This week we are featuring
Courtney Lens with Numbers & Such Prof. LLC
Q & A Time featuring Courtney:
How long have you been in business?
Been in accounting for over 8 years, but started my own company 3 months ago
What is your business all about?
Accounting! I provide business consulting, bookkeeping and payroll services, individual and business tax preparation, and other accounting support activities
What makes your business unique?
My personality and how I maintain relationships
What made you start your business?
Multiple things but mostly the need to be my own boss so I can provide the services I want at the pricing I want and to call all the shots on all other aspects in between
What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful business owner?
Drive/determination, top notch client/customer service, financial management skills
What three pieces of advice would you give to someone who wants to launch their own business?
Use every moment strategically-you are selling yourself and services always, even somewhere as simple as in the grocery checkout line; know your goals and figure out a way to reach them instead of throwing in the towel; be unique, be you
Who has been your greatest inspiration? Or what book has inspired you the most? Or what is your favorite book?
I love to read and Harry Potter is definitely my favorite books so I cannot say he helped inspire me. I don’t have one real inspiration. I’d say the business owners I know and deal with on a regular basis have shown me so much that they helped make the decision to start a business pretty easy. I have met so many awesome people over the years.
How do you conquer those moments of doubt that so often stifle or trip up or stop so many?
I do not exactly have those doubt moments. I have a self confidence knowing that I provide a unique experience and know there are enough people in the world that need accounting services so I will be just fine. I am very driven.
