If you're a creative, small business owner, you probably wanted to start your own business because you believed in your passion. You probably knew that hard work + your passion and talent would take you far – and you're not wrong. However, many small business owners I've met worry about their accounting and small biz finances. People either think they need to be experts in everything to run a business well, or they fear outsourcing the work to someone who doesn't know what they're doing.
In this episode, I speak with Jonathan Ankney of Your Money and Your Business about small business accounting. There's no reason to fear small business accounting, and in this episode, we'll cover a lot of important topics related to small businesses, bookkeeping, and more.

What We’re Chatting About This Week
Welcome to episode 103 – as many of you know, I have a background in corporate finance and accounting. Typically, big companies (like the one I worked for) have employees to do their financial accounting and analysis because they have the budget. But what do small businesses (like many of you) do when they need some financial accounting or bookkeeping work?
I'm chatting with Jonathan Ankney about this very topic in this episode! If you've ever wondered what small business CFOs (Chief Financial Officers) do, you're in for a fascinating discussion. It's super informative, and if you have questions, email me or leave them in the comments below!
