About Augustedge

We Are Your Solution For Success

Success isn't a race up a giant staircase absent of any barricades, divergences, or drop offs. Success is a winding loop that swerves up and down in all directions that can cause its followers to crash or bounce, sink or swim, fall or fly. Determined and restless as they are, those that become successful trek forward on this unpredictable journey with their head held high and their eyes focused on the goals ahead. While those around them fall to the wayside, the determined sprint the straights, scale the mountains, navigate the obstacles, and most importantly, they never give up. Sometimes, even the strongest, the boldest, and the keenest will face a cliff's edge so tall, with a rift so wide, that they cannot move forward on their own. Some try to succeed alone and end up barely hanging. Others sit and wait. Those that progress are those that realize they need help in finding a solution.

When it comes to financial challenges and strategy, no matter which situation you find yourself in Augustedge can help. At Augustedge we are all about finding quality solutions to financial conflicts and paving efficient and sturdy paths toward your success. When you reach the cliff's edge on the winding road toward your goals and need a helping hand, we'll be there. We will find your solution for success!

She’s professional, organized, good at follow-up, and patient in explaining accounting and financial matters. She’s a good teacher, yet is willing to admit if she doesn’t know something (and then goes in search for an answer). She’s always expanding her knowledge base. She can help me cut to the quick when business decisions seem too confusing. As a small business person, publishing the Go Phonics Reading Program, I feel Tricia has helped us stay on track.”

In other words, instead of being a cost, she is an asset for our business.”
Mike Cassidy Editor- NCWGoodLife.com

“When we first contacted Tricia our business was good but our record keeping was a small disaster. Tricia was able to correct our statements and correct all the nuances that are part of QuickBooks. Most importantly, our balance sheet reflects our true financial position. Tricia even made a house call when we needed immediate help. Thanks to Tricia we are able to keep growing our business, and she is the only one we call when we need assistance. Thank you, Tricia!”
Ron Karrie Kehl- Lakeside Limousine Tours, Chelan

Her organizational skills and on time delivery is exceptional and above question.”
Donald E. Miller- CFO, Curtis Tile Stone Inc.

“I have a young business of four years. We manufacture, sell and install products across America. Tricia has been doing our accounting for the past three years and it has been great.
