Who We Are
Paco de Leon
Hi, I'm Paco. I'm a musician who happens to be killer at finance. I've spent most of my career working with creatives who also do business.
I've worked as a small business consultant, financial planner, wealth manager and I even spent some time at a big, evil bank. My experiences have lead me to found The Hell Yeah Group, a financial firm focused on inspiring creatives to be engaged with their personal and business finances and more importantly, to give them the tools and support to stop freaking out about it.
I live in Echo Park in sunny Los Angeles with my wife Jenn. I play in a band called Mister Fantasy, I'm the founder of a boutique bookkeeping company called Hell Yeah, Bookkeeping and a co-founder of the arts-based non profit organization, Allies in Arts.
