“The Numbers in Boxes team has simplified business operations for me.  Their work has allowed me to focus on my work to help my clients without worry about finances and operations.” -- Bill Denney, Human Predictions LLC, Cambridge, MA

“Numbers in Boxes helped me establish a process for organizing and maintaining my books. From the day to day to the big picture, I now have a more streamlined process for running my small business. The team is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Books aren't fun, but they make it fun (really!).” -- Jennifer Wood, Herd Nerd SPICE, Arlington, MA

“Lindsay and Numbers in Boxes is a godsend for a small business owner, especially one that has struggled to find a good bookkeeper. She provides far more than a full charge bookkeeper. She offers strategic advice on financial reporting and key finance related business decisions. She is a smart, direct, honest, and efficient partner. I cannot recommend her highly enough!" -- Jessica Morey, iBme, Concord, MA

“I found Numbers in Boxes at a time when I was truly wearing all of the different hats in my small business.  We were growing in profit, but also in disorganization.  Lindsay helped to get us back on track with new bookkeeping practices that worked.  She and her team have become an indispensable part of my business.” -- Phil Gutowski, Boat Rx, East Boston, MA

“Ava was an incredibly patient, calm, well-organized teacher who was able to simply relay the concepts and walk me through exactly what I needed to know to accomplish my project. She was quick to respond and provided timely follow-up to questions. She radiates enthusiasm for her job, which makes even the most challenging concepts & tasks easier to take. Rates were reasonable AND the peace of mind is priceless knowing that your accounting tasks will be done accurately!” -- Diane Meehan, EML Consulting, Chelmsford, MA
