Hello! Wanted to offer my bookkeeping services to any small businesses having issues.

I've been a Staff Accountant for 3 years at a moderately sized CPA firm. I am currently transitioning on good terms to my own bookkeeping firm which will be based through Quickbooks Online. If any businesses owners are interested in my services, or even just have a quick question, please contact me. I would be glad to help. Currently I am capping my client list at 25 businesses in order to give each one the attention they deserve as opposed to the 80 (or more!) clients that staff accountants work with at a firm. Regardless of your decision, I hope that your business grows and succeeds. Good Luck!

Hello! Wanted to offer my bookkeeping services to any small businesses having issues.

Hello again, @J E Cole Bookkeeping.

 

I'm all too familiar with that sense of excitement and nervousness when starting a new chapter. An old friend of mine used to say that "experience is the thing you have, right after you need it." Luckily, this seems like something you have a lot of passion for. 

 

It's great when businesses benefit from a hands-on and personalized touch. I've seen how this can influence the success of an enterprise. 

 

There seems to be a growing number of virtual bookkeeping firms, which is why I was curious. 

 

Nice and friendly accountants are always welcome here in this space. It's great to have you in the Community and your insights!

 

Should you ever have any questions or need anything, please don't hesitate to let me know. I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Hello! Wanted to offer my bookkeeping services to any small businesses having issues.

Welcome to the Community, @Easton at J E Cole Bookkeeping

 

I wanted to take a moment and congratulate you on embracing the entrepreneurial spirit and launching your firm!

 

If you don't mind me asking, what prompted you to branch out and start this new enterprise? Also, I was curious if you planned on helping local companies or intended more of a focus on virtual bookkeeping. 

 

Since you're new to the Community, I wanted to include some resources to help you get the most out of this space. Here you can find information about building your profile and posting guidelines:

 

 

I'll be keeping an eye out for your response. Cheering you to continued success!

Hello! Wanted to offer my bookkeeping services to any small businesses having issues.

Hi David!

    Sorry for the late reply, still new to how the community site works and only just now seeing your response. Thank you for your words, I am both excited and nervous about this new endeavor but plan to work at it until it is successful. 
    I branched out due to the time constraints of my current job. I do a lot of "behind-the-scenes" work at the firm and interaction with clients is pretty minimal. In addition to that, I felt like with the number of clients I was providing services for that I couldn't give each business the attention they deserve. I branched out on my own to provide personable and affordable bookkeeping and tax payment services to small businesses to help them grow! I have been told often that I was far too outgoing and friendly to be an accountant, I'd like to show people that accountants are there for more than just a reconciliation, tax payment, and return. We are here to help your business become the best it can be! 
   While I am initially contacting local businesses I am absolutely open to virtual bookkeeping. Some industries I'm staying away from due to not enjoying the bookkeeping and tax payments as much (looking at you truck drivers, God bless you) but want to keep the focus on smaller businesses. 
    I haven't dove into the resources yet but will be soon! Thank you again David for reaching out to me, I appreciate it more than you know. Have a wonderful week.
