Hi! I have a couple questions about your day-to-day as a bookkeeper. Do you have an email address I can connect with you at?
excellent Video thanks
When you say the Quickbooks Online Accounting program is free, are you referring to the 30-day free trial?
Hi Christopher — No, I’m referring specifically to the platform for accountants to manage their firm serving multiple businesses that use QB Online, not the core QBO program itself for small businesses. You can find the QBO Accountant program here: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/accountants/
Thank you, I am just diving into getting my business started. Great Information.
I had my own import export company in India. So I am learning QuickBooks online at present with a view in my mind to serve clients related to import export. Please comment.
Hi AJ, awesome video. I’m not a CPA like yourself, however I have been working in Accounting for years.
My question is this… Can I as a Non-CPA offer Accounting services to small businesses? Specifically local restaurants.
I want to offer more than just simple bookkeeping, such as tax preparation, budgeting and forecasting.
Yes I believe you can…
Please educate us on quickbooks to set up basic if you are ok
Hi AJ. I’m researching what bookkeeping certification/training I’ll go into (I’m just wanting this job until I graduate my compsci program and I’d like to be able to be a part time bookkeeper while I go to school full time).
Your videos are super helpful so far! Thanks a bunch!
HOW MUCH TIME REQUIRE TO EARN $10000 IF I HAVE LEARNT BOOKEEPING +QUICKBOOK SOFTWARE AND work 14 hours a day??? is it possible in 4 months
Thank you for sharing!
Great video. I have been in retail for 30+ years and ready to start something new that doesn’t require me to work more than 3-4 days a week. Is this something that could fit within the bookkeeper schedule. Also, I am into real estate and is there a niche for beekeeping in the real estate sphere? Appreciate any feedback.
Great video!! This was everything I needed to hear right now.
I enjoyed your video and I would like to talk with you sometime.
Thank you so much for sharing your insight!!
Good video, thank you!
Thanks! I really needed some clarity on opening my bookkeeping business! I have about 23 years of accounting in alternative investments and a family member ask me to keep his books for his real estate. I will focus my business on that angle. Is there any other advice that you can share about going into this niche of accounting?
Quickbooks is a trusted industry product….why would people push back at it?
