Keeping the Numbers Straight

February 03, 2014

Elaine Johnston has many years of bookkeeping experience with much of that experience with the same employer. As always, times change and Elaine knew that her time with that employer would soon end as he decided to retire. As valuable as her services might be to another employer, Elaine considered that it might be time for her to step out on her own and to be her own boss.

Elaine Johnston has many years of bookkeeping experience with much of that experience with the same employer. As always, times change and Elaine knew that her time with that employer would soon end as he decided to retire. As valuable as her services might be to another employer, Elaine considered that it might be time for her to step out on her own and to be her own boss.

Elaine was confident in her ability to handle the accounting and bookkeeping of her business, after all, that was her expertise. She wasn’t so comfortable in what steps she needed to take in order to get her business started and to market her business. That is why she contacted the Angelo State University – Small Business Development Center.

James Leavelle, Certified Business Advisor II, was signed to her as her advisor. James
worked with Elaine, showing her how setup her sole proprietorship. He and other staff
members worked with her to establish her social media presence and taught her how
to market her business online.

Elaine states, “The SBDC offers so many resources that have provided me with a better understanding of the essential tools necessary in starting my own business, such as a business plan, social media, service agreements, etc. My business advisor has been instrumental in the starting of my small business by providing me with expert advice regarding all aspects of my business.” Elaine started her business, creating one job.
