    Top FAQs

    • I'm not sure I have time for this. How long do I have access to the course?

      When you sign up for the one payment plan, you get immediate access to all lessons and you can do the lessons at your own pace.

      With the 9-month payment plan, you will receive access to course lessons over 9 months. Every 30 days, new lessons will be released. This is great if you want to take the course at a slower pace. You'll have time to implement what you learn. Regardless of the payment plan you choose, you have lifetime access to the course and all the material, so there's no need to worry if you need to take it slowly.

    • I'm not sure if I'm ready for this course. Do I need bookkeeping experience?

      This course doesn't teach the basics of bookkeeping or how to use QuickBooks Online. You should have a good understanding of both before starting this training. If you're new to bookkeeping, please feel free to check out my other bookkeeping resources and come back to this course when you're ready.

    • My bookkeeping practice is still small. Does this course make sense for me?

      This program is a good fit for those who want to grow their bookkeeping business, take a brick & mortar business virtual, or transition out of a bookkeeper or accountant 9-5 and become your own boss. If you're ready to invest in yourself and create the virtual firm of your dreams, this course is for you.

    • Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

      Due to the massive value and resources provided in this course, we do not provide a money back guarantee. If you are unsatisfied with this course, contact us in the first 30 days and we will discuss your specific circumstances and agree upon a mutually beneficial resolution.
