Blake Oliver is joined by Ben Sutton, the founder of Mazuma. Mazuma offers core monthly bookkeeping services, reconciliations, basic financials, and tax returns for a flat fee of $180 per month. Ben believes small businesses need services traditional accounting firms don't provide, and he wanted to give them the support they need. He found it possible to offer bookkeeping services at a low cost, as long as the scope of services and what clients can and cannot do is carefully limited.

I am an entrepreneurial CPA. Those two personality types often do not mix... I have found that risk and adventure makes life worth living while taking calculated and researched risks enables life to continue. My excitement for and interest in small business has created a strong desire within me to support and promote small business owner success across the country. My career has been concentrated on utilizing my accounting and IT education and experience to create value driven tools for small business owners.
