“You may want to hire Brian because you don’t like, understand, or want to deal with accounting. If that’s the case, you’re in great hands with Brian. But if you find you want to learn a bit more and feel more empowered about the numbers that tell the story of your organization, Brian can make that happen. He’s incredibly skilled at translating the numbers to real world relevance. Brian also brings an incredible wealth of software and technical know-how and experience with administrative and management in his approach to financial systems and solutions. At Bitch Media, Brian managed HR, vendors, payroll, and oversaw all our database and technology needs. He’s incredibly detail oriented but also views the big picture when figuring out how to make systems most effective and efficient.” – Julie Falk, Executive Director, Bitch Media, publishers of the magazine Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture
“We have worked with Brian Frank for over two years and are delighted with the work carried out. The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence is a statewide non-profit focused on ending violence in all Oregon communities. Our member programs, state and national funders expect the highest quality of fiscal accountability and fund management. Brian is instrumental in helping us meet those expectations. He brings a demonstrated understanding of the complexity of nonprofit financial management and accounting, as well as a commitment to social justice. I would highly recommend working with him.” – Vanessa Timmons, Executive Director, Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence
“Brian is one of the most reliable, trustworthy, and hard working contractors I’ve ever hired. He’s like a hawk with spotting potential billing errors in our system, helps us to improve our systems, and is responsive and approachable to changes in our business and unusual needs that come up. Perhaps most importantly, he’s a pro at walking us through confusing accounting matters large and small, going the extra mile to make sure we truly understand our financial reports and billings. I’d recommend him to any small business.” Jonathan Griffin, partner at Waveform Agency, a premier booking agency for electronic music artists.
“I got more clarity about my finances in two weeks with Brian than I got in two years with my previous bookkeeper. I’ve known Brian for 10 years, and as a heart-centered, purpose- driven entrepreneur, I’m thrilled to work with Brian who I know is committed to my mission and my success!” Eva Blake, Maven of Sexual Satisfaction at Liberating Desire.
“I originally hired Brian to develop solutions to some problems we were having with billings as they related to complex client escrow accounts. He resolved long-standing problems in short order, and over the next year, ultimately cut the labors hours spent dealing with billings nearly in half. He also worked with me to brainstorm visualizations of our balance sheet, income and expense patterns and cashflow projections that helped get the partners at Autonomous on the same page about how our business worked. Brian brought both ingenuity and skills, almost making accounting fun.” Chris Richard, former partner at Autonomous Music, now owner at Alder Creek Botanicals.
