Pam actually enjoys reconciling and working under pressure, and even likes talking to people. As one of our senior bookkeepers, she makes sure that all those numbers line up in the correct location, while supporting and teaching the rest of the team.
Bookkeeping matters, and no matter how great the software is, you need a real human to get in there and make sure it’s done right, on time, with minimal costs and headaches. If you’re still tracking your numbers using spreadsheets, focusing on data instead of your clients, please hand it off as soon as possible.
In the beginning, you could barely get anyone to talk to you. You sent proposals, you tried to make connections, you networked like a demon. Then suddenly....all the chickens came home to roost. How do you capitalize on all of this amazing growth, without going crazy, burning out, disappointing customers, or alienating your team?
Addressing conflict early can minimize the damage, and demonstrate that you’re invested in the relationship, and in doing the hard work of communicating with kindness. Oh, and you don’t need to apologize - especially for doing your job.
While we don’t ever advocate for burning yourself out, there is more than one way to run your life, and the solution to these scenarios may just be balance. Crazy notion, we know, but it is possible to balance responsibilities you can’t yet delegate, and still enjoy a vacation.

Lauded by everyone she’s ever worked with for her organizational expertise, warmth, and dogmatic approach to task management, our Chief Slayer, Shannon, is a force to be reckoned with. We love to celebrate Shannon, who drives our core values, communications, and culture, each and every day.
If you are investing in online and social marketing and you’re not using a content calendar, you are likely spending more time than necessary (and probably more time than you have), reading, posting, replying and more. Yet, your results may be inconsistent and incohesive.
Art can speak volumes to your customers about your services, products, values, and much more. But if you don’t meet your customers in person, or they’re seeing you for the first time on social media, how can you send that visual message? And how can you keep design costs from breaking the bank?
When we met Tiffany, her buoyant, cheerful personality, along with her incredible attention to detail and bookkeeping experience confirmed that she was already a Slayer - she just needed to join our team.
Our Shoebox Slayer, Gail, loves building templates that can be used in everyday life, from Daily Cash Budgets to Fixed Asset Sub-Ledgers with Monthly Depreciation (you love those too right? No? Maybe you need Gail…).
Are you working in philanthropy? Fundraising is a team sport, and Cathy Mann has been on that team since 1989, raising between $500,000 and $5,000,000 in benevolent revenue for charitable organizations throughout her career.
Sometimes, it feels like doing something is better than doing nothing, but the reality is… doing nothing is better than doing something wrong. A little rest, lifting your foot off of that gas pedal, and giving yourself some breathing room can be the most effective bit of work you’ve done in weeks.
You need teammates who share your values, and value your customers. By working with the right people to disrupt an industry, the industry becomes stronger, more work is created for everyone, customers receive better service and products - and they keep coming back for more.
Do you ever find yourself staring at your computer screen, with no motivation to get your work done? Let’s help you get out of that rut and into a more productive and focused mindset, shall we? How? With music!

Planning of any kind - business, financial, personal - actively creates success. The truth is that creating and making use of plans (reviewing, updating) actually improves whatever aspect of your world that you’re working on. It doesn’t have to be boring, and it doesn’t have to be restrictive. A plan is simply a map, not a cage.
