From handling my bookkeeping to my state and federal taxes they've done it all which has helped me focus on my business and I can make money. Thanks for all your help guys, I'm happy to recommend you to others every chance I get.
  • Wendy and Renea continually express their expertise, which allows us to focus our attention on the end products of our business. They have always been available on short notice to fulfill a request, which is greatly appreciated during periods of high volume.

  • Cassell Consulting has been working with Financial Connections for two years. When our CPA firm discontinued its bookkeeping services, we were fortunate that it recommended Renea and Wendy to us. From the start it’s been a good fit. Two things we especially appreciate are online access to our books at any time, and Financial Connection’s flexible pricing structure. We only pay for the services we need,
