The Wealthy Intentional Entrepreneur: How to Build Financial Wealth One Step at a Time
This month we wrapped up an exciting book project for Natalya Itu, an expert CPA practicing in Colorado.
We are very excited that Natalya decided to share her wealth of knowledge. As an entrepreneur and business owner herself, she provides valuable insight and inspirational tips for new and established business owners. If you live in the state of Colorado and need a fantastic CPA, contact Natalya at www.coloradobusinesscpa.com.
Our role in the development of this book included interior design, cover design, and e-book conversion. The main goal in the design was to communicate the in-depth information in a way that was easy to understand, inspiring, and not overwhelming. The book contains pull-out quotes and plenty of white space to give the readers space to breathe and time to assimilate the detailed, valuable knowledge.

About the Author
Natalya Korobkova-Itu, CPA is an entrepreneur at heart. She never stops learning about other business owners’ best practices and strives to be a better business owner herself. She came to the USA from Russia in 1998 with her mother, very little money, and no English language skills. Despite those circumstances, her strong will and resilient nature makes her an inspiration to many. She thrives in showing others the power of being intentional and how it can help take them wherever they want to be in life. As a long-time business owner, she shares her best practices from experience and constantly strives to uplift, inspire, and help guide entrepreneurs to success.
She has been a Colorado-licensed CPA for over eight years and an accountant for over twelve years. Her CPA firm, Colorado Business CPA, is located in Englewood, Colorado and specializes in offering business packages including tax, accounting, payroll, and coaching support for small business owners.
As usual, the cover for this book went through many rounds of revisions until we found that one that clicked.
Our team provided these as the initial concepts:
- (Side note: If you’re wondering about watermarks in stock images, that’s because we purchase images after our design concepts are finalized. That way, we can explore many design concepts without wasting the author’s or publisher’s stock image budget. After the cover concept is set, we finalize all image purchases for correct licensing.)
The third design was the favorite, but both our team and the author felt that it needed more energy. Taking the tree element and playing with the energy of arrows and exponential growth (to echo wealth-building), we came up with a few variations of a new design.
After some fine-tuning, we reached the final cover design:
