Hello! Welcome to The Budget Professional! My name is Wendy, and I’m delighted to help you make sense of your money and try to keep more of it.  When it comes to financial security, it’s not what you earn – it’s what you spend.

Do you often have more month left after the money runs out? Have you ever sat down with your checkbook, head in your hands, trying to figure out how to rob Peter to pay Paul? How many times have you struggled to buy the kids new shoes for school, while at the same time keep the electricity turned on? Do you despair because you don’t have a retirement fund and you’re afraid Social Security won’t be around when you retire?

If you’ve done any of these things, you know the answer at the time was:  “I need more money!” I am here to tell you that you can have money, and you should!

I’ve owned small businesses for years, and have parlayed that knowledge into business coaching and consulting, helping many small business owners set up shop and go on to great success.

I am a professional tax return preparer and accountant, and have taught tax law and tax preparation classes for the federal government and the private sector.

My solid business background has served me well in my current writing career. I am a writer at heart, and a few years ago decided to leave corporate work and do what I’ve always loved, which is write.

I am a free-lance writer and a professional copywriter. My plan is to put the word out about personal finance and taxes, and pass along my money and tax secrets!

I look forward to getting to know you, answering questions, and putting “out there” what you need to know to build your financial future!

I’ve also got a lot of friends – fellow accountants, CPA’s, tax preparers, small business owners, copywriters, and more – and they’ll be guest posting from time to time, in addition to allowing me to pick their brains!

If you have a tax or money question, send me an email!  Your question could be the next blog post!
