Hey there, I’m Julie Walters.
Most days you can find me balancing growing my business against raising my son and spending time with my husband.
People often refer to me as Julie or Jule, but my legal name is Julia…I don’t often go by it, and if you call me Julia, it most likely means we met in grade primary.
I love serving the world by helping businesses grow. When businesses prosper, a community prospers, and so do its residents.
I work with people who desire to grow their business and make more money. I am lucky to show them how their expenses, revenue and cash flow all relate to their profit. It is a great day when you can help someone figure out their breakeven point, monthly sales targets, and develop a strategy to see more money deposited into their bank account more quickly.
When I’m not busy working on bookkeeping and personal tax returns, you can catch me camping with my family or planning our next vacation. We tented for fifteen years but in 2019 we finally upgraded to a camper. What a luxury!
If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me:
- I am a Certified Quick Books Online Pro Advisor.
- I love to dress up for Halloween. My husband and I are the reigning champions at our friend’s epic Halloween parties.
- I was an exchange student with Rotary International in 1998-1999, and lived in St Gallen, Switzerland.
- I hate scary movies.
- I love to go four-wheeling.
