I could go on and on about all the great information written in this book including Sylvia's downloadable forms which are very helpful. She also gives some good advice, and a realistic way to quit your day job, if you can get your boss to agree to a few things, as well as a business plan and where to spend your money marketing your business.
This book is definitely something to keep at your side while you plan and set up your home business in bookkeeping. Im sure I wont use all the suggestions but Im sure to use quite a bit of the information provided. I would highly recommend this book to anybody who asked about it and I am real finicky about informational books. I want real information that I can put to use not just a book on what someone else has done.Read more ›
I can't believe it took me this long to figure out my biggest strength in the marketplace. That said, my biggest problem in growing my business has been the lack of access to information, all different kinds really. Sylvia Jaumann has the most competent information I have seen about starting a bookkeeping business everywhere I have looked. If there's one thing I have found out, it's that most bookkeepers don't want to share how they do what they do.
Before now, I have been wanting to bang my head against the wall from frustration. Two days ago started out as a nightmare, and began to look like it would end that way too. About 10 phone tags back and forth and a dozen text messages, plus getting lost multiple times out here in the "country" back roads of Texas. Over 150 miles later & walking through my front door last night after 1:00 am, I can PROUDLY share with you that I've picked up my FIRST real client!!!!! From pitch to close - and this one isn't one of my buddies, like all my other clients.
I actually even e-mailed Sylvia Juamann, and she replied to me! I thought that was pretty cool. If you want to start a bookkeeping business and are having difficulty finding answers to questions you just don't know the answer to, purchase Sylvia Juamann's book, "Secrets to Starting & Running Your Own Bookkeeping Business." Plus go to her websites: [...] or [...] or[...]
PLEASE REMEMBER to support your local small businesses! That means on EVERY purchase!!
It gave a lot of helpful detailed information on what to do and even putting different colored folder for different jobs for the client. I thought that was helpful as well as doing other jobs for your client besides bookkeeping. I have read that before and have taken that into consideration. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone that wants to start one. But since I have an Accounting Degree and know the ins and outs of the field, I have a little bit of an advancement than people that don't. So, please educate yourself before jumping right into it.
I bought Quickbooks Pro to help me understand what the program was and to see how it works. It works very easy but just know whats behind it. I think Quickbooks over Peachtree is better any day. I tried Peachtree years ago and I did not like it. But I REALLY like Quickbooks, but it also depends on the industry. Quickbooks doesn't seem to handle inventory from what I'm told. But always do your research.
I recommend this book!
