Less Stress During Tax Time (and Beyond)

It’s not easy…especially if you try to do it all alone.

Building a business ain’t easy.  In fact, it’s probably the most stressful & worrisome “career” choice I’ve ever made.  However, it’s also the most rewarding choices I’ve ever made because I get to play and do the things that I love most almost every day.

I get it.  Every morning, I log into an inbox full of the next best thing.  The next must do thing…the next platform that you must be on…the next must join, money-making program.  

But when you really think about it.  When you really get down to brass tacks.  It’s all a distraction. It all becomes busy work, distracting you from what’s really important…the inner-workings of my business.  The business basics that really help me to grow and scale my business. And I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Megan (For Consulting)

I trust Joyce M. Washington, CPA, of TheCommonCents.com, to have my back while I focus on growing my business and serving my clients. She tells me exactly how healthy my business is by looking at my numbers. She alerts me to small problems so they don’t become big ones. Joyce makes me laugh while telling it like it is. She helped me figure out how to make my small business a PROFITABLE one. Joyce is the third CPA I have worked with. The first two came highly recommended, and knew nothing about online businesses. I highly recommend Joyce as an experienced, professional, strategic partner who will look after the financial side of your business as fiercely as if it were her own.

This is THE money tool that all solo entrepreneurs need.

It is what you want your accountant to do for you so you can see the results in all the important areas in you business and put focus where it is needed.

I feel so much more organized and I love having everything that’s important to my financial success in one place.

Joyce can talk in specific terms in dollars and cents or she can talk in terms of “mindset.”

Being able to combine the two is a great service

It’s deeper than the money.  It’s about more than just bookkeeping and accounting.

It’s about creating the business that serves me the best and serves my clients in the best way that I can.

Every time I question what I should do next, I go to Joyce.  She is my go to person.

I know she is going to tell me the truth, get me back on track.  I appreciate her direct, concise solutions.

She really understood the inner workings of my business, usually I have to do a lot of explaining when it comes to how I run my business or what my business even is but she got it right off the bat!

It’s more than bookkeeping and accounting people!!

Welcome To The Common Cents

Meet Joyce

Hey there…Welcome to The Common Cents.  I’m Joyce M. Washington, CPA – Founder + CEO and I’m glad you’re here. 

Before founding The Common Cents consulting agency, I worked in small accounting firms and real estate agencies as the corporate accounting manager.  It was my privilege to work with and run accounting departments big and small.  

Today, my team and I work primarily with small businesses and organizations – service providers that are experts in their respective fields…that leave the accounting & finance analysis to us.  

You can check out the specifics on the services we provide here on our consulting page.

Track Your Numbers. Grow & Scale Your Business.

Money in the bank is important. Believe me. I know it is… but growing your business requires a little more than just knowing your bank balance and hoping for the best.

It requires that you track not only your money but the efforts and strategies that got you where you are… so that you can do more of that to get you to where you ultimately want to be.

Sounds easy but it includes boring things like tracking KPIs and sales conversion…doing your bookkeeping and taking the time to analyze your financial reports.

We do all of that boring stuff every day… so you don’t have to.

a few ways my team & I can help you and your business:
