After working in and enjoying the stability of one job with one company for over 10 years, Eugénie – also affectionately called Marie, was suddenly laid off with over fifty fellow employees due to economical downturn. Being the resourceful, resilient, and optimistic person that she is, she soon started this business continuing what she loves to do, with the added incentive of being her own boss.
As a thorough and practical individual, Marie has done extensive research prior to starting her bookkeeping and consulting business. She knows what it takes to be successful and she was resolute in doing whatever it took to ensure her success. During the early stages of her research, she realized the services she was getting ready to provide was in great demand, and that fueled her passion as well as solidified that pursuing this business was the right thing to do for her. According to Marie “I saw the need for flexibility in a bookkeeper, one who can fit in not only with traditional businesses, but also with the many 21st century solopreneur businesses that do not have the physical capacity to accommodate a day to day bookkeeper nor the finance to employ one. At the same time, their bookkeeping need to get done, but they do not have the time to do it and may also lack the technical know-how to get it done correctly.” This is where Marie comes in. She works on as well as off-site and can facilitate a once per week, once per month, every quarter situation. Marie and her staff here at APO Bookkeeping is the perfect solution for small businesses who for one or many reasons have gotten backed up on their bookkeeping and thus, tax filing, and require multiple years of bookkeeping to be done in the shortest time possible.
Marie is very detail-oriented which is super important in the bookkeeping and accounting field, and she prides herself on accuracy and timeliness always operating in a professional manner. She has honed her skills over the years working in the tax, accounting, medical, construction, and retail and manufacturing industries, and continue to do so in many more industries. She earned her BA in Accounting at the City University of New York, and have since attained multiple bookkeeping and accounting certifications. She is competent in Intuit’s QuickBooks software, and have tutored QuickBooks at the Technical Institute of America. She also currently offers QuickBooks training to business owners as well as their staff.
She has streamlined the bookkeeping and accounting system for many companies throughout New York’s five boroughs, in numerous industries such as: architecture, photography, construction, daycare, consulting, fashion design, graphic design, engineering, medical, dental, legal, daycare, food, and continue their maintenance ensuring accuracy and timeliness.
