Q. How have you adapted your business during Covid-19?
We are trying to find ways to sustain our business for the artists we represent as well as for ourselves since there have been no in-person events. Some clients are interested in making the switch to Virtual events, which has kept us busy. With this said, the budgets have been reduced for virtual performances and not all performers feel comfortable or are setup to do performances from their home.
Q. What’s your biggest challenge as a small business owner?
Keeping our business going with a smaller staff and keeping morale high since all of our 2020 ‘Live’ Events have been canceled. Our goal is to continue to give our clients the same level of attention as we did before Covid 19, to ensure that their events are a success. With a smaller staff and limited resources, we have realized that our relationships are what matter. When you believe in what you are doing 150% then it gives you the motivation to work harder. We are optimistic that we will come through this, though and hopefully incorporate the positives aspects of doing an event virtually with the live events once we are on the other side of Covid 19.
Q. Why did you decide to seek bookkeeping services for your practice?
Before Covid-19, our business was beginning to grow to the point that we felt we needed help. We found that our small staff of four did not have the time or expertise to meet the demands of our growing business.
Q. Tell us about your experience working with Capri so far?
One of the best decisions we made for our business was working with Capri. Andrea and Natalie jumped right in and helped us create a workflow with our accounts that made sense and was much more efficient. This allowed us to focus on other aspects of the business in order to continue to grow. They have given us peace of mind and have taught us so much about bookkeeping, which has been invaluable!
