Kind Words

Kickstart Accounting has been with me since the beginning; when I barely had profit to show. To be honest, I was so embarrassed. But I knew that I would grow and I’d want the best support possible to help me do it, and they were with me through $20k investments, to $120k profits. As a busy business owner, I feel relief that I can stay in my zone of genius and the KSA team keeps an eye on my numbers so I can make the next best business decision through each quarter to grow + hit my goals.

Keeping the numbers straight is such a wonderful thing to delegate to women who love numbers and make them easy to understand!! love the personalized recommendations, the support and the quick response times when I have questions. Kickstart made implementing payroll an ease!

– Ann Konkoly

The team at Kickstart Accounting has been amazing. As a start-up founder, I juggle many hats and found that keeping my accounting and QuickBooks up-to-date was nearly impossible. Luckily, I found Kickstart which not only keeps my books in order, but they also help me think through my financial goals and support those goals with weekly updates. I couldn’t do business without them.
