If you’re a creative entrepreneur who wants to better understand and manage your finances, this episode is for you.
The creative brain often struggles with systemized tasks like accounting. As a creative, I’ve learned that numbers don’t have to be dry and boring – you can infuse your creativity into your financial strategy.
Today we’re talking to Jessica Blasingame, a CPA who specializes in financial services for creative entrepreneurs, about managing your numbers using a holistic approach.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
Jessica founded Beam Financial Group after working a corporate accounting gig that eventually took a toll on her health. She initially left accounting altogether and worked as a certified health coach and yoga teacher. She came full circle when her clients started asking her about their business finances. She decided to pivot her business back to accounting and bookkeeping. This time, exclusively helping creative service providers with a holistic approach.

“I think it's important for business owners to take baby steps to start getting some systems in place – or a financial process in place – that works for them. So that they're starting to understand the numbers behind their business.”
“There is freedom in the structure.”
“When you have the systems and processes in place or the tools in place, you feel empowered, and you know what you're looking at. That opens up limitless creativity.”
“You need to see your profit [...] you have to know how much your business is making before you know how much you can distribute to yourself.”
