A financial workflow to know your data and numbers at any given time
TAKE CALCULATED STEPS
Money management is not taught. I have such a heart for this. I teach small businesses how to make decisions based on financial data, and I show households how to run their homes like a business. I'm here to break down concepts that perhaps seem overwhelming and make them simple. I'm here to teach and empower you to be the strong CEO of your life or business.
From a young age, I've had a love of numbers, balance, and just making decisions on data. I've taken so many risks, but they've always been calculated.
I've built online retail companies that have seen 7-figure sales within a year. I have also built and sold companies for 7 figures. I have also, in the same breath, down-throttled companies in economic turns, shut down projects due to margins to justify action, and have had to stay very dialed in the proforma to ride waves of dryness to make it.
From a personal perspective, I didn't start running my home like my business until my early thirties. I found myself a single mom and the head household. Owning a home, always doing projects for that home, being an entrepreneur of multiple companies, and being head of household was a new weight I had to learn to carry. I could continue forging a path for myself and my kids by knowing my numbers. Driving us to a place of freedom.
Knowing your numbers and making decisions toward a financially free future is how it is done, and I know what it is like personally to feel the drive and pressure and I want to teach and empower you!
Offering both online courses and in-person. Guaranteeing this knowledge will change your life.

Do something more than once and create a template for it! I have a love of Excel, and I am big on making calculated decisions. You do that by knowing your numbers and your data. This is an essential simple document I use as a STARTing point for company projects, startups, builds, and even home projects. I primarily use it in Google Drive to create collaborative documents to work with others. You just upload it to use in Google Drive. Below is an Excel file for you to use as a starting point in Excel or to upload to Google Drive.

What qualifies me?
I love business. How the interworkings all work together and how a simple idea with enough heart can turn into your life. It's like a game…and if you play it right, you can scale up and gain freedom via your profits. But you have to understand the moving parts and be informed in order to make the right decisions. You CAN do what you love and are called to do through providing a service or product for others, while at the same time having a comfortable lifestyle. I believe my life, journey, and gifts are meant to help others find that freedom through organized efforts and operations.
I have sold multiple entities in various categories and still actively run four companies. I have also sold companies for face value, launched ideas that didn't work, and lost thousands. All part of the journey and plan. But I can speak about scaling companies to seven figures in one year, and I also can speak about seeing and deciding when it is time to let go.
I LOVE the idea that at the drop of a hat, we can take control of our lives, create change, and take control of our schedule and our destiny by creating our own businesses. Business ownership though is not for the faint of heart. It takes understanding, organization, and focused efforts to make it. 45% of businesses fail in the first five years, and I believe many leave so much money on the table by not running their marketing or operations efficiently. A big piece is not understanding their numbers and profits and where to put their efforts, and that is where I know I can help!
I am at a place in my life where I know my many years of varied experience are meant to be utilized to help others succeed. You don’t know what you don’t know, and I can guarantee that by being part of theSTARTapproach, I will help you make the right decisions, and save you time and money. We have designed a program to help you START and APPROACH your business like you never have before!
"Kristy's Start Knowing Your Numbers course was amazing!! The format of how it was taught and broken up into the different sections help make it manageable to get through and go back through and review when needed. I myself am also very analytical and like knowing exactly where I am with my numbers so this course was helpful in filling in the gaps I was not sure about! "

"Thanks to this course, we were able to save WAY more than needed to make the move easily and then quickly turn around and buy our first home in Northern Colorado in our mid-twenties (which was a HUGE deal given the housing market towards the end of 2021."
COURT, STUDENT START KNOWING MY NUMBERS BUSINESS COURSE
"Knowing my numbers" is something that has always seemed intimidating to me - especially when I was in a lot of debt. Kristy makes numbers so much less scary, and I've gone from feeling clueless to confident in one short weekend after taking this course. I'm ready to be a lot smarter and more strategic about saving for my future home and retirement. I WISH I KNEW THIS 10 YEARS AGO."
