Do you know your business credit score?​

How much do you know about your business credit score? Do you have one? Do you even need one? If so, why? How is it calculated and how can you improve and/or protect it?

Divvy published a Guide to Credit Scores for Business Owners which answers these questions and more. Check it out!

Join Dan Levy of Schitts Creek

We normally don’t highlight specific conferences, but we thought this one would resonate with our broader audience. We also think Dan Levy is pretty great!  Elevate 2021 will bring together powerful changemakers – from celebrities and activists to accomplished practitioners. Together these individuals are working to educate and inspire all those who attend the conference to elevate the world around them. It’s virtual, and it’s free!

Let us know if you plan to attend. We may see you there!

Meet the Newest Member of our Team!

We are excited to introduce the newest member of our staff, Logan Stocks. He is Pam’s oldest son and the first male addition to our staff.

Logan is currently an honors student at Western Carolina University where he is studying Business Management. He began working with us as an administrative assistant and worked his way up to become a junior bookkeeper. He’s a certified QBO ProAdvisor and he is quickly becoming an integral part of the team.

When Logan isn’t learning or working, he is usually hiking and enjoying the great outdoors in and around Cullowhee. He is also an avid soccer fan who pulls whole-heartedly for Chelsea.

Please join us in welcoming him to the team!
