Software and Tools We Use
We exist to accompany service providers with their bookkeeping and other business finance support. We accompany them through their entrepreneurial journey to guide them in ensuring that their business finances are accurate, giving them insight and guidance on their finances, and guiding them through effective business decisions. We truly become a member of our clients’ teams and a trusted advisor regardless of how much our clients pay monthly. We work with other business owners on a mission to change their own lives, and the lives of others, through the gift of their business.
Our Core Values:
Servant-Leadership: We aspire to be great primarily in our service to others – to each of our team members and to our clients. We serve others foremost with integrity – being honest and always doing the next right thing for ourselves, team members, and clients. We are humble and do what needs to be done. We lead with a genuine concern for others and provide a helping hand when possible to solve any questions or concerns. We give our team members and clients the benefit of the doubt and look at situations in a positive light.
Accuracy is Everything: For us, our accuracy sets us apart. We ensure that our clients’ information is correct and we document processes and procedures to ensure that our clients receive consistency and excellent service. In order to help our clients grow we need to have accurate information – this is where it all begins.
Our Team is Your Team: We are all in this together and our team is an extension of our clients’ teams. Therefore, we strive to build relationships with our team members in order to provide them with the solutions to help them grow. Similarly, we love helping our clients build their own systems and processes for their team to help their teams as well. All of this is a win-win!
Open and Honest: We are an open book and believe in transparency both within our business and also with our clients. In order to truly build trust and get our clients to where they want to go we have to be open and honest with them. While this may be difficult at times we know that the only way to truly move the needle is to bring things into the light and provide a solution for what we are seeing. We also need to do this with our team. As we are building systems and processes and providing service to our clients we need to say something when we see something and provide solutions.
