Hey there,  welcome to Shoebox-Be-Gone!

By day I’m an award winning accountant, Chief Creator of Genius, and wannabe super-mom.  I’m also a public speaker and the leading expert in social media’s impact on tax law.  By night… I’m an exhausted entrepreneurial mom with too many great ideas and too little hours in a day.

I get it.  Accounting?  The absolute last thing on your plate.  Eventually you’ll have to deal with the CRA or the IRS but today is not that day.  I know how you feel because I’m the same way… with my laundry. So I get it – I really do.   And there’s no shame in this space.  Lay it all out for me and prepare to breathe easier.  Unless you have asthma.  Or there’s a 50lb toddler sitting on your chest.  Can’t help you there.

Trust the experts!

When it comes to social media and tax law – trust the expert!  Running a direct sales business?  You’ve come to the right place.  Are you looking to build a business that not only keeps you busy but pays your salary?  A business you thoroughly enjoy in an industry you are passionate about?  Would you like to not only think outside the box but step out of it too?  For everything from pricing structure and product development to marketing strategy and brand experience – if you’re looking for a fresh perspective I’m your gal.

I’ve spoken all over North America on these subjects and entertained many with my humour, real-world case studies, and anecdotes.  Oh! And your dog?  Not an advanced intruder warning system.  Sorry.

What people are saying

You’ve made it so much easier for us to run our business and grow. We didn’t expect that – we just expected you to do the books. Thanks for giving us such nice surprises!

Honestly, I thought you sold bookkeeping services. What’s been really great to discover, is that as you’ve done your thing (and very well I might add), I’ve been able to do my thing WAY better.
