Today, we're going to dive into what small online business owners struggle with and how BOB can help, so stay tuned to find out all the juicy details! 

But before we dive right in, welcome to the Profits + Prosecco Podcast! I’m your host, Katie Ferro, CPA, reformed rule follower, creator of Booked Out Bookkeeper, mom to 3 little ones, and Kajabi enthusiast.

This podcast is for entrepreneurs who desire to change their life through their profitable business, and for bookkeepers and accountants who want to escape the 9-5 and start a simple scalable bookkeeping business like I did. 

Bookkeeping increases profits and profits change lives. So pop some bubbles and let me show you how!

Why now is the PERFECT time for bookkeepers to serve small online businesses.

Does Coronavirus sound familiar to anyone? 

Given the impact and changes of this pandemic over the last year, it’s NO secret that businesses are shifting online NOW more than EVER before.

There is a massive shift happening online and it's pretty hard to ignore that fact. 

Yes, traditional stores may be suffering but this is not the case for every business. Online businesses that already existed prior to covid are crazy. 

FACT: Online is the future.

I've watched my clients go from nothing to everything with their online businesses in the midst of COVID-19. Keep in mind, most of my clients are in their 20’s or 30’s, so they're young business owners. They're good at making money... but they're not always the best at handling it. 

You know what that means? 

It means they need our help, want our help, and will pay for our help. 

People in online businesses don't want to handle their money, they want to enjoy their life and know that it's handled. 

Why I love working with online businesses.

They're easy to reach, they hang out together, and they will naturally refer you to more ideal clients. 

They’re also similar in structure so it's easy and gives you a repeatable process. 

When you develop a relationship with small online business owners, they'll continue working with you. 

Example: Brittney Lippert is a client of mine who has been in her business for four years. In the last two weeks of working with me, she says it's the most empowered she's ever felt and she can't wait to continue working with me.  

The point of this story is that she's not going anywhere. She can now look at her bank account with ease and know that her business is going to be successful. 

It's not just me who can make people feel this way. You can do it too! 

That’s where Booked Out Bookkeeper™ comes into play. It’s my high-level 4 month group coaching program that helps accountants quit their job and build a successful bookkeeper business. This program will help you embody a CEO mindset, build a business, and reach your dream clients. I’ll teach you how to sign a client that will stay with you for the entirety of their online business and how you can attract more. 

Joining Booked out Bookkeeper to serve more businesses.

While in BOB, I'll teach you ALL about the bookkeeping business as well as how to connect and reach out to your dream clients!

I will also teach you how to turn your skills into something marketable and into a real business, instead of just being a $15 per hour bookkeeper. I promise you'll go from applying to positions to attracting clients QUICKLY. 

Bookkeeping is supposed to be fun! There's value in it and people are always going to need it. It's honestly one of the most secure businesses around. 

When you have a program like this, it's going to show you how to do things in an organized way. It's designed for people who don't have a lot of time but still want to reach the right people. 

As a bookkeeper, you should have rules and systems in place because a business owner is never going to know how many transactions they have. Through the modules and group coaching, you'll have tons of support for this and you can go at your own pace.
