Owner & Accountant,
Hi, I’m Karen, and I help small business owners understand their worth.
One way is quite literal – through organizing a company’s numbers and sharing what exactly those numbers are telling us. When you look at your financials as a whole, there’s a lot of good information to be had to help you make solid business decisions and grow. Let’s dig into it together.
The other way is through challenging the stories we hold around money, math and numbers. We have all arrived at adulthood with ideas we picked up in childhood, in school, in society around money, and most of them are not very positive. It’s so common to witness fear and shame around this topic. But with a little guidance, encouragement, and practice, I know you can have a juicy, loving relationship with your finances! Yes, you! Let me show you how.
