I remind my own clients how important it is to be consistent (whether it’s blogging, social media, client interaction, etc.), and I have over 100 posts […]

In continuing my “The Independent Creative” series (a series about my journey of becoming my own boss), I knew I’d have to address the not-always-exciting topic of accounting.
