Here’s what our clients have to say about working with us…
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.
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!!
