On this episode of the podcast I chat with Los Angeles DJ Courtney Ibarra, better known as DJ Dazzler about her business and how she leaned into the business owner title.

When we don't account for our money, we have no idea how much we have. When it comes to bookkeeping and setting up a business bank account, we get a better understanding of our business and if we are truly makin money and being profitable.
The subject of money can be scary and unattractive to people. The goal is to make it clear and accessible and for everyone to feel comfortable talking about finances, back taxes, and our relationship with money. It's okay to start over in your established business when it comes to unf*cking your biz.
Having been in business for a decade, DJ Dazzler knew she had financial and legal aspects of her business she needed to improve. All of it at once can seem overwhelming, especially when you're trying to organize everything at tax filing time.
Courtney noticed it was easier to take small steps. Every Friday she has started doing Finance Fridays where she revisits her receipts from the week to log her expenses based on the receipts that she organizes as business or personal in a file folder by category each time she shops.
