Are your business finances a mess? Avoiding a shoebox of receipts that you just KNOW is going to come back to haunt you in April 2018? Don’t worry, you’re not alone!

A recent survey conducted by Intuit QuickBooks found that the number one stressor for Canadian small business owners is their finances. The good news is that it doesn’t have to feel this way. Finance can be fun!

Take the first step towards financial fearlessness and join us for a full-day hands-on workshop with Ernst & Young Chartered Professional Accountant and small business owner, Lisa Zamparo.

In this workshop you’ll learn her process, designed for women business owners, to get your receipts out of the shoebox and into an accounting system. It’s easy to implement and takes less than an hour a week! She’ll also show you how to interpret the end results - your financial statements - so that you can feel confident talking to your accountant at tax time.

Since the best way to learn is by doing, there’s lot of time for you to get sh*t done. Process your business expenses, catch up on invoicing, and finally know how your business is doing profit-wise. All with an accountant by your side.

Run into a tech problem? No need to call tech support cuz who has time for that?! Lisa is an expert in Xero, Quickbooks, Freshbooks and Wave, and can help you right there on the spot.

Enjoy a gourmet pizza lunch courtesy of Panago Pizza and end the day with a glass of bubbly. Let’s make your finances fancy, fearless & fun!

What does Lisa bring?

Hi, I’m Lisa! I’m a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) providing money, business and tax advice to freelancers & small businesses. My speciality is helping new entrepreneurs build profitable businesses that support their health, wealth and happiness - which I call “wellth” - and earn their first six-figures of revenue.

Historically, women have not had support and experience in managing our finances. Our lack of confidence can make us procrastinate about money matters - which ends up making the stress even worse! This isn’t because we can’t manage money. We just need to be taught how.

That’s what I’m about: helping women understand the language of finance, develop systems and processes to manage their money, and feel confident and wellthy!
