A step-by-step guide for makers & creatives to build your shop’s financial foundation with confidence

You’re starting an online shop! Your creative talent and your entrepreneurial spirit is fueling you. Founding a creative business is so exciting! Kudos to you for striking out on your own and beginning this amazing adventure. The hard part’s over!

As you set up shop, you spiral down the blackhole of Facebook forums and Google “research” and quickly realize that there’s a lot more to operating an Etsy shop than taking photos, writing item descriptions, and figuring out shipping (though that’s plenty on it’s own!). How does sales tax work? And how much money should I save each month for taxes? I don’t have to worry about reporting this until I make a certain amount in sales, right? What’s an LLC and should I be one? I feel like there’s something important I’m missing, but I’m not sure where to look…

Questions about how to get your financial ducks in a row may leave you feeling overwhelmed and anxious faster than you can say “quack”. Why isn’t there just one big checklist out there that tells you what you need to do to get your shop legit so you can do it and then be done with it?

Lucky for you, there’s an easier way. Introducing the Get Legit Toolkit.

Take your 2019 books from blank to complete in tiny, bite-sized steps! 

If you procrastinated on your books this past year – it’s okay! You’re not alone, and I can help you get caught up in tiny steps without the overwhelm.

As a Certified Public Accountant and a maker myself, I’ve got the perfect solution for you if you’re behind on your bookkeeping – the 2019 Bite-Sized Bookkeeping Bootcamp, especially for Etsy sellers. It’s the next best thing to having an accountant there with you helping you log your transactions.

The Bootcamp is designed specifically to help you catch up on your 2019 finances in the least stressful way possible. I’ve broken down everything you need to do to update your books for the entire year in tiny, itty bitty, doable steps that are actually realistic. The Bootcamp also includes the 2019 Etsy Seller Spreadsheet and a special inventory worksheet designed specifically to help you get the year-end tax numbers you need.

The Bootcamp is seasonally available in November – February each year. Sign up by clicking the button below.

Asana for Makers is a quick-win course that teaches you how to better manage your work time in your business – encouraging you to find the balance between working IN and working ON your shop.

In Asana for Makers, I guide you through using a totally free productivity tool called Asana, alongside with a complete mindset shift in how you break down your BIG goals to daily to do’s to help you become immeasurably more efficient in your business. With this system, you will create your own boss for your business to motivate you to work more efficiently, achieve your financial goals, and feel more balanced.

The end result – Imagine logging onto your computer or phone each day and seeing a manageable to do list, knowing exactly what you need to work on to both keep your shop running efficiently and move you a step closer to achieving your goals

The tools in this course are perfect for my fellow scrambled moms, stressed out Etsy-preneurs, and serial project jugglers. I know you have ALL the ideas and goals and responsibilities and THINGS just like me, and I’m ready to give you the tools to handle them with less overwhelm and frazzle.
