Meet Peyton, the creator of this information-packed guide and guru on all things finances when it comes to small businesses!
I’m Peyton! I am a photographer of love + all things lovely. I’m based in Oklahoma City with my husband (who is a videographer!) and two wiener dogs.
I created this guide to help make things easier for the small business creative’s. There is so much information out there in the world and it’s hard to decipher through what actually applies to our little businesses.
I like all my information in one place, so I knew that applying years worth of boring research and discovery into one place would hopefully make so many people’s lives way easier during one of the most stressful times of year – tax season!
The man the myth the legend. Michael Hendricks, the raddest mountain-climbing accountant ever.
Hey, I’m Michael! I’m a CPA but not your average, boring bean counter. I love going rad places like skiing in Chamonix, hiking glaciers in the Suisse Alps, kayaking the French Riviera, or climbing anywhere I can find some rock. Working with entrepreneurs and creatives is such a welcomed change from the typical world of accounting.
I’ve got a master’s degree in accounting and financial economics worked for one of the world’s largest accounting firms and have had my own side hustle working with clients for the past 7-8 years that has turned full time since 2016-ish. I’m stoked to help simplify and organize the numbers side of your business and save you some major $ while we’re at it!
After reading the guide, you actually know how profitable your business is and how much you can spend on doing the fun things you want to do in life!
“If I had not bought this finance guide, I would seriously be lost (and probably owe a lot of money)! Reading through this truly helped me understand how to run the ‘business’ part of my photography business. Before, I was very overwhelmed. Now I have confidence I’m doing things right and have hired an accountant. It definitely pays for itself in no time! If you’re on the fence, or you just don’t know where to start, or if you just can’t keep up with everything then this guide is for you my friend! Thank you, Peyton + Michael, for offering this!”
