Allen Street Consulting found an office! It's perfectly located, perfect size, perfect lighting, perfect price. I'm so excited!! It's currently painted saturated (e:strip) colors but (thankfully) they're going to repaint.

Hungarian mushroom soup

I made this recipe tonight (substituting mushroom broth for the chicken broth and adding more fresh dill, fresh parsley, tamari, paprika and lemon juice). I was doubtful while making it but was very pleased with the result. I think I'd try it again with a mushroom medley instead of just portobello. The reviews suggest using a high quality Hungarian paprika instead of something ordinary.

I need one jalapeno for the mushroom soup I'm going to make, and I was walking home from the office so I stopped at price rite. You can't buy single jalapenos there. Wtf am I going to do with all of these??

Cast & Crew in Mansfield, Pa., is so yummy. Those are spicy mushrooms in my pasta, not meatballs. The sandwich is a bastard chicken something...

I passed the New York State bar exam! I won't get admitted to practice until late February, assuming I pass the last hurdle - a "character & fitness review".

I'm also taking the PA bar exam at the end of February.

Now Open! Allen Street Consulting

We started Allen Street Consulting in August but we're just now getting around to announcing it to the (e:peeps). We offer small business and nonprofit consulting services that focus on improving financial and administrative management. We particularly like helping organizations through change - such as going from an excel spreadsheet or checkbook register to managing finances in a full QuickBooks solution.

We offer the following financial services:
  • Evaluate, select, configure, troubleshoot, fix, and support QuickBooks small business accounting software, QuickBooks Point of Sale, and integrated third-party applications. We work with QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier (all editions), and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions (all editions).
  • Set up, troubleshoot, manage, maintain, or file taxes for payroll. We're happy to talk with the IRS, NYS Dept. of Taxation and Finance, or Pennsylvania Department of Revenue to find solutions to your payroll issues and notices.
  • Set up, troubleshoot or manage sales tax.
  • Weekly/monthly bookkeeping.
  • Tutor users on QuickBooks or other software.
  • Income tax preparation, planning, troubleshooting
  • Streamline office procedures to make your office work more efficiently and to maximize the capabilities of QuickBooks for business management.
  • Financial analysis and reporting.
  • Grant reporting for nonprofit organizations.

We also offer other business and management services:
  • Project management, including selection and management of outside consultants.
  • Research - our slogan is "Questions Answered. Problems Solved."
  • Writing & editing of grant proposals, business plans, and research reports.
  • Group facilitation for visioning, strategic planning, software requirements, etc.


Why choose Allen Street Consulting?
We know what we're doing and if we don't know every detail, we research it. I have been an independent consultant since 2003, achieved my QuickBooks certification in 2005, and graduated from University at Buffalo Law School in May 2010. My partner, who will join full time in January, has 10 years experience in a very relevant job and will have an impressive credential soon that gives him the same superpowers to practice in front of the IRS that I will (eventually) as a lawyer. We're really smart nerds and we're also very good at communicating and listening.

At the moment, we're looking to expand our regular customer base with bookkeeping and payroll services.

Here are my reviews in the QuickBooks ProAdvisor referral database:

(We might need marketing help. Thoughts?)
