Why Choose CORE Business Services and Joan Powell?

Travelers Rest and Greater Greenville, South Carolina

Joan Powell, Accountant and Bookkeeper

Joan’s goal is to use her vast practical experience in accounting, bookkeeping, business analysis, planning, forecasting, and cost control to help small business owners with their business accounting needs. In her experience in the corporate world, she had to take complicated information and make it simple and understandable. In other words, better business decisions related to price, cost, sales projections, and cost control could be made.

Small businesses can benefit from this same type of approach. This will increase revenues and reduce costs. Of course, this is what sets her company apart from other bookkeepers. To the small business owner, this translates into a better view of the business. Not to mention better cost control and pricing decisions.

She offers a wide array of services and will customize her business to your needs. Her concept is to work with small business owners to develop and optimize a plan aimed at increasing profits and outperforming the competition. CORE Business Services offers both a monthly bookkeeping and accounting service as well as a one-time consultation. The consultation covers the implementation and training of accounting and bookkeeping practices and procedures.
