Tell us all about your business...

I am a CPA, business mentor, and coach with the heart of a teacher.

No excuses. You own all the decisions.

If there was one thing you could do repeatedly to help grow your business, what would it be?


What are some of the things you put in place to maintain a healthy work/life balance and to keep it all together?

Calendar boundaries.
