Hey. Welcome back to another episode of Sell Without Selling. I am your host, Stacey O’Byrne and today I am speaking with a good friend of mine, Laine Proctor. 

[Intro for Guest]

I am so excited for you to hear today’s conversation with Laine. This is going to be a phenomenal conversation. And really quick, if you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or sales professional, and you haven’t hit the level of success that you’ve wanted or needed, or if you’re stuck and needing a pivot in your business, in your success, or you just want more and you understand the importance of having a coach to identify the blind spots, increase accountability, and help with success strategies to take you, your business, your income, and your success to the next level. If this sounds like something for you, then head over to There is a quick application there that will lead to a personal phone call with me to see if we are a great fit for each other. 

Stacey: Okay, Laine, thanks so much for being on the show. Welcome. 

Laine: My pleasure. Thank you.

Stacey: So how are you?

Laine: I am wonderful. 

Stacey. You’re wonderful, huh? I like wonderful. I really do. So I am really curious as to what got you into quickbooks. You know, I’ve known you for a really long time. You’ve got this diverse education. You’re one of the most brilliant people I’ve had the pleasure of having a conversation with, and your journey into quickbooks, your journey into bookkeeping, in my opinion kind of fascinating because of your background. 

Laine: Yes. Well, it’s fascinating to me, too, every time I talk about it. I was just telling someone today, really the story of my life is networking, because everything I’ve ever done has been because I was talking to someone who said, “Hey. You’re amazing. Come try this. I’d love you to be a part of this.” Bookkeeping, quickbooks kind of happened the same way. I was working in the mortgage industry when the mortgage industry was really hot, you know before the crash in 2008. I worked from an entry level clerk all the way up to corporate policies and procedures and though, “I’ve seen what I’ve seen of this industry, and I don’t think I want to pursue it anymore.” So I decided to go see what else was out there.
