If you survived Grade 6 math, you may have an opportunity to build and run a side business providing accounting services – bookkeeping services for small businesses.
Many think accounting is one of the hardest things to learn but doing the type of work we do as accountants and service providers is not significantly more complex than Grade 6 math.
As Accountants and Service providers, we provide a significant amount of value to the public. For the most part, this value comes from knowledge gathered from many years of doing what we love. The foundation for this knowledge was several years of study which culminated in a professional designation that is globally respected.
While having an educational background in accounting and/or a professional designation is desired in this profession, it is not required to have a thriving accounting business and it is absolutely not required to provide value to your clients. What is required is the right knowledge and the right experience.
For many years, my business partner and I have been arming individuals just like you with this type of knowledge. The knowledge required to provide the kind of accounting services that are in high demand today. We’ve trained students, Canadian and Foreign-trained professionals, old and young on how to prepare and file personal and corporate tax returns, complete bookkeeping, prepare financial statements, and provide associated advisory services.
Early this year, we opened this up to the general public and we successfully ran our first training where we trained new students on how to prepare and file personal tax returns between January and March 2022. These students are currently refining their knowledge and putting it to work as they are actively building their businesses and earning income at the same time.
Now, we’re opening registration for Phase 2 of training – Bookkeeping services – starting in early June 2022!
Today, technology has made it easier to provide these types of services. However, there is a growing shortage of qualified professionals to serve the growing needs of clients in this business. And with the significant growth in the knowledge economy, there has never been a better opportunity to dive into this business.

You can start generating revenue as soon as a month following the completion of the program. In fact, it is possible to start generating revenue prior to completing the 8-weeks training program.
Where will my revenue come from if I have zero clients going into this program?
Good question. Your revenue will come from your sales and marketing effort which we will put in place starting as early as week 2 of the program. Also, note that we run an active and growing accounting and tax practice and we will also be a source of business for you. In fact, we may be one of your most reliable clients! So, with this program, you’re guaranteed to earn revenue even if your marketing effort is not yielding early results.
Can I learn enough in 8 weeks to be in a position to help others with no prior experience?
Research has shown over and over again that you only need to know 3% more than others in a particular subject area to be in a position to help them. Since our program is intentionally designed with both theoretical knowledge and practical experience, you will be ready with way more knowledge to help those seeking your newly acquired professional services in this area. You don’t need to know it all. You only need to know 3% more than your clients. And remember, you have the support of our team and the community you can tap into to close any knowledge gap as part of this program.
