What Advice Do You Have For Someone In The Beginning Stages Of Owning A Business?:

How Did You Get Started?:
My second big-girl job in Boston after graduating from Merrimack College was with Barbara Lynch Collective as an accounting assistant. After almost 7 years there in a variety of roles, I fell in love with restaurant finance. I continued on to work in other corporate finance departments (biopharma marketing agency and a tech start-up), but I always felt the drawback to restaurants. I realized many independently owned restaurants did not have the means to employ a full-time “in-house” accounting department - but they desperately needed good bookkeeping practices, which is why I started TP Bookkeeping in 2018.
What Are Your Favorite Products Or Services That You Currently Sell?:
Our advisory packages are my current favorite. It gives us a chance to really dive in with the business owners and talk all things numbers -- where they are, where they should be, where they should go from a financial perspective.
