There isn’t a day that goes by that she doesn’t love what she does to help amazing women (and men!) just like you every single day. Clarissa has been through one heck of journey already in this lifetime and learned many life lessons, but also developed a very well stocked toolbox to help people tackle their money woes head on. Clarissa is an accountant with 3 college degrees. She has two fur-babies – Sparky and Chubbs, who really act like children and keep her on her toes.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

1. What is your business/Business Name?  What does your business do?

My business is Clarissa Wilson, LLC. My business provides money mindset and money relationship coaching to female entrepreneurs who struggle with making money in their business on a regular basis so that they can quit their day jobs and work full time in their business. My business also provides bookkeeping services to female entrepreneurs who work in the online world. Many entrepreneurs would like to work with a bookkeeper who knows what working in the online world is, and that is exactly what I do with my bookkeeping services. I either do the bookkeeping for your business or I can teach you how to do the bookkeeping for yourself. 

2. Why did you get into this field?  What opportunities did you see?

I actually got into this field at first when I was in high school. I have always had a love of numbers and my parents owned a dairy farm when I was growing up. In 10th grade, I was introduced to accounting for the first time and I just fell in love with it. Plus it was a top rated job back then, so I knew it paid more money than owning a dairy farm. Even back then, I wanted to get control of my money and make so much more than my parents ever did on their farm. I knew it was a life I didn’t want to live anymore. Then after college, I started working for someone else, filing tax returns and entering data into the computer and it didn’t take long before that place just wasn’t for me. Working for someone else, where I have no control, just wasn’t for me. So I eventually started my own business after many huge obstacles were placed in my way. And I actually tried to get away from both money and accounting in my business. I focused on energy healing and using oracle cards and crystals in my business. But opportunities to do accounting and money related coaching in my business just kept being dropped into my lap. And since it’s my zone of genius and comes so easily to me, I took each opportunity as it was handed to me. I learned how important it is to listen to my intuition and run with the opportunities that the universe is dropping into my lap and my business has been built on this trust and intuition doing what I love doing the most – helping other female entrepreneurs with their money issues.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

My biggest challenges have been being able to keep up my strength when I needed that extra dose because of all of the obstacles that kept getting placed in my way. I was used to the obstacle of my own money beliefs from growing up, then came a house fire, where I lost the home I was living in, then losing the job I was working (for someone else) at the time. Both of which happened in a 3 week period. But they were also the biggest changing points in my life too. After things settled down, I was able to start my business and start building up the drive to help other women who desired that help to become better women.

My other challenges included finding what I should be doing in my business. I started with energy healing, but it was way too physically draining on my own body to do this for long periods of time. So I started looking for other ways to help women in my business and along came what I know best – bookkeeping for online entrepreneurs and money coaching. Another challenge was finding the time to do all that I wanted to do in my business without getting overwhelmed. This is so common among entrepreneurs, but I stopped stressing about what needed to get done and just started doing the top 2-3 tasks on my plate each day.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

My greatest reward has been the transformation of the amazing ladies I work with. It doesn’t matter what they come to me with, something in them is transformed before they walk out that door at the end of our time together. And being able to see that change and know that I helped them find that change is my single greatest reward of doing what I do.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

I don’t think there is anything that I would really change. Everything that has happened in my life, happened to get me to exactly where I am today. I wouldn’t be the amazing woman that I have become today if it wasn’t for all of the challenges and obstacles that came up in my life when they did. 

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

When you start your business, don’t worry when you start to lose interest in what you are offering. Chances are, what you started offering in your business was not in your zone of genius. When you find that zone of genius and what you are meant to offer in your business, working on your business will no longer feel like work. It will be that job that you absolutely love going to and some days, never wanting to leave. You will wake up excited to get to work every morning.

7. Social Media.  Yay or Nay?

Yay and nay. For me, it’s mainly just Facebook and Instagram, but I try to limit my time on both or I just get sucked into the vortex of social media and get no work done.

8. How do you market your products?

Mostly word of mouth and through forming relationships with amazing ladies in FB groups that I’m involved in. I whole-heartedly believe in relationship marketing.

9. Is your business a service or a product?  If you are a product, how do you handle production?


10. What is unique about your business?

The most unique thing about my business is that I help you focus on creating a relationship with money, instead of just busting through your money blocks and limiting beliefs. When you bust up these blocks, more are going to keep coming up, that is just how limiting beliefs are. When you have a relationship that you nurture on a very regular basis, the blocks tend to disappear much faster, usually almost as soon as you are aware of that block being there, and this is based on my own experience. I also don’t teach you to do anything that I didn’t do myself while I was going through this same process. Plus many of the things I teach, I still do myself to this day. Another unique thing about my business is that I am very intuitive and while we are talking I can “hear” things that you aren’t saying because you either don’t want to say them, or you don’t even know they are there. These things help you break through even more limiting beliefs that have been holding you back.

11. Sell me your product/service.

I see you there struggling with your finances. There is never enough money left at the end of every month. It seems like a never ending battle. But it doesn’t have to be. You don’t have to struggle every month. Money wants to have a relationship with you and be able to love and support you on a daily basis just like your significant other does. But you have to allow money to love and support you.

In just 3 months, you can have this relationship being developed. You can change the way you think about money. You can dig deep into your system and pull out those old beliefs that you have to struggle with all the time. You can dig out the beliefs that you have to work hard and never have money. And you can start having more money at the end of every month. You can create a savings plan and have emergency funds for when you need it most. And most of all, you can start buying stuff for yourself when you want it, not when you have enough money, because you are always going to have enough money.

Are you ready to change your life and relationship with money? Good, let’s get started.

12. How can people get in touch with you?  What’s your website/Contact information?
