4 out of 5 Canadian business owners would rather have a root canal ... than do their books!
At least, that’s what my clients tell me. Or people that I meet at networking events, coffee shops and on-line.
And that goes double for consultants, coaches and creatives (like copywriters, artists and makers).
Arrgh! Oh no! Not the bookkeeping!
Did you Tigger-bounce out of bed this morning all excited about doing your bookkeeping? (I don’t think so).
the paperwork (and especially the bookkeeping) never ranks high on your priority list.
And so, it never gets done…
Then you start getting stressed about it. And then you put if off even more—and you start getting even more stressed. It’s a vicious circle.
…and even when you do tackle the bookkeeping monster, you’re not entirely sure that it’s done right?
Stop! Take a deep breath.
There is a solution!
Are you looking for...
... then you're in the right place.
Hi, I'm Lawrence Fox, the CPA who loves to do bookkeeping!
Yes, that’s me. The bowtie-wearing, fountain pen-wielding, guy whose high school ambition was to be a starship captain. (OK, still is. Just because we don’t have any—yet—is no reason to give up on it!)
I help coaches, consultants and creatives (like copywriters, artists and makers) like you with your bookkeeping woes.
I love bringing order out of chaos.
I love working with you on your bookkeeping, accounting and providing wise wizardly advice and insights.
I'm the guy you call when you absolutely, positively hate doing the books
You’re not alone. I work with business owners like you all the time. I really enjoy doing the essential and tedious stuff that bores, confuses, or drives you around the bend.
Bookkeeping and accounting are my business. I can give you back the time you need to get back to the business of doing business. I can help you eliminate that monstrous mountain of paper lurking in the corner of your desk.
And I try to make it fun (for the both of us!)
How can I help you?
Do you want your books to be:
And above all, do you want to lower your bookkeeping stress and anxiety—and be really, really confident that everything is done right, while having the time to focus on your clients, your family and yourself?
Then we need to talk… (scroll on down a bit to see how).
Some of our Awesome Clients ...
(who are no longer stressed about their bookkeeping!)
I wish I started with his help from Day One!I wanted bookkeeping and advice on improving my business and better work/process flows. Lawrence did it all — and is still doing it — and much more. My books are organized now, and he’s the best at getting the work done. I feel professionally organized — I wish I’d received his help from Day One. Bookkeeping is a massive pain, but I love working with Lawrence on it. I absolutely recommend that you give him a call for small to medium sized businesses.
My favourite part of dealing with Lawrence now on the expense side of things is that all I need to do is take pictures of my receipts, and he handles the rest. What more could you ask for?
In Lawrence I TrustI knew Lawrence for many years as the bookkeeper at a company I did business with. I asked him to join my team because Lawrence really understands the ins and outs of the events and entertainment industry. He’s kept me organized, and he’s always looking for better ways to do things or streamline what we do. He works well with my accountant in collaborating on year end results. Punctual and efficient, and a really nice person, too.

Lawrence saves me so much timeI expected Lawrence to be an expert in Quickbooks — and he ist! My bookkeeping is just SO much more organized since we started working together. One of the best things about him is his kindly nature — he’s so easy work with. And he saves me so much time every month and at the year end.
Isn’t afraid to tell me when I’m wasting moneyI needed Lawrence to help maintain our books, advise on structuring them, and help cleanup some messes from previous years. He did all that. He’s very easy-going, professional, knowledgeable and efficient. He’s a stickler for process and efficiency, and isn’t afraid to tell me if I’m wasting time or money. Best thing from working with him? The jokes in the office have definitely improved! I definitely recommend him.
So flexible and easy to talk toSince I’ve started working with Lawrence, my record-keeping is better. He makes tax time easier for my accountant. And, I have a better understanding of my expenses and what I could eliminate. The best thing about him? He’s so flexible and easy to talk to, so incredibly calming.
Sounds good? Let’s talk about how I can help you!
Interested? So what's the next step?
It’s really easy.
Step 0: Let’s shmooze
Maybe this is the first time we’ve met. Or maybe we met already at a networking event. Or maybe somebody suggested that you look me up or referred you to me.
Not ready to dive in to a detailed Getting To Know You conversation about your business, your goals, and our working together? No problem! Let’s have a short 30-minute virtual shmooze over coffee (or tea) to start getting acquainted. Just pop on over to my handy-dandy, easy-peasy online calendar and book a day and time that works for you.
If that goes well, then it’s onto…
Step 1: Getting to Know You
Ready to get started now? Then pop on over to my handy-dandy, easy-peasy online appointment calendar and book a complimentary, no-obligation “Getting to Know You” consultation.
We’ll talk for 45-60 minutes (and I’ll ask lots of questions about you and your business, and you can ask me all of yours) and we’ll see if we’re a good fit.
Step 2: Deep Dive Assessment
If we’re in sync, then we’ll arrange a call for a Deep Dive Assessment and look at your business and its needs in detail. And we can discuss how to save you time, money and especially, aggravation.
The coffee for that meeting is always on me. (Virtual coffee during the pandemic—but I’ll get you the coffee card of your choice!)
Step 3: We start working together!
How does that sound?
