My passion to help others
Hi, I’m Veronica Wasek. I am truly passionate about helping entrepreneurs minimize bookkeeping and maximize profits. Let’s face it – nobody wants to spend too much time doing bookkeeping! This blog was born out of a desire to share simple QuickBooks Online tutorials, modern bookkeeping tips, and more. 5MinuteBookkeeping.com is now an award-winning blog focused on showing entrepreneurs how to leverage the power of QuickBooks Online, the cloud, and integrated applications to maximize profits and productivity. Bookkeeping shouldn’t take hours. It shouldn’t involve a shoe box full of receipts, or stacks of bank statements, or months of unrecorded transactions. You and your staff can do your company’s bookkeeping in as little as 5 minutes a day! Learn more about me and my modern accounting firm at http://www.QuickBooksOnlineExpert.com.
My business story
After spending almost 25 years working for others in the public accounting and corporate world, I was at a crossroads in my career. It was the height of the great recession and I had already been laid off from two jobs due to the economy. Feeling like I had nothing left to lose, in 2010 I started my own accounting firm, VM Wasek CPA LLC – with no money and no clients. It was daunting to think about how I would make it in the middle of a recession. I was really scared! I didn’t let my fear stop me, though. Now, I am priviledged to work with amazing employees and clients and to be able to make a difference in the small business world!
