Before I hired Ariane, I thought I could do this myself. I’m a decently-smart business person, and very organized. What was going to be so hard about tracking my income and expenses and preparing for taxes? I was wrong. It’s a nightmare that I don’t want to deal with. Too many details to manage. As a result of working with Ariane, I’ve got peace of mind (priceless) that my financial affairs are in order for my business. Now, I know someone else is helping me, as a solo-preneur, watch the bottom line. I also feel a sense of relief that at tax time (and year-end) that I won’t become a crazy person. She is easy-going, non-judgmental, optimistic and a great communicator. Ariane is excellent at explaining certain bookkeeping principles to a non-accounting mindset. She is professional and efficient.
