State facility to provide jobs, massive economic benefit

State facility to provide jobs, massive economic benefit

Earth movers have been digging trenches and leveling grade, cranes are hoisting walls into place, and riding trowels are hovering over freshly poured cement to form more walls for more buildings.

Changes to make for ‘interesting tax season’

Changes to make for ‘interesting tax season’

Laura Strombom’s business seems, well, not quite by the numbers.

Oh, sure, All About Numbers Inc. offers a variety of personal finance and business services – income tax preparation, bookkeeping, payroll, accounting, accounting software support, business consulting.

But her business philosophy – or, perhaps more accurately, her life philosophy – seems a bit more personal than columns of ledger entries.

“A lot of it is taking the time to see the client as a person and not just a dollar figure,” Strombom said from her Feather River Drive office not far from the drone of Interstate 5. Her office has a cluttered, but organized look – neat stacks of papers and binders – with statuettes and images of horses on the shelves and hung on the wall, and a friendly 18-month-old Rottweiler named Berry Pie eager to lick a stranger’s hand when she is not bedded down behind Strombom’s desk.
