What are people saying about our program creator ~ Chris Panek, CPA

"Chris Panek has been a vital part of the organizational system for accounting in my small business.  She has assisted me in setting up my day-to-day operations, along with saving me valuable time by keeping up with the current and ever-changing tax laws.  At the end of each year, filing my taxes has been a quick and simple process.  I feel I can go to Chris anytime and ask the questions I need to stay operating with efficiency.  Often times small businesses fail because they don't have organized systems.  Chris has helped in keeping my busy company on task and made me feel secure in the often-intimidating world of accounting.  We are a better business because of her expertise!"      Beth

"Chris Panek helped make our dream of improving our financial health and growing our business a reality.  Chris is creative, intelligent, flexible, and kind.  Through her patience and extensive experience, she has helped me greatly improve my comprehension and understanding of bookkeeping and accounting, which has increased my ability and confidence to make sound business decisions.  She continually works with us and gives us options that align with our situation and needs.  Prior to working with Chris, I lost sleep over whether or not our financial statements and tax information were correct - now, I have complete confidence that our financial information is sound and accurate.  To say that this is a relief is an understatement!!  With Chris Panek, you aren't treated like a number on a balance sheet; you are treated like a member of her family.  I can't say enough how grateful we are to her for her help, expertise, and guidance.  Whether you are considering hiring a bookkeeper/accountant, want to eliminate the stress involved with that tax appointment, or simply want a more personal and fulfilling relationship with your bookkeeper, do yourself a favor and meet with Chris Panek.  It will be one of the best decisions you ever make!"  Melissa
