Kick Ass Entrepreneurs is a meet-up group that brings all sorts of creatives, entrepreneurs, techies, investors, and start-ups together to share and listen to the "business ideas, success stories, and struggles" of local Santa Feans. On Thursday, March 7 6:30-8:30pm Jamey Shelton will be sharing his story of his business NMCFO. You will not want to miss out on this chance to listen to an incredible and relatable business journey!
"Before turning back to tech in April, Jamey Shelton, founder of NMCFO http://www.nmcfo.com, will take the KAESF stage on 3.7 to share the story of his 5+-year-old business baby. Succeeding as a service business is never easy, yet Jamey’s managed to grow and expand from Sante Fe to Albuquerque through almost 100% word-of-mouth. As a one-stop shop for consulting, bookkeeping, and office management, including payroll, taxes, and all the other stuff you don't wanna do, Jamey and his growing team of exceptional bookkeepers and accountants clean up what others have left behind. Frankly, I’ve never seen someone so ga-ga about business owners understand their bookkeeping and accounting systems so they can make smart decisions. And if you’re like me and can’t imagine anyone making financial management fun, then you’ve gotta meet Jamey, because I’ve met him and spoken with several of his clients and he undoubtedly delivers on the fun-front." -Kick Ass Entrepreneurs of Santa Fe
