In our current podcast series, I interview the owners of 4 very different financial businesses and we dive deep into their marketing.
Today’s episode is the third of that series. I interview Ashley Waychoff, founder of Pretty Penny Accounting.
As Ashley says, “numbers are her thing”. And the truth is, they aren’t all business owners’ thing.
That’s where her accounting firm comes in! Ashley and her team offer bookkeeping and financial advisory services to give business owners financial clarity, confidence in their numbers, and a system for organization and compliance.
In this episode, Ashley shares the twists and turns on her journey to becoming a business owner. And she explains what’s working well in the marketing of her business.
“Understanding the financial side of a business is just as important to a business’s success as the quality of what they sell, their customer service, or even their marketing strategy.” – Ashley Waychoff
