Set Your Business Up To Be Financially Sound

“If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail” – Unknown

Wouldn’t it be great if you could take all the information that you’ve collected while running your photography career and be able to plan for a bigger, brighter, richer future?

What?  You don’t have a plan?
You haven’t collected any data?

For November’s monthly meeting of the Greater Rochester Professional Photographers (GRPP), we’ve invited Lisa Pelletier, a financial expert from SCORE, an organization of experienced business professionals, to give us tips on how to set up our records to allow us to collect better information that will allow us to plan better.

Remember, we are not photographers…we are running a business that happens to entail photography.  Studies have shown that most businesses fail not because they are not good at what they do…they fail because they cannot sufficiently operate a business.


As part of Lisa’s business, Pelletier Accounting and Tax Service, she speaks on behalf of SCORE to business owners and groups all over Rochester on how to properly manage your books and set yourselves up to succeed.

Lisa will not be throwing accounting terms at you, which has historically been proven to put an insomniac to sleep in four-and-a-half seconds.  She’ll be using easily understood terms that have proven to work with all of her audiences.

Date:  Wednesday, November 9, 2011
Location:  Lumiere Photo, 100 College Avenue, Rochester, NY

Time:  Social hour begins at 6:00.
Announcements at 7:00, and Lisa’s presentation will begin shortly after.

The meeting is free for members of PPSNYS/GRPP.  The fee for non-members is $30.
