I highly recommend Penny Lane's Job Costing Intensive for Contractors class! I am a bookkeeper for a contractor and I also wear a tool belt: one that I need to fill up with book keeping tips, tools, and tricks in order to give the contractor useful, meaningful reports about his business. Every week I was excited for class to start because I knew I was learning useful tools of information for my job. Looking back with experience, I agree with Penny that setting up a strong foundation for job costing is very important! Penny provides the necessary information for you, in this class, along with more wonderful tips, information, and guidance. This JCI class provides useful and pertinent information, it is heard to sum it up in a few words. So...All the lessons were helpful to me, however two stand out - the "Capture All Labor Costs" and the "Bonus" lessons. I especially enjoyed the "Reports" lesson; my boss was impressed that I was very excited to look at our reports. This JCI class has given me confidence to push myself when I was beginning to doubt my ability to do the bookkeeping. Thank you, Penny for offering a QBs class geared for Job Costing Contractors and their bookkeepers.

The pace was comfortable, did not feel like the material was rushed. You shared many extremely helpful tips throughout the course ... I learned a lot ( even in the parts that I thought I knew well)! Thank you so much for presenting so much valuable information at such an affordable price."
