Cheryl Skynar kick-started her business, Skynar Bookkeeping, when she helped a friend do payroll so she could get to the neighborhood barbecue on time.
By pumping out the payroll for her neighbor at a record pace, she made a client for life, and, as a result of the referrals stemming from that day, launched a new full-time business.
Skynar’s experience with bookkeeping stems back 33 years, working with most of her clients out of her home office. In 2014, when she landed several Tech Town Detroit and Ann Arbor start-up gigs, she knew she needed to expand the operation.
