Business owners have a lot to keep track of outside of just running the business, and one of the biggest headaches is keeping accurate financial records. Many small business owners end up handling recordkeeping themselves to save money, but it is important to know what you need to do when you are your own accountant. Join Monica Reyes, owner of Inmobiliaria Inc, for a conversation about best practices for managing the bookkeeping side of the business when you have to do it yourself. You won’t want to miss this informative and important session.
Mónica Reyes Rodríguez is an activist, sociologist, community organizer and financial expert. She was born in Mazatlan Sinaloa Mexico. She immigrated to California through the desert at the age of 3 years old alongside her mother and younger sister, Nilvia Reyes, fleeing domestic violence. She and her family later established themselves in Iowa when she was six years old. She grew up in a small, agricultural community called New Hampton, Iowa where she helped the hard-working immigrant community defend their civil liberties. She later co-founded DREAM Iowa and currently sits on the board in order to connect immigrant families and advocates via social media and community events. Shortly after qualifying for DACA, she began her career in the financial industry while attending college. She chose to develop her career in the financial industry with the mission of helping marginalized communities establish a foundation for wealth through access to financial services.
