“The Quickbooks for Contractors Training was really helpful! Actually, it was more helpful than I expected!  The material was presented clearly, in an easy to understand format. The pace was comfortable, did not feel like the material was rushed … I appreciated the time for questions and answers.  You shared many extremely helpful tips throughout the course … I learned a lot ( even in the parts that I thought I knew well)!  Thank you so much for presenting so much valuable information at such an affordable price.”
