About

I know how overwhelming your business finances can be—especially combined with all the rest on your plate.

That’s why I want to help you understand and feel great about #AllTheBusinessMoneyThings.

I’m Erin Armstrong, a Virtual CFO, Business Tax & Money Coach, & licensed Enrolled Agent for Entrepreneurs.

Since 2011, I’ve helped hundreds of small business owners, entrepreneurs, creatives & coaches make sense of all their business accounting stuff, maximize their tax savings, and make empowered, confident financial decisions.

You see, when you grow your understanding of your business finances,

You start working work from a place of POWER and LIGHT.

And that gives you undeniable peace, confidence & security.
(And, in many cases, more money in your pocket!)

  • I believe in knowing the law and using it to your advantage. The tax code does not purely benefit big corporations. There are many different tax advantages that can apply to businesses of all kinds.
  • I believe you need a clear picture of your business’ financial situation. This is the only way you can make the best financial decisions for your business. And, truthfully, it’s eventually the difference between continuing to follow your passion or eventually closing shop.
  • I believe your ability to make good money decisions is connected to your emotions. And not only is that OK, it is tremendously helpful when these emotions are acknowledged and addressed.
  • I believe your financial priorities and goals should always be front and center.
