    The saying goes, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” As a studio owner, you want to identify the right WHO to manage your business books. Finding someone to whom you can entrust your studio’s finances is much like finding a nanny to care for your children – after all, your business is your baby.

    First, you’ll learn how to find prospects, and no, it’s not your Aunt Agatha’s cousin twice-removed. And once you’ve found some likely prospects, you’ll learn how to pick out the best choice. You’re not looking for a new best friend; you’re looking for an astute, professional businessperson. Afterwards, you won’t be an accountant, but you’ll know how to choose one – and maybe even play one on TV!

    We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
