  Let Me Introduce Myself....

Thank you for visiting this site. You are obviously on this page because you want to learn more about who I am, how I work, and most importantly, how I can help you.

I am the President of Lansdowne Business Associates, Inc. and have over 10 years experience helping small business owners just like you with QuickBooks® training and Small Business & Life Coaching.

Since becoming a Certified QuickBooks® ProAdvisor in 2003, I have re-certified every year to date. To continue earning this certification from Intuit, makers of QuickBooks®, I am required to pass an extensive exam each year.

Before becoming a QuickBooks® ProAdvisor I worked as a bookkeeper for a variety of small businesses and discovered how QuickBooks® could be used in many different ways depending on the type of business. One of the clients I worked with during that time hired a QuickBooks® ProAdvisor to train us. It didn't take long for me to realize that I knew almost as much as she did! That's when I decided to study and learn more -- eventually garnering the courage to take the ProAdvisor exam myself!

Once I started working as a ProAdvisor, I quickly realized that many business owners wanted and needed a sounding board for more than just their bookkeeping. I found that once we started revealing the truth of their finances, they were more open to discussing other challenges they were facing in growing their businesses and juggling their lives.

So, with that in mind, combined with the increasing popularity of life coaching, I enrolled in a Coaching Certification Program at Coach Institute. After completing the program in 2006, I began offering small business and life coaching.

I am often asked what the difference is between business coaching and life coaching. While there is definitely a difference, most of us cannot help but intermingle our personal and professional lives. That's why I offer a combination of both business and life coaching which I refer to in this web-site as consulting. And it's quite a natural fit actually since I started college as a Business major, but ended up receiving my degree in Education. While still in college, I developed a keen interest in Psychology and took several courses in that subject. Today, I am fortunate to work in a field that combines all my interests; business, education, and psychology.

In my on-going quest to leverage my skills and experience, in 2011 I became a contract trainer with a national seminar company. This has given me the opportunity to hone my seminar facilitation skills and to connect with many small business owners throughout the country.

I am accredited by the Better Business Bureau, a member of American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers, a member of the prestigious Cambridge Who's Who and was qualified for inclusion in the Cambridge Who's Who Registry of Executives, Professionals, and Entrepreneurs and active in two chambers, West Volusia Regional Chamber of Commerce and Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce.

I am proud to serve as an ambassador of the West Volusia, FL Chapter of WOAMTEC and to have previously served as chapter director.  WOAMTEC has proven to be a tremendous opportunity for me to share my skills and talents in encouraging women to grow in all aspects of their lives. WOAMTEC welcomes male members as well. If you would like more information about WOAMTEC, please visit www.WOAMTEC.com.

I thrive on helping people learn and grow; I enjoy the immediate tangible outcome of teaching QuickBooks®, I am dedicated to the longer-term results of watching my clients strengthen their business and find happiness in their lives, and value the opportunity to lead seminars and workshops that help small business grow!

I welcome the opportunity to help you create Your Business and Your Life, YOUR WAY.

This is what my clients Say...

"I have owned my own business for 10 years and have had several QuickBooks  advisors attempt to instruct me on the program.  All were inconsistent and time spent was not productive or profitable.  Thank God for Rhonda!   Rhonda  answered all questions, instructed me on what is best, workable and profitable for my businesses. She has taken any time requested that is necessary for me to understand the program and all being done in a language I can understand.  I can now actively work in the program and understand what I’m doing and why I’m doing it. Rhonda is professional, affordable, patient, consistent, and dependable.  Thank you Rhonda!"  Carol Bartolozzi, Serene Pavers & Stonescapes and Serene Garden Decor

"Rhonda has worked with our CPA firm's clients for many years improving their knowledge of QuickBooks and their flow of accounting information. I have found Rhonda to be of the highest character and great to work with. If you are looking for someone to help educate/improve your accounting staff, please accept this as my highest recommendation." John R. Dickinson, CPA, Dickinson & McDonald Certified Public Accountants
"Thanks so much! Your Quick Books training and assistance is the best I have experienced. I appreciate your "hands on" training and quick response to the problems and questions I have had while using Quick Books. You have taught me methods and shortcuts that are not in QB manuals. I will definitely call your company again."  Barry E.  A Florida CPA

"After working with the same company (and QuickBooks) for several years, it was suggested that we bring Rhonda in to review our processes and evaluate our efficiency.  Rhonda was very knowledgeable and helpful. I also found her to be a very inspirational woman, personally.  Since that time she has been able to assist me on several occasions.  I appreciate knowing her both professionally and personally.  She is an incredible woman and is definitely the Coach to call!"  Cheryl DeWald, Bookkeeper

"The QuickBooks  training was wonderful.  Rhonda met my objectives. She did not come with a canned presentation, she trained me on what I needed to know based on my level of experience. As a result of the training I now have a greater understanding of the features of the program and how to best utilize them for my business."  Shaun Porter

"Rhonda Smith has been extremely helpful as a QuickBooks advisor and as a business coach. She is very professional and personable, always available and quick to respond to my needs in a timely manner. She takes time to help teach the process, rather than doing it for me. I appreciate her expertise and business ethics. In addition she has been a profound coach, listening and directing me into processing for clarity in business and in finding ways to follow my dreams."  Cheryl Floyd,
Publisher Natural Awakenings Magazine

"In 2 hours, Rhonda coached me out of overwhelm and into peace of mind. My business finances will be organized and focused and I am wide awake about my prosperity. Being a QuickBooks Pro coupled with her ability to listen, question, and get to the heart of the matter are a supreme package. Thank you, wonder Rhonda! And I love that Davina comes monthly to keep my books organized. I love this feeling!" Linda Sacha, Author, Queen For a Day
