If you’ve read the stories on our side, it’s a familiar refrain. A small bookkeeper wants to grow but hits the limits of handling physical paperwork. Just a small switch to the cloud and a bit of retraining often triples the business of these firms and lets them scale as much as they desire. We have another story in this vein for you today. Today’s guest is Lisa Channell, founder and owner of Bonfire Bookkeeping. In our research to find guests who have taken this path, we started encountering her name a lot and reached out to her. In our interview, we talk about how she moved to the cloud by leveraging the power of QuickBooks Online and a special mentorship program they offer.

- How the cloud and a bit of mentoring helped her get the flexibility she desired
