Andi Smiles_Headshot_SmHello hello hello! I’m Andi. I’ve been a small business bookkeeper since 2010 and I’m passionate about help freelancers and soloprenuers build healthy friendships with their finances. My core belief is that when business owners have an active and engaged relationship with their finances, they deepen their personal awareness around money, ultimately leading to a more sustainable and authentic business.

As a bookkeeper, I notice that people want to talk about their money from a real perspective. With regular words and without all the should-ing and must do-ing that so many financial advisors and books pile on. I’m not here to tell you what you should do- I’m here to help you do it.

I don’t just want you to be able to talk about money, I want you to be able to talk with it. I want you to be empowered to engage with and to feel good about your finances- no matter how many dollars are in your bank account.

Money is an emotional process and often people forget that what they need most is to be kind to themselves in their financial journey. So this site is about kindness. It’s about loving all your dollars (the big ones and the small) and it’s about taking action in service of building a BFF connection with your finances.

Want to know a wee bit more about the personal me? Sure!

I live in San Francisco with my muppet rescue dog (featured in this post) and my partner. I love photography, scrapbooking, being crafty, lounging in the hammock at our cabin, traveling, volunteering for causes I believe in, and, most of all, living life with passion and purpose.
