Meet Heide Olson | NAWBO

Heide Olson

CEO and Founder, All in One Accounting, Inc.

All in One Accounting takes clients from financial chaos to business clarity and beyond.  We do this by providing customized, documented and adaptable accounting solutions.  Our team is made up of bookkeepers, controller and CFO's that provide accounting leadership, innovation and efficiencies to our small business clients.

Tell us about your business journey/experience. Is there a surprising tidbit we can share about you or your history?

All In One Accounting was started because I have a love of small business and entrepreneurs, which fuels my passion to help them be successful.  I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and saw the possibilities and struggles that you experience by starting your own company and wanted to help small businesses do big things by supplying accounting solutions.

Family? Hobbies? Any work-life balance tips? 
My wonderful husband of 20 years is also an entrepreneur and we have four amazing children.  Three of them play traveling hockey and soccer, and I have the privilege of managing their teams, which has become my second full time job.  I get recharged and reset weekly at Hosanna Lutheran!  I love my life and am thankful for each and every day, even on the hard days.

When and why did you join NAWBO-MN? What do you enjoy about NAWBO?
I joined NAWBO after hearing a past president tell her story of when she started her company, the banker asked if her husband would be cosigning for the loan.  I was dismayed that this sort of business practice was still happening in my lifetime and wanted to take part of a continual improvement to the business environment for female entrepreneurs.
