How to start out as a bookkeeper?


Find free things to do to start, for example, you can download the QuickBooks Online and Xero Accountant platforms and go through their certification. Your accomplishment would be knowing and understanding their software. That’s a good starting place.

Additionally, it is a good time to look into building your business – the infrastructure. Will you need things like Microsoft Office, business cards, a website, things that do cost money. It would be good to begin planning on these things as well.
Look for events for networking, how will you build your business? Will you have a niche industry or work solely with businesses? Solely with individuals? A mix?
It’s good for planning and strategy.
