About Our Guest: Ben Day

Ben Day founded Lionshare Bookkeeping in 2017 with a simple goal – to make enough money for a down payment on a house that would kickstart his real estate investing journey. Today, Ben and his team help over a hundred real estate teams get their finances straight every month. Ben has taken the lessons he’s learned along the way and packaged them together into his group coaching program – Built By Bookkeepers – which helps established bookkeeping professionals grow their own highly effective businesses by leveraging what Ben refers to as the Bookkeeping CEO Blueprint.

Ben has served as CFO of a nine-figure real estate conglomerate with teams dedicated to underwriting, acquisition, lending, construction, property & asset management, and disposition. In addition to being a bookkeeping professional and coach, Ben is a real estate investor, a musician, a self proclaimed “beer snob”, and generally tries to do too many things at the same time.
