I Work With Business Owners, Accountants, & Other
High-Stress Professionals...

...who are so busy with their careers that they have a hard time accomplishing what they truly want.  I help them clarify exactly what they want in their life by utilizing my 5-step process to reduce stress and create a plan so that they can not only achieve their goals, but increase their sense of purpose, self-satisfaction, and lead a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

There Are Two Ways
To Work With Me...


If you are ready to feel relief from the overwhelm and stress in your life and want to create more joy, purpose, and fulfillment by integrating your professional and personal life...

As business owners, accountants, and other high-stress professionals, we tend to think it's "normal" to feel burnt out from the pressure of tight deadlines, workloads, long hours and our client/customer's demands.

When you integrate your professional life, your personal life and your well-being, you can create a more positive, happy, and joyful life.

I work with you as a strategist, mentor and coach to help you understand your next steps so that you can
set and achieve your goals, strengthen & maintain your emotional health, increase your well-being, and manage your relationships.

The Balance DAILY Life Coaching program is set up so that you never have to worry about setting up time in your busy day to meet with me.  You are able to connect with me at your own pace whenever it works best for you anytime of the day - 24/7.



If you want to first take control of & understand your financial statements...
and then want to GROW your business and MAXIMIZE your profits!

Getting your business finances in order and understanding what they mean requires a strategy.

Gaining confidence and clarity around your finances creates a sense of security and improves your quality of life.

You need to take action to have accurate and timely financial reports you can rely on whether you do your own bookkeeping or outsource it.

It's all about putting your finances as a priority no matter what it takes so that you understand exactly how your business is doing and you are ready to make informed business decisions.

My clients learn the best bookkeeping procedures so they can efficiently record their transactions, prepare financial statements, and understand what each piece of information means to their business.

By Mastering Your Small Business Finances, you set yourself and your business up for success so that you'll not only have control of your finances, but knowing you have the security and understanding of how your business is operating allows you to make smart business decisions.

Are you are ready to increase your profits, grow your business, and take your business to the next level so that you can reach the ultimate vision you have for your business?

Once you understand your financial statements, you're ready for the next step.

Together, you and I will take that vision and strategically plan how you can build on the business you want to create.

You'll gain insight for generating higher profits in your business from someone who has worked with businesses for over 25 years.

I've helped clients solidify their business foundation, refine their operations and build belief in their success, and I will help you too.

We'll get intentional about reaching each milestone by setting up the exact steps so that you can achieve your goals all while creating a manageable work-life balance.

Growing a profitable business requires commitment, drive and discipline.  Working with me in either a group or on a one-on-one basis allows you to see your results much faster and is advantageous for both your development as a business owner and the success and growth of your business.

I am here to guide, support and mentor you along the way as we clarify your intentions, ensure they are aligned with your goals and provide insight to help you reach your results efficiently.

"Chris Panek has been a vital part of the organizational system for accounting in my small business.  She has assisted me in setting up my day-to-day operations, along with saving me valuable time by keeping up with the current and ever-changing tax laws.  At the end of each year, filing my taxes has been a quick and simple process.  I feel I can go to Chris anytime and ask the questions I need to stay operating with efficiency.  Often times small businesses fail because they don't have organized systems.  Chris has helped in keeping my busy company on task and made me feel secure in the often-intimidating world of accounting.  We are a better business because of her expertise!"      Beth

"Chris Panek helped make our dream of improving our financial health and growing our business a reality.  Chris is creative, intelligent, flexible, and kind.  Through her patience and extensive experience, she has helped me greatly improve my comprehension and understanding of bookkeeping and accounting, which has increased my ability and confidence to make sound business decisions.  She continually works with us and gives us options that align with our situation and needs.  Prior to working with Chris, I lost sleep over whether or not our financial statements and tax information were correct - now, I have complete confidence that our financial information is sound and accurate.  To say that this is a relief is an understatement!!  With Chris Panek, you aren't treated like a number on a balance sheet; you are treated like a member of her family.  I can't say enough how grateful we are to her for her help, expertise, and guidance.  Whether you are considering hiring a bookkeeper/accountant, want to eliminate the stress involved with that tax appointment, or simply want a more personal and fulfilling relationship with your bookkeeper, do yourself a favor and meet with Chris Panek.  It will be one of the best decisions you ever make!"  Melissa

"I wanted to invest in my education and skills. I had a realization that I am my own greatest asset and that I needed to invest in and develop my professional skills. I trusted you because of your high quality content that helps me on a daily basis! You called me right away and took lots of time with me on the phone. You provided outstanding references. I can see that it is possible for me to earn more money at what I'm doing. I'm understanding how to re-imagine myself as a business rather than an employee or independent contractor. "      Rachelle

"My biggest issue was not knowing where to start.  I was afraid of starting the bookkeeping business and not knowing what or how to run which reports.  Luckily I found Chris at the right moment in starting my bookkeeping business.  One of my fears was not knowing how to run something or having enough knowledge of bookkeeping and running my own business.  The best thing that I’ve realized is I can do it and I am busy getting my first client.
