Client Testimonial: How hiring a specialized accountant alleviates stress and brings profit.
Any entrepreneur will tell you that running a business is no easy feat, and running a quilt shop is just as hard. One of the huge challenges of running a business is bookkeeping, taxes, and accounting. You don’t have the time to crunch numbers, you need to focus on your employees and your customers. That's why hiring a specialized accountant that knows your type of business is one of the best decisions you can make.
Karla is the owner of Cherrywood Fabrics, a quilt studio that specializes in hand dyed fabrics. Cherrywood Fabrics goes to shows and expos all across the country, selling hand dyed fabrics . She needed an accountant that knew her business and she found that with Curtis Accounting Solutions.
Why did Karla Choose Curtis Accounting Solutions?
She was referred to Curtis Accounting Solutions by a friend, but as she says, it was an easy choice because of “the obvious understanding of the quilt industry and knowing your background (Jacob, the founder of Curtis Accounting Solutions, is a co-owner of a quilt shop) there wasn’t any trying to explain what my company did. You just kind of got it right away, because we’re kind of unique”.
