“I cannot say enough good things about Merrilee and her bookkeeping services. She was with me as I started my own business, guiding and teaching me through the entire process, setting me up for success. Over the last few years as my business has grown and evolved, Merrilee has seamlessly done the same alongside me. She’s an invaluable resource, responds within an hour (if not less) when help is needed, and the best part?…..MY WALLET LOVES HER TOO. Worth every penny and more for the astounding services she provides. Use her. Share her. You’ll love her.. (And so will your business!)” (Read Full Review)
“At one point, I remember my accountant telling me that it takes most people five years to understand the business of running a business. Yikes. This is my recommendation to potential clients: Don’t wait five years. Wherever you are on the small business timeline and no matter where you are in the country, hire the delightful Merrilee now. You will be glad you did.”
“Merrilee, I have no idea how you’re able to communicate such complicated stuff in such a clear, step-by-step manner. Truly impressive!”

“Merrilee has been an integral part of starting my first business. My professional skills are all in order but my bookkeeping?…not so much. She has been so kind and patient as I have struggled to learn about QuickBooks. She has been readily available even during the tax crunch season. Merrilee has helped me relax and encouraged me to have fun during this awkward learning period. I actually enjoy sitting down and doing that bank reconciliation now, just like she said I would. I highly recommend Merrilee to anyone who needs rescuing from their bookkeeping angst. Working with her has been a pleasure.”

“Rescue Me Bookkeeping helped me get back on track with our QuickBooks account. I had taken the community college training prior to purchasing the computer program and (somehow) a year passed before I did purchase. Merrilee helped me set up my accounting procedures. She modeled and then had me enter transactions. Two key characteristics of her style: Patience as I asked the dumb questions and she explains or demonstrates the procedure again and she responds to calls or emails the same day!”

“With Merrilee’s help in QuickBooks tax time was a breeze this year! Her flexible hours work great with my schedule, she was able to find the answers to all my questions and set up my QuickBooks for easy reconciliations and inventory. Now I am able to focus my efforts in building & maintaining clients instead of fighting with my bookkeeping. Merrilee definitely rescued me from the stress of bookkeeping! Thanks again for all of your help.”

“I run a small brand consultancy and managing my own accounting is not my favorite thing. Merrilee was a perfect fit for me. She allowed me to do as much as I could do with QuickBooks, then she came in and cleaned everything up. She was flexible, fairly-priced, and quite capable – exactly what a small business needs as they are trying to grow. I would recommend her highly for any assignment large or small.”
