Karen is absolutely amazing. We hired Karen and Mindful Books a little over 10 years ago and at this point my business can’t do without her. She does my monthly quick books and weekly payroll in addition to keeping my files and paperwork organized and reconciled. Highly recommend for any size of business needing someone to handle the what I call “not so fun” parts of their business.

As anyone can see I'm not one to write many reviews but every once in a blue moon I come across a business that leaves me no choice. Karen with Mindful Books not only has been the best bookkeeper I have ever hired in 20 years of business, but also without question shows that she really cares about my business's success and needs. She has been and will always be (until she retires in Turks and Caicos) something my business can never do without. Its rare now a days to hire any position and find someone who genuinely loves what they do and also care about who they work for. Karen you are irreplaceable and I can't thank you enough for how much you have helped my business. When everyone finds out just make sure you leave room for me.
