Pam Schloemer opened her bookkeeping business in 2008 under the name Schloemer Bookkeeping Services. But just three years later, the business has expanded to provide clients more options and on Feb. 16 she launched Schloemer Business Services.
After starting with a handful of clients the business now has 150 in 15 states, Schloemer says.
“We are not just bookkeeping,” she says. “What we are geared for and what we pursue are businesses with employees of one to 10. We do payroll, tax preparation, human resources — all the things that can be a major problem for a small business.”
Schloemer, who worked for 30 years for numerous Fortune 500 companies before starting her own business, says her company specifically wants to serve small businesses.
Schloemer’s team works with small businesses specifically on bookkeeping/accounting transactions, tax preparation, medical and supplement insurance, Trust and Guardianship accounting, business plans and budgeting, according to the business’ website.
“This is the very market that has been neglected for years but is the heartbeat of America,” she says.
Active with the Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and the Atlanta Executive Network, Schloemer said she hosted some 80 networking events last year. She was selected in November as one of Fenuxe magazine’s “Fenuxe 50” highlighting prominent members of Atlanta’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
Also, in August, Schloemer was named the Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce’s “Member of the Year.”
Schloemer and her team have also formed SBS Strategic Business Services, a non-profit organization that seeks to inform and educate small business professionals during the tough economy while also providing networking services. Cost to join SBS Strategic Services is $75 per year.
Schloemer’s clients are based in more than 50 industries, such as telecommunications, real estate and entertainment.
