A Little Bit About Myself

I am extremely proficient in all versions, editions and releases of QuickBooks.  I am currently booked out 3-4 weeks in advance, I have never done any advertising or marketing, 99% of all of my work comes from word of mouth. 

I typically work long days, 6 to 7 days a week. I teach one night a week at the college, I go into businesses to install and teach QuickBooks and I do bookkeeping for several small businesses using QuickBooks.  In addition I also do payroll and quarterly payroll taxes for several businesses.

I currently have 2 part time employees and my office is located out of my home/office in Oak Lawn, Illinois.

I am a member Emeritus of the Intuit Advisory Council. Intuit chose 17 individuals from across the country for a two-year term, to travel to their corporate headquarters in California a couple of times a year, to facilitate new features and functionality for future versions. 

I was recruited by Intuit to become a member of their Speakers Bureau and speak at engagements on their behalf.  There are 60 individuals on this panel across the country.

I love what I do and I think my clients and students appreciate my enthusiasm and understanding of the program and my patience as an instructor.

Training at local business

Some other organizations where I have done installations, set up and training include:  Homer Township Fire Department, Palos Heights Library, Palermo’s Restaurant, X-Press Mart, KODA Restaurant, All About Closets,  King of Tile, Mylex, Midas Mufflers, Montessori Schools, Local Union 681, Merit Benefits Group and RSM McGladrey Accounting to name a few.
