Steve Diamond says, "There was a time when the smaller business usually had to outsource its bookkeeping and accounting. Today, the ability to bring accounting in-house can provide timely information through reports that were once only available to larger companies.
"This helps tremendously in the area of decision making and forecasting. It also enables a business to better utilize the services of financial planners and CPAs."
After earning his accounting degree, Diamond worked with a wide variety of businesses including real estate, publishing, manufacturing and distribution through his accounting and business management duties for high-profile celebrities Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, and Lucille Ball.
When Diamond embarked on his own as a management and accounting consultant, he began to specialize in QuickBooks® due to its user-friendly interface and flexibility for different types of businesses. He adopted the title when his clients nicknamed him the "QuickBooks Guru".
In addition to NW QuickBooks Guru, Steve enjoys river swimming, skiing and cycling. As a co-owner of a music publishing company, he is also an active voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
