Frances Schagen is a serial entrepreneur who has started 16 businesses. She’s had businesses in food production, computer sales, construction, landscaping, drafting, estimating, bookkeeping, author/training, and consulting. She took Building Technology and a BSc in Environmental Science.

Finance is the language of business. Frances is fully fluent and able to translate for anyone.

Frances grew Crystal Clear Bookkeeping Ltd for 15 years while raising her 4 children and homesteading on a couple of acres in a small town in Nova Scotia. She partnered with several local business support agencies to design and deliver training.

She applied her engineering and science background to studying hundreds of business clients over the years to find out why some thrive and some struggle. She took what she learned and wrote her first book, Your Effortless Business.

In her private practice, Frances continues to study small business, delivering workshops, training, and consulting to thousands of business owners. She joins our team as a Navigator and Mentor to share all that she’s learned over the years in support of Indigenous entrepreneurial success.
