"Art isn't only a painting. Art is anything that's creative, passionate, and personal. And great art resonates with the viewer, not only with the creator." - Seth Godin, Linchpin: Are you Indispensable?


Artistzen Business Management serves as the finance department for your business.  

We serve two primary types of clients: musician businesses and festival businesses.  

Because of our laser focus on only two business types, we have been able to dive deep into the operations of many different entities to uncover the standard "architecture" that is now reflected in the structure of the books that we manage.  We explain this architecture to you, organize the data to conform to this architecture, and then provide you with monthly reports so that you can understand your business better, understand how to make more money, and have the information you need to make growth decisions.   

Lastly we focus on the "softer" side of the business through deep listening to help uncover where you and your business want to go.
