We work with some amazing creatives and often hear...
"I'm a creative, you know, so I don't really get this stuff."
Excuse me for a second...

Hi, I'm Stéphanie and I believe that your creativity doesn't stop at what you make.
I know this because I'm a creative too.
You see, we're all creatives.
We all have the same capacity to understand different things... it's how we use those muscles, it's how things are explained to us, and ultimately, it's how we learn.
If numbers are scary, it's not because you're creative... you just need to be in the right space (a comfortable open-minded space) to learn, to ask questions, and to flex your creative muscle in new ways.
You can create beautiful art.
You can create beautiful bookkeeping systems.
You have to approach both of these things in the same way... be totally open to them and to creating.

Ok, not really, but you get my drift, though...
