THE SERVICES

Going cross-eyed staring at your P&L statement
 isn’t exactly what you had in mind when you dreamt 
about building your business.

What if instead of spending your already-full days chugging coffee 
and second-guessing your math skills, you could glance at a few key metrics and know exactly what steps to take to hit your goals?

Making sense of your business finances isn’t second-nature for most business owners—you’re 100% not alone. 

Whether you want to be more confident in the day-to-day, actually-taking-a-paycheck numbers side of business, or you want a monthly report of your numbers and a partner to dream & plan with, there’s a way I can help. 

(Yea, I'll say it.)

And if you’re building a business that you want to run sustainably alongside life’s other priorities …
… well, you’re going to have to learn how to play in the sandbox with your business’s numbers. 
(I promise they’re pretty fun once you get to know them.)

But those numbers are the only metric that really matters.
Your finances are the only thing telling us the actual health of 
your business and where it can really go.

"You make money simple. You take the struggle out of money to free people up to do what matters.

^^ Best. Feedback. Ever.

And now, I want the same for you.

You’ll invest in big ways to generate more revenue—personal growth, web design, professional photos, salaries for your team, and more—but if you can’t make sense of your numbers … or if you’re clueless beyond looking at sales … how do you know where you’re leaving money on the table?

After all, it’s not just about making money—it’s about managing and minding it well, too. I’m here to bridge the gap—I’ll help you feel confident in your understanding of every dollar within your business, whether it's a $10k a year side-hustle or multi-million dollar empire, the fundamentals are the same.

And you don’t have to be Einstein to understand the formulas.

Money may not be the reason you started your business, but it’s the only thing that will keep you in business.

CFO-For-Hire

You’ve built something truly impressive, but when you’re in over your head—or even just a little uncertain—doubt and fear can creep in uninvited and convince you of more than a few crazy what-if’s …
