Our law firm engaged Parkway Business Solutions to provide bookkeeping and accounting services and we have found their services to be exceptional. Mike Snelson is always available to answer questions and provide excellent guidance. Parkway handled the transition from our traditional desktop QuickBooks program to the QuickBooks Cloud and it was seamless. As a result, we have saved substantial time handling month end invoicing and we have absolute confidence that the information generated in our reports and statements is 100% accurate. I would highly recommend Parkway Business Solutions to anyone needing bookkeeping and accounting related services.
"Ever since I hired Parkway for my bookkeeping services, my CPA has been happier,and my cash flow has become much easier to manage."
“Parkway amazingly took charge and reorganized my entire business… clearing up many years of errors. I no longer worry about my daily, weekly, and monthly reports because the Parkway Team does them for me.” 
Professor Nick Browne UCLA
Michael Snelson is A+ ! Detailed, attentive, courteous, meticulous, efficient, affordable. The man has a passion for his work. Michael managed to make a complex accounting not only tolerable, but in a strange way, on the strength of his comprehensive grasp of the issues and his clear and elegant solutions, almost pleasurable. That is saying a lot! Of course I would be pleased to retain him again, for issues big or small. The man and his work are extraordinary!
Nestor Diaz River Delta Brands
"Awesome dudes!" "The interesting things about this business is that it isn't just an accounting service, they try to cater to your financial needs..." "...They put an emphasis on doing things not the old fashioned way but trying to use updated tools like software to keep things online."

What is a Startup Accelerator:

Startup accelerator, also known as Seed Accelerators support early-stage, companies through education, mentorship, and funding opportunities. The accelerator experience is a fixed-term process of intense, rapid, and immersive education aimed at accelerating the life cycle of young innovative companies. Unlike business incubators the application process is usually open to the public, offering young entrepreneurs a the opportunity to pitch their idea to potential investors.

Initially most applicants are enticed to enroll by the potential investment dollars, however the overwhelming majority of the graduating entrepreneurs all credit the knowledge gained, connections to mentors and like minded individuals as the true value of a good program.

Starting With The Problem:

Every great product or services is related to a specific problem that is trying to be resolved, but the real question is, is your problem really a problem that needs to be solved?



Direct Cause, Indirect Cause & Leverage Points:
After defining the problem you wish to solve, It is time to dive deeper to determine the indirect causes related to your problem. Continue dissecting your initial problem until it cannot be broken down any further.

Validating your Assumptions with Evidence:
Research each direct and indirect cause for information that either confirms or denies your causal effect chain.  Be careful not to prove your solution, instead stay focused on if the problem truly exists.

Determine your Leverage Point:
Now that you have completed your research, select your best causal chain and define what is your leverage point.  Define the relationship between your initial problem, its direct and indirect causes, and finally your leverage point so that others will understand.
