“Meeting Jackie Shaw was a pivot point from being a lucrative business owner to being an organized and confident professional. When I first purchased QB for MAC, I had a hard time familiarizing myself with the program, so I cut corners as to produce invoices and such but nothing added up and at the end of the year and trying to come up with itemized expenses and P&L’s for taxes was a nightmare. After meeting with Jackie, I provided the necessary information and she cleaned up my previous mess, and showed me how to correctly run all my business finances through QB. She even wrote down a list of notes for me and is great about answering questions when I need help. If you have doubts that you are not getting the full benefits of QB or are a new business owner trying to learn the program, I would highly recommend Jackie Shaw as a professional consultant.”

“Jackie Shaw has helped me on numerous occasions with correcting Quick Books accounts and setting up new ones; setting up budgets, learning to create and read reports correctly and many other helpful aspects of using my Quick Books program. She is extremely knowledgeable about the program and presents it in a very professional way making sure that I understand her instruction. I would highly recommend Jackie and will undoubtedly use her again in the future.”

 “When we first started our small corporation, I had some experience to get us started with QuickBooks but was completely new to the world of paying employees.  Jackie Shaw “aka” Get Organized!” set up a complete but simple to follow monthly QuickBooks payroll procedure for us that we can handle independently. Jackie then provides us an invaluable service of quarterly on-site meetings to complete necessary State and Federal quarterly reports as well as “fine tune” any Quick Books issues we may have.  For a very reasonable annual outlay, we receive multiple visits from a bookkeeping pro. Jackie and our CPA have a very good relationship so tax time and tax questions are much less of a hassle. This team is an indispensable part of our company and I consider them a key extension of our small staff. Jackie has also helped set us up with basic organizational methods that are making our business run much smoother. Any business whether sole proprietor, corporation or other entity would benefit from sitting down with Jackie and discussing how she can assist you in a bookkeeping or organizational capacity. I cannot say enough of how much she has helped us be a better organization.”

“As a first time start up business woman, I was overwhelmed with the myriad of tasks, financial set up and record keeping that are the backbone of a successful business. I felt inadequate to the task of getting my record keeping systems in order even though I was completely comfortable with the actual running of my business, luckily for me I was referred to Jackie by a business associate and my fears and anxieties were transformed into logical steps and educational sessions with Jackie that helped create a firm foundation for my company. When my business expanded and I found that I needed even more help in keeping records, Jackie stepped in and has been an integral part of the team ever since. GO! offers the new business person support on many levels and I highly recommend this service for any start up or existing company.”

 “Jackie Shaw and Get Organized! helped revamp our non-profit organization’s accounting system from unmanageable and unreliable beast to a smoothly operating provider of quality management information.  At the same time, she provided invaluable training and assistance to our new bookkeeper.  I can’t recommend her highly enough. ”

David, CPA and former non-profit Board Treasurer

“Our accounting position had been handled by two very different people from the start-up of our non-profit organization to the twelve-year point of stability.  We needed an entire revamp of procedures, methodology, and function for our newly hired bookkeeper.  Jackie did amazing things in a very short period of time.  In establishing a new accounting department, our business didn’t miss a beat in efficient operation.  She was easy to work with, patient with a variety of levels of understanding, and diligent in organizing us into a well-functioning department.  We learned that there is room for a good sense of humor in accounting – what a joy.  I can not begin to thank her for all she has done for us.  I would recommend Jackie for any job that required assistance with organization.  She simply is the best!”

“GO! has been a great asset to our company.  Jackie Shaw stepped in to help us recover an outsourced accounting arrangement about a year ago.  She helped us take our bookkeeping back in house, sort out the issues that needed attention and helped tighten our division of authority.  Our system is complex with multiple divisions and public and private sources with their own discrete reporting needs.  Jackie built specialized custom reports that improved our overall ability to manage our finances and report to our partners.  In addition, she works with our staff each month and recently provided training for our Board of Directors.  By helping us understand more efficient and effective ways of using our system, she has brought our skills and performance up while lowering her overall cost to the organization.  The work she did with the Board of Directors helped them better understand their responsibilities and our unique financial reports and will help them make better strategic decisions for the organization in the future.  I would highly recommend GO! to anyone who is serious about financial management and planning. (And Erin says you ROCK!)”

What Colleagues Say?

“Jackie, quite simply, is an amazing individual. Being a web developer, I work with many clients under a variety of situations and deadlines. Any project, large or small, requires time, input, communication and diligence from the client. As to be expected, most businesses have little time to expend on the necessary requirements of producing a quality website, often leading to extended deadlines and longer implementation times. When Jackie asked me to assist her with a website redesign for a local tech firm involving a very short timeline, I was dubious. There were many levels of personnel that Jackie had to manage in order to produce compelling and informative content, an intuitive user interface, not to mention spearheading new business collateral simultaneously. Any concerns I may have had about finishing the project on time and within budget were completely unfounded. Everything ran like clockwork and I have never seen a website come together that fast or efficiently. Frankly, I believe she has cloned herself. It is hard to believe that one person could produce such high quality work under a time limited scenario and STILL be an absolute joy to work with!”
