About Laura MacDougall

My professional background has been in the counselling and education fields. I am a self-admitted “Math Nerd” with a twisted sense of humour!  Just over 5 years ago I started my own bookkeeping business on a part -time basis working under the wing of the “Queen of Bookkeeping”, Edna Tobey.  I began contracting work with her existing client base, using Sage 50, and truly enjoying the logic the numbers provide.  I also appreciate the flexibility operating my own business provides me, so I can meet with clients when they have the time, and I can still be available to my family.  I absolutely LOVE bookkeeping, weird, I know!  I now operate Fortuity Bookkeeping Services full time from my home office and I provide everything from part -time services, quarterly & government remittance assistance, telephone advice, ground-up & Sage One-On-One training, to full Office Management Services for a variety of businesses in Pictou County. I thrive when I am educating my clients, when I am helping them get the most out of their bookkeeping services and learn more efficient ways of doing things. I want my clients to succeed! Teaching new business owners to set up and maintain their own bookkeeping system at CBDC-NOBLis a wonderful way to witness empowerment in action.  “Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision” ~Peter F.
