The First Phone Call - Is the starting point of our mutual relationship. I may receive an initial request of information by email (which I am happy to receive) In the end - everybody gets to chat with me once, twice or even three times before making any kind of decision about our services. Initially we are chatting informally over the phone.
The Next Step - If you are within driving distance of our office at 19909 64th Ave W. Lynnwood Washington, 98036 Suite B - 2nd Floor is to set an appointment for an in-person visit at our office.
Setting The Appointment
I Want To Meet And Chat With The Person - Having issues with the bookkeeping. Are you having issues with the office manager, a spouse, a contractor or someone else? I want to know who is doing the bookkeeping now and how it is working for you.
Bring All Your - Paper, letters, invoices and bank and credit card statements. It can come “unsorted” in a big giant box. We know what to do with it when it arrives. We have a system to get documents into QuickBooks For Contractors in a logical, easy to understand format that is used to create useful financial reports and other QuickBooks reports. This meeting is a management discussion and the construction company owner must be present to win the opportunity to work with us.
Our First Meeting
The First Meeting - Takes place in our office. We offer a FREE (1) Hour Consultation. Question: Why Did You Call? What Are The Issues? It’s your turn to talk. The purpose is to clearly understand your issues and to develop a workable solution. I need to understand you, your business, what you do, how you manage your business, you goals and your employees.
Our Mutual Purpose
After The First Visit – Most things can be handled via phone calls, word documents, spreadsheets, PDF files, USPS mail, faxes, web drives or dropping by our office. As a contractor you have more than enough hats to wear so we handle the routine paperwork and you handle the parts of your business that only you can do.
I Am Developing A Plan - To blend our systems and processes with your expectations for a set of results that is fair to everyone. Part of my function is business management. Almost always we quote Flat Rate. It is the “Best Value” and usually it’s my recommendation for you to become an outsourced client. Once I’m comfortable in my knowledge about your business I will give you a proposal customized to fit your particular needs.
