Vision, Mission, & Purpose
Hi! I’m Ingrid Edstrom—they call me the Priestess of Profits due to my passion for preaching the gospel of healthy business. My vision for my work through Priestess of Profits is to make the world a better place built on a foundation of thriving small businesses. I believe that if more people were making a good living doing what they love best, we would be surrounded by healthier, happier people. That is the world that I want to live in!
I turn this vision into our shared mission in three ways:
Nurture: I educate my clients to help them lead strong businesses with healthy, happy teams.
Connect: I partner with my clients and their teams in collaborative relationships as a trusted advisor on the journey to meaningful fulfillment, success, and profit.
Manifest: I train others in my professional communities to redefine our industries and raise the bar for quality business strategy and humane workplace environments, thus helping more businesses all over the world.
My PURPOSE is to Empower your Passion
I’ve been working to help small businesses to streamline their financial processes and gain peace of mind since I started my original firm, Polymath LLC, back in 2008. I began Polymath with the intention to provide high quality and much-needed accounting consultation services to struggling local businesses in Southern Oregon. By 2016, I found myself working with an increasingly niche business category: the tours and activities industry, and I started to focus more on business strategy and financial workflow design with those businesses. In 2020 I rebranded from Polymath to Priestess Of Profits, and I began to focus more on my coaching work with accounting professionals. I realized that if I want to make a bigger positive impact in the world, I needed to support accountants in working with their favorite clients so that, together, we can help more businesses succeed, creating a rising tide that raises all ships.
At heart I’m an accounting and business strategy nerd. As founder and Chief Empowerment Officer of Priestess of Profits, I adore taking topics that most small business owners put on a scale from boring to terrifying and turning them into a fun and rewarding part of entrepreneurship. I lead the Empower Your Passion mastermind group for accountants through the RoundtableLabs community, course moderator for the Pachamama Alliance, and founder of the Accounting Alchemy Network. If you want a fun throwback from many years ago, you can still find the Ask a Bookkeeper online education series on YouTube.
I am a Woodard Certified Business Coach, a certified Positive Intelligence Mental Fitness Coach, a Certified Working Genius Consultant, and a certified Offers and Needs Market Facilitator. I’m a member of the Intuit Trainer/Writer Network. I have been recognized as one of the accounting profession’s Top 40 Under 40 and as one of the Most Powerful Women in Accounting by CPA Practice Advisor Magazine. I am also an Intuit QuickBooks Top 100 ProAdvisor and Firm of the Future winner. I’m even featured in Steve Pipe’s book The World’s Most Inspiring Accountants!
When I’m not playing my favorite video game (QuickBooks), you can usually find me playing Irish music or frolicking with my goats. I also enjoy singing, dancing, gardening, and adventuring around the world with friends and family. I live on a small farm where I grow most of my own food with a menagerie of goats, rabbits, chickens, kitties, and snakes.
