Heide’s Bio: 

"Bookkeeping is fun!" said no one, ever! Well, not quite, because Heide Baer thinks it can be. Heide appreciates the astonishing ecology of business tools available, and its ability to empower business owners. She is passionate about helping other small business owners achieve their goals. Heide's love affair with bookkeeping started with a high school accounting course, followed immediately by a couple of college ones. As often happens with teenaged love affairs, the relationship was short-lived; but fortunately, it reignited for Heide later on as an entrepreneur. She now shares this love through her work as a bookkeeper.
