Show Notes:

Today we’ll be chatting with a very successful online entrepreneur, Alyssa Lang.

Alyssa, aka the Workflow Queen, teaches bookkeepers and accountants how to utilize tech and automation to create better workflows, systems and processes. As a result they can run their practices on autopilot, stress less and save time!

After being in the accounting world for five years, Alyssa struggled with streamlining her practice. She felt frustrated and nervous and couldn’t sleep at night not knowing where her client work would come from. She was overwhelmed by all the daily tasks, lost track of work and just couldn’t keep up.

Alyssa hit a wall and decided to make a change, so she started to automate her practice by creating workflows, systems and processes. She was then able to run her practice and take on more clients, scale and provide excellent service in the process!

These days Alyssa’s a full-time educator. She’s also an Asana Certified Pro and her courses and resources have helped hundreds of bookkeepers and accountants worldwide!

Fun fact: Alyssa’s a certified skydiver and has an obsession with great white sharks – eek!
