I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I used to work in a music store. Not a record store, but a store that sold instruments and taught lessons. When worked there, I was one of the only people on staff that wasn't a musician.
I'd like to think that if I really put my mind to it, I could be a good musician too. I also like to think about being a billionaire, and that's not realistic either.
When I was there, I found myself giving business and tax tips to the people who were playing in bands outside of work. It turns out most venues don't check your bookkeeping before offering you a gig. Who knew? Because of that, I realized that this particular niche could really use some help keeping their books in order. I kept telling myself to do something about it, and I finally have.
Just last week, I finally launched a 2nd website. I've decided to call it That Rockkeeper. I know, kind of a weird name, but it keeps my current naming convention alive, and I certainly didn't have any trouble getting the domain name.
I just put up a post with a tip for musicians this month. I think the basic advice is useful for anyone who claims self employment income on their tax returns, so go check it out. If you're a musician yourself, let me know if there are any topics you'd like addressed, and I'll be sure to get to them in the future.
