"We don't have that money just laying around our house..."
It was Valentine's. The most romantic day of the year.
Liz found herself in an unexpected conversation.
She was feeling tense. Her husband was about to buy something big and hadn't told her about it...yet!
"I'm going to go meet this guy this afternoon," her husband said.
Liz spun around from the kitchen looking into the living room where her husband sat on the aging recliner.
"What?! We don't have that kind of money laying around the house!"
Liz sighed, grabbed her bag, and slipped out the front door. She knew what she had to do.
Outside the house, Liz spotted the family's little red Mitsubishi. This was the family's second-hand car. And, it was on its last leg.
Liz slumped into the driver's seat. She felt a bump against the baby’s car seat behind her. Another reminder of how bad they needed a bigger vehicle.
"I thought we'd be driving something nicer by now," Liz thought, before putting her mind to rest. She had to get to her destination before it closed.
As Liz approached the large, bulky, front doors of her local bank, it struck her. The money she needed was going to have to come from her business bank account.
As Liz made her way in, the teller greeted her: “Withdrawal or deposit?”
"Withdrawal. Can I get $3,500 in cash, please?"
"Sure, what's the account?"
As Liz handed over her business debit card, a weird feeling crept in around her stomach. This was going to be the largest withdrawal she'd ever made.
"One moment please."
The clock in the bank's lobby ticked. Soon, the teller returned, handing Liz a thick, brown envelope, fat with cash.
Liz took it in her hand, her eyes widening as she felt the weight.
Was this happening? Had she just withdrawn $3,500 from her business bank account...at the drop of the hat?
Driving home, Liz's thoughts drifted. She thought about how this moment would change her relationship with her husband. Forever.
Back at the house, he was waiting, eager for her return.
Liz handed him the stuffed envelope, filled with 35 crisp one-hundred dollar bills.
"Here, go buy your truck."
Her husband lit up. "Okay!", he yelled, bounding out the front door.
Watching him go, Liz paused for a moment.
Had the money from her "little side business" just made her husband's dream of owning a truck come true?!
A feeling of pride swelled up inside of Liz. Then, a soft smile as a feeling of significance settled over her.
Liz took a moment to appreciate her "little victory". Then, she began to close out her day as a virtual bookkeeping business owner.
Twelve months ago, Liz NEVER imagined that a bookkeeping business would allow her family to do so much more.
Yet here Liz and her husband were, well on their way to living the lifestyle they'd dreamed of.
The Facebook post that Liz shared with my community after she purchased her husband a truck (pictured, with her daughter)
Liz had earned the freedom to work from home, finally able to decide when, where and how much she works.
This gives Liz more than enough time to spend raising her two, beautiful young children.
And ever since Liz started her business, the family finances have never been better.
This is what I call this the 3F Lifestyle. A way of living that gives you an plenty of Freedom, Family, and Finances.
Of course, Liz isn't a millionaire. Nor does she want to be.
But Liz and her family DO have some extra spending money. Money that SHE earned. Money they can ALL enjoy.
Let's back up a little...how did Liz get to this point?
Do You Want To Contribute To Your Family's Income In A Meaningful Way?
Liz and her husband found themselves where so many other couples find themselves. Young and in love, with a beautiful daughter in their life and a second child on the way.
Everything was going according to plan...except they were feeling a little stretched.
Liz's husband earned a decent living, working as a pastor. This freed Liz to step into the role of stay-at-home mom. She was able to raise their kids, and be there for them, something she and her husband both wanted.
But, as happy as they were, Liz realized that they weren't getting ahead. And she wanted to find a way to help the whole family do MORE.
She knew that with a little financial "wiggle room", things would be right on track.
If they could cover the cost of their weekly groceries, then they could afford to put a downpayment on a house and move out of the "fixer upper" they were living in.
And, who knows, maybe even take a vacation!
Maybe you're a bit like Liz?
Maybe you have dreams of your family getting ahead, instead of just getting by.
Maybe you want the freedom to make your own choices. Choosing how you work and spend your time, rather than being at the mercy of a greedy corporation and a cranky boss.
Maybe you want to be the kind of parent who provides for their family. All while still being able to devote time and energy to the most important job you have:
Raising your kids while they're still young.
If that's you, chances are you've been thinking about the 3F Lifestyle for a while (even if you didn't have a name for it!)
And, like Liz, you've been left wondering...
"What options do I REALLY have?"
When Liz first realized she wanted to earn a little more money, she started looking at her options. After surveying the field, she didn't really like what she saw...
- Getting a J-O-B: this is often seen as the safest and most reliable way to earn money, but does it come with a hidden cost?
- Selling stuff for other people. Multi-level marketing (MLM.) Real Estate. Both are great ways to earn money...or so we're told.
- Joining the new "Gig Economy". Services like Uber, Fiverr, and UpWork now make it easier than ever to earn money outside of an office. But what's the catch?
Right off the bat, Liz realized that she didn't want to get a J-O-B.
"Working for the man" would mean giving up her freedom and flexibility. And, she needed this to be the amazing stay-at-home mom she'd become.
She didn't want anyone telling her where, when, and how to work. Or, when she could leave the office!
That's when Liz started looking at "selling stuff", like MLM. But her husband put a quick end to that, realizing how suspicious most of those "opportunities" are. And it's no wonder!
According to a report published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), 99.6% of people who get involved in MLM lose money. Their hard-earned money fills the pockets of everyone at the top of the pyramid.
Liz knew she wanted a legitimate way to earn money. She wanted to do work that she enjoyed. She wanted something that served others and made her feel significant.
That meant her only real option was joining the "Gig Economy."
Liz thought about offering her services as a babysitter. But then she realized that she had enough kids running around the house. Maybe working as a translator and a transcriptionist would work?
She liked the idea, but she realized that getting enough, consistent work would be a problem.
The Consumer Awareness Institute report published by the FTC, which found that 99.6% of people who get involved in MLM lose money.
What Liz REALLY wanted was a way to earn money in a legitimate way. A way she enjoyed what she did and, most important, where she got paid every month like clockwork.
This is what I like to call a "Predictable Gig", and it's what allowed Liz to turn the fortunes of her family around.
The Power Of Owning A Predictable Gig
Look, when YOU have your own Predictable Gig, YOU are your own boss.
You call the shots and have complete control over when and where you work. You're not at the beck and call of an online platform or giant corporation. These only want to use you to fill their own pockets. And drip feed you work on their terms.
You get paid every month, like clockwork because you provide an ongoing service.
You work "virtually", meaning you can work from home...or take your work wherever you go!
You set your own work hours. You can work whenever it suits you, rather than working on someone else's schedule
You develop deep relationships with your clients as a valued member of their team.
Some of the most popular "predictable gigs" are: virtual assistant, writer, or transcriptionist.
And then there's my favorite, bookkeeping professional.
So, why aren't more people talking about bookkeeping and the "Predictable Gig Economy"?
Well, truth be told, I discovered all of this by accident...
How a Former Air Traffic Controller, Turned Certified Public Accountant, Helped 4,096 Bookkeepers Start Their Own Virtual Bookkeeping Businesses
Hi, my name is Ben Robinson. I'm the founder of Bookkeeper Business Launch. I'm a published author and Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
I’m also a proud veteran of the U.S. Air Force Air, where I served as an Air Traffic Controller. And I'm a Dad to 3 great children.
To date, I’ve helped 4,096 women and men to start their very own virtual bookkeeping business.
I started educating bookkeepers over 14 years ago. This was when I had a constant need for good bookkeepers in my own bookkeeping business.
You see, it was a constant struggle to find QUALIFIED bookkeeping professionals. Ones that were good enough for the job.
Whenever I did manage to find a qualified candidate, I would offer them a full-time job. Pretty good money too: $25+ an hour...Only to be denied (more times than I'd care to admit!)
You might find the idea of someone turning their nose up at $25/hr a little crazy to hear. But you have to realize that these "good" bookkeepers had private clients paying them over $60/hr!
For any bookkeeper that did agree to work with me, I often had to show them everything all over again, from scratch. Most of the time, it didn't work out well.
I realized my only option was to educate people from the ground up to be great bookkeepers.
So, I started by asking the question...
"What Makes A Great Bookkeeper?"
I spent a lot of time thinking about all the great bookkeepers I'd worked with over the years. I started to list out the things they had in common.
That's when I realized there was a specific set of traits and abilities they all shared:
They were all Determined, Resilient, and Personable. And on top of that, they all had an Eagle Eye attention to detail, while being Resourceful and a Self-Motivator.
To my surprise, what they DIDN'T need to have was:
- Prior experience as a bookkeeping professional
- Any special certifications or qualifications
With this discovery in mind, I set out to find people who fit this description. I also designed the first version of my bookkeeping skills system.
My goal was to find a woman or a man who had the right character traits and abilities. But, they needed to have no bookkeeping experience. This way, I could test my theory about being able to train an absolute beginner into a high-quality bookkeeper.
After my first round of "raw cadets", I was SHOCKED!
They turned out to be EXACTLY what my business needed. Competent, thorough and reliable bookkeeping professionals.
So, I Started Educating Dozens Of Bookkeepers For My Business...And A Handful Of My Friends Too
After educating over 100 bookkeeping professionals at my firm, my system was able to produce quality bookkeepers.
This turned out to have some unexpected benefits when the job market crashed in 2008.
Friends of mine, Mary and Keith, got caught right in the middle of it.
Our sons played football together, so we spent a lot of time talking in the stands. One day, Keith came to practice and looked depressed.
Keith was an upbeat guy and I’d never seen him like this. Being a dude, I didn’t want to ask…but I did.
“Hey Keith…you ok?”
Keith told me that Mary, who had a great job, had been laid off. More than a decade of service to one company came to an abrupt end.
To make matters worse, Keith was in the construction industry, which was in the toilet at the time.
Keith said that things would soon become desperate because they depended on Mary's income.
I knew Mary was a smart and capable woman. She had all the character traits and abilities of a great bookkeeper.
And I knew that there was sky-high demand for bookkeepers. With over 28 MILLION small businesses in the US (according to the Small Business Administration), and over 23 million in the EU (according to the European Commission). With all of them LEGALLY required to keep bookkeeping records.
(And hardly any of them with good bookkeepers they could rely on!)
I told Keith that Mary would have no trouble getting work as a bookkeeper, even in the poor job market.
“Dude, Mary doesn't know anything about bookkeeping, you're crazy!”
“No, Keith. Look she doesn't need to know anything. All she has to do is learn some basic bookkeeping skills. She can get some hands-on experience in my office and I'll help her get a handful of clients.”
So, Keith told Mary and (quicker than she expected) she learned the skills she needed and got a handful of clients.
Within a few months, she was earning enough money to replace the income her family depended on.
That's When The Word Got Out
That I Could Help...
Before I knew it, word got out about how I'd helped Mary.
Next thing I knew, I had a bunch of other people approaching me.
“Hey Ben, Mary told me you were able to help her and her family...I'd love to earn some money from home too.”
Some of these families only wanted a few hundred extra bucks a month. Others wanted to earn $2,000-$3,000 a month.
None of them wanted to take over the world. All they wanted was a little "breathing room" in their family's finances. Some financial margin.
So, I offered to help -- the same way I helped Mary -- and soon enough they were earning a good living on the side.
It made me proud that my system was able to help them and their families to create a predictable source of income. And, do it in a way where they had control over when, where and how much they worked.
And that's when I realized that there were so many OTHER families I could help.
If ONLY I could show them the potential impact that starting a virtual bookkeeping business could have on their lives.
So, at the end of 2014, I decided to sell my bookkeeping business. I wanted to focus solely on helping women and men start their own bookkeeping businesses.
Since then, I've helped 4,096 women and men do exactly that.
It's been a wild ride, and there's but there is one thing I've noticed, which I MUST tell you about today...
THE HARD TRUTH:
Bookkeeping As We Know It Is DYING
See, when I started in this business, it was easy enough to get bookkeeping clients. The "competition" was low. And the demand was high. Today, that's still the case!
But these conditions are often "too good to be true"... and it's resulted in big greedy companies making a huge effort to scoop up all the business they can.
Just like Uber disrupted the taxi industry, automation and AI is coming to take the traditional bookkeeper's lunch money.
So, even though bookkeeping is STILL one of the BEST options for starting a side business...it comes with ONE warning.
You CANNOT start a traditional bookkeeping business in this modern age and expect to survive. You must go BEYOND the traditional bookkeeping skills.
That's Why You Need To
Become a 21st Century Bookkeeper
Let me be clear: the arrival of automation and AI in the bookkeeping industry isn't ALL bad news.
In fact, to me it's GREAT news. For the right bookkeepers, who have the right skills, the right systems and the right clients, automation will become an ally.
Listen, you already know that bookkeeping is all about developing DEEP RELATIONSHIPS with your clients. That means that now is the best time in history to start a bookkeeping business.
But, to succeed, you have to become what I call a 21st Century Bookkeeper.
Someone who has the right Skills, Systems, and Clients to thrive in this modern age.
Let's take a look at what those are right now...
21st Century Skills
To understand the type of work that bookkeepers do, imagine a five-leveled hierarchy.
The first two levels of this hierarchy are Data Entry and Report Preparation. These two levels are the ONLY work that a traditional bookkeeper has done in the past.
Unfortunately, for the bookkeeper of old, this is work that automation can do BETTER. It's quicker, more accurate and more efficient than us humans.
So, if you only focus on developing the skills that will allow you to complete these two levels, you won't have much of a future.
But there are services above Data Entry and Statement Preparation that a robot can't do. And these are the types of skills you need to develop as a 21st Century Bookkeeper.
These skills are: Interpretation, Advising and to become your client's Trusted Advisor. These are all valuable skills that can ONLY an individual who has built a relationship with the business owner can complete.
21st Century Systems
A big part of being a 21st Century Bookkeeper is the ability to work from anywhere, at a time of your choosing.
Owning a bookkeeping business used to mean that you had a series of part-time jobs. You still had to show up to your client’s office to access their records. Their accounting software was on their company's desktop computer.
Some of the systems and tools used by 21st Century Bookkeepers
But when you have the right cloud-based bookkeeping software, there's no need to show up at your client’s office. You can work 100% remote.
Now, of course, this means that you DO need to be somewhat tech savvy to make this work for you.
You don't need to be a computing genius, but you do need to be able to use a computer proficiently.
And once you've mastered the right systems, you'll be riding the wave of automation and AI yourself. You'll let the robots do the boring, repetitive, data-entry work that used to define the profession.
21st Century Clients
Remember, when you focus on delivering 21st Century Bookkeeping Skills, you move away from "data entry clerk" and "record manager". And instead, you become a "financial coach and consultant."
For the RIGHT clients, this will make you an invaluable asset.
These are modern business owners who are managing their own growing company in this digital world. These are the forward-thinking business owners are more than happy to have you serve as a remote, 21st Century Bookkeeper for them.
In the past, many people were reluctant to allow you to work remotely. It was a novelty that they didn't understand.
But these days most business owners don’t care where their bookkeeper is. They just want their bookkeeping done right!
Sure, some people still won't be comfortable with you working as a remote worker. But when you learn the right client attraction methods, that won't be an obstacle. That's because you'll have the ability to attract the kind of clients that ARE right for you.
So there you have it.
21st Century Skills, Systems, and Clients. Exactly what the modern bookkeeper needs to thrive in this modern age of business.
Now, I could see how all these pieces were fitting together.
I knew that I could build a program that showed people how to start a virtual bookkeeping business from scratch.
I also knew that such a program would give so many women and men the ability to live the life they always dreamed of.
And that's exactly what I did.
So, let me ask you...
...What if you could learn the right skills, have the right systems, and learn how to get the right clients... all in a way that means you protect yourself from becoming obsolete?
Well, that's exactly what is inside of Bookkeeper Business Launch.

“The Best Investment I’ve Ever Made… A Life-changing Decision”
“Ben Robinson's (Bookkeeper Business Launch) is probably the best investment I've made in taking me closer to achieving my career goals. The course is worth every penny. I'm amazed at how much information and education I'm receiving in both bookkeeping and marketing. I'm only at the halfway mark and I already feel more equipped career-wise than from any of the university courses I've taken (which, of course, cost much, much more). Thank you, Ben.”
Callie Somers Sitek
“The Resources And Support Available To Me As A Student Are Priceless”
“As someone who was a bit nervous to purchase the course, I am so happy that I did. The resources and support available to me as a student are priceless. The course itself covers everything you need to know on both the knowledge side and business/marketing side. Ben covers things that I wouldn't even think of if I were to start a business from scratch. I really feel like I have the tools I need to start a successful bookkeeping business from my home which will give me more time with my son. If you're on the fence like I was, I promise you this course is worth every penny.”
“I Have 30 Years Of Bookkeeping Experience But This Has Given Me More Tools And Help That I Never Received In The Classroom”
“I was very skeptical when I signed up for this course. Hoping that I didn't "waste my money". However, this was the best decision I could of ever made. Ben has not only created an invaluable course, but has been there for us through the entire journey. Love being able to ask questions on Facebook and share whatever I am needing or facing and having others "be there" for me as well. The Q&A sessions were also helpful as it also gave a platform for additional learning and sharing. I have 30 years of bookkeeping experience but this has given me more tools and help that I never received in the classroom. I have my first client and working on more in the future. Thanks Ben for creating (Bookkeeper Business Launch).”

According to the US Small Business Administration, the average business start-up costs $30,000.
When you join Bookkeeper Business Launch, you won't need anything close to that. BBL is the only program that shows you how to bootstrap a virtual bookkeeping business for less than $1,000.
How do we do this?
Well, when it comes to starting a business you must:
- Minimizing your start-up costs
- Start earning and get profitable as soon as possible
Bookkeeper Business Launch has been designed with these two "business truths" in mind.
You'll discover how to start earning as quickly as possible, while keeping all of your costs to a bare minimum.
This all starts with our "apprenticeship" approach to learning, where you'll acquire the skills you need to take on a client in a matter of months! As opposed to a traditional bookkeeping education, which can take two years. And that doesn't include getting any experience, or learning about how to start and run a business.
"This course is possibly the single best thing to happen to me in a professional way."
This course is possibly the single best thing to happen to me in a professional way. I formed my LLC in November 2017 and joined my local Chamber of Commerce in February 2018. In six short weeks I went from hanging a virtual shingle and having zero prospects to now having two official clients and three that are all but signed. I would have never thought I could run my own business but BBL and the guidance it provides has not only made it possible, but reduced the stress and fear with it.
You'll Also Receive a
Bookkeeper Business Launch
"Certificate of Completion"
Once you complete the program, you'll also receive an electronic badge that will be verifiable through our online platform. You'll be able to put this badge on your LinkedIn, Facebook, your website...anywhere you choose!
This will allow you to show your prospects and clients the credentials that you've acquired from going through our program.
And Get Help EVERY Step Of The Way
Hit a Roadblock or Challenge Along The Way?
The Student Success Team
Is Here To Help
When you join Bookkeeper Business Launch, you'll get immediate and direct access to the Student Success Team (SST).
The Student Success Team is there to help and assist you however they can in achieving your goal of becoming a bookkeeping professional.
You'll get direct access to the team through:
- Weekly Live Q&As - Come on once a week and get the help you need to work through any specific questions, challenges, opportunities you have.
- Unlimited Email Support - Perfect for any questions that come up that you need a more detailed or immediate answer to. While our response times can vary, our typical response time is 72 minutes during business hours, and we average a happiness rating of 97% (according to our customer service software reports)!
Some of the SST are past students who have become successful bookkeepers. Others are seasoned bookkeeping professionals who bring their years of experience to every interaction.
They've been in your shoes. They all started with zero clients. And they know what it takes to build a bookkeeping business from the ground up.
But it's not only about the support you're going to get from me and my team.
Something my students tell me, which I've very proud of, is that the greatest support group they have access to is each other.
And they all point to ONE PLACE as the "go-to location" to get the help and support they need...

Special Bonus #1
Bookkeeping Biz "Hacks & Facts"
One of the best things you can do is study those who have gone before you.
This is especially powerful when those people have recently gotten to where you want to go.
Those are the people that have JUST dealt with the challenges you're about to face.
The answers to your struggles are fresh in their minds. That's why this bonus will be so valuable to you.
It's called "Bookkeeping Business Hacks and Facts," and it's a special set of recordings from a recent round-table discussion I organized.
I hand-selected some of the most successful Bookkeeper Business Launch students and invited them to my house in Atlanta, Georgia.
We sat down for a frank discussion about what starting their businesses was like for them. They shared all of the shortcuts they’d discovered (and the pitfalls, too) on their journey to bookkeeping business success.
We covered some very insightful topics, including:
- How to Know When You're "Ready" to Get Your First Client
- How to Deal with Feeling Overwhelmed When Starting a New Business
- Tips on Speed of Implementation - How to Get Your Business Earning Money, FAST
- How to Work Around Your Time Commitments and Start Your Business When You Have a Busy Life
- "Busy vs Breakthrough" Work - Their Experiences with What REALLY Moved the Needle Inside Their Businesses!
This is a really special set of round-table discussions, and I think this will go a long way in helping you achieve your goals!
Special Bonus #2
As a 21st Century Bookkeeping Professional, you can do a lot of good for your clients. You help them in ways they could never imagine.
And, one of the ways you help your clients is by adding additional services such as:
- Accounts Payable
- Accounts Receivable
These help your clients to maximize their profits. And, these allow YOU to increase your profits.
Offering these additional services truly sets you apart from the competition. They help you to demonstrate the tremendous value that you provide to your clients.
Does This Sound Too Good To Be True?
Now, reading through this, you might start to wonder if this sounds too good to be true.
And I get it!
There are a lot of people out there that make big claims out making money online.
You're probably concerned about falling for one of those "get rich quick schemes" out there. The ones that promise BIG, but never result in anything.
These scams are successful because they prey upon the desire for quick results. They promise you the ability to start earning tens (even hundreds) of dollars from home, all with the flick of a switch!
So, let me be very clear about this:
Starting a virtual bookkeeping business is DEFINITELY NOT a get rich quick scheme.
It takes hard work and dedication to reach success.
Please, re-read that statement!
And you WILL NOT become a millionaire!
But, when you do things the RIGHT way, you CAN start earning money far quicker than you might expect.
You won't earn THOUSANDS of dollars right off the bat. But within 3 months you certainly have the potential to start earning hundreds of dollars (every month)...and from there it can grow!
Just like these students of mine...

“To all of you stay-at-home moms with littles, I just want you to know it can be done!”
Success story: slightly different version than most :) To all of you stay-at-home moms with littles, I just want you to know it can be done! Here's my timeline: Started BBL (was B3 then!) in January 2016 - First Client: February 2017-Second Client: August 2017-Third Client: September 2017
“Signed A New Client Today! It's TWO entities! Both signed at $500+ a month!”
Signed a new client today!! I met with my new client and his mom who is currently doing his bookkeeping... she has 30 years of bookkeeping experience and she was GRILLING me! I feel like a stumbled a little bit :( She was talking about all of these reports that she pulls for her son on a daily basis. I'm like ahhhkk!! We are going to transition the books over to me next Tuesday. I'm nervous... This is a big client!! And it's not just ONE entity he hired me to do bookkeeping for, it's TWO entities! Both signed at $500+ a month!
“This Course Is Not Just About Bookkeeping; It's A Step by Step Guide To Starting Up A Business. “
“A lot of people may be put off by the price. I almost was, but when I started doing research about the costs of starting a business, what Ben was asking seemed more than reasonable. This course is not just about bookkeeping; it's a step by step guide to starting up a business. He walks you through every little bit of the process, equips you with fabulous marketing tools, AND trains you how to be a bookkeeper. That alone would be worth the cost.”
Katherine Denton Pomerantz
But You Have To Take Action NOW
Now, I need to be upfront with you.
The lifestyle you're looking to achieve won't happen by itself, and it certainly won't happen unless you take action.
And that action starts by you making a simple decision, for you and your family.
Are you going to become a 21st Century Bookkeeping Professional and join the Predictable Gig Economy? Will you make the decision to move towards a life of Freedom, Family and Finances.
Or are you going to find another way to contribute to the family's income?
Now, if you're still here with me, I think you know that bookkeeping is the best way forward for you.
So, consider this:
"What is it costing you to NOT take action? What is the price I'm paying for staying where I am right now?"
Sometimes we're not conscious of the hefty price we pay for our inaction. A price that comes from denying ourselves what we know is best for ourself and our family.
Now, according to United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average bookkeeper earns $41,730 per year.
That's over $100 / day.
That means 10 days of inaction is costing your "future self" $1,000.
Wait a month, and you're robbing your future self of $3,000.
Wait six months and you've lost over $20,000.
What would it mean for you and your family to have that money in your bank account a year from now?
Personal debt cleared? The mortgage repaid?
A new car? A new kitchen? A new house?
A college education funded?
How Many Years Have You Been Waiting For This?
Beyond the financial cost, think of the emotional cost that you and your family must pay.
What would it mean for you and your family to be truly FREE? To have the FLEXIBILITY to make your own decisions about what is important to YOU?
What is the emotional cost, to both you and your children, when you're forced to put them aside because you're always working?
When a big, greedy corporation or an incompetent boss pressures you to commit more time and energy than you have available, who pays the price?
Often, it's our family members that have to pay the price, when we come home, worn out and mentally exhausted. Disengaged and cranky.
And, on a personal level, how many of your own interests have you put on the back-burner over the years, saying "someday..." ?
When will that day come? For most of us, the answer is never, unless we take action.
Just Imagine For A Moment...
Imagine a weekday, 12 months from now, after you've set up your virtual bookkeeping business...
...You wake up in the morning and get the family ready for the day. You gotta take care of kids perhaps. But, you have your leisurely morning routine sorted, without the stress of getting everyone out the door in a hurry because you don't have anywhere to be.
There’s no boss waiting on you with a stopwatch to make sure you were there at 8AM on the nose.
After everyone's out the door and on the bus, you begin your day. Maybe you’re an early morning person and want to do your work right away. So, you get after it.
Or, perhaps you’d rather have that second cup of coffee alone on the back porch. It’s up to you!
Eventually, your work begins. You smile as you look at the work day you planned out the evening before. You're excited to see that your day is filled with interacting with your clients.
You have a call to go over one client's monthly financial statements, something you enjoy because you've grown to love the look on their face when they finally "get it". The compliments they give you for being able to explain their finances on their level never get old. And you feel pride that the work you do is making a big impact in their life.
Oh, snap...it’s 10:45 and you remembered that you've got that lunch with a referral partner at 12 noon.
Where did the time go?!
You get ready and drive to your favorite restaurant, where you arranged the meeting. On your way, you get a phone call from the referral partner. She’s going to be 15 minutes late.
No worries! In fact, this was exactly why you brought your laptop.
You arrive at the restaurant, get a table and do a bit of work, quickly answering some emails from your other clients.
At the same time, you log onto your bank and see that a handful of the monthly deposits you get from your client work have hit your account. $1,200, all deposited automatically on the 16th of the month, like clockwork.
Money that some of my students have earned with their bookkeeping businesses
You log out of your bank account, just in time for your referral partner to arrive.
You both enjoy a great lunch. She brings you up to speed about how she does payroll services, and how she's looking for someone reliable to refer her clients' bookkeeping to.
After lunch, you go by the grocery store to grab a few things you need. You see a friend outside in the parking lot, and stop to chat for a moment. You're not in any rush and you're due for a quick catch up.
Then, it’s home in time to get the kids off the school bus. While you wait outside for the bus, you’re on your laptop doing some client work. Reconciling some accounts...preparing some financial statements. Making sure the numbers are right.
The kids get home, and you greet them with a big smile and a tender hug. After they get their snack, they head outside to play. You take the opportunity to take this couple of hours to really roll up your sleeves and get some work done. Such is your new life as a virtual bookkeeping business owner.
The kids get back and it's time for dinner. With the sun shining, you decide that the family is going to eat out on the new deck that you just had installed. And even better, it's time to fire up the new BBQ that you got for the household to enjoy!
With dinner served and the kids off the bed, you and your partner have some time alone on your new porch.
You lounge around for a while, and talk about each other's day. The conversation then moves to the vacation you're planning for the end of the summer. RVing around the country? Or a week at the beach?
Why not both!?
This is what's possible once you start a virtual bookkeeping business and start living the 3F lifestyle.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Some days, things don’t run this smooth.
A client calls in a panic because he needs something ASAP. The referral partner cancels on you last minute as you’re already at the restaurant...such is life!
However, you're able to roll with the punches because you have the freedom and flexibility to make your own choices of how you work.
"PERFECT for after I have my little one in June"
I'm excited to report that everything worked out and I got the part-time bookkeeping job with that CPA firm! I'll be managing 15-20 clients AND they're going to teach me how to do payroll and tax filings, so it'll be a wonderful learning opportunity, too. It's 30 hours/week during tax season and then 18 hours/week for the rest of the year, which is PERFECT for after I have my little one in June and as I continue to build my own client list. Thanks to everyone who offered advice for my interview yesterday!

I'm still in a state of shock. I started this training in January 2017 and officially launched in June 2017 by partnering with a cpa and have acquired a few clients on my own and as of November 17th I quite my job as a school bus driver (my original exit plan was aimed for the end of the school year) to do my business full time (I've already doubled my income).

93% Of Your Time Is Already Up
Listen, if your family needs this...I can honestly say that bookkeeping is the best way forward for you.
And I want to leave you with this...
I recently read an article that talked about the amount of time we have with our loved ones.
The author estimated how much time he had spent with his loved ones throughout his lifetime.
The results and numbers in the article were quite shocking. Especially when it came to the amount of time I have left to spend with my kids.
It explained that during the first 18 years of our children's lives, we see them nearly every day.
But as soon as they reach the age of 18 and move off to college, we only get to see them 5 times a year, for maybe a day or two at a time. That's only 10 days a year!
That means when your kids graduate from high school, you've already used up 93% of your in-person time with them.
When I read this statistic, it hit me right in the gut, as my youngest is going to be graduating from high school in the near future.
This is when I realized that the time we have with our kids is so precious. Our kids are only young once.
Life Is So Short.
Make Time To Enjoy It.
Listen: I don't want to belabor the point, but let me conclude with this:
As a parent, you know what your priorities are. And we all know that priorities matter.
You made the decision that you wanted to become a fantastic parent.
You know that you want to raise your kids to become the smart, successful, and beautiful individuals you know they can become, with the right care and attention.
But for that to happen, you have to be present and available to them.
You owe it to them to be the BEST parent that you know you can be.
And the best way to make that happen is to BE THERE for them, to be a major part of their lives.
Helping them to get ready in the morning (even if they can't help but drag their feet!)
Greeting them as they get off the bus, or when they come in the front door, backpack in tow.
Taking them to music lessons, and driving them to baseball practice. Asking them how their day went and listening to what they have to say!
Helping them with their homework (even math), and going to their field trips.
Exploring the world with them and showing them new and exciting places. And teaching them the values that you hold so dear.
And being able to do ALL of this without having to BEG for time off to do it, or feeling GUILTY when you have to take them to the doctor's office.
All of this IS possible for you... IF you take action today.
Become the parent you know you can be.
Become a bookkeeper.
I know you'll make the right decision...
