Let's keep the IRS off your back and avoid unexpected big tax bills.
A solid business foundation sets you up for long-term success.
here is where most people get it wrong:
they assume their side hustle will fly under the radar and that they don't need to worry about business stuff until they're making more money
they get so busy creating the product or service they are selling that they put the financial stuff on the back-burner
This generally leads to:
Big unexpected tax bills at the end of the year
A letter from the IRS letting you know what you missed (+ interest)
Overall fear and uncertainty around what is *actually* needed
so where do you start?
Well first, hello I'm Ashley!
I started my business as a side hustle and now have 5 employees serving hundreds of small businesses. It's amazing what can happen if you keep working towards your goals.
I've been an accountant for over 10 years so numbers are kind of my thing. When I started making money on the side, I knew I wanted to do it the right way. I wasn't sure where this business was going to go, but I didn't want anything holding me back!
If you're anything like me, you know how to get sh*t done.
Especially if you have a step-by-step guide to follow. So let's do just that. Let's get you a guide that will help you:
Feel prepared to tackle your finances with ease, knowing exactly what to do next.
Do things like register your business, get an EIN, and plan for taxes like a pro.
Have ultimate clarity and confidence on the foundational pieces of your business.
