How to start an Bookkeeping Retirement Business
Most small businesses hate accounting, can’t afford the big accounting firms (who aren’t trained to work with small firms anyway and often outsource the work to bookkeepers). Most small firms can’t afford full-time bookkeepers either.
This leaves the field wide open for YOU.
This is a recession-proof business as taxes must be paid and books kept no matter what the economy is like.
If you have worked in accounting departments why not consider going out on your own.
Many community college now offer courses and the software options are many starting with QuickBooks Pro for Accountants. You could even get H&R Block’s Premium software for preparing your clients taxes.
