Accounting Services

Running your business is tough.

It means understanding the issues, tracking performance, implementing processes, and making decisions. Entrepreneurship can be overwhelming, and without a clear path forward many business owners don't know where to begin.

Many of our clients come to us because they exist in a state of chaos. They don’t know up from down, if money is coming or going, or how to manage their business, process, or people. They are driven by their vision but have difficulty harnessing it into tangible results. Their business may be successful, but they don’t know why or how to bring it to the next level. Or worse, the business may be struggling and they have no idea what to do to get it back on track.

We are passionate about helping business owners cut through the chaos and develop a path forward. We bring the tools and expertise and you bring the determination. Once you resolve to run your business, magical things can happen.

Accounting & Bookkeeping

The foundation of any well-run business is a clean set of books. If you want to successfully run your business, you need information to make decisions. And if you plan to grow your business, your financial records are the first thing that investors and bankers will ask for when start seeking outside capital. Set yourself up for success by investing in bookkeeping services early. We provide on-site or virtual bookkeeping services for the following:

  • Payroll
  • Bank Reconciliations
  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Sales and Use Tax Filings
  • Benefits Administration
  • Employee Administration
  • Transaction Coding and Data Entry
  • Monitor and Maintain Accounting Software Automated Processes

As controllers, we provide financial oversight and guidance that goes beyond basic bookkeeping. Our focus is on implementing controls, developing processes, reporting on your performance and conducting analysis so your leadership team can make sound financial and operating decisions. Get the full time expertise and oversight your business needs, on a part time basis. We provide on-site or virtual controller services for the following:

  • Month-End Close
  • Preparation of Monthly Financial Statements
  • Implementation of Processes and Procedures
  • Cash Management and Forecasting
  • Financial Analysis
  • Financial Forecasts and Pro-Forma Statements
  • Annual Budgeting
  • Oversight/Management of Bookkeeping Staff
  • Business Strategy and Planning
EOS-Inspired Operations & Strategic Planning

Turn your vision into action.

We can help you get what’s in your head onto paper and develop a clear action-plan to help you achieve it. The EOS system, outlined in the book Traction and developed by Gino Wickman, is a simple set of tools that you can use to take your business to the next level.


The EOS system takes a systematic approach to addressing the common challenges faced by today's small business owner. We can work with you to implement select elements of EOS® or provide full-scale integration services including:

  • Vision Traction Organizer™ (VTO)
  • Weekly Meeting Pulse
  • Accountability Chart
  • Issues List
Recruitment & Training Services

So maybe you don't need a full-time Controller or Bookkeeper today, but as your business grows, an in-house person might make more sense. When you get to this stage, we are there to help you transition to the next level. We know the position and your organization, and we can manage the recruitment process for you by sourcing, interviewing, placing, and training qualified candidates.

What Our Clients Have To Say About RW.

" Creative professionals are often weak-to-hopeless when it comes to procedures, paperwork and other unsexy money matters. GUILTY!! [Resolve Works] turned our accumulated chaos into order quickly and with zero friction. [RW] keeps everything running smoothly and provide thorough, thoughtful counsel whenever needed. Super responsive, utterly pro and a true pleasure to work with. Be smart, hire them. They work miracles! "

Julie K, owner, strategic brand consultancy

" I was struggling to keep up with the bookkeeping for a growing retail business. I tried hiring inexperienced, part time help and ended up spending more time correcting and auditing than I had previously spent doing all the entries myself! Jill and her team at [RW] offered a professional solution that could grow with my business. They helped me correct the mistakes I originally made in the set up of my books and provided credible balance sheet and earnings reports. Jill and Miranda are helpful, responsive, and capable. They are so careful and detailed that I no longer worry about data entry. I am so happy with the value of the service I would not hesitate to recommend [RW] to anyone. "
