TESTIMONIALS

“As a startup, we kept pushing off getting our books in order for another ‘less busy’ time. Instead, business picked up and it became clear we’d never have the time to get our accounting nightmare in order. A local brewery suggested I call The Virtual Office Goddess, and I’m so glad we did. Lily rolled up her sleeves and went to work organizing our expenses, getting our employees properly entered into the system and codifying our COGS. It took a lot of work, but thanks to Lily our books are no longer mysterious or stressful. The Virtual Office Goddess will always be part of our team here at Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha.”

“Lily handles all of the bookkeeping for my small business. She sorts through complex personal and business banking and creates a well organized package to my CPA. She does all of this in a timely manner at a price that is more than fair. I consider her a real asset to my company and I’d be lost without her!”

Saul Manley, Flatirons Duct Cleaning, Boulder, CO

“Thank you Lily for all of your work!  I really appreciate your keen eye for detail and exceptional speediness!  What an asset you are!”

Andrea Jackson, Action Jackson Services, Las Cruces, NM

“The Virtual Office Goddess was able to take a folder full of invoices, receipts, check copies and other financial documents and turn them into a well organized, fiscally sound set of profit and loss statements in a relatively short period of time. As a volunteer and Trustee with the Knick O’Time Horse Rescue, I was focused on care of the horses, fundraising, and thank you notes to our donors. As a result, I had not been able to keep up with all of the bookkeeping chores in the back office and was woefully behind. Lily not only cleaned it all up, she created procedures and forms for us to use so that our books will be up to the same standard of professionalism and timeliness as our stable management!”

Nancy Cebula, Knick O’ time Horse Rescue, Boulder, CO

“Thank you for creating my “Home for Sale” templates. Being able to easily place pictures and text into the same form has saved quite a bit of time – they are simple to use and look great! I use them on all of my new listings with added photos and text that easily fit into your templates. Thanks a lot for a great job well done. I look forward to working with The Virtual Office Goddess for a long time to come.”
