Why does someone need a bookkeeping system like QuickBooks?

  • It’s the standard for most CPA firms 
  • The software can be installed on a PC, desktop, or laptop
  • It’s cost-effective at $399 – less than half of Online plans for one year
  • Only needs upgrade every 3 to 5 years
  • True double-entry accounting system
  • Offers powerful reporting options like Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet
  • 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
  • Accounting for multiple companies available

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 eCommerce business and does accounting for local small businesses.  With many years of experience in automotive (double-entry) accounting under my belt, QuickBooks was the logical choice when I started my eCommerce journey.

Having run an Amazon business for a few years, I’ve gained valuable experience and empathy for my fellow Amazon sellers.  I spend a lot of time these days helping others find their way as they try to navigate the eCommerce world.

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.
