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.

How I can help you

Art’s business career focused on engineering, safety, risk management, and training in petrochemical products operations for Exxon, Allied Chemical, and Union Texas (became ARCO, then BP) in New Jersey and Houston.  His areas of operational experience ranged from project management, strategic and business planning, petrochemical manufacturing, transportation, and storage. Art was the national chairman of the American Petroleum Institute’s Training and Development Committee, earning their highest recognition award for service to the petroleum industry. After an early retirement from industry, he reinvented himself as a creator of unique three-dimensional wall sculptures, a small business he operates out of his home (www.artferber.com). His photographs have won several awards and he enjoys teaching Photoshop to individuals.

He served on the board of the San Diego Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers. He is a Dale Carnegie Instructor and has been teaching their Leadership Training for Managers seminar for over 25 years. Art has concluded that the core of good leadership and management hasn’t changed over the years.  He believes that coaching and mentoring is the art of assisting self-discovery.
