About the Yarny Bookkeeper

Hi, I’m Nancy Smyth – The Yarny Bookkeeper, let me take a moment and introduce myself.  After all, who am I to give you advice about your handmade business and bookkeeping?

  • I’m a yarn addict 😀
  • I’ve been a small business owner for 30+ years (currently my husband & I write, sell, and support QuickBooks add-on software for the construction industry).
  • I’ve been a professional bookkeeper for 30+ years – helping thousands of business owners throughout the U.S.
  • I have an Associates Degree in Accounting (yup I’m really one of those awful “number crunchers”).
  • I’ve been a QuickBooks trainer for 25+ years – helping thousands of small business owners and their staff setup and use QuickBooks to it’s fullest potential.
  • I’m a yarnpreneur and have my own handmade business.
  • I LOVE numbers!!!!!!
  • BUT, I’m not a CPA, so I won’t be giving you tax advice.

I’m not going to give you some BS motivational speech and say that bookkeeping for your handmade business is easy –  bookkeeping is tough and as a creative person our brains usually aren’t wired for working with all those numbers, not to mention those awful “Debits & Credits”.

What I will do, is take my own experience and turn it into a resource for fellow handmade business owners, so that amazingly creative people like you can handle their bookkeeping functions with confidence!

Happy crafting 🙂

Nancy
