STRESS-FREE BUSINESS FINANCES? 

(Yes, it IS possible!)

Business finances getting you down?  

You’re in business to change the world – or your small corner of it at least.  You know your “why”, you’ve invested in courses, you’ve worked on your mindset blocks, (oh, the mindset blocks!), and you’re committed to building a business that serves you and your family as well as your clients.

But the finances? That’s been a little more, well – challenging.

Oh, you know the money is important.  And you like it when it’s coming in (YAY for money coming in!)  

But there are things you feel like you “should know” – like:

  • “How and how much do I pay myself?  Or should I reinvest in the business?”
  • “What about taxes?  How much should I set aside?  And am I paying more than I need to?”
  • “What records do I need to keep?”
  • “What does a bookkeeper DO exactly, and how do I choose a good one?”

 

And there’s a not-so-small part of you that suspects there’s a much easier way to get your financial tasks done – like tracking, planning, scheduling, invoicing, filing taxes, or collecting late payments – you’re just not sure how, and you don’t have time to figure it out.

So the questions gnaw away in the back of your mind, and the list of tasks multiplies . . . and just thinking about it makes you want to crawl into bed and pull the covers up over your head.

It’s not just you.

I talk to small business owners every day who are confused about their business finances and frustrated with the time they’re spending, but they haven’t found a safe place to learn the basics, get their questions answered, and make things easier.

It’s time for a change. And you’re invited.

What could NOT knowing your business finances cost you?

Tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars lost to:

  • Extra taxes.
  • Bookkeeping mistakes.
  • Penalties from an audit or late tax payments.
  • Wasted employee time.
  • Lost profits. 
}

Years worth of time wasted on:

  • You or your team doing things manually.
  • Anxiety and sleepless nights.
  • Time away from family and friends.

 

Your business.

Businesses close every day because of money issues – either they run out or decide the stress of dealing with it isn’t worth it anymore.

(Then the rest of us lose out on the brilliance it would have brought to the world!)

Who am I, anyway?  😉

Hi – I’m Emily.

I’m a former government budget analyst turned bookkeeper and money coach who has helped governments, small businesses, couples, and individuals make their money easy for over 20 years.  

And now?  It’s time to bring this work to businesses in a way that works for more people.  Because too many businesses go out of business – usually because of money.

So, do you wanna join me in my mission, get your finances together, AND help me build a great course, all at a one-time beta price that will never be offered again?

This is a special, small-group experience, and I’m trusting that together we will gather the perfect people.  So if you’ve got business-owner friends who are ready to get their shit together, forward this on.  Seriously.  

Emily’s coaching was a key factor in transforming my business and money consciousness.  I was doing good work and felt bad that I did not understand how to make the finances work.  Her insightful questions and constant support in organizing my finances has turned me from being finance resistant to finance aware.  After one year I came to terms, after two years I doubled my income – yes because Emily helped me understand my money – going on the third year and I am tripling my income.  I now love to sit down and do my books, it’s a blast!

Emily is awesome!  Her work is amazing!

Emily at Clear Sky is amazing. I had a bit of an old mess to clean up and she helped me through it and helped ease my anxiety throughout it. Emily made my life SO much easier!! And every time she tells me to do something scary and I do it, I make more money! - Patti Abbott

Owner, Seattle Massage Oasis

Emily of Clear Sky Bookkeeping has been instrumental in making sure my business finances are in order. Unfortunately, some bookkeepers do not do what they say that they are going to do – and I found this out the hard way when Emily looked at my books and realized that my bookkeeper hadn’t done any work on them in over three months! She took the time with me to get to know my unique situation and multiple businesses and projects, fix what the other bookkeeper messed up, and then continue to keep everything organized and in line so that I can know what my financial picture is.

I would highly recommend Emily to any small business owner.

Owner, Organized Social Media and Home Key Organization

Working with Emily was powerful. It really transformed how I think about money and emboldened me to make changes I’d been thinking about for years but never felt up to. She made me excited to engage with my income and spending and to try new approaches and habits with both . . . Emily is a truth-teller who will help you get right with your dough. I only wish I’d used her services years ago! - Rachel Carey Debusk

Owner, Unstill Life

Working with Emily has changed the way I feel about money. She has taken the confusion and emotion out of the equation, and I am finally feeling as if I have power over my finances instead of the other way around. Emily truly understands a person’s relationship to money…whether it be emotional, practical, or even spiritual.

I have a clearer view of my financial future and the possibilities than I have ever had.

Value: Over $2000 in bookkeeping services!

How much is all this fabulous money freedom, you ask?

FAQs

Is the cost of the course tax deductible as a business expense?

Yep!  You will be learning about your business finances, so it’s an education expense. 🙂

Will you be teaching us how to do bookkeeping?

I will not be teaching how to use bookkeeping software (Quickbooks, Xero, Freshbooks, etc) in this course, but we will talk about how bookkeeping works, and how to run reports if you already have your books in one of those systems.  

However, I WILL have a Quick and Dirty bookkeeping mini-course as a bonus, so if you currently have no bookkeeping done for 2019 or want to keep your books in a spreadsheet for 2020, you can get your numbers together in no time (and without hours of typing!)  🙂  I do teach people to use bookkeeping software privately, so if you’re interested – email me at emily@emilyzillig.com for more details.

How much time will this take each week?

As I’ll be building this beta course as we go (based partly on your feedback!), I don’t know exactly how long the video training for each week will be, but the goal is less than half an hour per week. The time to do the exercises will vary slightly as well, depending on the week.

My intention is that you can have everything completed in an hour and a half to two hours, broken into chunks (depending on how focused you are!)

Will the Q&A calls be recorded if I can't make it live?

YES!  They will be uploaded into the training portal after the sessions. You can also submit questions via email and I’ll answer on the call.

Is there a guarantee or money-back policy?

No – this course is non-refundable.  As I’m sure you know from working with your own clients, everyone’s commitment to taking the steps is different, and the results will vary depending on you, your business, and how much you implement.  

 

How long will I have access to the content?

For as long as I continue to offer it, including all future updates and improvements! You will be helping me create it, after all! 😉

What if I'm not in the United States - will this still help?

Yes! The only thing that won’t apply to you will be the specifics about your tax laws. But once you take this course and know how money works and feel more confident about your money in general, you’ll be able to have productive conversations with your local tax professional and get those questions answered!

So tell me . . . are you in?  🙂
