  • Value Pricing

    Our pricing is flat-rate, based on value, and packaged specifically for you.  We provide a personal, intimate service, and we mean for you to feel comfortable with us, and know that the value we're providing exceeds the price you pay. After meeting with you to get a deeper understanding of your needs, we'll design a proposal for you.

  • How We Work

    Because we believe effective technology is critical to your success, we curate a technology stack for your business that is integrative, collaborative, and scalable.

    Accounting Hub

    We use Xero, because they are the global leader in online accounting software. Their beautiful design plays nicely with add-ons like Stripe. They've transcended their competitors by delivering a system that fits the modern business, while still adhering with good old-fashioned, time-tested accounting principles.

    Bills and Payroll

    We like Gusto and Bill.com because they help us pay employees and vendors without a bunch of hassle, all online. So simple, so mobile, so compliant. And, it talks to our accounting software, entirely eliminating old-school redundancy.

    Filing

    The most recent addition to our preferred tech stack is Hubdoc. We can't say enough good things about this fetch system that uses secure connections to retrieve and shelve the documents you need on hand, ready to grab at a moment's notice. Goodbye, paper-chase!

  • Our Roots

    Meet Challen.

    A CPA for nearly 20 years, I left my career as a management consultant at a Big 4 firm to become a dedicated, full-time mom to my young children. This eventually also freed me up to help entrepreneurs in my community with bookkeeping and business technology. I like helping small companies with big ideas.

    Purpose.

    Experience has taught me how important it is to pay attention to a new idea, especially an outrageous one. To be willing to acknowledge a problem and look for a solution, and to take action. To be respectful of curiosity, and to spend time every day exploring and learning.  I like helping other people do this, too.

    I believe.

    I believe in communicating effectively and authentically, and working collaboratively to support one another. I believe we all deserve to live abundantly, and I care about the people I work with. I believe my work is a service opportunity.

    Infinity.

    If a day were infinite, I would also read a novel, paint a new color on my walls, and run for hours in the mountains. I try to do a little of some of these things most days. They fuel my energy, motivate my thinking, and distill my soul.
