In 2011, Ms. Shelly Herbst was accepted into the SBA‘s E200 Program. During this time, SCORE volunteer, Vic Berniclau, came to one of our sessions to discuss financial matters.

He was an excellent speaker and clearly understood financing. As such, Ms. Herbst scheduled a meeting with him to conduct a general review Marron’s financial reports as

well as to specifically discuss the pros and cons of using the accrual method for Marron’s financial reports.  After review of Marron’s financial statements, Mr. Berniclau verified that Marron’s financial administrator was doing a great job, that our financial affairs were in order.  A discussion was also held regarding the accrual vs. cash method

for reporting.

          After several years of doing management consulting for a large firm, I’m planning to pursue a career as a freelance management consultant. I’m good at what I do, but could use some advice on how to go about finding clients. 

          When you start a career as a freelance consultant, you begin a journey that will be as challenging and rewarding as anything you’ve ever done. Though the possibilities of what you’ll do and how far you’ll go are endless, there are some things you can count on—namely the constant pursuit for new work.

          My beauty supply business has grown significantly in the short time we’ve been in 
business and I’m considering hiring an accountant. How do I find the right one?

          There are many responsibilities that come with being a small business owner, and everyone is critical to maintaining profitability and promoting growth. You can’t risk letting a deadline slip or overlook an administrative requirement, yet there are only so many hours in the
day to get things done.
