Amy has always been a numbers person. Her father was a math whiz and always challenged her to work with numbers all her life. When she first moved to California years ago, she struggled to make ends meet and found herself working in three different jobs. While working at various jobs, she used her talents to start a small bookkeeping business to make some extra income. She started to join networking groups and ask for client referrals, and when, in one month, she gained 22 new clients, she knew that she would need to launch her small business fulltime.

Bookkeeping Made Easy is a full-service accounting, bookkeeping and tax services company that focuses on serving individuals and small companies. Amy is passionate about giving her clients the personal touch and is always looking to do more for her them. Beyond basic bookkeeping, she helps them identify their personal or business goals and helps them set up a budget that will help to achieve their goals.

“I’ve helped clients out of foreclosure and purchase or re-finance their homes,” said Amy. “I’m always preparing them for what could possibly come down the pipe for them.”

Amy’s business continues to grow and she recently has had to double her office space to meet the growing demand. Though she already has three part-time employees, she is in need of another employee to manage all of her accounts. She will use her $10,000 loan to hire a new employee and to purchase furniture and computers for her expanded office space.

Amy’s immediate goal is to double her business in 2014. She also has plans to expand her services to Santa Barbara where she one day hopes to retire.
