Cat hair everywhere. No-makeup face, messy bun. TV on as background noise (crime shows or Harry Potter). A glass on your hand. Understand your business finances, make educated decisions and feel the joy of knowing #allthethings but not having to do them all.
Sounds like a beautiful crispy spring afternoon huh? And you can have it all.
If that sounds like you, fellow boss, you’re in the right place!
I’m Giovana, the founder or My Cats and Me. I work alongside creatives and entrepreneurs and help them navigate the numbers and compliance world.
You have your business all set up; you have your products or services lined up. But you struggle with:
✔️Pricing your items;
✔️Keeping the numbers organized;
✔️Knowing if your offerings are profitable;
✔️Growing your team;
✔️With the oh so many hours doing admin tasks that are not your strongest suit;
✔️Reclaiming that time back to do the work that matters, that brings the $;
✔️Building knowledge to be dangerous, but not needing to do all the back-end part of your business.
That’s where My Cats And Me comes in.
My Cats And Me will help you understand all the backend part of your business, but you won’t need to do a thing if you don’t want to! We will work on getting your finances straight and make sure your business is running smoothly. Make sure you’re ready for that big dream – quit your 9-5, bring in that extra money home, grow your team. Whatever your vision is, we’ll help you get organized to get there.
We believe in being kind to one another. We believe in treating everyone with the kindness and love they deserve.
Empathy is our language. We have different backgrounds, different experiences. But we see you.
We don’t take short-cuts. We believe in doing what is right, regardless of the extra work that might be.
We believe in the magic of creativity, the magic of innovation, the magic of imagination. #FelineMagic
Why have a consulting company called “My Cats And Me”? Oh well, my cats are a big part of my life.
Needless to say, I’m a proud cat mama for three beautiful boys – Tiger, Arnie, and JR.
My Cats and Me was born from a breakdown. You know when you’re in that stage where everything seems to be perfect – you have a fantastic partner, you’re living in the city of your dreams, you have an excellent stable job. But still, you’re feeling unhappy. You’re feeling unfulfilled. And worst of all, you’re feeling drained. All.The.Fluffy.Time. Oh well, that was ME.
My stress level reached a level where it started to affect not only my mind but my body. I was in pain 24/7. I couldn’t sleep.
One day, I woke up and I couldn’t feel my arms nor my face. I felt that, on that precise moment, I started giving up. I was giving up on everything.
Lucky me, I have a fabulous support system on my hubby – Dan. It was as hard for him, and it was for me to talk. I started therapy. And the cats were there for me. Each one of them in their unique way taught me so much.
They showed me self-respect, the importance of boundaries, empathy, and unconditional love. They follow their cycles; they have their routines. It was such a fantastic experience to learn from them.
One day, relaxing by a sun puddle – probably with a glass of wine on one hand and a Harry Potter book on the other – I realized why I was so unhappy. My work did not fulfill me.
I loved what I did, but I wanted to make an impact, I wanted to help small businesses grow. I wanted to have ownership of my time. I wanted to be a part of a community.
That’s when My Cats And Me was born.
