Creator of the Profit Planner & Co- founder of Kickstart Accounting
As a Chief Financial Officer for over 10 years, though she loved accounting, but felt like something was missing while just helping investors and board of directors of large companies.
That’s when she realized she felt a certain thrill for helping entrepreneurs, especially women, who were breaking the rules of business in order to create something amazing – something the rest of the world didn’t expect them to do.
Since co- founding Kickstart Accounting she saw that entrepreneurs need more than just a bookkeeper; they need real financial analysis and education in order to get the confidence required to create the sustainable wealth they deserve.
So she created The Profit Planner to help business owners know how to analyze their business correctly, generate more profits easily, and gain greater confidence in business and by getting really intimate with their financials.
