As a little girl I was always starting businesses, ice-tea stands; shovelling snow; raking leaves... I cannot remember a time when I did not have the entrepreneurial drive. In my twenties I started a candle kiosk in Market Mall, which I named Shadows. It was an incredible experience, and I mainly learned by trial and error. I worked all the time, I learned the value of being able to delegate. During these seven years I hired three bookkeepers, although they all were independent I found the experience very frustrating. Communication was poor, the made no suggestions, they asked no questions and one time my paperwork came back smelling of cigarettes! Due to this experience, I learned to do my own bookkeeping. When my rent rents in the mall increased yet again, and the mall underwent another major reconstruction, I decided that it was time for my next adventure. I attended SAIT, H & R Tax School, hired mentors and threw myself into my new passion... Bookkeeping. Somewhere along the way, I fell in love with the numbers and the information that it provided me as a business owner. I was also passionate that I could offer other entrepreneurs a different experience in a way of true support. As a life-long learner I have continued to take many courses in business, book-keeping and personal self-development to further my skills and knowledge.
Laurel Williamson, thank you for your compassion and expertise when working on my files. I used to get so stressed listening to everyone around tax time ? I'm in a much happier place thanks to you! Love ,love love how you talked and coached me through the number's and paperwork ! Your confidence has certainty helped release the anxiety I carried. Not only did you do a bang up job with my files but you also educated me on things I can do to be more prepared for the following year, and that is empowering!

"I LOVE Laurel. I HATE bookkeeping... which makes me love Laurel even more!! She not only does my books and sets up simple systems for me to follow, but she also educates me (or tries - I'm pretty resistant to anything accounting oriented) so that I am slowly becoming more knowledgeable and more organized. Best of all - she makes it understandable.
Her professionalism and sparkling, kind, personality are wonderful for any entrepreneur who has struggled with this area of their business. I'd highly recommend Laurel for your bookkeeping needs--and for your peace of mind!" - Jannette Anderson, Expansionist at Positive Results
