How to set up, create and start your own bookkeeping business from scratch. And be successful.
This audiobook is by UK author Lisa Newton who started her own bookkeeping business for £150 in 2004. She used £100 from her overdraft and got £50 'investment' from her mum - and made it work. It is an action-packed, tip-filled, no-nonsense approach to how to start, what to do, things to look out for, pitfalls to avoid and its guidance will help you to avoid the expensive, painful time-consuming mistakes which most freelance independent bookkeepers make. There are plenty of horror stories to keep you on your toes and plenty of useful content to help you to make that transition from full time employee to full time business owner.
Amongst other things this audiobook covers:- getting started- products, price, place, promotion- dealing with clients, suppliers, subcontractors- practical exercises for you to try- and a whole lot more. This isn't theoretical or written by some lecturer. This is written by someone who has been there, done it and franchised the bookkeeping business. And won the Bookkeeping Franchisor of the Year (BKN award) in 2012 AND 2013.
What you'll soon realise (for those of you thinking of starting this kind of business), is that there are a lot of HATERS out there... and the minute you start to become successful - they'll want to find a way to tear you down. But it doesn't matter...it’s actually part of the fun and games which this audiobook also covers. Be flattered when people make an attempt to sabotage your efforts (be it a bad review or to try and get information out of your team) to 'find out how you're doing it'...it’s all happened to the author, and it is to be expected when you're causing a ripple, and doing something that works....

There are no reviews for this title yet.
I found this well thought out and it offers a really good grounding on the ups and downs of starting a bookkeeper business. It has given me ideas and highlighted pitfalls I havent thought of. The author is clearly knowledgeable about this industry. The only criticism is the audiobook had a few examples which are basically read out balance sheets which doesn't translate that well into an audiobook.
