Be Your Own CFO

I hope you are enjoying this long holiday weekend!  Today I want to share with y’all an online course that changed my life, and I’m not exaggerating!  I met Amy at The Blog Societies Conference over the summer while attending her workshop on small business accounting at the conference.

Be Your Own CFO Course

This year, with the blog becoming more of a viable business, I was struggling with keeping track of what was coming in, what was going out, what was tax deductible, and what didn’t need to be reported on my taxes.  Basically, I needed help getting my accounting in order.  As I’m sure any small business owner can relate, there’s a lot more to it than just sending standard tax documents to your accountant at the end of the year (like I’ve always done!).

After the conference I ended up taking Amy’s online course, Be Your Own CFO, and I can honestly tell you that all of those sleepless nights lost over freaking out about my accounting practices are long gone!  Her course whipped me in shape, and I no longer loose sleep over my small business accounting (especially in preparing for tax season!).

Online Accounting Course

The course is broken down into 5 easy to follow lessons, which you can take at your own pace.  Along with the course there are tons of printable checklists and forms plus you gain permanent access to a private Facebook group with others who have taken the course.  The Facebook group has been extremely helpful in that everyone asks important, relevant questions and there’s always a quick, knowledgeable response.

If you’re a small business owner or a fellow blogger, I HIGHLY recommend this course. You can check out the course here.

If you have any questions at all about my experience with the course, feel free to ask!  Also, Amy is super responsive so feel free to shoot her an email as well!
