After taking two college weekend classes to learn QuickBooks for our company's accounting needs and NOT getting my specific questions answered, I attended a QuickBooks seminar run by Randal and quickly learned that he had the help and answers I needed.

As a wife doing the books part-time, I am very thankful for his help and insight into our company's precise needs.
