I am the President of Rhonda H. Smith, 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, for about 5 years 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 2011 I also combined my love of training with my love of travel and became a national trainer for Park University Seminars (Fred Pryor and Career Track) teaching a variety of business related topics including QuickBooks.
I am honored to have the opportunity to be the Director of the West Volusia, FL Chapter of WOAMTEC. 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.

I am a member of American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers and 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.
I thrive on helping people learn and grow; I enjoy the immediate tangible outcome of teaching QuickBooks®, and I am dedicated to the longer-term results of watching my clients strengthen their business and find happiness in their lives.
I welcome the opportunity to help you create Your Business and Your Life, YOUR WAY.
