You’re ready to get your financial sh*t together and stop feeling scattered, disorganized, and overwhelmed.

Your business is rocking. You’ve got clients. You’ve got income. And you’re haunted by a financial to-do list that’s buried under piles of paper because- ugh- money.

Or maybe your fear of money is holding you back. Are you….

Afraid to launch because you don’t trust yourself with money?

Already overwhelmed by everything there is to know about the money side of running a business?

Convinced that as soon as you make money, you’ll lose it?

Worried that your old messes will come back to haunt you so you’re too afraid to start?

Now is the time to start dealing with your money

Let’s get real about money in your business. Raise your hand if...

You’re worried that you’re making mistakes that are going to cost your money later

Every time you look at your bookkeeping you think- WTF?

You’d rather watch that creepy girl from The Ring crawl out of the TV than face your quarterly taxes

You’re spending and spending and spending and there’s never enough to pay yourself at the end of the month

You bury your head in the sand about finances and pray it will just “work itself out”

What would it look like for your business if you had a SYSTEM to track your income, expenses, and numbers?

Wouldn’t it be SO RAD if you… 

Didn’t spend hours a day dealing with your business finances because *gasp* everything is really really organized

 Knew exactly how much to save for taxes and didn’t have a total meltdown on April 15th

 Knew when to spend and when to save so you can stop asking yourself, “Should I have bought that?”

 Paid yourself on a regular basis- and not just the bare minimum either 

Had a plan that told you everything you need to do to get your business to where you want it to be financially

Approached your business finances with an “I got this” attitude instead of an impending sense of doom

You want to get a handle on your money but you’re intimidated by…well, everything. You’re thinking…

“I’m just getting started and everything is overwhelming and scary.”

“I don’t have time for my clients, how am I going to keep up with my finances too?”

“I have no idea what I’m doing or how to deal with taxes.”

“I’m terrible with numbers and must be doing something wrong.”

“I have no clue where to even begin.”

I know, there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you’re trying to stay on top of the finances in your business. 

If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes, get off track, and never end up organized and in control of your money

Not dealing with your business finances has a serious impact on your business: getting in trouble with the taxman, filing your taxes late (and paying penalties), and not having money to pay a big tax bill. All of these things are REAL consequences to ignoring your business finances.

That’s why I’ve created my step by step signature online program, Bad Ass Business Finance.

Bad Ass Business Finance:

A step by step program that teaches you exactly how to manage the money in your business

“After completing BABF I have a solid structure and working knowledge of exactly how my business works and works for me.

Before taking the course, I felt totally confused about the process of business finances altogether. Now, I feel so much relief in terms of my ability to dive in as a full-time entrepreneur.

– Seida Hood, CEO & Clinical Director

From the Heart Counseling

“If I knew what I was going to come out with in this course before I paid, I would have paid $1,600! The lessons and content really is worth 4x what I paid!

What I loved most about Bad Ass Business Finance is that it was smartly structured. I had enough information from the previous modules to confidently start the next one and understand it. Plus I didn’t need an accounting degree to understand any of it. The action steps were very doable and helpful. I like the way they ‘forced’ me to do something I would have not done otherwise.

Now I feel very confident about my business finances and my stress level about my money is way lower!”

“The content was so much more than ‘tips.’ That is what was refreshing about the course. It provided depth and guidance. I felt able to take action based on what was shared and Andi did not share any unnecessary information in the midst of the course.

Through Bad Ass Business Finance I created a clear financial map based on my professional and personal life. I also have a better understanding of how to have an effective conversation with money on a professional level.  I enjoyed connecting all of the moving money parts of the business into one system.”

Dr. Stacy Mobley, Wellness Doctor

“I feel organized, confident, and even motivated to process, plan, and manage my finances weekly.

Bad Ass Business Finance provides real answers to real questions that I wasn’t even sure how to ask. Before, I attempted managing my business finances, but had no plan for what to do, was stressed daily about whether I was doing everything related to my finances properly, and got so overwhelmed with countless spreadsheets that seemed pointless.

I can make decisions based on real numbers, not “guesses” about whether I did something right. I love having access to the modules to return to when I need to refresh and remember the goal for specific tasks.”

Certified Speech-Language Pathologist

I’m Andi- small business financial consultant and recovering financial hot mess!

For 10+ years I’ve been a professional bookkeeper and small business financial consultant. Even though I was teaching my clients to organize their business finances, stay in control of their spending, and take care of themselves financially, I had a BIG secret.

My own business finances were a hot mess!

I was like you- behind on my bookkeeping, flying by the seat of my financial pants, and clueless about how to actually make money work in my business.

Then, I transformed my business finances into the bad ass system it is today, using the same process I’m going to teach you.

Now, instead of just talking the financial talk, I’m riding into the rainbow sunset on the back of a majestic money unicorn, ready to take on the world- or at least, your finances.

Wondering about my credentials? I’m a Certified Professional Coach through Leadership the Works Coaching for Transformation program, which is accredited by the International Coaching Federation.

THIS COURSE IS 100% PAJAMA FRIENDLY: DO IT FROM HOME, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD AND ON YOUR SCHEDULE

You can complete the course lessons lounging in your favorite sweatpants and messy bun. All you need is an internet connection. The entire program is completely digital so you can access it from anywhere (yes, even the couch) through our private course portal. 

Go at your own pace and do the lessons on your schedule. Each module ends with an action item (aka your “homework”) and most modules include a worksheet that guides you through the homework, step by step.

This program is designed for U.S. based businesses, although some of the systems and processes can be applied to businesses anywhere in the world. You can decide if this course is right for you, but ultimately what I teach is for the United States.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FINISH THE COURSE?

That really depends on you, your unique situation, and how obsessed with your finances you become (which will probably be pretty obsessed).

I provide two suggested timelines for completing the course. For the Fast Track option, most students set aside 4-6 hours every week (that’s less than an hour a day) and complete the course in three months.

For the Slow and Steady option, students set aside 1-2 hours every week and complete the course in six months.

Creating healthy money habits now means you save money later

Not dealing with your business finances costs you- and it costs you more than time and stress. It costs you actual money.

Missed deductions, impulsive spending, forgetting to follow up on overdue invoices, and shiny new thing syndrome all cost real dollars that could go towards building the business and lifestyle you want.

This program is perfect for…

 Bloggers

  Course Creators

  Therapists

  Coaches

  Consultants

  Web & Graphic Designers

 Fitness Instructors

  Makers

  Virtual Assistants

  Wellness Practitioners

  Personal Service Providers

  And so many more!

See what past students are saying about Andi

  • Andi's training was so great! I really enjoyed the information and the fun and colorful slides. I finally felt like I could follow along. I also really love action points. I get so sick of folks explaining shit and then I am left like, ok what do I do now. I loved how energetic she was and how accessible her tools are. So great and one of my favorite facilitators so far.

  • OMG, I can't say enough about how amazing I think Andi is! Not just an incredible wealth of information, but so clear, concise, organized, and pleasurable to learn from/watch/be with. And she is the opposite of overwhelm, presenting the top four things to know/do and making them seem easy. Love love love Andi and her work!

  • I LOVED how practical Andi's training was, and there were a few really helpful pieces of orienting information. So much that was so useful and I wouldn't have muddled into on my own without a lot of suffering first!

  • My biggest takeaway from Andi's training is that I can actually do this. I keep all my cash in my closet and have refused to look at my finances. It felt too overwhelming. I also didn't know where the hell to start with taxes and when I asked people to help they just spit out a bunch of words that I thought I didn't understand. It felt like mashed potatoes in my head. The way Andi explained it was so helpful and I realized that I actually know more than I expected.

  • After Andi's training, I realized I need to take care of my money and I can take care of my money. It's totally possible and there are resources to help me.

At the end of BABF you will….

Have a personalized financial system and workflow that keeps you organized, sane, and on top of your money

See the big picture of your finances and understand how all the moving parts work so you stop scratching your head, wondering “Now what?”

Know exactly what to do with the money in your business and start making intentional decisions instead of impulsive ones

Feel capable of reaching your long term-goals because you’ll have a step by step action plan that shows you how to grow your business (on your terms)

Be able to replicate each process yourself so as your business evolves, so do your finances

You’ve got two choices…

Sure- you probably could figure this stuff out on your own with the help of Google, but that would take a REALLY long time.

OR

You can follow my step by step process for creating a financial system that sustains your business, minimizes your tax burden, and makes sure the personal you is taken care of (hello, owner pay). All in a few months.

Imagine what you could do with all that extra time: Book more clients! Develop passive income streams! Stay in your zone of genius! Or even (dare I say it?!)…Relax.

You can do this, even if you suck at math

I don’t have time for this

I can’t pretend that you can fix your finances with zero time investment. But, I can make the process quicker and easier for you. BABF breaks down every step into small action items that are totally doable- even if you only have an hour a week.

Don’t I need to focus on making money first?

Here’s a story I hear over and over again: You start your business. It takes off (yay!). You begin making a bunch of money and get busier and busier. So busy that suddenly you need more information about your finances so you can make big decisions about your business.

But guess what. When things got busy, you left your money behind. And now that you need it, it’s not there for you. And there’s so much to catch up on that it’s going to take forever.

The bottom line: Setting things up the right way early pays off in the long run.

I’m terrible at numbers!

I’ve got good news- you don’t have to be good at math to manage your money well. The most important element for good money skills are good habits. And that’s what you learn in BABF.

And for anything that does require math and numbers, I’ve created helpful spreadsheets that do all the calculations for you.

She is a person with integrity and that is how she runs everything in her life and work. People and professionals like Andi are a rarity. Once you find them, you hold on to them!

Login to the course and start learning! All eight modules plus the bonuses are waiting for you.

Got questions? I’ve got answers…

Will this course work for a landscaping/massage/salon/product-based/my business?

Yes! This course is about the fundamentals of business finance and can be applied to any business. The nice thing about numbers is that they pretty much work the same across the board. Regardless of your industry, the strategies in this course are based on core financial principles.

That said, you will be creating customized workflows and processes for your business. I will walk you through the process and you will use worksheets to develop a personalized plan that fits your individual business.

What if I miss a week of the course, will I still be able to follow along?

Yes! This is a self-paced course, which means you can work the course around your time needs and lifestyle. I do provide two suggested timelines for completing the course- a fast track option (3-months) and a slow and steady option (6-months). My only recommendation is that you do the lessons in order because they build off of each other.

How long do I have access to the course?

You have access to the course and all the bonuses for 12 months.

Why don’t I get life-time access?

Funny thing about money- people want to avoid it as much as possible. Which means you may be tempted to put off the course until ‘later’ which is never.

I know that you have the ability to totally rock your money, but in order to get there, you have to go through the course. Limiting your access to BABF helps you take action and get results. As a money person, I want to be absolutely sure you spend your money wisely and have a high return on your investment. You won’t see results unless you actually do the course.

12 months is the perfect amount of time to go through the course and implement changes with lots of time to optimize your financial system and revisit the lessons. Plus, knowing that your access is expiring will motivate you to get started sooner than later.

How is the course delivered (please tell me it’s not carrier pigeon)?

You’re in luck! I retired my carrier pigeon last year and now the course is delivered via video content (and supporting worksheet and spreadsheets) within the course site. You will receive instant access to all the course modules as soon as you purchase the course.

How much time do I need to commit to the course?

That depends on you! I provide two suggested timelines for completing the course. For the Fast Track option, I recommend you set aside 4-6 hours every week for the course so you can watch the video lessons and complete the worksheets and spreadsheets. For the Slow and Steady option, I recommend you set aside 1-2 hours every week so you can watch the video lessons and complete the worksheets and spreadsheets.

Do I need to buy any special software to take this course?

No! The entire course is hosted on an online course room platform which you can access from your phone, tablet, or computer. All you need to do is login! I offer all the spreadsheets as Excel files and as Google sheets, which is free. The worksheets can be printed out or filled out digitally so you don’t even need a printer to take this course.

We will talk about bookkeeping options and helpful in the course. I try to always mention at least one free option that you can start with.

What if I totally hate this- do you offer a refund?

I do! If this course isn’t your jam you can request a full refund within 60 days of purchasing the course.

I’m planning on hiring a bookkeeper- do I still need this?

You def need this. Hiring a bookkeeper is awesome BUT bookkeeping is only a small part of your finances. It’s like baking a cake- you have the flour but you still need all the other ingredients. Bookkeeping is the flour- this course teaches you how to add the other ingredients so you want to chow down on your money.

I haven’t launched my business yet- am I getting ahead of myself?

Nope! The earlier you start building healthy financial habits into your biz the more time and money you’ll save later. These aren’t one-time use skills, these are skills you will be using again and again as your business grows.

Eeeeeeeek money! What type of support will I get during the course?

You will receive access to the private Facebook  where you can ask me your questions and you can also ask me questions directly in the course room using the comments feature under each lesson. 

Is this course updated to reflect the new US tax laws?

Yes! Module 2 on tax deductions has been fully updated to reflect the new tax laws in the U.S. as of 2018.

Will the information still be relevant if I live outside of the U.S.?

Mostly, yes. The modules that may be slightly different in your country are Module 2- Tax Deductions and a few lessons from Module 3 about the difference between contractors and employees and filing 1099s. All other modules focus on healthy habits and systems which can be applied to any country.
