I'm Karen Mason,
The Approachable Accountant
The thing is, I have a heart for small business, and I genuinely want to help entrepreneurs grow and prosper.
Like so many others, I provide bookkeeping, payroll and tax preparation services -- but I’m not like the other accountants. I spent more than 20 years in the trenches with start-ups and emerging businesses, doing whatever needed to be done to make it through the growing pains. Operations, marketing, HR, even some M&A analysis -- I just kept chugging along, gaining valuable knowledge, experience and insight into what works and what doesn’t.
As a result, I develop accounting solutions that consider the whole company -- its need, its goals, and its limitations – and provide actionable, decision-ready financial information to help them succeed.
I am well-rounded, down to earth, straightforward, pragmatic, and ethical. I believe that accounting services should be accessible, affordable, and valuable.
The current trend in the accounting profession is to offer standardized monthly package deals that use (and overuse) technology to maximize their profits, not yours. But I know that one size does not fit all. I believe that the best accounting services are a combination of people and processes enabled by the right technology, and the people always come first.
