Gimmehand Client Spotlight-1

Can you guess what our client, GimmeAhand Academy, does?  Founded by Lachelle Bender, 18 years ago, GimmeAhand Academy is a 5-star nail school with top tier education for licensed manicurists and nail technicians.  

Tell Me More About Your Business.

Have you noticed nail styles are constantly changing?  GimmeAhand Nail Academy offers one-stop and comprehensive programs to maximize participants' know-how: for nail mastery and for building nail salon empires. Students are Nailpreneurs.   

In addition to the school, GimmeAhand offers a full line of nail products to be purchased on their website HERE or Amazon. 

What is your biggest challenge?

The biggest challenge faced by Lachelle was spending time on her business.  Everyday tasks always took priority.  Bookkeeping tasks had stacked up and it was scary sitting down to figure out where to begin.  Though she desperately wanted clean financial information to better understand her business, she didn’t have the time

What Lead you to BudgetEase?

When Lachelle applied for the 10,000 Small Businesses Program, she needed to provide up-to-date financial information. 10,000 Small Businesses recommended that she contact BudgetEase for help. We set up QuickBooks for her and helped her catch up.

Why Do You Find Having Someone Else Do Your Bookkeeping Helpful?

Having BudgetEase catch up on my bookkeeping helped me get back on track. They continue to help when I get stuck on a bank reconciliation with short Loom videos. My interview to get into 10,000 Small Businesses is this week. Now I can continue my journey to grow my business.
