Eight years ago, I was an employee struggling to find happiness at my corporate job. I started doing bookkeeping as a side-hustle on my weekends and days off until I realized how much more I was enjoying working with my clients and for myself than I was working my corporate job.

Hi! I'm Samantha "Sam" Hallburn, owner of Simplified Accounting Management, Inc. and PBS Accounting and Tax Solutions, and the creator and director of The Virtual Ascend.
After working in the corporate world for nearly 20 years, I decided to branch out on my own and start my bookkeeping business. What began as a side-hustle has grown over the last eight years into a successful, full-time, six-figure career that has allowed me to live out dreams I never thought could be possible. I'm able to support a team of five wonderful women. I have the freedom to travel and spend my time on my own terms, as well as explore additional passions in my career including speaking and teaching.
Now, as a National QuickBooks Online Educator, I'm so excited that I'm in a place where I'm able to share my knowledge and empower other women to take the first steps toward creating the lives they've been dreaming about!
"These courses are always packed with information. I'm always amazed at how Sam can anticipate the students' needs even before they have finished asking a question. Her knowledge & expertise come through every class, and her teaching style seems to reach all types of learners. I really appreciate Sam for offering these courses!”

"Sam is very knowledgeable in her profession and is a great teacher. She always provides me with good information and solutions, helps me understand and learn how to utilize QBO
functions effectively. With her help, we were able to make a significant improvement in our workflow, project tracking, budgeting, and more. I would absolutely recommend Sam for
everyone who wants the best out of Quickbooks and any accounting related situation."

“Myself and Alco Homes, LLC could not more highly recommend working with Sam and her team. The entire team is extremely responsive, accommodating, and thorough. Sam's knowledge of Quickbooks and our business accounting needs is extensive. I started out a complete Quickbooks novice and after working with Sam, I feel very confident within Quickbooks and taking over the bookkeeping/accounting for our business. The investment is 100% worth it!”
