AIS Solutions started out as Aurora International Services in 2000. This small business being run from the spare room in my home was born shortly before the birth of my daughter. I was in search of a way to achieve some work-life balance and spend some time with my young daughter, as I was very reluctant to put her in the world of daycare for 10 hours a day at such a young age.
Shortly after making the decision to start my business, the company I was working for decided to relocate to Houston, Texas. Not willing to uproot my family, the business became more important to my financial survival. With my first client being my former employer, I gave myself a timeline of 6 months to either get the business off the ground or I would go back to pounding the pavement and re-enter the corporate world. That was many years ago, and I’ve not looked back.
For several years, the business was only me providing personalized accounting and tax services to clients. I found that there was such a disparity between what “passed” for bookkeeping, that I decided to expand my services and bring on a team to deliver the consistent, reliable bookkeeping that is needed for every business.
