“Working with Emily is the best thing I could have done for myself and my business. In a few short months, my outlook and confidence around being self-employed have changed so that I can focus and plan in a way that I never felt able to do before. I have shared my success and love of her method with many friends and family members and I cannot say enough how thankful I am for her help! The skills and tools she introduced me to have certainly been beneficial, but it’s important to say that Emily really took the time to understand my situation. Her grounded and positive attitude made something that was scary for me much more doable, and even fun!”

Questions we will answer together:

  • What's the best way for me to track my income and expenses?

  • How much do I really make?

  • Do I have enough saved for taxes?

  • How do I factor time off and sick time into my business budget?

  • How can I cut my business expenses?

  • How can I set up my business infrastructure and pricing so that it honors my time?

How it works

Business owners can begin to answer the questions above through an initial Trailhead Session, or can dive in during a 3-month financial coaching program.

It takes time when starting your business to get used to the difference between total revenue brought in, and what you actually get to pay yourself. However, the skills needed to successfully manage your business finances are the same that are used to make your personal finances work.

When we work together we will discuss your current record keeping system, expenses, goals and questions.  We will organize your income and expenses in a way that makes tax time easy. You will be able to confidently set aside money for taxes, decide what to pay yourself and set savings goals for your dream studio/supplies/continuing education. I will teach you how to easily do your own bookkeeping, which you could always choose to pay someone for down the road.

You will also get additional resources and customized spreadsheets for tracking necessary business items that don’t go on your budget, such as mileage.
