Giersch Milwaukee Bookkeeping for Business
Work Hard. Rest. Assured.

Case Study: Forty-Two Foot Forward Music


Josh Schmidt is a composer, sound designer, and musician from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His work has been featured all across the US and UK, and he has been recognized in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Chicago Tribune.


Josh is an independent artist, and like most artists, he has little experience in running a business. Josh sought out the Giersch Group for help negotiating a contract, tracking his revenue and expenses and planning for cash-flow needs over the course of the contract.


Josh was able to manage his cash flow sufficiently and stay focused on the music soundtrack he needed to produce for his client. The Giersch Group also helped Josh explore financing options and when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, assisted Josh to apply for the PPP Loan and explore other government relief options.


Josh has benefited from understanding his financial position using the Giersch Group’s clear monthly financial reports. He has also bettered his business through the introduction to a business banker along with other business vendors.

“Outstanding and thorough service in addition to being a firm populated with great people. The weight of financial bookkeeping is off my shoulders -- worth every penny!”
