JULY / 2009






 100 dollar bill






Dear Kim,

July is the summer month of celebration, family gatherings, picnics and vacations. There are a number of ways to enjoy these occasions and not be consumed with your mounting paperwork!


As we celebrate this 4th of July, please take a few moments to honor our country, the noble and brave men and women that are willing to give their life for our freedom.


As an American, I am so grateful for the abundance in my life. I do not take for granted what liberty and freedom mean to me. We all have the the capacity to exercise choice and free will. We have the opportunity to work at a profession of our choosing, have a home, raise a family and have religious freedom. Let us all be grateful for our country and the importance of respect for one another.



scam smarts



Keep an eye out and ears open!



Charity Fraud
This scam preys on the public's generosity in giving to reputable charities by soliciting funds for disreputable or fraudulent ones.


Foreign Lotteries
A call or letter tells consumers that they may have already won a big prize in a foreign lottery, obtainable merely by providing bank account or credit card information.


Foreign Money Offers
A "foreign government official" offers an opportunity to split a huge sum of money if he can just transfer funds to your bank account-and naturally, he needs your account information.

Identity Theft

This is on the rise! Be aware and take the steps to protect yourself as much as possible. Go to our website: www.WeKeepYourBooks.com and click on "NEWS" to check out our archived newsletter from March 16, 2009 to give you some tips on what to do to cover your bases! 


Internet Auctions
Though thousands of legitimate transactions take place online each day, sometimes goods purchased never arrive or are less valuable than promised.


Con artists look to gather personal information by asking consumers to "update" or "validate" their billing information, including credit card and Social Security numbers.


This very common scam tells consumers they have won something, and they need only pay a fee for processing, taxes or delivery to claim their prize.


Work at Home
This scam offers great payouts for little work at home, telling consumers they need only pay up-front supply, training or materials charges-charges they rarely recoup.

Investigation Gone Wrong! 


Small companies are not the only ones that worry about their accounting...


In Palo Alto, city offiicals and council members apologized for the city's role in the flawed Palo Alto Children's Theater police investigation (stated by the Daily News).


To make a long story short, the theater was under investigation for alleged fraud. When it was all said and done, the evidence clearly showed that the officials wereinvestigations-A sloppy bookkeepers as opposed to criminals.

It takes time, strategy and thought to make things happen. I discovered so much and continue to pursue a larger audience to grow my business.



I'm linked to the following sights:

I am a "newbie" and find the statistics staggering. After advertising and spending only $110 over a span of 3 days, there were 403,000 viewers that saw my ad through Facebook.


There is much to learn and as they say, this is a work in progress! To all of us that are looking for what's next, give it a shot! I encourage you check them out and see what you can create for yourself!
