You've come to the right place!

This is real-life, common sense small business accounting info. No accountant-speak. Just plain English and plain help.

Not sure how to calculate payroll? I'll tell you how. What about accounts receivable? Are your customers paying on time? I have a process for you to follow. Not sure what paperwork to keep and for how long? I'll tell you that too.

Everything on this site is based on sound basic accounting principles.

I've been working in the small business accounting field for over 20 years now. I've worked with all kinds of businesses. I'll show you how to keep your business running and prospering.


Learn how to:

1 - handle your accounts receivable (who owes you)

2 - manage accounts payable (who you owe)

3 - calculate your own payroll (people who call you boss)

4 - prepare and read financial statements

5 - prepare a budget

6 - analyze your cash flow

Learn to take control of your business.  A lot of small business owners do all or some of their own basic bookkeeping.  I'll help you learn the basics, and then I'll show you how to make sense of the numbers and read into what those financial statements are telling you.

I've got a couple ebooks available and an ecourse on setting up a manual accounting system using Excel (or pen and paper if that's more your style).

I'm real.  I'm here to help.  I answer all questions.

I don't provide bookkeeping services, but I do provide what I call Profitability Consulting Services.  That's a big name, but all it means is that I analyze a small business's accounting data, and help the business owner get on the right track to more profitable results.

I'm also developing an ecourse on '21 days to a More Profitable Small Business'.  If you're interested in being on the early mailing list, send me an email (see navigation bar, 'contact me').
