Bachelor’s degree in hand, I stepped into the big, wild world of adulting in 2011 and promptly found myself wondering,
With a borderline obsessive love of all things color coded and organizational, I spend my days creating education and resources to help creative entrepreneurs just like you streamline your business and maximize efficiency so you can spend time on the things that matter most to you in this one wild and precious life.
There had to be more than 5am wake up calls, gray cubicle walls, and absolutely no natural light.
Plain and simple, numbers and money were a frequent conversation in the house growing up, and from some of my earliest memories, my dad would build spreadsheets of rather epic proportions.
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure when or how that shifted. Maybe it was a conversation with my dad where he started showing me some of the ins and outs of a spreadsheet he'd built. Maybe it was when I realized spreadsheets could be used for so much more than just organizing numbers. Whenever it happened, at some point, spreadsheets and I became super tight.
My dad has been one of my biggest supporters throughout my entire life and he's still the first person I call when I'm having an issue with a spreadsheet I can't figure out.
They're not quite that, but they are a heck of a lot more than some powerful organizational tool. They're more than a nerdy tool accountants use, they're more than a boring and outdated program.
I certainly don't expect spreadsheets to ever be that for you, but I do hope they aid you in spending less time on the organizational areas they help you with and more time on the stuff you do love, the stuff you do care about that will lead to those memories and connection points with the ones you love.
