Perfectly Imperfect Pups (PIPs) aims to build a community of like-minded, kick-ass dog rescue ninjas that strives to save the lives of at-risk dogs.  Our name says it all, PIPs’ primary focus are medical and special needs dogs that are often overlooked. We call these dogs “PIP-abled” which means perfectly imperfect. A dog that may need a wheelchair, is missing limbs, deaf, blind or in need of some extra love and care – this is our niche.  While we love our PIP-abled dogs; puppies, healthy adult dogs, and seniors have our hearts as well. We are inclusive of all dogs in need.

If you’re like most business owners, you understand the importance of good bookkeeping and the crucial role that it plays in making sure that your business is being run as efficiently as possible, but you probably don’t get excited about devoting more than 45 seconds of time and energy to the bookkeeping effort.

We’re here to make it easy.

With 16 years of bookkeeping experience, Abbi Tenaglia is prepared to help you as little or as much as you need. If you just need a little bit of guidance and coaching, she can do that. Or if you need someone to completely manage the process for you so that you don’t have to think about it at all, she can do that too.

In addition to QuickBooks, she’s also well-versed in PayPal, Square, 17 Hats, Amazon seller back office, Stripe, E-giving and LulaRoe back office.

 

Bookkeeping Services:
– QuickBooks set up, training and ongoing support
– Bank and credit card reconciliation monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly
– Sales tax management & reporting
– Payroll services and tax management
– Nonprofit start-up registration with state and federal entities, tax filings, and donor reporting
– Year-end management and reporting, including 1099 e-filing
– Accounts payable and accounts receivable management, weekly or monthly
– Notary services

CPA Liaison Service:
Bookkeeping hourly rates are typically much less than hourly rates for a CPA. For this reason, clients often find it beneficial to engage Abbi to do most of the legwork for their tax preparation at the end of the year, then hire a CPA for an hour to check over the documents and e-file the tax return. This proves to be much more cost effective for the business owner than paying a CPA for several hours of work, and much more efficient than hiring an employee to manage the books all year. It’s a way to cut costs without taking on huge headaches.

Non-Profit Consulting Service:
There are so many needs in our community, and many community members have some fascinating ideas for addressing these needs. But it’s important for nonprofits to know the laws and to ensure proper management of the funds entrusted to them by donors. Abbi started and ran her own nonprofit for seven years before eventually merging with a larger organization. She’s been hired as a consultant by several nonprofits to share her knowledge in the realm of nonprofit management.

Inside-Out Strong – Creating Strong and Confident Teen Girls

This is a program developed to guide teen girls to know who they are, strengthen who they are inside and out, so they can serve and lead their generation.

We envision a world where teen girls lead with authenticity and serve in love. We believe they will rise to become confident teen girls who seek transformation on the inside rather than perfection on the outside, Inside-Out Strong Girls is a program to build up the hearts, minds, and bodies of young women. We offer online adventure courses and local workshops for teen girls and the women who lead them.
 
Many teen girls struggle with confidence and knowing who they are. Our culture likes to tell them they are not enough. We, of course, believe differently. Our mission is to guide them in discovering their identity, establish their core values, and develop their inner and outer strength to unleash the leadership potential within. The world begs desperately for their commitment and talent and we want to provide the guidance they deserve. Inside-Out Strong Girls was created to build up the hearts, minds, and bodies of young people, strengthening them inside and out, so they can become the leaders that this generation needs. We aim to revolutionize their hearts, minds, and bodies so they can revolutionize this culture. We also believe that mothers, teachers, and coaches are a key ingredient in developing strong girls. We link arms with those influencers by offering discussion opportunities throughout and assisting them in raising up strong girls, inside and out.
 
The half-day workshops attract like-minded mothers who want to get involved in helping young women grow. Rebecca Arsena, a mother of one tween girl, was impacted greatly after attending a workshop. “As a mother who had suffered from an eating disorder in my early teens, I am acutely aware of the importance of raising my daughter to have a strong sense of self,” she said. “I was so grateful to have stumbled across the Inside-Out Strong workshop and was excited to share this with my 11 year old daughter. I feel like the workshop laid the foundation and opened the door for conversations that my daughter and I will have as she enters her teenage years.”
 
The workshops have three “work-ins” to build up the heart, mind, and body. Mothers and daughters spend time discussing their identity, mindset and body image. Then three workouts are introduced: interval training, yoga, and Zumba.  It’s a transparent environment allowing the mother-daughter relationship to flourish through honesty. It also opens up opportunities to discuss these important topics in the future. 
 
Online “adventures” are available that include a 10-week curriculum focusing on creating a healthy and F.I.T. heart, mind, body and relationships for the teen girl. In those 10 weeks, girls receive four mentoring sessions with other female leaders to help guide them through their transforming journey. “We believe strong girls become strong women and the healthy ripple effect impacts communities and cultures. A ripple effect that happens one girl at a time from the inside-out,” Schall said.  “Our vision is to cultivate confidence in teen girls guiding them to become leaders who are ready for the adventure of their life!

Our founders are Haley Gray, and Christine Schoaff. This company was born when Haley experienced care giving for both of her parents simultaneously, while caring for four small children, and working a full time job. Some of the caregivers which worked with her parents were fantastic. Some of them were not. Some of them outright neglected Haley’s father who had dementia and Parkinson’s, leaving him sitting in a soiled diaper for hours, and leaving him alone while on duty. Other caregivers weren’t so bad, and they just neglected to scoop the kitty litter box, resulting in a nasty, smelly apartment.

Haley spent hours talking to the good caregivers trying to understand what motivated them, and what didn’t. It became clear that most of the good caregivers consider this line of work to be a calling. Frankly, you can’t pay someone to do this kind of work, and expect them to want to do it. They have to WANT to do it. So, the question becomes- how do we attract, and retain the industry’s best and most caring caregivers? We surveyed a number of caregivers and other personnel in the industry to understand what was important to them. Then we set about to start a company which provided those things which were most important to the caregivers.

From the client side of the equation, Haley interviewed a number of other clients, as well as geriatric care managers, pharmacists, and others, to ask them what the best practices are in the industry. By combining their suggestions together, and putting together a business plan as part of Haley’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Concentration at Duke, we had the basis of the company. We use technology where it is appropriate. We also use various low-tech approaches to care giving, such as better access to supervisors, random, unannounced drop-ins, and a note-book sharing system so that caregivers and family can communicate with one another about the state of their loved ones.

What this means for you is this- we aim to provide the best of both worlds. That means, better care for our clients, and a better work environment and conditions for our employees. It is quite simply, a win-win.

We have an amazing team of caregivers and managers in this business. Everyone’s first priority is customer safety, and satisfaction. We aim to be an Extension Of You. To make sure that Your Standards Are Realized.

Frustrated that good vintage style dresses are either extremely fragile, the wrong shape for today’s bodies or too expensive, I turned to creating my own designs.

I started making clothes for my daughters back in the 1980s. They’re all grown up now, very much into the Vintage scene and my youngest asked if I could make her a dress.

So I returned to college, studied garment construction, pattern drafting and tailoring techniques, developing the skills to make any women/child a beautiful bespoke dress, jacket or outfit for any special occasion.

It’s so lovely to return to exhibiting at craft and vintage fairs, meeting so many new people.

And now I’ve started passing my skills on through a series of sewing classes; from beginners taking their first steps in sewing, to giving intermediates the confidence and experience they desire to create their own garments and designs.
