How Polymath Began:

Ingrid Edstrom started Polymath, LLC in 2008 with the intention to provide high quality and much needed services to struggling local businesses. Polymath really enjoys helping others by doing something they love, and, believe it or not, they really love bookkeeping. Since then, Polymath has been growing and refining itself, and Ingrid and Vanessa look forward to training and welcoming some new bookkeepers to their team!

  • What’s the risk? Meet Polymath!
    I love that a local professional has the confidence and foresight to offer an hour of free consultation with prospective clients that need to determine whether outsourcing bookkeeping is for them or not. They have processes that allow professionals to specialize in what they do... THEIR profession, leaving the books to Polymath, THEIR profession. Don't be an apple trying to be an orange, work your craft and let them work theirs. Thank you Polymath!
