Marketing Your Financial Business: A Conversation About Sales Tax, Education & Accounting with Tiffany Bastian

Check out this interview we did on the Marketing That Generates podcast where I talk about accounting firm and entrepreneurial journey.

If you want to learn more about what I do and hear some of my marketing wins (and learning lessons), you’ll definitely want to listen to this podcast episode. 

“I suppose education is the key to all of it. It’s teaching people so they understand. When people understand things, I can serve them better because now they know versus just doing what I tell them to do.”  -Tiffany Bastian

What you need to know about the CARES Act

If you’re confused about PPP, EIDL, and Unemployment as part of the Cares Act for small businesses owners like us, you’re not alone. This podcast is everything you need to know about deciding how to proceed from here. In this episode we’re joined by Tiffany Bastian of Bastian Accounting to help us navigate these programs during the pandemic.

I had no idea how much money I was actually making or how much money I would owe come April. I felt like it was the one aspect of my business that I didn’t have a grip on. Crunching numbers felt like this mysterious, intimidating, overwhelming task and I had no idea where to begin. While filing my taxes on my own, I literally entered every business expense by hand into Turbotax and I was like….there has to be a better way. I guess empowered would be the best word. Being able to hire someone to help me get all my ducks in a row with zero judgment of my competency as a business owner was amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing how the steps Tiffany suggested and executed end up saving me money come tax time. I feel like now, I have complete control of my business. I don’t have to wonder how much I’m spending or dread tax time. I mean, I still dread tax time…but not because it feels mysterious anymore! I know that managing my business’ finances is something I’ll do well now that I know how to do it.

We trusted our previous CPA to get us on the right track and after a YEAR of working with him and lots of money lost, NOTHING had been done. It was as if he expected us to know what to do or what certain forms or terms were. Needless to say, we are creatives, not tax professionals so we were stressed and our business was a huge mess! The struggle with taxes and payroll became so overwhelming that it, at times, felt as though running a business may not be right for us. Now that we have Tiffany, a true godsend, we can focus on our client experience and the creative side of our business. She takes care of filing our taxes, processes our payroll, and even manages our QuickBooks so we can focus on the things we’re best at. Tiffany makes sure to gather everything she needs from us and has no problem explaining things in depth when we have no idea what she’s talking about. Working with Bastian Accounting instills so much confidence in our legitimacy as a
business. We feel on top of the world knowing everything is in order! YOU’RE THE FREAKING BEST, TIFFANY. Thank you for taking such a load off of our shoulders. <3

Morgan Archer

“My biggest struggle was making sure that my business expenses and accounts were correct + making sure everything was in line with the state. Since working with Tiffany, so much stress was taken off my shoulders which has given me time to focus on things in my business that I actually like doing! I feel amazing because I know everything is all in place on the back end! TIFFANY IS AMAZING!! I am so glad I found her and I can’t wait to continue working together!

Sarah Carter

“I use to have no idea where my business was truly at financially. I didn’t have a budget in place and didn’t have set financial goals. The word taxes made my toes curl. Now, I’m feeling much more reassured. I don’t want to think about what taxes this past season would have been like had I not found help. This coming year will be a breeze! Having Tiffany empowers me in my business because now, I don’t feel like I’m just winging it.”

Amanda Collete

“I was good about the business in general but anxious about the financial part of it. Maintaining finances, balancing accounts, keeping an eye on income vs profit vs expenses were my biggest struggles. Since working with Tiffany, I am much more at ease. I feel relief that all my numbers are accounted for. I feel like tax season will be SO much easier on me this year. It is a weight lifted off of my shoulders. I am not a numbers person, I don’t like math and I get so lost on all the legalities of taxes that it feels like I have more time to focus on the other aspects of my business now. I feel like I have more freedom! Bastian Accounting is super helpful, fast, and efficient. I didn’t feel lost or confused during the process.”

Jessie Caballero

“Before working with Bastian Accounting, I was just struggling with everything! I just had a general understanding of my financials but not a clear picture of what was coming in and going out. I was a bit lost when it came to knowing where my business strengths and weaknesses were. Now, through working with Tiffany, I am relieved and more in control. I am feeling like I have a much clearer picture of my financials. Tiffany is great! I’ve never had anyone organize me the way she has!”

Heather Bellini

“I came to Bastian Accounting because I was in the process of setting up a new company and I wanted to establish proper accounting practices. Tiffany is such a pleasure to work with. We have not met in person, but I feel like I’ve known her for some time. She’s been amazing! Tiffany is so easy to work with, understood my issues and my business quickly.”

Tim Brookes

“Before working with Tiffany, I was having a really difficult time staying on top of my bookkeeping, and asserting myself with the old accountant. It left me feeling naive. Since working with Bastian Accounting, I now feel excited and safe. Before I was just flying by the seat of my pants. In procrastination mode. Now, I can rest easy and know that my family and business are protected and will be filing correctly with the government. After seeing the Profit and Loss statements — it changed the way I was spending $ and investing in the business. I will be much more cautious with spending moving forward! Before I was just making up my tax stuff. Now I have a plan, accountability, and more coaching available if I need it”

Vanessa Vance

“Before working with Bastian Accounting, I was struggling with taxes, accounting and bookkeeping. Now, I feel like I have all my finances in a place where I can see exactly what is going on with my business”

Matthew Lux

“Before working with Bastian Accounting, I was all over the board for my books. I had an online company doing my books each month, but they didn’t understand what I did. Plus, I wanted someone to work within Dubsado with me. I felt my business was good but I didn’t know my numbers like I should. I wanted to know each month what I did and what I was bringing in per item, etc. Thus, I found Tiffany! Now, I’m feeling better! Now I know someone has my back. The fact that I can email someone at any time and she’s going to work for me, is a great feeling.”

Dana Osborne

“After onboarding with Bastian Accounting, I feel amazing! Outsourcing this was the single best thing I think I have ever done for my business. I can create and serve my clients without the weight of knowing I have tedious tasks on my to-do list. Now they get done for me so I can be a business owner AND still spend time with my family at the end of the day.”
