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!

I have run my business affairs for as long as I can remember around my task list, calendar and – as soon as it was widely available – e-mail. It has been my method of organizing my day, ensuring priorities and projects are completed and very few (if any) details fall through the cracks. But […]
Over the past several months, we have been living in a vast sea of dirt. Our fenced yard is about a half an acre and we are completely remodeling our landscape. As part of our yard remodel we have worked with a number of contractors including a builder, designer, landscaper, gutter installer, “cement guy,” outdoor […]
Activities we engage in on a regular basis are often described as habits. But before they become habits, we must first develop a discipline of repeated activities. This is where recurrence can come to the rescue. Most of us develop a habit of brushing our teeth while we are young, but rarely does that occur […]
