idea what they actually meant into my life. Awesome podcast.
