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!

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.

As a soloprenuer it is easy to get caught up in the belief that you are on your own. And you are to some point, but there is also relatively easy access to a much bigger world through social media.

For as long as I can remember, my productivity has been guided by two things: my task list and my calendar. However, these two items have rarely truly been managed in tandem.
