Yet, 

discussions about finance and accounting often bring up feelings of shame and embarrassment.

Avoiding your QuickBooks or accounting software?  Or don’t even use any?

Feel like you’re “faking it” with your financials?

Too embarrassed to ask money questions because it seems like the answer is obvious, or maybe you will get an answer you don’t like?

SAY YES! TO YOUR SUCCESS

Now is your opportunity to push past the bogus thoughts that you are not smart enough to understand your business' finances.

Know Your Numbers

Your financial numbers impact your profits. Do you know the most important numbers that every emerging and growing business owner needs to know? Understanding the story behind your numbers can make or break your business’ long-term success.

 

See Opportunities

You may be missing opportunities to expand and grow your business. Do you know what is possible when you can confidently share your numbers with potential partners, bankers, and investors?

Discover Problems Faster

It might surprise you to learn how many business owners are secretly intimidated by their accounting and finances!

About 20% of small businesses fail in their first year and 50% fail in their fifth year. Of those who fail, about 29% were due to running out of cash. (Source: CB Insights)

The further along you are, the harder it can be to admit what you don’t know!

 

Identify Your Direction

You can predict the future of your business by using your finances. Do you know what actions make a difference for your business profits?

Deidra Ryan, DMR Accounting, Fearless accounting, finance consulting

 

Deidra Ryan, founder of DMR Accounting & Consulting and Fearless Accounting, is on a mission to demystify accounting and replace “embarrassed” and “intimidated“ with “confident” and “empowered” when it comes to your personal and small business finances.

 

Before working with Deidra, many of her clients avoided looking at their numbers, either consciously or unconsciously.

 

They were afraid of asking the hard questions because the answer might be no!  No to their big plans or no to their dreams. No to the business they worked so hard to build!

 

 

Deidra’s approach freed them of these fears and opened up new opportunities to feel empowered by their own accounting and finances.

SUPPORT FOR FEARLESS ENTREPRENEURS

The first step is always to get the basics cleaned up, streamlined, and systematized. The true power of accounting is actually building a strong financial foundation that supports your vision, plans, and dreams.

Get the support and education you need to succeed
It’s easy to improve your business decisions and increase your efficiency when you can identify what is most important in your financials. You can rely on Deidra’s knowledge, expertise, and integrity to guide you in managing your business’ financial future.

Set a spending plan for improving your business
While traditional accounting work is priced at an hourly rate, this program gives you the freedom of knowing exactly what to expect. Rather than be surprised at the end of the month, you can predict and budget the cost of working on your business to grow and improve. Trust us, investing in yourself will be one of the best things you will ever do!

 

This Program Is NOT…

  • A “Set it and Forget it” approach to accounting. It is a structure for supporting you to handle your own accounting work.
  • A DFY (Done For You) solution. While DMR Accounting offers bookkeeping services, that is not what this program is about.
  • A program for bookkeepers and financial staff. If you are in need of this kind of service, Deidra provides training for organizations. Please schedule an "Are We a Fit?" meeting to discuss your options. However, this YES! program is designed for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

YES! PROGRAM

We’ve designed our Year-round Entrepreneur Success Package to provide more structure, accountability, and predictability for your entire business - especially in your bookkeeping, accounting, and administrative functions.

One-on-One Sessions

These are private sessions with Deidra that run up to 2 hours long (either in person or virtual).

Use this time to get support with creating a regular rhythm in your bookkeeping and reports.

You will know how to identify which timely financial reports are needed for you to be the best leader you can be. This structure also helps you face the dreaded procrastination bug!

Sessions are NOT transferable from one period to the next.

 

Monthly Office Hour Calls

Use these office hour calls for your as-needed additional support. Join the call to ask accounting, finance, and business questions in a safe and confidential environment. You may be surprised by the insights you can gain from other people's questions and shared experiences. Plus, you can celebrate your successes!

Group calls are the second Thursday of every month from 10:00 - 11:00 am CST. These calls are recorded for later viewing in case you are unable to join the live call.

 

Private Facebook Group for Entrepreneur Community

A private Facebook group is setup as a third place for you to stay connected and get the support you need all year long. It's a great place to share your successes and wins, post useful resources, and access recordings of the group calls.

Are You Building a Support System for Yourself?

This time of year and into January is a very busy season for most of us both professionally and personally. To prepare for the coming weeks, I’d like to offer a few suggestions for you to maintain balance during a time that can feel overwhelming.

The foundation for true success in business is self-care and the support system you create for yourself. Where is your business if you are not in good health? It is imperative that you to take care of yourself in order to keep revenues flowing and clients / customers happy.

As I look back, one of the first ways I began to incorporate self-care was to get a housekeeper. Returning to a clean home after a long day at work meant I could spend time with my family or working on my own business. It was a small, but consistent, way to give myself some space and time for relaxation and reflection. I would have otherwise spent this valuable time and energy cleaning rather than working on what is most important to me.

Physical Support

What is one small way that you can give yourself more support? The idea of a housekeeper may seem high-end, but perhaps it’s possible through a trade-off. What if your daily Starbuck’s treat could be pared down to once a week? That opens up $20 a week for you to put towards something that offers more lasting effects.

When I first started my business, I did most everything on my own. I was still employed at another firm for the first year while my venture began. After many years of building my own practice, I got to a place where I could begin outsourcing. One thing I sorely needed was an update to my home office. (My home office allows me to better balance my family and work roles.) This is where I spend a good portion of my day and where clients come for in-person meetings, so it is about both self-care and having a professional setting in which to work.

Instead of trying a makeshift solution by asking an employee to help me improve and organize, I invested in a professional decorator and a professional organizer. Both professionals helped me sort through the clutter that had built up, and together we created a beautiful space I can be proud of and gives both me and my clients a relaxing, peaceful setting to make work enjoyable.

There are many other ways for you to create a personal and professional support system – these often complement each other. It could be a book club, a professional group or creative circle such as Carolyn Scarborough. It could mean investing in a marketing professional or creative coach.

Mental and Emotional Support

Are you surrounding yourself with positive people and energy? It makes a huge difference in your overall outlook. I remember sharing with someone that I joined a belly-dancing class, and they commented that I must be doing it to lose weight. While I was hurt that the first thing they considered was weight loss, I responded with the truth. I chose this class because it was relaxing, different, and a whole lot of FUN! I joined it so I could feel better and try something new.

Make a mental note of the naysayers around you. Be aware of underhanded compliments. The highly critical person may think they sound really smart, but they are really lacking in emotional intelligence. They are draining you of good positive energy. I challenge you to consider moving away from those with energy draining ways.

Also, be aware of negative self-talk. It is sometimes more detrimental because it comes from within.

Surround yourself with positivity, and find places where you can spread a positive outlook with others as well.

A few questions to ask: Are you offering those around you thoughtful, constructive commentary? Are you the positive energy that draws people in and supports them and gets this support yourself? Perhaps you are the one who needs to adjust your language to be more uplifting and solution-oriented? As Mahatma Gandhi famously said, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

Accordingly, you are what you attract…here is a clever 7 step illustrated process of How to Use the Law of Attraction to gain more positive energy into your life.

Create Support Systems for Yourself

Remember that YOU are the center of your business, and not the product or service provided. What is good for you is ultimately good for your company growth and development. Creating a support system for yourself is ultimately good for the success of your company.

Your support system is based on your needs – from your physical space or physical body to your emotional balance and spirituality. Reflect on what you may need to keep joy and balance in your life, because it is what will keep the business running.

I’m a huge proponent of self-care, and I have worked hard to incorporate these concepts into my work and life. This concept of creating a self-care system was first introduced to me by life balance coach and speaker, Renee Trudeau. I’ve attended her retreats, and the ideas really resonated with me. Renee shares her self-care practices on her website and through events. In a post from earlier this year, she talked about the 5 Self-Care Practices for Uncertain Times.

Spread the Holiday Cheer with Self-Care

As we head into the holidays, consider if you are surrounding yourself with positive energy and positive people. We live in a society that rarely stops to reflect and demands instant feedback or response. From a professional standpoint, that can create stress and anxiety and ultimately detract from your greater purpose. Caring for yourself is truly the first choice in caring for your business and your clients.

Happy Holidays. Wishing you much peace, love and prosperity now and in the new year!
