This is a simple question to us, but not always a simple answer for everyone else. Because putting accounting and marketing together is not an obvious leap for everyone.

At the core, The Same Coin is a small business consulting firm. But we just hate the way that sounds. We’d rather say we’re your friend in business. (Cue “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story.)

Which still tells you nothing. Sorry. Susan will stop humming now and get back to business.

We are here to do one thing and one thing only. Improve your bottom line.

We do this through two avenues – marketing (all about getting the money in the door) and management accounting (all about keeping the money from going out the door).

Sometimes you might need one, sometimes the other, sometimes both. We’re flexible about what we provide and how it works.

Generally, we work in an ongoing relationship with clients that might include monthly reporting, pow-wows (gotta love webcams!) and regular assessments. But you might want us to come in just once to help you with a special project like a financial plan to take to a bank (no – don’t do it!) or coordinate providers for a brand overhaul.

We offer services in packages or a la carte (not a la mode, unfortunately) because at the end of the day, we want to do what we can on our end to make your business succeed. Because that’s our bottom line.
