who we are
Rachel Smith Your Bookkeeper's Coach
I understand that financial pressure can be a huge stressor for small business owners. I’ve made it my purpose to ease that anxiety by helping non-accountants within the construction industry to understand their numbers.
10 years of corporate accounting experience, complemented by a B.A. in Business Administration (Accounting) from the University of Washington – help me to do just that.
As a future-focused, problem-solver I bring guts and creativity to your small business challenges. Believe me when I say I have the passion and ability to bring your financials back-to-life.
It may sound a little clichéd, but I’m responsible, accountable, dependable and reliable. I’m driven to do things right.
I'm positive about tomorrow. I get my energy from pushing myself and others to new heights. I'm all about streamlining routine processes to make more time for analyzing numbers and generating meaningful data for strategic decision-making.
I care about my clients. I believe in solid, genuine and mutually rewarding relationships. I have unwavering faith in my own strengths and abilities, I trust my instincts and have confidence in my judgment. This makes me the perfect fit for emerging small businesses.
I’m a financial consultant and trusted advisor to the small business owner and financial coach to their in-house bookkeeper.
Although South Africa has my heart, my feet are firmly grounded in Seattle. Come rain or shine, you will find me outdoors exploring the PNW with my dog, Syd.
My role at YBC is to protect the premises, bark at all people and animals, and get Rachel outside as much as possible. I work for peanut butter, cheese, and bully sticks.
