Erin Armstrong | About | Business Advisor, CFO & Tax Strategist

 If you’re looking to ensure your business is thriving & on a sustainable long-term path,

I’m Erin Armstrong,

a Business Advisor, Chief Financial Officer, & Licensed Tax Strategist rolled into one.

Since 2011, I’ve directly helped hundreds of small & medium-sized business owners:

  • Build strong financial foundations
  • Significantly grow their revenue & profits
  • Maximize their tax savings
  • Implement strategic operational processes, and
  • Confidently make empowered, sustainable and forward-thinking decisions.

I Believe…

  • I believe that profit, not growth, is the most important marker of your business’ financial health. It doesn’t do you any good you to increase your sales, or to move into a bigger space, or to hire more employees if your profit does not also grow. If you want to scale, I’ll make sure your business does this in a strategic way that ensures profitability. And, if you want to significantly increase your profit without significant growth, I’ve successfully helped dozens of businesses increase their profit by 200-600% without increasing sales. 
  • I believe in a comprehensive, holistic approach to business finances & operations. The financial & operational components of your business (such as revenue streams, legal structure, employee ROI, accounting practices, tax strategy, cash flow, sales processes, etc.) are all interrelated and affect each other. I help clients strategically deal with these different components in a coordinated way, and I help them understand the interplay and connection between all the financial pieces.
  • I believe in knowing tax law—and using it to your advantage. Here in the United States, tax laws (and IRS regulations) are very friendly to small and medium-sized businesses—not just to large corporations. Regardless of what kind of business you own, there are tax benefits and strategies that you should be taking advantage of. (I’ll help you learn about them and use them!)
  • I believe in focusing on your specific priorities and goals. Your business goals can be influenced by many factors, including your work style, your personal or family lifestyle, and your short and long-term financial needs. I never use a cookie-cutter approach when creating a business financial plan—your goals always remain front and center.
  • I believe your money mindset can affect your ability to make good financial decisions. Negative beliefs or emotions related to money can have a detrimental impact on your business. If your money mindset is holding you back in our work together, I’ll help you start shifting to one that is proactive, forward thinking, and empowered.
  • And, finally, I believe you shouldn’t apply “corporate” business strategies to small businesses. Most business financial advice (in books, courses, MBA programs, etc.) is geared toward large companies, and it usually prioritizes growth above everything else. But, if you’re like most business owners, you are probably trying to balance several different goals simultaneously, such as making your business more profitable, paying yourself more, spending more quality time with friends and family, or doing more of the type of work that personally inspires you.

A little more about me…

I’ve been happily married for 15 years. My husband works as a first responder.

We have an awesome 8-year-old daughter who loves climbing trees, making her own tea, and thinking of new tricks to teach our dogs.

I graduated from Pepperdine University magna cum laude. Pepperdine’s campus is in Malibu, CA, overlooking the ocean—this inspired my love of being on the water, but it also made it difficult to get any work done!
I typically read well over 100 books per year (usually a mix of business books, biographies, and random non-fiction).

Gardening is my antidote for too much time spent on the computer. I love growing all kinds of flowers, but roses are my favorite (I have over 20 different varieties of roses in my garden).

I love paddleboarding and canoeing on our local lake. One of our family goals is to canoe on all 15 of the major rivers in Texas.

Are you ready to work from a place of financial empowerment?

It’s never too late or too early to strategically improve the financial outlook of your business.

(And, in fact, as your business grows and changes, it’s often important to revisit this again!)
