Here’s a fun – actually not fun at all –  fact about me. There was a point in my life that I was nearly agoraphobic.



I was so scared I could barely leave my own home (agoraphobia is the irrational fear of leaving one’s own house).  It was one of the darkest moments in my struggle with generalized anxiety disorder and panic attacks. 

My struggles with these conditions have waxed and waned over the years. Sometimes my fears completely consume and overrule my life, and sometimes they just hang out, like a horror movie I never know when they will pop out of the corner. 

You might be wondering what this has to do about bookkeeping. 

And the F word

Everything actually. Now as a Jersey girl you know I love a good f-bomb, but 

The F word I am talking about is FEAR. 

I wanted to share this intimate detail about myself because I have been told I am brave. I have been told I seem fearless. But the truth is I am not – at least not always. I, perhaps like you, have lived many days white knuckling my way through life. 

And that’s not okay. 

Because fear can do two things – it can propel you forward or it can be an anchor that drags you down. I have experienced both ways fear can motivate you – and I ain’t talking about the good kind of motivation – and I am here to cheer you on, lift you up and remind you that no matter what, no matter what goal you are trying to pursue…


Here’s another personal detail – I made a very, very specific decision in the middle of 2022 that I would no longer let fear rule my life.

Not in little ways (like driving long distances by myself) or big ways like taking THE BIGGEST LEAP OF MY FRICKIN LIFE and selling my bookkeeping business which was finalized just about a month ago.

No matter your fears, big (I can’t launch a business I don’t know x,y,z yadda yadda yadda) or bigger (I can’t leave my full time job) I got chu! I believe in you. I am here to help you give the middle finger to whatever fear is pushing you down, holding you back, or keeping you up at night. 

I am going to talk about some BIG fears I have overcome to achieve success in my business and my life. It’s a little personal but I am going to be brave. 


Because I believe in you. And I believe in me too.

Fearlessly yours,


P.S. One sure way to get over your fears is to surround yourself with people you lift up. That’s what my Bookkeeper’s Business Incubator is designed to do. Join the waitlist now – doors open in May!
