It isn't easy. Juggling the responsibilities of being a parent and the need to earn a living has always proved a challenge. Daycare isn't the first choice most young parents want to make. But sometimes, you just have to . . . don't you?
Let me share some great news with you. You can stay home with your family and earn a wonderful income. I know it sounds hard to believe, but it can be a reality for you and your family.
Don't put your children in daycare until you have investigated all the options. And don't waste time doing something that won't let you create the freedom and the lifestyle that will let you spend your time doing the things that matters most. I can show you how.
Here's a realistic opportunity to enjoy a lifestyle that will allow you to work from home, earn a great income and have time for the things that are really important. Small business bookkeepers and accountants have worked from their home offices for years. Victoria Richardson is a perfect example.
When she began her practice, she leased a beautiful office. She thought it would give her added credibility. What she found out absolutely surprised her. Most of her interactions with clients took place in their offices, not hers. In fact, she was shocked to find the only people who found her at her beautiful office space were people who wanted to sell her something.
After her first year in business, she decided to spend the money she had wasted on a lease to build out a nice, comfortable home office. She works three days a week, makes a very comfortable income and spends the rest of the week with her children and family.
Victoria will share with you how she found time for what matters most. What's more, her experience is by no means unique. Thousands of people just like Victoria found how owning a home-based professional bookkeeping and tax accounting business perfectly fits their income needs and their lifestyle. To hear her story in her own words click HERE.
That's a good question. In fact, I'm not the only one who feels so strongly that it makes a great home-based business. It's no surprise to me that Paul and Sarah Edwards, authors of The Best Home Businesses for the 21st Century, consider it to be the "Best of the Best." That's high praise from someone outside the accounting industry looking purely at the business opportunity.
It might surprise you to know that over 550,000 new businesses start up every month in the United States. What a tremendous opportunity for someone willing to acquire the right education to provide services those businesses will require.
Accounting is mandated by law. Each month, every business is required to do accounting. That's how government determines taxes, licenses, and all the other fees and withholdings every business must pay. Most small business owners don't have backgrounds in accounting. They need the expertise only a skilled and qualified small business bookkeeper can provide.
This type of expertise doesn't require a college education. Surprisingly, most colleges and universities that teach accounting don't prepare their graduates to provide the needs of small businesses. They design their curriculum to prepare students to work in Fortune 500 companies. That's less than 5% of the businesses. Small buisnesses create 85% of the opportunities in accounting and tax out there.
You can learn the skills needed to offer these valuable services to small businesses at home with just your television and a DVD player. In as little as four weeks, you'll have the real-world skills to offer valuable services that every small business owner needs.
Not only is a small business bookkeeping and accounting practice a great home-based business, keep reading and I'll share with you why it's the perfect business to start part-time.

I started in the warehouse and drove the delivery truck. I learned to work at the feet of my father. He didn't make it easy, but he taught me to value customers and take pride in my work . . . and myself.
As my father and I swept the warehouse floor together, I learned the importance of doing a job right, even if it was just sweeping the floor. By washing the delivery truck every week, I learned to take pride in my appearance and how I presented myself. My father made sure I learned these important lessons when I was young enough to still listen.
Owning a profitable and rewarding home-based bookkeeping and tax practice provides a wonderful opportunity to share your values with your children and teach them skills they'll never learn in school, like the value of an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. You'll better prepare them for life.
Whether or not they make accounting their career, they'll learn skills that will prove critically important in real life, regardless of the profession they choose. I don't work for my father anymore, but the lessons he taught me are still a big part of who I am and what I do. (And I haven't worked for him for almost 25 years.)

My parents built a life together in the family business for many years. Do you like spending time together and enjoy each other's company, working together to accomplish a goal? Starting a professional bookkeeping and tax practice could be the perfect choice for you. What's more, working together towards a common goal often strengthens a marriage.
If you'd like to read more about what makes partnering with your spouse the chosen situation for many couples, click HERE.
Many couples find that segmenting their business to include bookkeeping and tax preparation creates the perfect team environment for working together. As one spouse provides all the bookkeeping and accounting services the other spouse can focus on tax planning and preparation, creating a one-two punch to meet all the financial needs of their clients. What's more, it's a great business to start part-time. Build your business, then decide if you want to make the jump to full-time.
Later in this article, I'll reveal even more about the advantages of adding professional tax preparation services to your business.
Most people just don't have the means to drop everything and throw the dice. You don't have to with a small business bookkeeping practice. Starting part-time (20 hours per week or less) is a smart way to start your bookkeeping and accounting practice and never risk you present full-time income.
For the average small business bookkeeping client, you'll spend will about 8 to 10 hours per month to do their books. (As you become more efficient, you'll spend even less time.) As you start your practice, you can adjust how much time you have to spend with the needs of your clients. If it takes longer, you'll charge more.
That 8 to 10 hours spent will generate a monthly income of $300. That's $30 to almost $40 per hour. As you become more efficient and more familiar with your customers books, expect to earn $60 per hour or more. That's a rare part-time income.
The graph at the right illustrates what you can expect as you build your part-time bookkeeping practice. Since your average client earns you $300 per month, it won't take many clients before you're earning a very profitable income.
Experience has taught us, with very little marketing effort, you can expect to find one or two clients per month who will welcome your services and gladly pay for the expertise that you contribute to their small businesses.
Working part-time (20 hours per week and 8 hours per client per month) you can easily earn $3000 per month or $36,000 per year. That's a pretty good part-time income, don't you think?
Many people find 10 clients a great benchmark for either making the jump to full-time or semi-retirement. The beauty of this business is your ability to make that decision for yourself. You determine what's best for your family and your circumstance. To learn more about how you can semi-retire in less than 12 months even with $0 in savings today, click HERE.
Very few businesses offer you the opportunity to provide this kind of value to your clients and get paid so well to do it. You might be asking yourself, "Can I really go full-time? I thought CPA's did this kind of thing for small businesses."
Although some CPA's offer small business bookkeeping and accounting services, they typically charge at rates too high for the average small business. (In fact, most CPA's charge between $100 and $200 per hour.) As a small business bookkeeping and accounting expert, you'll charge $30 to $60 per hour and be confident you provide more value than a CPA. (Most CPA's don't learn small business accounting in college. In fact, over the years we've trained a lot of CPA's to work with small businesses too.)
Unlike many business opportunities today, taking the step to a full-time bookkeeping and accounting business is usually a smooth transition. As you work with clients and become more and more familiar with different businesses and their accounting needs, you'll find that you'll become more efficient. This adds up to more freedom to spend your time doing just exactly what matters most to you.
Take another look at the above graph. Look at the income potential with only 20 clients. (What we consider a full-time business.) Working 40 hours per week or less, you will enjoy the freedom and lifestyle that earning $6000 per month creates. It's up to you. Part-time or full-time, bookkeeping and accounting is a great way to reach your financial goals.

Whether or not you start your bookkeeping service with a tax practice, it should be a part of your master plan. Why? It just makes sense. Not only will it create an additional income steam for your business, it provides a greater level of service and value to your clients.
It's been said that the difference between tax planning and tax filing is just the date. After December 31st, the time for tax planning is over. It's time to file.
By offering your clients tax planning services all year long you'll be able to demonstrate the value of your services, bill at a consist ant rate, and provide the additional services key to helping your clients make informed tax decisions all year long. Experience has taught us that the average small business owner will gladly pay your bookkeeping practice an additional $100 per month for the benefit of your tax advice and expertise.
