Char Hiebert, CPB

“If you think you can, or think you can’t, either way you are right.” ~Henry Ford.

Char Hiebert is fiercely committed to guiding passionate, caring bookkeepers to achieve soul satisfying work with customers who appreciate them, so they can have the life and lifestyle they’ve always dreamt of. That lifestyle could include more free time to deepen relationships with family and friends, a solid work life balance where peace of mind prevails, a life of travel while still earning an income, or simply continuing to be of deep service to customers while being fulfilled by their contributions.

If you are looking for a professional who can guide you through the process of uncovering the true value of your services and getting compensated well, you’ve come to the right place. With 10 years of experience as a bookkeeper, a regular speaker at the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC) annual conference, and more recently a business consultant and coach, Char Hiebert is committed to helping passionate bookkeepers serve their best customers in a meaningful way and get paid extremely well for it.

Char’s path to becoming a speaker, educator, consultant and coach for bookkeepers became clear when she took on the responsibility for setting up the first Regional Bookkeepers meeting in Winnipeg in 2009 as a member of the IPBC. During her eighteen months as Regional Developer, she witnessed firsthand how much time fellow bookkeepers spent developing the technical side of their business – their bookkeeping and software skills – while completely neglecting developing their business skills, which is equally as important.

Clients say remarkable things about the impact Char’s work has had on their life and business success:

“Within less than 30 days of working with Char on creating my sustainable practice I’ve made a noticeable improvement in my focus and productivity. Incoming emails have been reduced by 75%, I’ve surprised myself on several occasions with how much I get done compared to before, my staff have more time to work on files now that we’ve reduced distractions and my chiropractor even commented on how much more relaxed my body is.”

“I have an improved sense of the value of my services in the market after working with Char.”

“I implemented just two of Char’s ideas and I have drastically, drastically changed the way I think about my schedule and my workflow. It has truly been a game changer!”

Similar benefits await you when you decide to invite Char to serve you and support your success in powerful ways that only Char can.

Char lights up knowing that bookkeepers’ lives, the lives of their families, and the lives of their best customers are improved by working with her. Life is too short to not love who you’re working with and how you’re spending your limited time here on earth.

What sets Char apart from other business consultants and coaches is that she, too, is a bookkeeper. Although she has reduced her bookkeeping practice to serve fellow bookkeepers more deeply, she is still in the game, walking the walk. Her observations and advice come from a place of wholeness and sustainability (i.e, does this decision/recommendation serve everyone involved?)

Char is a heart-based business consultant, who leads with the best intentions for everyone – the bookkeeper and the customer – long-term. Many business consultants provide advice from their head rather than their heart, which can lead to client burnout because although it may be sound business advice, it’s not truly in their clients’ best interest holistically. As a seasoned bookkeeper, having served more than 100 bookkeeping customers over the last 10 years, Char has a lot of insight into business and human behavior that is invaluable to her consulting/coaching clients.
