The Logans have a combined 18-plus years working in the bookkeeping/accounting field for churches and public housing and property management agencies. Both graduated from McKendree University in 2008 with a bachelor’s in accounting and a minor in management, and both have their master’s in business administration.

Their goal is to provide the best quality services without the complexities or cost of hiring a full-time employee.

DiMaggio May and the SBDC have provided the Logans assistance with business plan development, marketing efforts and establishing networks.

“Jo Ann acted as an accountability partner for us, giving us the structure to keep moving forward and accomplish everything required to get our business started,” Ericka said.

“It is a pleasure advising the Logans,” DiMaggio May added “They are receptive to advice and ideas, eager to make their company succeed. The Logans are hard-working and dedicated to customer service, and I look forward to helping them along the way.”

Logan & Logan also participated in the SBDC’s 2019 Metro East Start-Up Challenge, which they found to be a highly valuable experience, providing guidance in a variety of fields.

In the future, the Logans plan to continue growing their clientele. They also expect to hire both part-time and full-time employees to expand their business.

The Logans also enjoy contributing to the community. In January, they held their first annual School Supply Re-Up, giving away school supplies for the start of the second semester. They are eager to pursue opportunities to give back.
