“Our company’s finance department is now streamlined after many process improvements since hiring Bristol Financial Management Group as our outsourced CFO. With their management we are insured monthly accuracy and have real time reports. This has been a wise business development change in our company structure.” Thank you, Janice and Alyssa! Teresa Santerre Prestige Residential Construction.

“It was a lucky accident that I stumbled upon Janice back in 1991. It is no accident, though, that I’m still with Bristol Financial Management Group. I use them for everything because they do an outstanding job - year in and year out – regardless of the level of complexity. Nobody’s better in my book.” Tom Albro, President Pro-Scribe Documentation Services

“Bristol Financial Management Group provides a solid foundation of tax services and has been instrumental in providing key tax planning and preparation as well as general ledger work and accounting system support to meet our rapidly changing business requirements. The Bristol Financial Management Group takes time to answer questions and is very good at explaining complex tax issues that allow a business owner to develop sound strategic financial decisions.” Mark Madson MetroFax

“I found your strategic planning session(s) to be very well facilitated and it greatly helped our company to realize and document what we needed to do to grow. It was very powerful to have our management team spend the required time to brainstorm about where our company was going and what was going to be required of each of us to get us there. You helped us to visualize our growth path. We documented that our facility would have to be addressed to grow, that technology was an issue and we needed to work on our website. Within 1 year of your session, we moved our office to another facility (we grew out of the old one), we purchased new technology to enable wireless connections from our vehicles and telecommuting and we did a complete overhaul on our website. Today, we are growing steadily and I think this was the catalyst to get us going.” April Bettinger, CAPS, CGP General Manager Shirey Handyman Service

"Throughout our relationship, Janice continually displays an extraordinary degree of integrity, creativity, responsibility, ambition and leadership.  She has served us for many years as our CPA, teacher, advisor, meeting facilitator and business coach.  Janice has been instrumental in helping with strategic planning, new business development and employee hiring and placement.  I believe with complete confidence, Janice Bristol's high degree of professionalism and knowledge would be a terrific asset to any organization."
