Practical Financial Advice You Can Count on

Focus Your Time and Efforts on Running Your Business and Leave the Accounting to Me

Who am I?

I first realized my love for accounting after I left the Navy, and started working for Wargames West in Albuquerque, NM. I worked on the sales floor as well as helped with the bookkeeping in the office. I decided then to get my BS in Accounting. I worked for H&R Block doing taxes for 10 years. This included working in a premium office completing business taxes. I also learned advising and consulting for tax planning. Many of the business owners didn’t keep their financial papers up to date. They focused on running the business and let the bookkeeping fall behind. This caused stress at tax time and many worried over their end tax result. With my love for accounting and seeing the need, I started my bookkeeping business. I kept small business owners in the know as to their bottom line, and they focused on running their business.
I moved to Florida in 2014 and continued to serve a few of my clients from New Mexico. In 2020, I moved Keeping It Straight Bookkeeping & Accounting (KISBAA) to the digital world. Small business owners tired of spending time putting numbers into a computer program. Are you wanting to focus more on running your business and less on administration? Or are you wanting better control of your finances? If any of these are true for you, I’m looking for new clients. Let’s get together and let me show you how I can help you.

You will be able to make proactive decisions instead of reactive decisions. You will take control of your finances instead of the finances controlling you.
