This time of year, many small business and agency owners think about taxes, and I wanted to share my experience with an amazing accounting and tax professional, John Leland.

I’ve been working with John for 6 years, and in that time John has proven to not only understand the small business/entrepreneurship space, but the non-profit/church space as well. John’s company, The Honest Accountant, is a full-service CPA firm that provides expert services to founders and CEOs. This can range from entity creation to accounting system setups/clean-ups, monthly accounting work, outsourced CFO, taxes and more.

I recommend John Leland often; that’s the highest compliment I can give. If you’re looking for an accounting or tax professional, reach out to John. He’s the real deal.


Has this year been different so far from last year? Or more of the same? Are you breaking old habits and sticking with new ones?

How can you get out of your own way and take steps to become the leader that your team and your company need you to be? It’s not just going to happen. It takes intentionality. And that’s where coaching comes in.

As an Executive Coach specializing in Mindset and Leadership, I work with entrepreneurs, founders, executives, and C-suite leaders who want to become catalytic in their leadership. Through 1:1 coaching, my clients move from where they are (stuck) to where they want to be.

For May, I currently have availability to take on 2 new clients. I don’t accept every person who approaches me about coaching; in fact, I turn down those who I believe are not ready or a good fit for what I do. If you’d like to explore whether Executive Coaching is your next step toward the impact you want to make, let’s talk. No hard sales pitch. If it’s not right for both of us, I’ll tell you so. My goal is to help leaders get out of their own way, stop breaking their own businesses and teams, and move into being catalytic in their impact and their legacy. If you’re ready, book a time for us to talk.


If you want to learn more about developing a healthy mindset, leading your team with excellence and intentionality, and overcoming the chaos you’re facing and finding the calmness you need, here are some ways you can take your next step:

1) You can subscribe to The Catalytic Leadership Podcast, where I interview entrepreneurs, agency and business owners, and leaders who share their wisdom and insights about their journey, leading teams, achieving business goals, conquering overworking and overthinking, healthy and effective communication, the catalytic mindset, and more. Choose the platform you like and subscribe to the show!

2) You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to watch the podcast interviews instead of just listening to them.

3) You can purchase a copy of my newest book, Catalytic Leadership: 12 Keys to Becoming an Intentional Leader Who Makes a Difference. (available in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook). I captured 12 key principles that I’ve seen consistently in the thousands of coaching conversations I’ve had with hundreds of leaders over the last 25+ years.

4) You can book a call if you’d like my help with either 1:1 coaching for you, or help coaching and developing your team into the high-performance team you know it can be. I provide 1:1 coaching for entrepreneurs, founders, agency owners, and leaders, and provide group coaching for teams.
