It’s What Our Clients Say That Matters Most

We could toot our own horn, but we realize that what’s really going to earn your trust and confidence is hearing how we’ve helped other business owners like you, directly from the business owners themselves. That’s why we encourage you to take a few minutes and read the client testimonials below and hear about their experiences working with Mary Jo Watson of Balancing Act:

We are a small business. Mary Jo Watson with Accounting Solutions was recommended to us by The Columbia Bank back in 2009. Since then, MJ has streamlined our record-keeping and accountability with her excellent Quick Books Knowledge. I would highly recommend her services to any business looking to increase their handling of the accounting functions of their business.

—John Sprecher
President, Environmental Solutions-CBR, Inc.

As an established business with 12 years behind us, we’ve had a few accountants and bookkeepers over the years, each with their perks and their quirks. When we brought Mary Jo on a few years ago, I shared with her that while my team and I could confidently fulfill the marketing and graphic design needs of our clients, that I needed someone I could trust to make sure bills were paid on time, that we were paid on time, that we were purchasing equipment when and how we should, and someone who could proactively help me guide the financial aspects of my business, not just spit out a report of numbers that needed an interpreter. Mary Jo has been that partner — one who is open to explaining what the numbers mean and how they impact my business. I appreciate her patience and insight, as well as her ability to explain the contents within our QuickBooks database in layperson’s terms.

President, Incite Creative

Mary Jo has been a lifesaver for our businesses! She is incredibly helpful and gives you exactly what information you need to get Quickbooks sorted out on your own. She has been invaluable for getting our businesses back on track and very reasonably priced!

I just got off the phone with Mary Jo. She got back to me fast when I left a message explaining my LLC situation. She was very friendly and did not feel intimidated by my limited knowledge about state taxes etc. She offered valuable advice on how to move forward with my LLC.

She made it all make sense! I’ve been in business for 13+ years and was stumbling along with my “accounting”, the least favorite part of my job. I hired Mary Jo to come check it out for me. What I got was a simple, organized process and training on the best practices for my record keeping, payroll and taxes. I am more self-sufficient which means less is paid out to accountants and late fees. She made it fun and easy to understand. So, I am more tax and QuickBooks savvy, yet I know that Mary Jo is but a phone call away should I error in my accounting ways.

I have worked with Mary Jo since 2009. A primary concern of mine is availability. I have never waited more than a couple of hours for Mary Jo to return my calls. Being a CPA, she offers free accounting services. I absolutely love working with Mary Jo and so will you.
