When Something Goes Wrong - This is what we hear:

  1. "Help! My entire business is on QuickBooks and I have no way of knowing who owes me money!" - Click Here To Read An Interesting Story

  2. "It looked so simple"

  3. "We have upgraded many times before with no problems"

  4. "We did not back up QuickBooks"

  5. "We were in a hurry"

  6. "The Bookkeeper said they knew what they were doing!"

This Is Only The Tip - Of the Iceberg. Everything we publish in our blog posts, articles in other websites, and anything you can find on the web is nothing compared to what is available to you as our client. We show only the basic tools to open your mind to the possibilities that are available to you. The best finish carpentry tools in the hands of a golf professional without proper carpentry training will not produce anything near to what a skilled finish carpenter can. The same can be said about the best construction business consulting and accounting tools in the hands of a skilled finish carpenter. And I say that with respect and admiration for everyone in construction.

When You Become A Client - Then we can tap into our resources of knowledge and strategy banks. We use the reports hidden in your QuickBooks in order to diagnose and understand your construction business and develop plans and help you implement a path to success for you and you alone because every contractor has unique Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (S.W.O.T. Analysis) that when understood can lead to a Strategic Roadmap which cannot help but make a lot of money.
