About Backyard Bookkeeper : In early 2008, Julie had been juggling several part-time office manager positions at local small businesses when she realized the part she really loved was the bookkeeping. Alex joked that Julie was spending more time in QuickBooks than on Facebook, so why not turn it into a business? And so Backyard Bookkeeper was born. As it turns out, Julie finds bookkeeping fascinating. She loves looking at unique financial transactions, analyzing their moving parts, and coming up with the best strategy to record and track them.  Alex, on the other hand, has been an entrepreneur since her childhood in Hungary, and loves nothing more than to help small businesses grow and provide jobs to others. Together, we have built Backyard Bookkeeper and Backyard Payroll into organizations that provide remote part-time work to qualified bookkeepers and payroll specialists who enjoy the work for its own sake. Julie passes on her skills to the next generation of bookkeepers, teaching them big-picture thinking and best practices in accounting, while Alex leads our company strategy and vision. We are not your average bookkeepers! Read more about us below.
