Tracy has grown her business from a one person shop to one of the more established providers of bookkeeping services in the UK, and was a certified Profit First Professional. We talk about how to work with family in business, how simple changes in the words we use affect the business in a big way, the power of joining peer groups, and overall just thinking bigger.
