Starting a Bookkeeping Business

whilst learning bookkeeping - is that possible?

Learn bookkeeping skills and at the same time learn to implement strategies to starting a bookkeeping business that will allow you to live your dream life. No previous bookkeeping experience required!

How is this possible? 

Ben Robinson CPA of Bookkeeper Business Academy has developed a Bookkeeper Business Launch course (formerly called Bookkeeper Business Blueprint) that will take you by the hand and teach you step by step all the skills and knowledge you need to: -

  • do bookkeeping and 

  • to starting a bookkeeping business and 

  • to prosper in it

Most courses will only teach you how to do bookkeeping or how to start a business, but never both alongside each other in one course.

The Bookkeeper Business Academy is accredited by the International Certified Bookkeepers USA.

Ben provides a free 3-part introductory video class which explains more about bookkeeping and business which will help you decide if the full course is for you. 

There are no strings attached to signing up for this free initial training.

Even if you don’t end up enrolling to the full course this free training will give you great insight into this type of business.

Starting a Bookkeeping Business

How Does the full course help you live your dream life?

  • You discover how to provide valuable service to your clients so they are willing to pay top dollar. 

  • You work where and when it suits you. Want to work after the kids have gone to bed? Want to work in the quiet space of a library in the afternoons? 

  • You earn enough profit to pay for family holidays or buy a new car or…. what’s on your list?

  • Entrepreneur Magazine in August 2016 declared bookkeeping to be the number 1 most profitable business to operate.

  • You can study full time or part-time and run your business part-time if that’s what works for you so it’s great for stay at home parents, or for people in paid employment trying to break away from that to work for themselves – you study at your own pace and take on only the number of clients that you can manage with your time available.

  • You can work virtually so are not bound by geography, meaning you can have clients from another part of the country – paperwork and details can be exchanged through emails and other online platforms.

What Skills Do you need to have already?

  • You do not need any previous bookkeeping knowledge or business experience to do this course.

  • You do not have to be good at math! You just need basic math skills of adding, subtracting, multiplication and division and to work out percentages which you can do on a calculator because bookkeeping is mostly about sorting and categorizing financial transactions and Ben will show you how to do that.

  • You do not have to take exams or be certified to be a bookkeeper running your own bookkeeping business, although it can help with credibility.

  • You do not need to have advanced academic skills to do this course – basic education and your own interest and motivation are enough.

  • You do need to be willing to work hard because this is not a get rich quick scheme and it’s up to you to put in the hours of study and implement what you have learned to achieve results.

  • You do need to be approachable and caring (for your clients).

  • You do need to be happy working with numbers and computers and with online (in the cloud) software.

  • You do need to bring a good attitude towards learning and be open to new and modern ideas.
