You may recall our highlight from a few years ago when MBA alumna Lynn Talbott won the 2015 Small Business Person of the Year award from Chattanooga’s TSBDC. Well, there’s no stopping her! Lynn is pleased to announce that her company, HR Business Solutions, LLC won the 2019 Chattanooga Chamber Small Business of the Year award last month.
After Lynn won her 2015 award, HR Biz became an INCubator graduate in February 2016 and moved out to a site of their own. She expanded her staff and now employs 10 people. Lynn encourages them to maintain balance by offering 1-2 days per week of working from home. All of her bookkeepers are Certified or Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors.
Lynn’s business is now the largest independent bookkeeping company in Chattanooga. Lynn continues to teach a free monthly bookkeeping classes at the BDC/INCubator in addition to teaching QuickBooks Online classes. She is an enthusiastic teacher who’s good at answering questions on-the-fly without missing a beat. Clients can also receive custom, individual training at the HR Biz office, where they can discuss confidential financial matters with their HR Biz advisor away from distractions.
Lynn says, “Trust is an important element in our communication with clients. They expect us to provide accurate advice that will be in their best interest, so that’s what we do. We give them tools for their decision-making and let them know what is optional or what is required if it’s related to compliance, such as for GAAP guidelines.”
It’s evident that Lynn and her team have earned that type of affirmation with both clients and the
community by winning this 2019 Chamber award.
