Jo-Ann and Andrei Ostermann, Owners

We’re here to help you, the Canadian business owner, understand the basics of business ownership and management so you can make the right decisions about structure, management and finances…without getting a business degree!

Your days are filled with customer meetings, supplier management and probably lots of paperwork (yuck).

As small business owner’s ourselves, we know what that’s like and we want to help you get the most out of your day and your business.

If your sales are great and your customers love your product but you’re not sure what to do with that stack of receipts in your office or you aren’t sure how much you can afford to pay your assistant or yourself (what’s that you don’t pay yourself??  Yikes!!), then you have come to the right place!

We can help!

We are experts in making complex business concepts easy for anyone to understand.

Our goal is to help you maximize your profits and reduce your taxes by helping you organize the ‘boring’ side of your business, the administration.

You’ll get simple, no BS explanations of the business concepts you need to know without a whole bunch of crap that only your lawyer wants to read. (Yes, you should have a lawyer!)

So, you’ll be reading your financial statements like a pro and calculating your profit margin, in no time flat. (Don’t know what a profit margin is? You will soon!)

We know you started your business to sell your products and services in order to get the financial freedom to do the things you want.

We can help you avoid the common pitfalls of business ownership and increase your chances of success and we do it for the Canadian business owner so you don’t have to read another article about the IRS or the pros and cons of a C Corp versus an S Corp!!

Our decades of business administration experience ranges from small family businesses to large corporations in both the services and manufacturing areas which means we can probably relate to you and your business.

Along with our practical experience, we have also some traditional credentials, I earned my Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Calgary and Andrei earned his Business Administration certificate from Success CompuCollege in Winnipeg.

Drawing on all our educational and real world experience, we want to help you succeed!
