My name is Shel Mitchell and I am a bookkeeper living in beautiful Durango, Colorado. Let me start with a confession- I did not grow up with dreams of becoming a corporate accountant or even owning my own bookkeeping company for that matter, but after almost 15 years of sitting behind a desk I found that something was missing. I really missed interacting with people and getting to know them on a more personal level. So then I began wondering, how I could change things up and add that missing piece to my life? Then it hit me. Why not start a bookkeeping business, since I know I love working with people and obviously love numbers.
So in 2017, I started Down to Earth Accounting and decided that I wanted to break the “Bean Counter” stigma and take a different approach to how bookkeeping is handled. I decided I wanted to focus on building relationships, understanding each client’s needs and offer the best accounting solutions on the market. The idea is simple- I want your business to grow because what is good for your business is good for mine.
