OUR STORY

JSJ Consultants was born in 2016 out of a passion for helping entrepreneurs and business owners grow their enterprises. The partners had spent their careers watching too many of these owners get bogged down in the paperwork, so they set out to do something about it.

 

JSJ believes that small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. We respect the hustle, as we know the majority of entrepreneurs wear multiple hats. With over 60 years of experience between the Management Team and the Advisory Board, JSJ can help you save time and money on your bookkeeping and other financial services.
