Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

The consult was great and outside opinion was nice to hear. The write up of [Cary’s reviews were] very helpful in [allowing me to stay present in the consult and not having to take notes, giving me direction after our meeting.]

If you’re like most business owners, you understand the importance of good bookkeeping and the crucial role that it plays in making sure that your business is being run as efficiently as possible, but you probably don’t get excited about devoting more than 45 seconds of time and energy to the bookkeeping effort.
We’re here to make it easy.
With 16 years of bookkeeping experience, Abbi Tenaglia is prepared to help you as little or as much as you need. If you just need a little bit of guidance and coaching, she can do that. Or if you need someone to completely manage the process for you so that you don’t have to think about it at all, she can do that too.
In addition to QuickBooks, she’s also well-versed in PayPal, Square, 17 Hats, Amazon seller back office, Stripe, E-giving and LulaRoe back office.
– QuickBooks set up, training and ongoing support
– Bank and credit card reconciliation monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly
– Sales tax management & reporting
– Payroll services and tax management
– Nonprofit start-up registration with state and federal entities, tax filings, and donor reporting
– Year-end management and reporting, including 1099 e-filing
– Accounts payable and accounts receivable management, weekly or monthly
– Notary services
CPA Liaison Service:
Bookkeeping hourly rates are typically much less than hourly rates for a CPA. For this reason, clients often find it beneficial to engage Abbi to do most of the legwork for their tax preparation at the end of the year, then hire a CPA for an hour to check over the documents and e-file the tax return. This proves to be much more cost effective for the business owner than paying a CPA for several hours of work, and much more efficient than hiring an employee to manage the books all year. It’s a way to cut costs without taking on huge headaches.
Non-Profit Consulting Service:
There are so many needs in our community, and many community members have some fascinating ideas for addressing these needs. But it’s important for nonprofits to know the laws and to ensure proper management of the funds entrusted to them by donors. Abbi started and ran her own nonprofit for seven years before eventually merging with a larger organization. She’s been hired as a consultant by several nonprofits to share her knowledge in the realm of nonprofit management.

Hello and WELCOME to Altered Aesthetics!
My name is Jen Santoro and I am the owner and senior artist at Altered Aesthetics. Growing up in Southern California I always had a passion for all things makeup and beauty. After getting my first tattoo, I found another passion, getting more tattoos! In 2013, when I moved to Raleigh I decided to take a different path in my career and found permanent makeup and microblading, which brought together my passion for makeup and tattoos.
I am huge advocate of continual education in this industry, and am continually refining and perfecting my skills through additional cosmetic tattoo and microblading courses. By learning new techniques I am able to bring new and exciting services to Altered Aesthetics.
Altered Aesthetics has been a woman owned Raleigh business for a year now! Big things are coming and we have added another artist Kelly Denhalter, who shares our passion with brows. The goal of the team at Altered Aesthetics is to provide clients with an amazing set of brows that they will love and be proud of.

As a freelance website designer and developer, I developed TWTH Consulting with the goal to add a custom touch to each project I work on. I am a hard worker and trustworthy partner for your online presence and bring an edge of creativity & enthusiasm that will set your site apart from your competitors.
I like to first sit down with a company to learn more about their business and how it operates. I find that usually a project may extend beyond the need for just a website but perhaps for tools to also help streamline processes behind the scenes for the business. By taking the time to get to know you and your business better, I am best able to develop a site and tools for you with the thoughts of how the business will grow in the future in mind to make expanding your site easier as the company grows.
I have experience working remotely with clients all over the country and here locally in the Triangle. If you are looking for a website designer, please contact me today. I would love the opportunity to work with you on your project.
I am someone who is passionate about health and wellness. The most important piece to the puzzle is eliminating toxic chemical exposure from the foods we eat, and beauty products that go on our skin.
Your skin is your largest organ. It is important to keep our skin as healthy as possible. By utilizing products that are all natural and contain the vitamins and minerals our skin is lacking, we can create healthy, vibrant, young looking skin without the need for chemicals.
When I was introduced to Lemongrass Spa, I knew I had found the answer I was looking for. The products are amazing and I know you will love them as much as I do.
My mission is simple: Provide natural, non-toxic products that are clean and handmade fresh, right here in America
Lemongrass Spa Products offers a line of natural, chemical free, even GLUTEN-FREE body care products for the entire family.

This company is brand new to the United States and is taking the hair care industry by storm creating a powerful business opportunity! As a mom of triplets with a husband that travels, having a home-based business with an exponential opportunity for growth was one that I could not pass up!
