OLD – YES! Program

DMR Accounting, Entrepreneurs, Business development, leaps of faith, YES program, yearly entrepreneur success, entrepreneur support


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?




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.


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.


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.

Clients love working with Deidra

Sandra Musgrave, zocalo, DMR Client, YES Program, DMR Accounting, Fearless AccountingWe have used DMR Accounting at Memorial Software since 2016.


“While her knowledge of accounting principles for business management is impressive, it is her ability to explain and teach this to business owners that was such a wonderful surprise. She immediately grasped the complexities of our particular business and was able to teach sound accounting practices to us as well as the effective usability of our accounting software.”

  • Sandra M. Musgrave, Managing Director of Zocalo 2, LLC



allison shaaf, PrepDish, DMR Client, DMR Accounting and Consulting“Deidra took the time to get to know me and my business and finds solutions that fit my needs. She has helped me get to a place where I actually enjoy QuickBooks and am confident in my books and processes. She helps me implement systems that save me time and makes my accounting streamlined and efficient. Deidra is very professional and an expert at QuickBooks and at the same time is friendly and someone I genuinely look forward to seeing and working with. I highly recommend working with Deidra and DMR!”



katherine torrini, creative life spark, DMR Client, DMR accounting and consulting, fearless accounting, YES Program“I love having quarterly accountability meetings with Deidra because it encourages me to enter as much as I can before we meet. I love the monthly office hour call. It reminds me to keep up with bookkeeping tasks on a more regular basis and Deidra’s availability to answer pesky questions that pop up between our meetings is invaluable.”



cindy austin, Austin Empowered, DMR Client, DMR Accounting, fearless accounting, deidra ryan, YES Program


“Deidra had not only shown me what to do, she had taught me how to do it myself . . . and ahead of schedule! That’s an incredible gift! I am so grateful for her wealth of knowledge and experience.

If you want to experience the same sense of empowerment that I now have in dealing with my accounting, I highly recommend you set up some time to sit side by side with Deidra and discover how you, too, can gain confidence and a sense of peace around your own finances!”

We have used DMR Accounting at Memorial Software since 2016.

As a startup building software applications, we wanted to remain focused on the business aspects of our venture and were happy to find Deidra Ryan, from DMR Accounting & Consulting to help with our accounting needs. Deidra helped us set up our QuickBooks system, was there whenever we needed her to help with reconciliation, complicated Amazon seller accounting issues, and even some cross-border accounting concerns we had regarding transfer payments and transactions between our Canadian and U.S. entities.

Always a pleasure to work with and highly professional and knowledgeable, I would definitely recommend DMR Accounting for anyone’s accounting needs.  Their on-line appointment scheduling system was very convenient for planning our sessions and they even had some good bundled pricing packages that were perfect for our needs.

I will definitely continue to turn to DMR with my accounting needs for Memorial Software as well as any other venture I may be involved with in the future.
