Sara Spiegel
"This is the best investment I've ever made.

My awareness of my finances brings me peace of mind. Before I was too worried to spend because I didn't know where I stood. Now I can see what the months ahead look like and what needs to be done to maintain profitability."

Founder, w/Sara PR
Cole Wilson
"This has been a game changer. It is helpful to know what I can and cannot afford to invest in. I'm no longer fearful of turning down projects just for the sake of money."

We believe creatives deserve affordable services 
that support them as they grow. 

Our sliding-scale offerings enable your creative genius to thrive with thoughtful consulting, strategy, and visual data-backed tools.

We will unload your stress to make running your business fun again.


Hey, I'm Meredith! I have 10+ years experience in finance and strategy consulting with CFOs of the largest health systems, top VC-backed tech startups, and creative founders + freelancers. 

I'm equal parts left and right brain, which gives me a keen understanding how the creative brain works yet I'm also a process-driven freak that can whip you into shape. 

I offer visual finance tools, one-on-one advising sessions, and custom consulting engagements for creative studios and agencies. I often step in as a hybrid Fractional CFO and COO and advisor. 

We start with your finances and leverage data to ground us. We set profitable project rates, re-align your offerings, and determine a fair subcontractor budget. We also make sure that you're paying yourself, saving money, and developing a healthy profit.
My clients come to me for strategy, focus, accountability, data-driven goals, clarity, and strategic direction. I get you to a place where you can make decisions rooted in truth, not fear, for aligned growth and expansion. 

This sounds like you if you are running an agency or studio, you've started to manage subcontractors and employees, and your business ops + finances have gotten a bit too out of hand. You may even be charging the same rates you did back when you were freelancing. I can help.
