Today we’d like to introduce you to Shakari Tucker.
Hi Shakari, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Shakari Tucker and I’m the owner of Jireh Bookkeeping & Consulting. I’m a Dallas native, a wife & mother to 3 beautiful girls. For many years now, I’ve been the go to person for family & friends when it comes to financial, development & spiritual advice. I didn’t quite understand why earlier on, but today it makes perfect sense.
Immediately after graduating high school, I was blessed to land a banking job with no experience. I learned a wealth of knowledge in the banking & lending industry but it wasn’t my final destination.
After years in banking, I was blessed once again to work in yet another financial role without experience. This time in Accounts Payable, a department within General Accounting.
From that point on, I continued to grow & elevate in the General Accounting sector. I strongly believe that each opportunity was necessary & led me to where I am today.
Eventually, my love for business came to the forefront. I realized that the work I’ve done in the corporate world could be done for business owners of all sizes.
I noticed the disconnect between business owners and their financials and I wanted to provide an affordable solution to that problem through bookkeeping & consulting.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I would say it’s been pretty smooth for the most part. Majority of my clients located me & were ready to take their business to the next level.
At times, the struggle is relaying the importance of bookkeeping out to all business owners. It’s definitely something you can’t run from if you plan to grow & operate legitimately.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Jireh Bookkeeping & Consulting is a virtual bookkeeping & consulting firm that specializes in financial reporting, accounts payable & receivable, payroll, 1099 filing & training courses & project-related tasks that catapult business owners into growth.
We’re well known for our $97/month start-up business bookkeeping package but we work with businesses of all sizes.
Our goal is to show business owners that their financials will tell a story of where they truly are and not where they think they are. Bookkeeping is needed for filing taxes, applying for business funding & certifications.
Many business owners aren’t aware that a simple Profit & Loss statement can save their business tons in expenses and losses. It can show you that your price point is too low. It could also show you that you should cut back on supplies or look for a more affordable vendor.
My clients are always grateful to see where they are each month & they look forward to seeing their improvement. This is why I love what I do!
Who else deserves credit in your story?
I have to give God credit for leading me this direction. Without His guidance, I don’t think I would’ve taken this leap of faith.
My Husband has been the ultimate cheerleader & supporter. He takes care of the Marketing & brings so many suggestions to the table that makes things easier.
My business partners Kate & Julia has been a huge help with providing clients tax savings planning & tax education.
