Great Results Personable High Integrity

Jan 27, 2011

“My company, TorranceLearning, and I began working with Debra in August of this year as we were beginning to outgrow our current accounting and bookkeeping set-up. We were at the point where we needed to add metrics and support for decision-making into our financial management picture. Debra started by helping me to define my vision for my company and for my life. Debra then helped us organize (and simplify!) our accounts and build some checks and balances into our day-to-day processes. Once things were cleaned up – which gave her a very good sense for how our business works – she and I went to town defining a few key metrics and setting processes in place for calculating them quickly, without a lot of extra work. All this with an eye to the original vision. Debra has trained individual team members at TorranceLearning, and she’s conducted an all-hands training session as well as we begin the process of opening our books to the entire team. Throughout the process, Debra has been a trusted advisor, sensible sounding board, and devoted fan. It’s not unusual for Debra to send encouraging & inspiring emails to keep me on the path to my goals. I wholeheartedly recommend Debra to my fellow entrepreneurs!”
