Blythe proudly admits she is not a CPA, nor does she have any other fancy initials after her name. She does, however, speak fluent nerd and can help translate complex financial information for busy entrepreneurs. She also speaks a little Spanish, but primarily for the purposes of ordering the perfect paella and discretely swearing on a tennis court.
