We are very fortunate to have a first-rate bookkeeping team in Supporting Strategies | Los Angeles. They have done a terrific job with the four accounts they manage for us, and they adapted very quickly when we recently migrated the books from one of those businesses over to a new accounting platform to better integrate with our CRM software. Managing Director Mark Wald is acting as an indispensable fractional CFO, supporting my role as a strategic CEO to grow my company. My goal is to scale my business 4X in the next few years. This would be impossible without the expert, professional help and counsel that I get from Mark and his world-class team.
I want to let you know how pleased we are with our Supporting Strategies team.
Our Financial Operations Associate is one of the most pleasant controllers I have ever met. She is smart, pays attention to detail and controls, meets commitments and is easy to communicate with. Of course, our Financial Operations Manager is an A+ as well, though we rarely have to talk to her now.
We may be setting up an additional company and will be sure to use your services should it come to pass.
Thanks again to you and your team.
One aspect of starting and running a business that is particularly challenging is accounting operations. One thing I can’t recommend enough is, if you don’t already have the tactical expertise yourself to record revenue, report and analyze financial results, and prepare for tax compliance, look for an outsourced solution. We have that with Supporting Strategies, and they are phenomenal.

During the uncertainties of the pandemic and all the resultant changes that our medical practice went through, Supporting Strategies pulled through and was able to keep us afloat by facilitating loans and working with our vendors in order to maximize profit and reduce overhead during this difficult time. We couldn’t have done it without them.
My team at Supporting Strategies absolutely helped! All the work that Supporting Strategies did for us helped us secure a very large business capital loan this year. Without our financials being in order, I don’t think we could have accomplished this. Thank you!
