by Christina Grice An 8-step guide to ensure recovery of overdue invoices for even the most timid entrepreneurs. According to the National Federation of Independent Business, 64% of small-business owners have unpaid invoices that are at least 60 days old. Since most businesses use cash ...
Christina has been in business for herself for years unintentionally. Her friends and family even colleagues would reach out to her, knowing what she did for a living, asking for Money Management advice. Consultants she had worked with in the past began to reach out and ask if she would consider keeping their financial books for their own business’. Before she knew it, she had a growing clientele. Still, like many others, without an actual business. She would continuously tell her clients, “There is no miraculous spreadsheet or app that will manage your finances for you, you have to be apart of the process”. What worked for one, by no means could work for all.
She was filled with enormous amounts of money management information as well as after working and managing the books for all types of owners, the pattern was clear. Too often business owners were trying to manage all facets of their business instead of outsourcing in a failed attempt to save funds, funds that they were spending elsewhere anyway. They also, through lack of knowledge from being told “accounting was too complicated”, had this downcast fear of understanding their own business’ finances or financial reports.read more

I had the pleasure of working with Christina through a separate client project before bringing her on for my company’s bookkeeping services. In a matter of weeks she was able to research, suggest, and correct accounting issues that my previous two accounting firms had neglected to address. She proactively manages my relationships with the State as well as for Federal taxes, and tirelessly works with me to make beautiful historical and projection-based spreadsheets so I understand how my company has grown, how it can grow, and how my money is being managed. Christina is like having a CFO in your back pocket at all times. I’ve finally found a tax professional who cares as much about my business as I do. West Palm Beach, FLDan Lofaso, The Digital Elevator
Doing business with Life in Balance is not transactional, it’s an experience. From day one, Christina’s mindfulness, attention to detail, and curiosity about my personal and professional goals made trusting her with my financial information an organic process. She takes the time to dig deep and educate herself on what you want out of your business and personally shares the wins with you. With the stressful tasks she has taken off of my plate, I am now able to focus on the action items that will elevate my business and create a better experience for my own clients. Cleveland, OHEryka Parker, MBA, Owner of Lyrical Innovations, LLC
Christina has a natural ability with accounting and bookkeeping needs. Her attention to detail surpass' anyone that we had ever had with us in the past. She frequently came up with process to simply, better organize and track our information. She continually has gone above and beyond out exceptions and what we thought our needs were, with her assistance we have extended our business to incorporate a meal plan. Our budgeting process required her to work with different departments managers that had no accounting background. Christina was invaluable in helping me work with managers to analyze prior years trends and expenses. She is extremely passionate about her work and willing to take on new challenges. Her performance is quite remarkable. Amityville, NYPaul Riedel, Good Eats Program
