#59 The Keeper of the Books & The Power of Knowing Your Numbers


It's tax season!

A reality check of how your business did last year.   In crystal clear black and white numbers. 

But here's the deal, your taxes give a you a picture of what happened.  

I want you to know what is going on right now in your business, so that you can make your business boom!💥

Welcome back to another episode of ITNG .

So let me ask you, do you know your numbers?

Your black and white real numbers so that you can make your business boom?💥

One of the first people I tell my clients to hire is a bookkeeper.  Many entrepreneurs don't care to keep tabs on their numbers or understand it. But when you don't know or understand your true numbers, the nitty gritty of what's profitable in your business, what's sucking the life out of your business (with no cash your business is dead) and where your money is going, your business is running you. 

And around here, I want YOU to run your business, like the Rebel Woman🤘🏼 you are!

Introducing our first male guest on the podcast, Chris Kocina. 

Chris is a bookkeeper in my area, and is not your typical pocket protector numbers guy.  Think skateboarder, guitar playing rockster who happens to love helping people understand their numbers. 

(If you missed last weeks episode, please listen as I set up how I use a bookkeeper in my biz.)😉
