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!

Although I have always loved Sci-Fi, I only became a Doctor Who fan after the reboot 10 years ago. Since then I have discovered that Doctor Who not only knows how to manipulate and move through time, but how to manage it as well. Even though his antics may seem like they are only about […]
I have just finished teaching at an annual weekend retreat and just like every year prior, it was awesome! This retreat is special in a variety of ways. Even though I think mixing it up is a good idea, they bring me back every year. It is so much fun that my husband wants to go […]
Sometimes we know things intuitively but we can’t understand them until someone else helps us make sense of them. For years now, from time to time, things in my world will go exceedingly well (both personally and/or professionally) and I am never quite sure what I did “right”. That was until I was asked to […]
I am always interested and looking at ways to be more productive throughout any given day, week or month. I have long been effective at using my task list and calendar, but sometimes it is not enough. I have learned that when a similar idea or concept pops up repeatedly in my life, that is […]
