This weeks Membership Spotlight focuses on Lydia Paasch.  Lydia is the owner of MLP Consulting & Design, LLC in Springfield, MO.  She has owned her business for 4 years and has been a member of MSA for 3 years.

Lydia is Advanced Certified in QuickBooks Online and Desktop.  She is also a Certified Public Bookkeeper (CPB) and is working on her certification as a Profit First Professional.  She has a BS in Accounting from MSU in Springfield.

Lydia’s most important skill is her ability to clean up a QuickBooks file.  She jokingly refers to herself as the QB Doctor, because she can fix almost any QuickBooks problem. Her greatest accomplishment was creating her own business.  Her biggest challenge is keeping up with all the new legislation that can affect my clients.

Lydia cannot live without her computer, internet, or QuickBooks.  She has clients all over the country and all her interactions are virtual.  Her favorite tip is “Embrace technology and move away from hourly billing.  Technology makes it possible for us to manage things faster and extend our reach further so we should be paid for the value that we are providing the clients, not how long it takes us.”
