Welcome to Careful Cents! This blog is designed to help recovering workaholics and driven solopreneurs implement practices and techniques to earn more money in less time.
My name is Carrie Smith and I’m a solopreneur on a mission. What worked for our businesses in the beginning, doesn’t work now, and it’s time to explore new systems and tactics.
I’m the Method and Means Maven! I help create the methods and systems to run your business better, while organizing the means to do so. I recently quit my small business accounting job of 10 years to pursue full-time entrepreneurship and blogging.
What This Blog is About
I started this blog to become a unique source of entrepreneurial, finance and business tactics for anyone looking to make money from things they truly love.
But somewhere along the way, you started spending all your time answering emails, reassuring clients and putting out business fires. I’ve been there and worked my way through the chaos.
On this blog you will find the tools, apps and systems to take back your business and spend your time doing what you do best — running your business and making a profit.
Meet the Team
I’m not your normal southern kind of girl — I’m a rocker at heart with a little grammar nazi thrown in! I’ve been helping small businesses, freelancers and soloprenerus for the past 10 years, and currently work with some awesome entrepreneurs.

Join Us on This Adventure
Organizing my life and my business has opened so many opportunities — both in my career, my relationships, and life in general. I’ve been able to travel more and go on new adventures! I’ve met tons of amazing and inspiring people and I’ve made some life long friends along the way.
