Unashamedly Creative

Celebrating this here freelance and business life

Originally, this show was going to be called "unashamedly hacking through the business jungle" on account it mixed together my three (yes 3) business endeavours- Unashamedly Creative, Hacking Happiness and the Freelance Jungle. But it suddenly dawned that it sounded like a D grade reality TV about coders forced to live in the wilds of the Queensland Hinterland and get naked with their laptops. Not really sure anyone wants to see that. This is your show to tune into tips on how to crack the freelance and business matrix and not lose your mind to stress in the process. It may also contain traces of my frustration as a working freelancer in Australia. As well as multiple ideas that I should probably have kept to myself but have chosen to air. Here's hoping some of this is useful.

A small squeal of excitement echoed through the Freelance Jungle recently. It was when Bek realised she finally had an accountant ready to step up and give hungry freelance minds a taste of financial advice. 

Now, we'll be able to ask some questions, get some resources and unravel a few financial mysteries in this here Freelance Jungle in a special virtual event! 

We'll be looking at common questions such as:  
1) EOFY, BAS and the ATO (and other scary sounding acronyms)  
2) The benefits of having an accountant or bookkeeper by your side  
3) Ways to save and get yourself organised for thing such as credit lines and home loans 
4) Avenues you can investigate to make your finances and financial advisors work better for you 
5) Common mistakes made by freelancers in our BAS and how to avoid them 
6) How to survive the knee knocking moments like a bigger than expected tax debt, audit and more 
7) How to work out things like profit & loss and start reinvesting in your business the smart way
