I'm Lisa Honold and I'm a small business expert.


I started my career as a CPA with Arthur Andersen, specializing in high-tech start-up companies in San Jose, Phoenix and Seattle. I witnessed the excitement, drama and heartache of start-ups, including many family ventures. I helped dozens of companies with their business strategy and long-term planning.

I left the CPA/public accounting world after 5 years to become a business consultant in the high-tech industry. I helped hundreds of entrepreneurs with big dreams to create foundations to support their businesses--accounting systems, financial reporting, workflow.

In 2002, I became a small business owner with my husband. We started a retail garden store in Seattle called Home & Garden Art, hugely successful for 14 years. In 2004 we created a thriving custom metalwork business called MOD Studio and design/fabricate/install functional art in the shape of railings, gates and sculptures for customers around the country. More recently, I've blended certification in Martha Beck Life Coaching, my family business expertise and my CPA background in my business Celebrate You®.

Let’s chat—I’d love to hear your business story and explore how we might work together.
