    I can see clearly now….creating your vision for 2018

    Building upon our September topic of marketing and knowing your clients, we are going to start planning for what you want 2018 to look like.  

    We will provide great thinking questions to get you started identifying goals and how to achieve them in the coming year. We will then have some vision board materials available so that you can start creating a visual representation of what you want the year to be.

    The time for this program has been extended to allow more space for creativity and exploration. Please feel free to bring additional creative materials such as magazines, inspirational sayings or powerful pictures that you would like to use. We will provide poster board, glue sticks, scissors, a handful of magazines and thought provoking questions.

    Here Comes Year-end – Are You Ready?

    The end of the year is just over a month away, and if you’re like many small business owners, you may be feeling overwhelmed with all you need to do in order to have your business records ready for your tax preparer.  

    With identity theft and fraudulent returns on the rise, filing early has become more important than ever, creating even more pressure to get the bookkeeping done.

    In this session, Eve Dubois of Numberworks will share ways you can streamline and organize your business’s record keeping processes and leverage technology to help you make improvements this year that will ease your way over the next few months and make 2018 year-end a breeze.

    Bookkeeping is so much more than recording your income and expenses.  Your numbers tell a story that empowers you to make adjustments and decisions that will help your business thrive.  No matter where you are in the process, there are options to improve the flow of your financial data to make your business more agile so you can make good decisions and be prepared to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.

    Eve Dubois earned her degree in Business Administration from the University of Vermont after gaining practical experience in her family’s businesses. She has over 20 years experience providing bookkeeping and accounting services, putting the numbers to work for her clients in a way that's calm, pain-free, and non-threatening. Dealing with numbers and finances can be a pain, especially if that's not where your talents are. Eve and her staff take away your pain by leveraging technology and doing the work that's easy for us so you can get good, solid numbers that help you make the most of your business's financial information.
