Here’s one of the questions we asked our clients when we interviewed them: “How has our company helped you in your success?”
1885 Grill – in Saint Elmo
My accountant referred me to the BDC. When I talked to him about making a checklist of how to open a business, he told me someone already beat me to it. He suggested I take Lynn Talbott’s class on how to keep books for your business.
By that time, my restaurant had already been open a couple months, so I kind of did things backwards. Most of the people in the class were only thinking about a business idea, whereas I came already having done a lot of what people had questions about.
One of the most helpful things from Lynn was the orderly list that showed which steps should be done in which order when starting a new business. She helped us sort out mix-ups along the way.
I’ve sent my managers to HR Business Solutions’ seminars, too.
You guys have been fantastic – we love working with Darlene and the whole HR Biz team.
The Owl Cove – in Ooltewah
I’m so glad HR Business Solutions helped us get our books set up on QBO and is able to handle our payroll. It’s helpful to have all these forms and statements taken care of. Having it outsourced frees up a lot of time and energy that I can put into doing what I enjoy, instead. And, you guys saved us money on payroll.
Ancla Seguros y Servicios – on Brainerd Road and also off 153
I found Lynn Talbott through Intuit. I had QB Enterprise and wanted to add QB POS. I needed an arrangement that would be cost-effective, efficient, and flexible for our growth. Darlene is great in keeping our books organized. We so appreciate all her hard work, especially since we’re opening a second office.
Townsend Atelier – in Downtown Chattanooga
I attended a Women Mean Business seminar where Lynn Talbott spoke, but my real introduction to her was through a referral from a fellow entrepreneur. What’s appealing about Lynn is that she understands the needs of small businesses. As a business owner, making sure our books are done right is another motivation. I have a soft spot for the INCubator because it’s where we began. And I appreciate the opportunity to support another woman-owned business.
Body Wisdom – in Saint Elmo
Someone recommended Lynn Talbott to me and when I met her I realized I had already taken one of her classes.
You all have helped me tremendously in getting my finances organized and with Body Wisdom marketing ideas. Kim Costa has been really helpful. It is a significant relief to know that there is a part of my business I don’t have to think much about, which allows for more time and energy to do what I love – therapeutic massage and bodywork.
Holes to Go – portable miniature golf
Darlene handles our bookkeeping and even though I’ve learned a lot about QuickBooks, I prefer to outsource because it’s a big help during our busy season. Having Darlene do it frees up my time. Outsourcing is much more efficient because it takes her so much less time to do than it would take me.
