We Pair Busy Business Owners

With World-Class Accounting Professionals

The World Needs Great Businesses,  And Great Businesses Need Great Accounting Professionals

It’s never been easier and more attractive to start your own business. The internet has made creating a product and finding customer easier than ever, and the freedom that comes with owning a business is powerful.


But most business owners didn’t start their businesses so they could get stuck managing their finances. That’s why we built Empower.

When busy business owners meet world-class accounting professionals, they empower each other towards freedom.

You likely didn’t start a business so you could run a business – you started it so that you could do work you love and bring your vision to life. We help busy solopreneurs and small business owners find trustworthy and dependable accounting pros so they can put their finances on autopilot and get back to doing what they love.

Staying stuck in the grind of the traditional accounting path isn’t your only option – but building your own business can feel intimidating. We help talented accounting professionals de-risk the process of striking out on their own by giving them a step-by-step roadmap, supportive community, and marketing resources so they can create the freedom they crave.

Let Us Empower You to Do Your Best Work.

Our founder, Meredith Arlinghaus, was stuck.

She was working in a traditional accounting role and felt stifled and burnt out. She was missing out on the best years with her family. And she decided it was time for a change. 

Meredith decided to take some time off to be a mom and started working part-time for a local non-profit that needed accounting support. In doing so, she realized that her skills were having a huge impact on the organization. Word spread about her skills and she began to scale a full-on outsourced bookkeeping, accounting and advisory business – all while spending more time with her family and achieving her financial goals.

But it didn’t stop there. Soon, Meredith was serving 25+ clients and didn’t have capacity to take on more clients herself despite near constant requests.

These business owners had built great businesses, and Meredith wanted to help them experience the freedom to focus on what they do best.

So she had an epiphany: What if she helped other talented accounting professionals break out from the traditional path and do exactly what she had done?

And that’s when Empower was born.

Our mission is simple: Pair busy business owners with world-class accounting professionals so that both can experience the freedom to build a career and a life they love.
