We highlight people in many different industries, areas, and expertise to help business owners not feel so alone and provide actionable insights in each episode. Our Team We are a small virtual team that works asynchronously through a myriad of tools (there are too many if we are honest, help us.) The owner is a tax nerd with a personality who has lots of ideas and little time to implement them. She likes technology and has shiny object syndrome. We need you to help her with the implementation of her great ideas. The rest of the staff has roles in managing the bookkeeping and podcast. You will assist all of us in processes, systems, general management of projects, fixing holes in our capabilities, etc. We run on the following values: Abundance - we believe that the world is a vast place of opportunity and that money is energy. That might sound woo but it means we value the services, people, and technology that assist us in moving our business forward. Authenticity & Honesty - no work personas here. We value each other and show up as us every day. We mess up, we own it, we fix it if we can, we learn what we can and we move on. Communication - we want our clients to tell us what is going on and loop us in. Same for the team. A 48 hour response time is a must. Impact - we want to leave our clients, our team, and the accounting industry in a better place than we found it. We do that every day by supporting our clients and each other. Who are you? You are the type of person who loves to work independently, loves figuring out how things work and making them better. You like people and solving their problems (even when it’s a client asking you for a digital copy of their tax return 10 times in one year). You like being the go-between for clients and partners.

Do you know how to prioritize what’s important vs. what is urgent? Are your refrigerator shelves labeled? We need you. - Calling people on their bullsh*t (tactfully, of course).

Familiarity with the unique challenges and benefits of small businesses is a plus. - Strong attention to detail and affinity for processes. Can you follow every step in a process?

We are looking for a good cultural fit. - Sociability. We maintain open lines of communication (both with clients and with coworkers). We need someone who is personable and knows how to read the room. We need someone who has great communication skills and is energized by client-facing work. - Proficiency with Google Workspace/G Suite. We work with a lot of programs, but Google Workspace is kind of our home base. - Aptitude and desire to learn new software & systems. The more streamlined a process is, the better. We are adaptable and always looking for better ways of doing things. We’re looking for someone who can help us in this area as well. - Growth & Learning. Do you love learning?
