Being an excellent accountant might not be one of your biggest strengths, especially for those of us who consider ourselves creatives. But if you’re running a business of any sort, you have to at least understand your numbers and not be afraid to look at them! In this week’s episode of the This Week In Weddings podcast, we’re chatting with stationer turned business coach about a few simple steps wedding industry entrepreneurs can take to get more comfortable with their books. With the end of the year quickly approaching, now is a great time to become BFFs with your books.
