"I purchased a business with 3 employees. Overwhelmed with paper work and not having employees in the past, Sean came to the rescue. Not only did he teach me about the fundamentals of being an employer but he also organized my business so that I would have more time to do what I do best - grow my business. I can't believe that I can now do payroll with my cell phone! Paying vendors, payroll, and QuickBooks Online is now a breeze. Thanks Sean!"
