  •  If you have a question about QuickBooks, you only have to ask Michelle Long. Her knowledge of QuickBooks is outstanding. I have found her webinars very informative and often refer to the material provided in the course. Her “Successful QuickBooks Consulting” book is a great resource I’ve re-read several times.  November 30, 2010
