“Yes, Amanda is an expert in Xero, but she is a GENEROUS expert.  If she couldn’t do backflips inside the software, she could not as generously share her knowledge.  She has offered so much support to countless new bookkeepers it is no wonder that so many follow in her footsteps and build a firm on Xero.  The bookkeeping world has been begging for a resource like this and it couldn’t have been written by anyone else.”
