Building Sesame Street for business owners

Ingrid Edstrom, Priestess of Profits

Polymath is a small bookkeeping firm in small town in Southern Oregon. Our vision is to make the world a better place, built on a foundation of thriving small businesses. We specialize in providing cashflow and profit planning services for adventure and cultural tour companies.

Polymath before Practice Ignition

Our systems were a mess. We had a standard agreement with all of our clients that were based on billing for time after-the-fact. The process itself invited clients to question our methods and integrity twice a month, and they never really saw our value. It was exhausting, ineffective, and ultimately unsustainable.

Polymath meets Practice Ignition

Practice Ignition has helped us streamline our transition to value pricing. We now have clearer agreements with our clients, and everyone knows what's coming in advance. The best part is that everything is paid in advance! We no longer carry any accounts receivable, and we will never need to chase a client for payment again.

Practice Ignition is a cornerstone of our client onboarding and retention process. The level of clarity and professionalism is impressive to the business owners we serve. Creating client engagements is no longer a daunting task that gets procrastinated; it is a rewarding part of the relationship that demonstrates our value.

Polymath now

We are now focusing on deeper relationships with fewer clients. Our value has increased in the eyes of the RIGHT clients, and they are happy to pay us to help them be more profitable. It's a win-win!

What’s next?

We are working to expand our educational offerings through our online show: Ask A Bookkeeper. This YouTube channel and video podcast provides high-quality bookkeeping and business education on important topics. It's basically Sesame Street for business owners! We are seeking app sponsors and guest hosts to join us in this project. Together we will make the world a better place, built on a foundation of thriving small business.
