Ask SCORE
          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.
