Okay, if you do like reading, here you go:

Forced Early Retirement provides a rare opportunity for a small to mid-sized company.

Although not easy to find release information, I was fortunate enough to be one of the first people to use QuickBooks back in Late 1989 with QuickBooks for DOS version ONE!!! Yes - I'm old! - LOL. After 15 years growing into a Manufacturing Manager for a very large conglomerate, I had obtained my BS in Accounting in 1993 and had been a QuickBooks ProAdvisor for over 15 years.

I then moved on to being employed as a CFO for one large company (Manhattan, 20 mil graphic design and printing) and one mid-sized company (Charlotte, 2-3 mil market research). These two companies as well as over a dozen+ firms I worked with part time, utilized my vast knowledge of not only accounting, but also manufacturing, and of course, IT.

Bottom line, bring me into your fold and you will get much more than just bookkeeping.

I fix, repair, mend and simply get your business well tuned as it should be. Starting and running a business should not be dictated by accounting. However, your business needs accounting/bookkeeping as any well sharpened tool you use in your daily money making portfolio. Just as a carpenter cannot drive a nail without the proper tool, your business cannot operate efficiently without managerial tools to help guide you through your financial activities.

How much will it cost you to have me on your team? Well, here's the Simply Affordable part.

*****$18.24(*) per hour*****

Yup. You read correctly. The opportunity part? You will get me and only me for 16 to 20 hours per week, or more if needed. I can work on and/or offsite - up to you. I will drive up to 15 miles one way but no longer than 30 minutes at this price. Of course I am open to negotiation depending on your situation. The best part??? NO PAYROLL TAXES!!! As I work on a few clients in any given year, I am allowed to be classified as a subcontractor of which you treat me as any of your other 1099 vendors.

I will get into more details with you when we meet. I only take on one client at a time. However, I am looking for one long term opportunity at this rate. Price shall be adjusted for short term projects. Let's discuss your needs and how I can be of service to you.

I have read a lot of bookkeeping and accounting ads on Craigslist and on other sites. I won't simply BS you with all the fluff.

This is me:
I am an old man ((2x198/6)-7), once a yuppie of the 80's. I wore hats ranging from Manufacturing Management of one of the largest companies in the world to wearing a CFO and COO hats in various sized companies. I won't say I'm ancient, but I retired early due to many back surgeries where I was then put out to pasture to live out my days chewing on grass...OY!

I was one of the first individuals to ever be certified with Intuit's QuickBooks back in '91, when CPA's laughed at me saying the software is useless and will never go anywhere. After a few years, they started calling me to train them on how to use the software. By the end of the 90's, CPA's would only tout QuickBooks, convincing their customers it was the "ONLY" way to go. It was about time! I even had several CPAs refer me to their clients to train them on not only the use of QuickBooks, but also set up special programs to interface between specific applications. Yes, I used to be a techy as well, but I won't delve into all that here.

Send an email by replying to this ad, For faster response, text me at 704-774-3696. Please text me first as I cannot always get a good enough signal to talk. After we connect, I'll either get back to you when I have good signal strength or when I get to a landline phone.

That about sums it up. I look forward to receiving your email and perhaps a meeting.

As not to waste anyone's time, I will work with Quickbooks Desktop Versions Only. I will not work with Quickbooks Online Version. Simply put, if you are not already running your business efficiently with QBO version, you will spend a great deal of time and money trying to get your books inline with this online version. I've already seen over a dozen companies lose their mind with this version. Sometimes technological changes/advancement isn't for everyone. If you really need me to, I will do my best to help you after I see what you need.

(*)$18.24 is the average hourly rate based on mix of various levels of accounting, from Basic Bookkeeping to Fixed Asset Depreciation Tables and everything in between. Most clients require 60%-70% bookkeeping at $15 per hour and the remainder in accounting services such as account reconciliations to chart of account repairs/creations, etc at $35 to $45 per hour.
