In 2003, Vanessa and Roy Long started Accounting Results, a bookkeeping service & tax preparation business, with six business clients and 77 individual ones. Since then, the company has grown and now manages taxes for 85 businesses and almost 400 individuals.
"The secret to not killing each other when we spend so much time together, is that my office is in the front & Roy's is in the back," Vanessa explains. "We try to stay out of each other.s way and just do what we each do best!"
Best part of working together?
"We can share the events of the day (including happy hour at Neptune Grill in Gulfport) and understand each other's dilemmas & celebrate the successes!" Vanessa says. "Roy is my best friend!"
Accounting Results is at 6500 Central Ave., Suite C, St. Petersburg. Vanessa and Roy can be reached at 727.322.0029.
