Financial Business Coaching with Emily Bordner

The Author

Jesica Williams

Since 2012, I’ve been creating digital wellness guides and researching natural beauty products, HIIT workouts, functional exercises, body positivity, self love, and tips helping you explore wellness and feel good.

At the Biz Babe Symposium this year, I had the privilege of meeting and listening to Emily Bordner. Emily is the beautiful mind behind her empowering + educational + inspiring Financial Coaching Biz (and well as her super-lovely leather goods, jewelry and glassware designs). Um, how wonderfully multi-faceted and talented she is!

Luke and I were lucky enough to snag an hour of her time at the Starbucks on the Plaza here in Kansas City. I loved the set up of talking about our finances (potentially a stressful, tense subject) in a calming, good-vibe coffee shop with great company. Emily was so great and easy to talk to. We were so impressed with how carefree the meeting felt while also being SO full of helpful information that we can apply to our income and planning smart for the future so that we can aim to live as happily and free as possible.

Here are some of the topics from our meeting:

-Creating a separate bank account for ROO income for easy tracking

-Why to file a DBA + getting an EIN # for business banking

-Getting a grasp on business expenses

-What to write off as tax time (office space, work computer, etc.)

-Becoming an LLC (protects you from unhappy clients + accidents, gives you a tax advantage on business purchases)

-The concept of “Freedom of Commitment” from the book “The Art of Not Giving A F*ck)

-Profit First Stradegy

-Assess where majority of business income comes from and use that to plan your time spent

-Dream Clients!

-Expensify app to track business expenses, mileage, etc….

….and so many more gold nuggets! We could have talked to her for SO much longer, but she jam packed our session with digestible, helpful starting points.

Here’s Luke & I feeling adulty after our session with Emily!

Luke and I already feel like we have a better plan to be more organized with our income and begin planning smarter for our future ventures. This experience was so helpful to us and I just know there are so many (9-5 workhorses and entrepreneurial spirits alike) out there that could benefit from this guidance.

Have any questions or are wondering how your business ventures + professional endeavors could benefit from Emily’s coaching? Feel free to comment here or reach out to Emily on her site.
