Does an education prepare you for small business accounting?

This blog post is thanks to Shelly, one of the bookkeepers at QC Computing, and the person in the black sweater. 

Numbers and organization comes naturally to some people. I'm one of those lucky individuals. I’ve always enjoyed working with numbers. To that end, I'm the one who manages the books and paperwork for the business my husband and I own.

After handling the organization for our business, I decided to go back to college and get my degree in accounting.  As I advanced towards my degree I decided that I would like to use my knowledge to help other small business owners. I believe small businesses are the back bone of America.

Once I started working with Madeline, I was astonished to discover that she had this entire level of expertise that a college and an accounting degree had not afforded me. Although nothing will replace the value of my education, it's exciting to discover that there is so much more to learn.

I learned how to apply real world situations to a Profit & Loss Report, the true meaning of Equity in understanding a Balance Sheet, and how to simplify business financials.  I now look at the glitches of my own business differently. I'm able to find simpler solutions to the bookkeeping and paperwork for my business. That, in turn, has improved the profitability, which is awesome. 

Perhaps you're a well educated business owner? Maybe you even have an MBA or a PhD in Business? Now that you have a start up business, don't be shy about calling Madeline and I to help you. You may find that we can show you simpler solutions to your accounting needs than you knew about already. That in turn, may also improve your profitability too.
