DIY Books: A mini-course for micro-business owners who do their own bookkeeping.


Why should I take this mini-course?

Not everyone wants to hire a bookkeeper, and if you're willing to do the books yourself, it's quite doable. But you definitely want to make sure that you know what you're doing. 

In this fun and lively mini-course, we will teach you everything you need to know to do your own bookkeeping. So your CPA won't have to avoid eye contact with you at the grocery store next time. 
The best candidates for DIY Books are a combination of the following:
  • Sole Proprietor
  • Single Member LLC
  • Few to no employees
  • You like to know your numbers
  • You enjoy the work (even if it's a weird + twisted pleasure)
  • You are organized
