Tell us about yourself?

I am a CPA, CA, with a Master’s degree in Professional Accounting. I’m also a tech nerd. I’ve seen clients struggle with their monthly bookkeeping for 20 years … so I decided to build a company to make it easy and effortless to keep their books up-to-date.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

I would tell myself to spend more time with my family, to take deep breaths more often, and to really not sweat the small stuff.

What problem does your business solve?

We help small businesses stay on top of their books and their monthly finances so they can move their businesses forward and focus on the things they like doing and are good at.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

I’d seen small business owners and managers struggle to keep on top of their books and finances for 20 years. I wanted to develop a company where we could do this for them while making it LESS work for them.

What is your magic sauce?

Our knowledge of technology combined with our outgoing, motivated, and caring bookkeepers is what sets us apart from the competition. Plus, we’ve been there (on the entrepreneur side), so we understand what they’re going through.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

Our goal is to change the lives of 1,000 people and businesses by bringing TenjaGo to them, helping them stay ahead of the financial game.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Finding the right people (right attitude, right determination) as well as building the processes so that we could scale.

How can people get involved?
