Meet Shaelene McInnis. Shaelene is the founder and CEO of Books In Line. Did you know that Shaelene had been working in the corporate world when, with the birth of her two children, she decided to start her own business and work from home? Being an avid poker player, (she has been sponsored to play in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, and placed in the World Poker Tour in Montreal) Shaelene was so good at numbers and money that she quickly decided bookkeeping was the perfect next step. She wanted to create a business that would empower others while teaching them how to make and save more money, themselves!
For the past 15 years, Shaelene has been partnering with entrepreneurs and small business owners. Shaelene and her team are passionate about empowering people when it comes to their money. Of course, we all have to pay taxes, but she does not want you to give one dollar more than you have to to the CRA-Canada Revenue Agency! And that’s what she specializes in and why she loves to give talks. Lunch and Learns are her favourite!
If you’d like to book her to come into your office, we can create a specialized talk just for you and your team! It would be our pleasure — we even bring the lunch!
