Chris Morris, CPA for Writers, Freelancers, and Small Businesses, on Why You Should Treat Your Writing Like a Business
I digitally met Chris Morris, a CPA for writers, a few years ago through a mutual friend. In that time, I’ve gone freelance and he launched his own accounting company to help writers, freelancers, and small business owners.
Chris related that he specializes in helping the creative entrepreneurs, regardless of whether the business started yesterday or two decades ago. Over 75% of his clients are entrepreneurs. He helps painters, graphic designers, wedding photographers, editors, authors, and even the neighborhood swimming pool guy. He knows your business is too complex to trust it to a tax preparation service that you might find in the grocery store, especially when you need a lot more than just tax work. And one day soon, he will publish both of his manuscripts and start fleshing out the crazy fiction idea he cannot shake from his memory.
If I wasn’t married to a CPA (who fortunately offers me no-fee advice), I’d certainly be going to Chris for all of my tax and accounting needs. He was very gracious with his advice in this interview, which speaks to the facts that he knows what he’s talking about and that he’s generous with his expertise. (more…)
