Episode 99 - Smart Small Business Bookkeeping
Bookkeeper Allena Steele shares her best tips for creative entrepreneurs to organize their finances and stay on the path of financial success.
You probably didn’t get into paper flowers for the money.
We certainly didn’t. But unfortunately, you can’t pay bills with creative spirit alone. So how can you set up your small business to make money?
It starts with smart bookkeeping.
In our latest episode of Paper Talk we chatted with Allena Steele of Steele Bookkeeping. She helps a wide range of entrepreneurs organize their finances and stay on the path of financial success.
We talked about the struggle of creative business owners to do just that. As Allena said: “So many people love what they do, which is the first ingredient to successful business, that they don’t really think about the money or organization part until they’re into it.”
Whether you’re beginning your paper flower journey, or if you’ve been making money as a paper florist for years, you’ll benefit from Allena’s advice on navigating taxes and bank fees, which software to use, and much more.
To get you started, here are three basic things she recommended on the podcast that all small business owners should be doing.
Love this show. I particularly liked the interview with Martha Lucia Tokos. As a professional artist, I recognize how important it is to make connections with your local community. I’m looking forward to more episodes!!
