Me

I decided Accounting was my career in High School. I ended up graduating with my Bachelors of Science majoring in Accounting from Lake Erie College in 2011 (small private school near Cleveland, Ohio). From there I worked in a few financial analysis and bookkeeping roles for the Auto Repair and Security Alarm industries. During that time I did some minor real estate analysis.

I didn't make it long working in a normal office setting and after a few years I decided to go out on my own. There were some twists and turns, but I landed on the sites called elance and Upwork, which is where my skills were truly developed in relation to financial models. I took any possible job that I could find in Excel and Google Sheets. This helped me learn about clever logic structuring required to build useful things for planning and decision making. I still am fairly active on Upwork even today.

My focus and expertise started with building real estate templates / cash flow waterfalls. Over time it was natural to also build general startup financial models as well as helpful business logic / tools. By taking on 100's of jobs on Upwork, my skills just kept getting more refined and I became more and more efficient as well as knowledgeable about what is helpful. My Accounting background helped with a general understanding of financial statements and generally accepted norms of this space.

In the middle of everything that was going on, I decided to build smarthelping.com and list templates that I thought would be useful. What you see here now is the culmination of many 1,000's of hours of work and even more thought. I plan to do this for the rest of my life. I love it.

Need to Reschedule?

As long as you reschedule 12 hours or more prior to the meeting start, that is fine. If you cancel / reschedule within 12 hours of the meeting start time, there are no refunds and you would have to buy another consultation credit.

Note, this 30 minute consultation doesn't guarantee I will do any modeling request. It is just to talk. Any unused time can be applied to the actual work that is to be done, if any.
