Tell Me I Can’t, I’ll Show You I Can, with Julie Goodall

Julie Goodall - Aspiriant Money Tales Podcast

In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Julie Goodall. At age 30, Julie learned she wouldn’t get a loan because she was young, female, and didn’t have a college degree. When Julie heard that verbal slam, she thought, “Tell Me I Can’t, I’ll Show You I Can.” That was enough to help her decide she was moving forward with transitioning her personal training business to full-fledged gym ownership.

Today, Julie is thriving in her current business, Genesis Consulting, where she’s a passionate, versatile, MacGyver-like entrepreneur. She’s dedicated to helping business owners make sure their business is running at optimum efficiency, and they are uniquely positioned to achieve world domination. Or at least what they set out to accomplish. She is oddly interested in all the things that most people hate about running a business. From nonprofits and consultants to photographers and graphic designers, Julie helps business owners get organized, get automated and take their business to the next level.

Julie believes the back office of a business is essential to success and while most people dread the finances, systems and strategizing that is a necessary evil, Julie puts her OCD to good use, making sure everything is reconciled and color-coded so owners can focus on the parts they love; the reason they got into business to begin with. She specializes in mastering the parts people enjoy the least, leaving them free to focus on their dream. 

When she’s not managing workflows or reconciling accounts, she enjoys adventures with her family, traveling, food (both preparing and eating), movie nights and trying to figure out how to do the millions of things on her bucket list before she’s too old to enjoy them or remember what they are!

Julie dreams of a world where “the little guy” succeeds, houses stay clean and calories don’t count.
