Levi Morehouse is not a yoga teacher, a yoga studio owner, or a yoga entrepreneur. He is a small business owner though, and his small business is an accounting + book keeping company called Ceterus. Ceterus' slogan is "let us do the rest" + they provide services for small business owners doing their accounting or book keeping.
You may be curious why I wanted to talk to Levi. The reason is that I think that book keeping + accounting is something that many people in the yoga industry lack, and that's fair enough. We, as yoga teachers, are great at educating and sharing our knowledge of yoga. We are not accountants, we are not book keepers, and we are not (usually) super knowledgeable in the area of accounting + book keeping. And we shouldn't be. We should be focusing on the things that we are great at, and let someone else do the things that we aren't. This is exactly what Levi and I chat about on this episode of the podcast.
Levi shares his passion for accounting + book keeping, his recommendations for yoga studio owners, and the services that Ceterus provides, as well as industry tips + tricks.
