Why I’m Choosing Block Advisors – H&R Block

February 15, 2021

When I created the Aspen Agency back in 2017. I put a lot if not ALL of my focus into the creative side of things. Yea sure I had been technically working for myself since I was 16 as a freelance model but handling those numbers was a little easier than handling the numbers of a business you were starting from the ground up. 

I spent so much time neglecting the numbers that I was really breaking even a lot of the times but I didn’t care because I was having fun. It was just one of my “part-time” side hustles for a while so I thought that couldn’t hurt too much and I could figure out the numbers later! 


Block Advisors not only make things easy when it comes to doing to do your small business taxes but they also supply peace of mind when it comes to all some of the other financial worries and woes that you may have when starting a new business. Even helping you decide what business structure makes the most sense for you.


Getting set up with a small business certified tax pro at Block Advisors (a team within H&R Block) has allowed and will continue to allow me to be able to fully focus on the creative and have a clear and not so scary path when it comes to dealing with the financial side of things. 

I can’t wait to continue to share this journey with you all as a Block Advisors partner and hopefully help you realize that numbers don’t really have to be scary!
