Sami Muggy is founder and majority owner of Weeping Willow Business Solutions (formerly Weeping Willow Bookkeeping). As Chief Financial Officer, she handles all client bookkeeping and legal entity establishments for the company; working directly with every client to ensure the accuracy of the business’ financials and legal compliance. Sami is a QuickBooks ProAdvisor and works diligently on continuing professional development to provide the best service possible for her clients.
 

Starting in her early twenties, Sami worked in marketing and transitioned to owning her own business working with the community as a Doula, Childbirth Educator and Holistic Advocate for six years. This time allowed her to develop a deep understanding and appreciation for self employed and self driven business and the drive, meticulous attention to detail and determination required to make a business successful.


Sami is the mother to three amazing boys and spent 12 years working daily with her kids on homeschooling. When life changed over the last couple of years, finding herself a single parent, she knew she wanted to begin working with businesses again to help them build and maintain thriving companies. However, sacrificing the time and involvement in raising and educating her boys was not an option so the vision for Weeping Willow was born in June 2021.

 

Sami finds tremendous joy and satisfaction in working with small and medium sized businesses, providing them the resources and support they need to improve their bottom line. The goal of Weeping Willow Business Solutions is to give owners the freedom to focus on doing what they love while having the peace of mind that the business is growing and thriving.

Laura Harrison is part owner as well as CMO and COO of Weeping Willow Business Solutions (formerly Weeping Willow Bookkeeping), specializing in online reputation management and virtual assistant services for clients as well as internal marketing and business development. Laura works within the local and virtual business communities to foster client and partner relationships as well as build brand awareness and develop marketing and engagement campaigns across social media.

Laura has always had a passion for community involvement and advocacy, with interests focused in human services and patient rights advocacy. Laura spent her early twenties working within the fields of human services and marketing in mid-Missouri; developing the passion and skills required to successfully build networks and relationships within a variety of business and advocacy communities nationwide. Later in life, she found herself working more with patients in medical clinic settings and then eventually, spending a majority of time raising three children and managing a bustling household on a daily basis.

 

After relocating to Kansas City in 2016, it became very apparent that her children getting older, a traditional position was not conducive to being actively engaged in raising a family. Laura spent several years employed as an independent consultant for marketing, social media, virtual assisting and business management within the industries of medical, real estate and several other smaller niche industries. Working as an independent consultant provided Laura the experience and time to develop the determination, motivation and other skills necessary to contribute in running a successful and thriving business.

 

Laura is very excited about the future of Weeping Willow Business Solutions and is working diligently on continuing education in marketing and business development in order to bring clients the best experience possible.
