money management

I help badass entrepreneurs make smart business and financial decisions grounded in their values and data.

Since 2012, I have served 25 clients of whom the majority are women- or minority-owned, completed 34 projects, managed over $40M in revenue, and have facilitated a company sale to an ESOP.

Starting and growing a business takes oomph and guts. It is a lesson in humility every single day. I've got your back.

What I do

Start-up business advising and coaching; interim financial leadership and business management; money-health check-ups; full-service money-management; financial infrastructure setup; bookkeeping; personal business advising; cheerleading; business therapy (joking, not joking).

Clients aren't looking to do an IPO (at least intentionally) and range in revenue size of $50K - $35M. 


I am Lauren Lizardo. I am a storyteller, data-lover, and money boss. In 2014, I moved into a nameless 25' travel trailer. I have lived and worked from the road since. I travel slow, on the lookout for adventures and people I love in obscure towns. Want to learn more? See my expanded bio or contact me and let's talk.
