I know how confusing and intimidating business financials can be—especially combined with all the rest on your plate.

That’s why I want to help you understand and feel good about your business finances.

I’m Erin Armstrong, an Enrolled Agent, and a Small Business Tax & Money Coach for Entrepreneurs.

Since 2011, I’ve helped hundreds of small business owners, creatives & freelancers make sense of their business financials, maximize their tax deductions, and make empowered, confident financial decisions.

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

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 small 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 often 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 that’s ok!)
  • I believe your financial priorities and goals should always be front and center.

My Background

In my late teens and early twenties, I ran two creative businesses that piqued my interest in small business accounting and tax deductions…

Back then, I got a lot of confusing, vague, and often contradictory information from colleagues and professional tax filers when it came to best accounting practices and tax deductions for creative businesses.

I’m a little bit of a nerd (my husband would say it’s more than a little bit!). So when I couldn’t find the answers, I started doing my own research. I spent a lot of my free time studying business accounting, reading IRS Publications, Notices and Bulletins, and even reading court opinions from tax law cases. I’ve always had an analytical side, but in the process of doing this research, it really came out in full force.

By 2010, I was a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and a Certified Bookkeeper. In 2012, I started a full-service accounting company in Los Angeles, and for the next five years I served hundreds of clients who were based in California as well as in 7 other states. My clients ranged from solopreneurs bringing in $30k per year to larger companies with yearly gross incomes of over $5 million.

In 2016, I created my first online course and I began speaking at conferences and events for entrepreneurs. In 2017, I transitioned my business from an accounting company to a company that focuses on financial education, tax planning, courses and speaking.

Even though I’ve had a diverse clientele, my heart has always remained with helping small, creative businesses and freelancers.

Because I believe that if everyone actually understood the tax stuff, many more people would choose to work for themselves.

Erin is absolutely incredible!  Seriously.
