From the Publisher
Many bookkeeping services fail because the entrepreneurs focus on bookkeeping and dont take the time to learn how to plan their business and make it profitable. Start & Run a Bookkeeping Business will teach you the basics of running your own business and provide insider tips to keep it running smoothly.
Written in the step-by-step style that has made the Start & Run series the best of its kind, this indispensable guide also addresses issues specific to a bookkeeping service, such as how to assess which clients are profitable and when to involve a professional accountant. By following the principles Angie Mohr outlines and using the worksheets that accompany this book, you will be well on the way to owning a successful bookkeeping business.
Youll learn how to
assess whether running your own business is right for you
decide whether to work from home
market your services cost-effectively
manage your workload and cash flow
and much more!
Whether you are just starting your own business or wanting to expand your bookkeeping business, this book will show you how. It includes chapters on hiring and managing employees, staying competitive, and planning for business growth.
Worksheets and forms are included on the cd-rom in MS Excel, MS Word, and pdf formats for use on a Windows-based PC.

Because of this book, I will shy away from any series published by this company. I should have asked for my money back because you can get better information from the SBA for free.
I don't understand much disappointment in the fact that the author didn't elaborate about a HOME based business over renting a space. To me, the author is doing a great job at comparing both scenarios.
It's not smart going into such a publication expecting a total A-Z run down of what to do in dire detail. Everything is open to customization through personal preference, past experiences, and who you may already has clients, and what your home situation is like.
I love all the examples, and organizational tips such as the business plan examples, surveys for clients, suggestions on bill of sale and credit terms, pros and cons of a home based business, how to schedule yourself and be sure that clients understand there is no "dropping by" after business hours (may be a little more difficult for home-based business), even planning and zoning issues that may come up with a home-based business, good reasons for having a website, and some marketing tips!
For around $10, I think this is a great book to invest in and read through for those considering a home based bookkeeping business or those who have just started.
