A few months ago I was laid off from my work-from-home job. I quickly discovered that finding another telecommuting job was nearly impossible. I am a single mom of three boys, one of whom has special needs, so I really needed to find something that would afford me a lot of flexibility with a full-time income. Please share your success due to the course.
How soon were you able to find your first client and start working towards your income goals? I have zero bookkeeping experience and was worried about my ability to get clients. The classes focus just as much on the business side of things as the bookkeeping knowledge.
From day one I was learning both bookkeeping skills and how those skills translate into my new business. Ben is a great teacher and he knows how to break down the content so that anyone can learn it.
I actually got my first client before the class even ended. I actually wasn't even trying. Probably about half the people I told said that they needed or they knew someone who needed a bookkeeper, so I was already handing out my business cards. Then one day I got a call!

I started the course during summer break with all three of my boys at home! I contemplated waiting until school started back, but my bills wouldn't wait, so I dove in. I'm so glad I did. That will never come. The course can be completed on your schedule so just dive in.
Literally, every single business in the world needs a bookkeeper. It might as well be me or you! Here's what I did—and you can too: Keep your current full-time job until you are making at least the same from your part-time business. Create a business name for your business, file your DBA, and get a business license. Create a tri-fold brochure, business cards and postcards. Send your brochure to all the DBA filings printed in your local paper. Create and publish a Web site. When employers advertise for a part-time bookkeeper, send out a resume with a cover letter.
Every day, go door to door to businesses, handing out your brochure and business card. Best: Low cost industrial areas with small spaces. Disadvantages of a home business Clients told me they did not like their work done near kids or pets, and prospective clients said they were turned off by the home office.
Meeting strangers in your home may infringe on your privacy and may even be dangerous. I felt like I had to answer the business line after business hours and I got complaints if I didn't. IRS or state tax agents can show up unannounced at inconvenient times. Clients showed up at all hours to drop off, pick up, etc.
