WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BUILD THIS MEMBERSHIP SITE
INRODUCING THE MEMBERSHIP SITE
As a former independent stylist, salon owner, and cosmetology student, I wish that cosmetology schools offered a basic business class as part of its curriculum.
Such a class would help potential cosmetologists and barbers familiarize themselves with some of the basic but very important things they need to know before starting their own business.
THIS IS A MEMBERSHIP SITE FOR SALON PROFESSIONALS!
This membership site is a great opportunity for independent stylists and salon owners that have been thinking about hiring a CPA but either couldn’t afford to pay for the service, or wasn’t sure exactly what they were getting for the price, or wasn’t sure if the person they are hiring is familiar with the hair salon industry.
FINANCES FOR INDEPENDENT STYLISTS & SALON OWNERS membership site is run and operated by a Certified Public Accountant that knows your industry.

The bookkeeping for your business will be done each month. You will receive monthly financial reports that you can use to make informed monthly decisions for your business. Having access to the reports means you will always have the information you need to calculate and pay your quarterly estimated taxes as well as all the reports you need to prepare and file your yearly tax return.
ACCESS TO BUSINESS CALCULATORS & WORKSHEETS
There are so many moving parts to running a business. Having the right tools cuts down on the time and the frustration you may experience when trying to gather all the business information you need to make informed decisions, grow your business, and allocate & diversify your profits. As part of your membership, you will have access to several online calculators that will help you gather useful data for your business and personal finances. Some of the calculators include: cash flow management calculator, estimated tax calculator, retirement calculator, cost per hour for each service calculator, personal monthly budgeting tool.
MONTHLY LIVE Q&A CALLS
Our monthly Q&A calls will be held in form of a Zoom meeting. During our live monthly Q&A’s, I will answer questions that members have. Members can either pre-submit their questions or ask their questions live during the call. All Q&A sessions will be recorded so if you aren’t able to attend a live session, you can watch or listen to the call at your convenience.
50% OF TAX PREPERATION SERVICES
Now that your books are in order and are being maintained on a monthly basis, there is no excuse for why you are not able to file your tax return on a timely basis each year. Hopefully you are keeping up with your quarterly estimated tax payments so that by the time your return is due you’ve already paid your taxes and now all you have to do is prepare and submit your return. As a member of the program you will receive 50% off your yearly tax preparation. My tax preparation fee is between $450 & $500 (it can be more depending on the complexity of your return) which means you will pay between $225 & $250.
FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES
Access to my suite of financial development courses. These classes are self-paced and they will help your business and financial growth. Some of the topics are:
How should I pay myself as a business owner? Tax savings for the beauty industry professional; Cash flow management; How to budget your way to financial freedom; and much more.....
PRIVATE CONSULTATIONS FOR IRS OR STATE TAX PROBLEMS
Dealing with IRS or State tax problems can be very scary if you don’t understand or know what your options are. As a member of the program, I will ease your fears and concerns by helping you understand your circumstance and provide you with different options based on your situation. I will also help provide you with a plan of action.
My name is Desarie Anderson. I am a former hair salon owner and independent stylists. Before changing career’s and becoming an Accountant, I worked in the beauty industry for 22 years.
I have now merged my extensive knowledge of the beauty industry with my experience as a Certified Public Accountant and I now work mainly with beauty industry professionals, mostly independent stylists and salon owners, helping them understand, organize, and manage their business and personal finances.
Having a background in the hair and salon space gives me a slight advantage over accounting professionals that do not have the experience of the day-to-day operations of a salon or rental space.
I hope you will join me by becoming a member of this program!

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Can I cancel my subscripton at anytime
Yes, you can cancel your subscription at any time. Your cancellation will become effective during the next billing cycle.
What happens after I join the membership site
After you join the site, you will have access to all the tools and material on the site. You will also receive an email from me requesting all the documents I will need to begin setting up your QuickBooks account.
Can I get one-on-one help and support with my questions and concerns
Part of creating this site was to help independent stylists with their tax, accounting, bookkeeping, and business needs in a community setting. The idea is to ask general questions in an open forum so that other members can benefit from the answer. You can, however, send me a private message if you have a question that you don’t want anyone to see. The goal is to keep all communication on the membership site. I discourage sending emails because I’m afraid that your email might get lost in the email shuffle and I might not see your questions.
I already have a QuickBooks Online Account, can I use my account or do I have to start a new account
In order to be part of the membership site, you would have to start a new account. I can, however, transfer the information your old account to your new account if all transactions have been properly recorded.
Are all your services covered by my monthly subscription
Although a vast number of my services are covered by the membership plan, there will be times when a service you need may not be part of the plan. This will be determined on an individual basis.
Do hair salon owners that work alone qualify to join the membership site?
Although this membership site is exclusively for independent stylists, if you are a salon owner that works alone, you qualify to be a member of the site.
Is there a separate set up and catch up fee to set up my QuickBooks online account and to catch up prior months?
There is no setup fee, but there is a catch-up fee. The catch-up fee covers your bookkeeping for the previous months prior to joining the program. The catch-up fee is $750. The fee is waived for the first eight members to join the program and for members that purchase the yearly subscription plan.
Do you offer discounts or specials?
If you opt for the yearly subscription, you receive a $600 yearly discount. The catch-up fee valued at $750 is also waived for yearly subscribers. I only run specials on prior month catch up work.
