I am Gwen Bortner, and I’m an instructor, speaker, facilitator, and business consultant. My greatest joy is providing the information or insight that results in someone experiencing their personal “light bulb moment.” My goal is to help soloprenuers and small business owners spend less time stressing over the back-office activities and more time creating, developing and growing successful businesses. I can help you accomplish this by simplifying accounting, increasing productivity, streamlining work flow, providing training and consulting on a variety of other back-office activities.
I believe in abundance — professionally and personally. As such, I always strive to share as much knowledge and experience as I possess. I know from experience when my students, audience and clients are successful, I am successful as well. A rising tide raises all boats!

Like most people my age, I didn’t discover the joys of amusement parks until I had entered my teenage years. Through the peer pressure of my cousins I went on my first loopy roller coaster and I was hooked. Now decades later, my husband and I often enjoy a day at an amusement park and […]
With the boom in social media, so much time and conversation is spent on how to build your virtual network. But is that enough? Has our love of the internet caused us to lose sight of the importance of our “in real life” connections? How many views? How many likes? How many subscribers? How many […]
Any good conference will provide interesting information and generate lots of ideas. So many ideas that by the end of the conference you are overwhelmed. The trick is to be able to take all of that information and transform it into usable, workable knowledge. For most people this is easier said than done. Good intentions are […]
