I started Common Cents Consulting…aka The Common Cents because I wanted to help other online service businesses to make more money and keep more of it.
Picture it, it was the early 2000s and I was working in a rather large corporate accounting department. I was burned out and I was tired. Tired of trying to have an impact (and really tired of wearing suits and going into an office everyday punching a time clock).
What I really wanted to do was use my accounting degree, my CPA license and the years of experience that I had accumulated to actually help folks. Help people that are a bit nontraditional & quirky like me…the ones that thrive outside of their comfort zones & like to live outside of the 9 to 5 box (not that there’s anything wrong with that – but that’s another story for another day).
You see, learning all the things and doing all the things in attempts to build a profitable business isn’t easy. It’s one of the most stressful & worrisome “career” choices I’ve ever made. Yet it’s probably the most rewarding one too.
Everyday, I get to work with some of the most brilliant men and women alive…across the globe without ever leaving the comfort of my home (unless I want to).
Helping my fellow online entrepreneurs to track their money, set goals to make more money and personalizing strategies to help them keep more of the money they’ve earned is what I do.
And I absolutely love it.
