Total Boss      Pricing Ninja      Creative Incite Sessions

Ain’t it about time you were the Total BOSS
of your business numbers?

You’re a smart cookie, so OF COURSE you should be able to figure out that bookkeeping software you bought. I mean it’s not rocket science, right?

You’re a bad-ass who’s good at everything, and of course we live in the Great Era of DIY, so of course you want to do your books yourself.

You’re a busy business owner with a million things on her plate, and you’ll get to your books eventually.  

You’re kind of embarrassed that your financial shit isn’t in order and just keep putting it off.

You’re pretty sure there might be a better way to make spending decisions than just relying on the balance you can see in your checking account on-line.

You’re sick of waking up in the middle of the night wondering why you’re Hustling so hard and still just not making enough. What. The. Hell?

{take a deep breath}
Let’s fix this.
’Cause we totally can.

Rather than feeling stressed or vulnerable or bad about the state of your business numbers, wouldn’t it be great to feel, instead, the calm, confidence and power that come when:

  • your numbers are clean, and you are able to easily read the story they’re telling.
  • your decisions are based on actual data about what’s really happening in your business (what’s selling, what isn’t, what’s earning for you, whether your pricing is right, etc.).
  • you can answer basic financial questions about your business with confidence, such as what are my margins? Am I making any money?
  • you have a clear and measurable plan.

Now THAT is what I call being the Total BOSS of your business numbers.

Give yourself the gift of tackling this thing you’ve been avoiding. Make your day-to-day immeasurably better for yourself. AND, into the bargain, throw this: business coaching to help you tackle other big issues in your business that you’ve been too busy to handle on your own. What? These are heights of Total BOSS that you need to scale!


Before working with Ariane, I was a mess (and I didn't even know how much of a mess)! I went from keeping a basic record of my income in spreadsheets, to knowing exactly how much I was making, spending, and where it was all going. I would recommend it (and have!) to any small business owner I know. Professional bookkeeping is literally the single most valuable thing I've done for my business in the last year.

Total BOSS includes:

  • Monthly reconciliations of all your bank and credit card accounts.
  • Standard Monthly Report Package explained to you in plain English, no Accounting degree required.
  • Monthly 60-minute check-in call to discuss reports, results, projections, and to deliver accountability and coaching on Profit First implementation.
  • On-going training and support on financial reports – which ones to rely on, what they mean, how to use them – and in how best to leverage the power of Quickbooks Online for your business.
  • On-going analysis and coaching in the areas of pricing, revenue, owner compensation and profit.
  • Email support throughout the month with same-day response time.
  • Quickbooks Online Plus and Hubdoc subscriptions for the duration of the engagement.
  • Annual preparation of 1099s.
  • Annual coordination with CPA/tax preparer at tax-time.

Before I hired Ariane, I thought I could do this myself. I’m a decently-smart business person, and very organized. What was going to be so hard about tracking my income and expenses and preparing for taxes? I was wrong. It’s a nightmare that I don’t want to deal with. Too many details to manage. As a result of working with Ariane, I’ve got peace of mind (priceless) that my financial affairs are in order for my business. Now, I know someone else is helping me, as a solo-preneur, watch the bottom line. She is easy-going, non-judgmental, optimistic and a great communicator. Ariane is excellent at explaining certain bookkeeping principles to a non-accounting mindset.

What’s it cost?

Total BOSS begins at $750/month. Your price is determined by the size and complexity of your business, and by whether you might also need other add-on services -- specialized reporting, greater than monthly frequency of calls, Accounts Payable processing through bill.com, etc. 


Be done being stressed out about the state of your business books.

Say bye to feeling bad about what you do or don’t know about your financials.

Those days are behind you.

It’s time to be the Total BOSS.

Hustling ‘round the clock and still barely making it?
Maybe your pricing is the problem.

Launching a business requires vision and enthusiasm and, let’s face it, a lot of work. It’s Hustle, & plenty of it. In the early years, all that Hustle is normal. After all, you’re testing, you’re proving your concept, you’re learning your way. And after all that, the good news is that your idea is clearly working: you’re selling, you’re earning. People are picking up what you’re putting down. It’s awesome.

And yet.

Is some or all of this also true for you?

  • You feel like your time is not your own.

  • You spend a lot of time and energy running around, switching between clients and tasks.

  • You have clients who fail the groan test – you know what I mean: you see their email or their number pop up on your phone, and you groan.

  • You don’t feel as inspired and creative as you used to.

  • You love this life you’re making and damn it,

  • You’re tired.
You, my poor dear, are all Hustle. And too little Chill.

There’s generally a pretty simple reason why: your pricing. Most of us start out pricing on the timid side. We want to make those first few sales, we’re not yet sure of our value, we feel inexperienced compared to everyone else out there. We go out soft as we’re testing out our own voices, our own ideas.

Problem is: that timid start can cripple you down the line. It can keep you working your ass off, wowing your customers and still crying over your bank balance.

It’s time to change all that.

Enter your friendly neighborhood Pricing Ninja.

Revamping your packages and prices is the fastest way to adjust your Hustle to Chill ratio. When you price your services right, you buy yourself more time to build your business, to delegate to people you’ve hired and/or contracted, to say bye-bye to the wrong clients and work, and Hellloooo to the good stuff.

Hello to space. Hello to time. Hello to success on your own terms.

"My Pricing Ninja session with Ariane was everything I wanted and more! The amount of clarity I got about my numbers in 90 minutes is unreal, people. Unreal! I now have a clear understanding of the mistakes I was making when pricing my programs and am confident I have the right prices on all of my current offers. I highly recommend Pricing Ninja for every single entrepreneur out there. Trust me, picking a number out of thin air because "it sounds good to you" is not the method you want to use. This is required training for anyone who needs to come up with prices for their services or products. "

Pricing Ninja was designed to help you take your game to the next level with the help of someone who’s been there/done that with dozens of businesses.

Pricing is hard. And scary for most of us.

Pricing brings up all kinds of issues. About self-worth. About confidence. About vulnerability and exposure and risk. But with a little help, you can kick all that in the ass and move boldly forward. Get it done faster & more efficiently by enlisting a Pricing Ninja with over 20 years experience in financial management, strategy and business development. 


What I loved about the [Pricing Ninja] session itself was the breakdown of how much time I was really spending with clients and how much I was charging for those hours. It really simplified it for me. I appreciated Ariane's recommendations and her supportive, non-judgmental style. Saying my new pricing out loud to Ariane helped me to take action the next day! I would highly recommend this pricing session to others who are ready to OWN the worth of their services in new ways. Ariane provides the perfect mix of CFO knowledge and gentle/wise counsel to help business owners get to the next level!

“I recently met with Ariane for a Creative Incite Session and I truly received major insight from her on my business venture.  She is a creative, "out of the box" thinker and planner yet she has so much left brain, logical experience that the combination is quite powerful. In just 60 minutes she was able to direct my focus on what needed to be done next and ignite enthusiasm for the tasks ahead. Before I met with Ariane I had been at a bit of a loss as to what my next steps should be, now I have a clear path forward!”
