Upon completion of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with your assigned Marketing Coach and during our Marketing Implementation Session This will be a one-on-one discussion to develop your business plan and a clear marketing strategy to get you the clients you need.



Module 1 of the Professional Bookkeeper™ program, Accounting Made Easy, teaches you the fundamentals of Bookkeeping in a practical, hands-on methodology. You will learn by doing, the best way for the skills that you gain to stick. If you have ever read a book on a subject and found that you couldn’t retain the knowledge when you needed it later, you already know the value of learning by doing, involving more of your brain in the learning process. As you complete the practice sets in the Professional Bookkeeping course, you become familiar with the processes involved in day-to-day PB Accounting and Bookkeeping tasks. They become second nature to you, enabling you to focus on higher level things.
Module 2 teaches you how to apply those principles to specific industries. You will learn to set up books from scratch, setting up all of the ledgers and journals needed to do full service Bookkeeping Accounting for your paying clients. Your clients will learn that you are the only financial analyst that they will ever need because you can do it all!
The purpose of the 3rd module is to help you set up a complete bookkeeping system, and manage clients from a variety of more sophisticated industries for your new accounting and bookkeeping business.
This 4th module is designed to assist you in successfully creating your own professional in-home, or office-based bookkeeping and accounting service. It gives you the turnkey process to start and build a successful accounting business so you can be in business for yourself but not by yourself.



This program is delivered through easy-to-follow instructional videos and workbooks (over 600 pages of instruction and reference materials). You’ll have the flexibility to complete the courses on your own time, in a way that fits your life. Even though you may be training from the comfort of home, you are far from on your own. You’ll have access to the support of knowledgeable accounting coaches and mentors who have their own successful accounting firms along with other experienced accounting professionals.
