You’re not alone. Particularly this time of year, you may be scrambling to get your taxes done and realizing that you don’t have a good system for managing your money. Or maybe, you’ve been avoiding music business management and tracking income and expenses completely.

If that’s you, ignorance may feel like bliss right now, but I promise it will catch up with you.
