How Organization Can Improve the Bottom Line for Small Business Owners


As solopreneurs, we ARE our livelihood. The buck stops here. But wait a second, we want money to continuously flow to us, not stop at all. What’s causing that money block for small business owners?

A messy desk, an unorganized office and digital overwhelm!

There are several approaches to increase income flow, including:

  • Office optimization;
  • Email organization;
  • Digital document management;
  • Client database improvement.

A renewed office space and efficient digital system are key to small business success!


Presented by: Ingrid Carleton-Dodds of Bottom Line Organizing

Bottom Line Organizing, the innovative, business venture launched by analytics and quality management expert, Ingrid Carleton-Dodds, provides busy entrepreneurs with so much more than just a tidy, structured office.


An environmental laboratory biologist, with a Bachelor of Science in Ecology from the University of Calgary, Ingrid excelled in many facets of her profession while working with select organizations over the years, including her specialty, environmental ecotoxicology. From strategic data analysis, to reviewing and revising standard operating procedures, right on through to conducting internal audits to improve the quality of company operations, Ingrid honed her talents in project coordination, and the development of effective systems and processes to promote advanced efficiency in the workplace.


A dedicated advocate for women’s empowerment, Ingrid has held many volunteer leadership positions within the Girl Guide organization as well, where her determined focus on time management, meticulous attention to detail, and, of course, her brilliant gift for generating order out of chaos, continue to enhance her mentorship of the program participants.


It is this formidable array of professional and personal skills that Ingrid now brings to her new vocation, assisting entrepreneurs in creating a work environment that’s conducive to their ultimate success. Thanks to Ingrid, more and more business owners are becoming aware that an efficient, streamlined workplace and computer filing system make you more energized and purposeful.

Regional Network Chair: Connie Sparks, CPB

Cost is free - You are responsible for your own meal and beverage

Dining out with food allergies can be a challenge, but it can be done safely. The best way to stay safe is by being informed and communicating your needs.

Before you go: ‘Be Informed and Inform’.
We recommend contacting the restaurant ahead of time and talking to the restaurant manager or Kitchen manager.

At the Restaurant: ‘Communicate’.
Talk to your server upon arriving and to the Regional Network Chair to advise them of your food allergies.

Block out time on your calendar for this event right now. Why? Just imagine networking with some of the top bookkeepers in the country. Imagine the chance to be on the fast track to a more lucrative practice, to being a certified professional bookkeeper (CPB) and to receiving greater professional recognition inside and outside of this network.

Regional Meetings are a vital part of that formula for success.

They're a unique chance to combine learning – a guest speaker shares expertise that's sure to make your work a bit easier – with fun and powerful networking.

Attending this meeting qualifies for one Professional Development Credit

Each meeting includes a guest speaker with a Q&A session; a discussion among the attendees about a marketing topic, a challenge someone may be facing, or another topic important to you; and networking. Non-members are welcome to attend two meetings to evaluate IPBC. Afterwards, you must join to participate in Regional Meetings.

Our meetings are "Scent Free” and business casual attire is appreciated. This is a business meeting. Please, turn off your cell phone before entering the room, and sorry no children allowed.

We look forward to seeing you there!
