Kim Pollard

Bookkeeper Girl Inc. – a leading online bookkeeping service located in Denton, TX – announced today that it is America’s newest (and possibly only!) partner-licensed, online bookkeeping service. Bookkeeper Girl, which was started six years ago by Kim Pollard with a laptop, a loyal client, and an idea of making bookkeeping affordable for small businesses – has decided to expand its business nationwide by offering bookkeepers the opportunity to license Bookkeeper Girl in their local area.
“I have always had the vision of taking Bookkeeper Girl nationwide and making it America’s online bookkeeper,” says Pollard. “By moving Bookkeeper Girl to a licensee model, I’m able to make this vision a reality and help other entrepreneurs make their dreams a reality as well.”

Bookkeeper Girl first opened its virtual doors in 2008 and opened its first physical office later that year in Denton, TX. In 2009, Pollard expanded her business with a remote office in Dallas. In 2011, the company added an office in Austin, TX, and in 2013, the office in Abilene joined the burgeoning company. The online, remote bookkeeping business has remained quite successful during the tough economic times of the past six years. Bookkeeper Girl has an online system that uses technology to provide a personal touch without all the expense and time drain of a face-to-face meeting.

"We have clients who have started their business during this time, and we are able to handle a whole department for them," Pollard said. "We do everything online and save them so much money."

They use Intuit QuickBooks for managing their clients’ finances, and through tools such as Yammer, Skype, email, and texting they are able to communicate securely and efficiently to provide their clients the experience of having a bookkeeper on staff without the added expense. From Day 1, Pollard believed that through the use of technology she could reduce the cost of payroll and bookkeeping to just pennies on the dollar and provide small businesses with an essential service to help their businesses grow. And Bookkeeper Girl has grown right along with them!

Adopting a Licensee Model

The other vision that Pollard had from the very beginning was to be the number one provider of outsourced bookkeeping and payroll services nationwide, but Pollard was impatient with the model of expanding one office at a time.
“After working this business for six years, I knew that the business model worked,” says Pollard. “I’m very big on not duplicating effort needlessly, and every time I developed a process, I did so with the idea of replicating it across the country in other offices. After opening several satellite offices, I realized that I now had a repeatable formula that I could share with other entrepreneurs in order to expand Bookkeeper Girl more quickly and help even more small business owners.”

Bookkeeper Girl is launching its licensed model with seven consultant locations that it lovingly calls the Super 7.

These locations include:

Abilene, TX – Sandra Hernandez
Dallas, TX – Mary Powell
Dallas, TX – Cindy Waldrop
Denton, TX – Ellen Ryfle
Illinois – Lisa James
Iowa – Katherine Northway
Kentucky – Darlene Prather
