If you're struggling with whether you need a bookkeeper, accountant, or lawyer - or how to decide who to work with - this is for you!
As an independent podcast editor, whether you're running an agency, working with a small team, or a freelancer, a few things will need outside support. Normally, we might think of needing administrative support (like a virtual assistant), and that's often true. But there are some other service providers you might want to consider.
Professional service providers like bookkeepers, attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and more.
Of course, that can be easy to say and a little of a difficult pill to swallow when determining who you want to work with. Not only do you need to make sure you're finding someone who's competent, but also someone you're comfortable working with... and can afford.
In this episode Stephanie Spires of Spires Strategies (Jennifer's business coach) about what we should look for, where we can look, and what we should consider before deciding to work with (or to NOT work with) someone.
