Why does someone need a bookkeeping system like QuickBooks?

  • It’s the standard for most CPA firms 
  • Software can be installed on a PC, desktop or laptop
  • It’s cost effective at less than $200 
  • Only needs upgrade every 3 to 5 years
  • True double-entry accounting system

  • Archives vendor invoice copies, which makes it great for eliminating all those receipt piles 
  • Added options for credit card processing and payroll features, including Direct Deposit

There’s so much more to QuickBooks Pro Desktop than I can possibly list here. 

Having software to handle the job is one thing, knowing how to use it is another!  New users often express frustration when trying to learn how it all works together.  The accounting processes happen behind the scenes and it helps to know someone, who can walk you through the entire setup.

This Course Was Designed For Beginners With Little To No Experience

Included are video lessons, downloads and worksheets to help entrepreneurs use QuickBooks and take advantage of all the resources available to them.  There are even graded quizzes to evaluate your understanding.

The videos are short and to the point, while not missing a beat on the basics.  No matter your experience level, you’ll get what you need to build confidence in your accounting abilities.

With QuickBooks Pro Desktop, you’ll pay no monthly fees.

This course was extremely helpful to me. The videos were very user friendly and showed me ways to really improve the methods that will help me advance my business. The quizzes taught me better means to discuss my plans and goals. Thank you for making this a pleasure to learn more about QuickBooks. Highly recommended!!

My name is Vicki McCay.  I’m a wife and homeschooling mother, who has an Amazon FBA business and does accounting for other local small businesses.  With many years in automotive (double-entry) accounting under my belt, QuickBooks was a logical solution when we started a 401(c)3 mission organization almost twenty years ago.  Learning it was hard, but with perseverance, I succeeded in setting up the accounting system for the non-profit.

I left the automotive business to be a full-time mommy to our son.  Once he started school (public school at the time), I accidentally got a part-time job as a personal assistant and bookkeeper!  It’s a long story how that happened.  Just saying, volunteering for Meals on Wheels can be dangerous to your unemployment plans.  Anyway, with the part-time job, I was still able to be home with our son when he was out of school.

I started investigating options for what we’d do when my husband retired.  We’ll be debt free, except for living expenses – utilities and food.  We won’t need much, but we will need some.  So, one day I stumbled upon another business opportunity, Amazon FBA.  It intrigued me because I liked the fact that it was something I could do without being tied to the house or inventory.  We want to be able to travel on the spur of the moment, you know.  Homeschooling fits our lifestyle too.

Being an entrepreneur and teacher at heart, it is only natural to share what we learn with others.  Hope you enjoy the ride with us.
