    If you are new, and in anyway in need of assistance – PLEASE EMAIL ME!  That being said, I know there is a back log of email I owe responses too.  

    Last week was not a solid week for me.  Which included the 1 hour of wait time and then 7 hours of trouble shooting with Quick Books to resolve the application issue and try to recover data.  I lost at least 3 weeks which I have to recreate, but it could have been worse!
