Hey there! Lydia here. Welcome back to our She Knows Her Numbers Blog series!
This year, I really want to dive into the idea that you can understand your numbers. I thought the best way to show you this is to give you examples of real women business owners who are taking imperfect steps to know and understand their numbers.
This week, I’ll be featuring Megan with Fais2Vill! Her answers are incredibly helpful and practical, so let’s get right to it!
Without further ado, here is Megan!
I am a wife and mom from Iowa. I graduated with my master’s in accounting and started my career in public accounting. I currently still work full time at a public accounting firm and I have been running my own virtual bookkeeping business just over a year now! I help small business owners organize their numbers and monitor the financial health of their business.
