Accountant Finds Compatibility with Home Inventory Business
Kate LeGrand, an entrepreneurial consultant, adds Capital Counts Inventory to her focus of serving her Indiana community.
Kate LeGrand discovered the home inventory industry when searching for an entrepreneurial opportunity. With her busy lifestyle, she knew she didn’t have the time to develop a business from the ground up. After meeting with the owners of Nationwide Inventory Professionals, she launched Capital Counts Inventory in Avon, Indiana, 45 days later.
LeGrand firmly believes that in today’s economic environment, it is important to have more than one leg to your financial stool. Kate’s explains, “I wanted to diversify my sources of income. It is also important for me to have a flexible, scalable business model to create a family business that I could someday pass to my children.”
Kate is an honors graduate of the University of Kentucky with degrees in Business Administration and Economics. She believes entrepreneurship is the genesis of the American dream. Her experience as an entrepreneurial consultant, counseling and encouraging entrepreneurs every day, helped prepare her for her own venture. When asked why she chose to become a Licensee of Nationwide Inventory Professionals, she explained, ” I knew I didn’t have the time to develop a website and marketing collateral, and I didn’t want to have to trial and error my way to a successful business image. What I did want was a proven business model to help me fast track my cash flow and profitability.”
LeGrand and all Licensees have access to processes learned over a decade of continued improvements, a generous marketing package, and one-on-one mentoring. Kate continued, “I wanted the benefit Nationwide’s founders’ learning curve. Why learn the hard way? They have already found what works and what doesn’t. I knew I would be more successful with their advice and counsel.”
Cindy Hartman, co-founder of Nationwide Inventory Professionals, commented about Ms. LeGrand, “Kate is a dynamic business woman. She knows what she wants and goes for it. We love working with her, sharing in her successes and watching her embrace the industry.”
In addition to being the owner of Capital Counts Inventory, LeGrand has been an outsource controller and tax accountant for over 10 years. She has worked in public accounting, venture capital, technology start-ups, and personal financial advisory services. In doing so, she has served in the role of Controller and Start-up Consultant for a wide variety of small businesses from many different industries and provided personal financial counseling to hundreds of families. She also owns Alliance ProAdvisors, a Quickbooks consulting and outsource controllership service.
