After freelancing for nearly a decade, Ean Murphy started Moxie in 2003 with just one other bookkeeper (who is still with the company). Ean knew she wanted Moxie’s focus to be on small businesses run by creatives and nonprofit organizations - companies run by people deeply engaged with their work, but frequently not comfortable with numbers, or aware of the systems required to be successful. Moxie’s core offering is the organization of financial information, informed by Ean’s own first-hand knowledge of being a small business owner. The difficult, and at times complicated, tasks of budgeting, hiring, managing staff, and picking software are all understood by Ean and the Moxie team. Ean is Quickbooks certified since 2004, Xero certified since 2012 and a certified business coach as of 2010. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, she came to NYC to get her BA from The New School and has lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 1990.
