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 is professional, knowledgeable around grant funded programs.” Renée Hunter Executive Director, TOGETHER! for Drug Free Youth “I have been working with Tricia McCullough for the last 5 years. This was by far one of the best business decisions I have ever made. Not only is the service exceptional but the fees are reasonable. Tricia has helped with my tax returns, my quarterly and employment taxes. She has also helped me with my profit and loss and balance sheet information. She has spoken with my banker to help explain financial questions. She has helped in planning a budget. I really appreciate that she is always available to me. I consider her a valuable business partner. I highly recommend Tricia McCullough.” Bob Duda, Duda Insurance Agency, Inc. “My husband and I have been clients of Tricia McCullough for a few years now.

I would have no problem recommending people to use her.” Jacqueline SwinDell-Hurst Windermere Real Estate/NCW "I’d have to say that Tricia McCullough has been the most helpful, reliable, and thoughtful person I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. She’s professional, organized, good at follow-up, and patient in explaining accounting and financial matters.

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.” Holly Davison- Foundations for Learning LLC, Chelan “I have been using Tricia McCullough for my bookkeeping services for the last two years.

We know we can count on her for solid professional guidance and will continue to do so well into the future.” Jon and Dana Mann- Invoice Options LLC, Kent “From the beginning of our small business, Tricia came in and set us up perfectly.

I have recommended Tricia in the past to other small business owners and will continue to do so.” Adam Vognild Owner- Inner Circle Gym, Wenatchee “Tricia has been a valuable resource. She has consistently provided accurate and timely reporting. Additionally, we depend on her for her payroll and tax skills. We trust her and appreciate her friendly service very much!” Gene Cenotto Treasurer- Wenatchee First Church of the Nazarene “A small business like ours has to be agile while keeping a lot of balls in the air. Tricia is fast to respond to questions, gets the work we ask her to do done in a timely manner, and has suggested ideas to make our business more profitable. 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 “Tricia McCullough walked into my office at a time when our QuickBooks program had us overwhelmed. Twenty minutes later Tricia had us up and running and better than ever. That was my introduction to her and I have been amazed with her ability and knowledge of tax issues and corporate organizational issues every day. 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. I have had to do very little and her firm has taken care of payroll, taxes, profit and loss, and any other accounting needs. She is very progressive in thinking and processing all forms and reports needed. She is great to work with!” Roger Gardner- Safebathtub
