I teach small business owners how to keep their bookkeeping in good order with just 1 hour/week.
I also keep books for small service-based business that need 2-4 hours of weekly bookkeeping.
I help family-owned businesses trouble-shoot their accounting systems and guide them to set up practical and efficient back-office procedures so that managing cash flow, taxes, and financial decisions become a breeze.
I have worked with clients in a wide variety of service and product-based industries including personal coaches, restaurants, and subscription box services. I am with certified Quickbooks Pro Advisor and Xero Advisor Certified. I have also worked with several industry-specific accounting softwares such as Restaurant 365.
Your business ALWAYS needs a bookkeeper. It's OK if that bookkeeper is you, the owner.
I teach business owners how to keep their books in good shape until they have the resources to outsource the work to a professional bookkeeper.
Share with your personal network, starting with family and your IRL friends when you see or communicate with them next, that you're looking for clients. They know you and actively want you to succeed and will be excited to give a great personal referral to someone they know who needs your services.
Start small with what's available online.
Even with the most careful planning, your business model is guaranteed to morph substantially as you discover exactly where that perfect intersection between what you love to do, people you love to work with, and what you'll be well-compensated for exists.
Opt for "good enough" tools that don't require a big up-front cash layout so that you can be agile if you decide to pursue a different type of client or pivot the business' focus.
I had a great 1.5 hour call with Nina to learn more about professional bookkeeping. Nina was friendly, helpful and explained core bookkeeping concepts really well. I would gladly schedule a follow up call with Nina and recommend her to anyone looking out for bookkeeping services.
Nina is amazing! So happy I made the call - she clarified tons of questions I had about Quickbooks and bookkeeping, and was super patient and understanding all along the way.
