Welcome to my little place in the world.

Here you will find a site that started out as a Lifestyle Blog. Since I have a bit of ADD, the site may seem to lack focus.  It’s just the way my mind works.  Being an entrepreneur, I have lots of thoughts that span many business models.  Ecommerce is a big part of my life so it takes up a good bit of this site.  QuickBooks accounting is my specialty and I love teaching others to DIY their own books using my online courses and coaching calls. I also love to work with Excel and offer inventory and homeschool tracking spreadsheets.  Recently, I added unique physical products to my offerings.  You can find them in the Southern Mom Flair Shops.  If you are an Amazon seller, who received an IRS form 1099-K, be sure to click the provided link on the menu for the reconciliation service.  Stop struggling with the numbers and let me sort it out for you.
