“I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and own my own company that provided accounting services for small businesses,” says Phyllis Johnson. That was what drove Phyllis Johnson to eventually leave her corporate job as a Director of Finance & Operations for a small company in Las Vegas and make the exciting and challenging leap into the entrepreneurial world, launching PKJ Consulting - Accounting & Operational Services for small businesses in March 2015.
Phyllis continues by saying “My passion is allowing other entrepreneurs to focus on their passion while PKJ Consulting takes care of their back end needs.” Phyllis Johnson believes that her continuing education allows her to learn and grow as a person and also allows her to fully help other entrepreneurs. She holds a B.S in Business Administration with a minor in Accounting and Finance from Pepperdine University, a MBA from UNLV with a focus in Entrepreneurship Management, her Professional in Human Resources Certification, is QuickBooks Online Pro Certified, Microsoft Office Certified, and is currently working on becoming an Enrolled Agent. Phyllis has served in various positions including Assistant Controller & Human Resource Manager and Accounts Receivable Supervisor. She also has extensive experience working in a wide range of industries including telecommunications, gaming, restaurant, real estate, insurance and more.
Phyllis is now dedicated to working with entrepreneurs and business owners throughout the United States. While her focus is primarily on providing accounting services such as bookkeeping, payroll, budgets, financial statements, taxes, and more Phyllis also draws on her experience in Human Resources and Operations to really help small businesses with the myriad issues they face. From operations and payroll to financial statements, taxes and records clean up, Phyllis’s expertise, determination, and drive add value to everyone she works with. PKJ Consulting also provides individual services such as resume and cover letter writing, job search assistance, business plan writing, and training in QuickBooks and Microsoft Office applications.
“The Women’s Business Center opened up doors I didn’t even know existed,” Phyllis explains as she talks about getting her name and brand into the market, her work with other groups, regular classes at the Microsoft store in Las Vegas, her involvement in the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Vegas Young Professionals, and upcoming QuickBooks classes at the Nevada Women’s Business Center. The Nevada Women’s Business Center is excited to be a part of Phyllis’ entrepreneurial journey and is looking forward to working with her as she expands her business and becomes one of the “go-to” people helping small businesses.
