    Get Your Business In Shape:  Business Advice for Creative Professionals

    What | The life of a creative professional certainly has its rewards: working independently, making your own hours, the freedom to be creative. But it's also fraught with responsibilities most other workers never have to consider: incorporation, business expenses, and being a one-wo/man creator, marketer and proposal writer.

    With a little help, you can get your business in shape and on the right track.

    What | The life of a creative professional certainly has its rewards: working independently, making your own hours, the freedom to be creative. But it's also fraught with responsibilities most other workers never have to consider: incorporation, business expenses, and being a one-wo/man creator, marketer and proposal writer.

    With a little help, you can get your business in shape and on the right track.

    Our workshop is designed with the creative professional in mind. Our CPA, who specializes in work with creatives, will go over the many considerations in an intimate, relaxed setting.

    We will discuss:
    * Setting up your business (what permits you need, bookkeeping)
    * Explained! Sole Proprietor vs. LLC vs. Incorporating
    * Challenges of self-employment (tax burden, regulation, risks and rewards)
    * Mid-term/Long-term goals (personal objectives, client relationships, budgeting)
    * Tax-specific matters (deductions, quarterly tax payments, planning for retirement)

    This event is limited to 25 attendees.

    Our speaker is a Somerville-based certified public accountant and has been in practice for over ten years. Although his clients are involved in a variety of industries, our speaker focuses his practice on the needs of small business owners and particularly enjoys working with his many "creative" clients, who are involved in a variety of artistic disciplines. When he is not providing business advice or preparing income tax returns, our speaker enjoys travel and outdoor adventure with his wife, his two young and rambunctious children, and their family pug.
