I'm Jacob Christensen a Professional Bookkeeper for Small Businesses

  • I live in South West Michigan with my wife and three kids. We live out in the country with trees all around, little happening, no street lights, and we love it.

  • I love doing bookkeeping! To some it is boring, but I actually enjoy it - you get to see how the whole operation works together and do detective work looking for trends or issues. It is very satisfying to have everything put together in the end.

  • I have the utmost respect for business owners. Each business is incredibly valuable and personal. It's rewarding to help other small businesses and see them succeed. Be proud of what you built!
