How to easily manage your business finances so you can stop losing sleep,
build a profitable, sustainable business, and spend more time focusing on what you love.

I see you, Solopreneur

You are a total badass, whether you think so or not. You are brave for pursuing a life of freedom and making a living doing what you’re passionate about. 

BUT, and I’m just guessing here, when it comes to your finances, you’re a little lost:

  • You have no idea if you’re doing it right.
  • You’re not sure exactly what needs to be tracked.
  • You don’t know what you can deduct.
  • You’re not paying yourself.
  • You have no idea  how much to save for taxes.
  • You don’t know what documents you need to get those taxes filed.
  • You’re frustrated and overwhelmed when you open your spreadsheet or accounting file. 
  • You don’t feel secure, like the ground could shift from under your feet any minute.
  • You may even wake up in the middle of the night worrying that a huge tax bill is coming due, or that you’re not bringing in enough money to even cover your expenses.
  • You’re disorganized physically and unmotivated mentally.
  • You just need someone to help “get your house in order.” 
  • You’ve taken other courses and ended up more confused than when you started, making you want to throw in the towel.

OR maybe you have a system that’s working for you, but:

  • You’re still a little nervous that you’re forgetting something.
  • You want to bring your business to the next level.
  •  You want to be able to see the big picture, and how your numbers affect your bottom line.
  • You need a better understanding of what all those P&L’s and Balance Sheets mean.
  • You want to grow and learn a better way to manage your cash so it’s not flying out the door as soon as you make it.
It’s a lot. I get it. And I want you to know, there’s no shame in any of this. 
 

But in order for your business to succeed, you’re going to need a better way.

There's Hope for you yet, Sweet solo

I created Bookkeeping: Beyond the Boring  (BBtB) just for you.  I want to take the solo out of solopreneur. Because you shouldn’t have to figure it all out yourself, cobbling together your system and plans together from this YouTube video and that article written in accountant speak and that piece of advice from a friend. You should have one person who makes it easy to understand and – dare I say? – fun!

I want to get you from frustrated and overwhelmed to:

  • Confident that you are the badass business owner I know you to be.
  • Empowered to make business decisions with certainty because you have all the information you need.
  • Excited to do your books and Make. That. Money!
  • Educated on best business practices, things to avoid or look out for, and how to use your data.
  • Sleeping better because you know what you’re doing, that your expenses will be paid, and you’ll have enough for taxes.
  • Supported by someone who isn’t going to shame you because you don’t know speak accountant – that’s not everyone’s bag, and that’s why I have a job!
  • Secure in your finances, knowing no one is taking advantage of you and the IRS isn’t going to be knocking down your door.
  • Wealthy from your growing business.
  • Freer (is that a word?) because you’ll have less stress and more focus on where you are and where you want to go. 
  • Time rich now that you have step-by-step instructions and don’t have to spend hours Googling how to do everything.
  • Sustained with simple business practices.

About your instructor

I’m Kaela Coble, a QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor and Xero Certified Advisor, trained and certified by the gold standard Bookkeeper Launch program. I live with my husband in a small Vermont town and spend my days on my computer with two dogs at my feet and a cat who I’m convinced will one day murder me in my sleep.

I work exclusively with women-identified solopreneurs and microbusiness owners like you to clean up and maintain their books, but I go far beyond that with my clients. I provide in-depth analysis of their numbers, advising to make good business decisions, coaching to set and achieve goals for their businesses that also feel good in their souls, and cheerleading all along the way.

I approach everything with kindness and a sense of humor – no shaming because you’re behind on your books or don’t understand accounting principles here! 

BBtB was born because I talk to a LOT of women business owners and we all have a LOT in common. Aside from all the troubles I listed above, we all have imposter syndrome, we all have a million people and To Do’s competing for our attention. We’ve all been raised to not talk about money and not to want money, because it’s our job to give and give and give until we have nothing left. There is a lot of shame and humiliation about debt, about not understanding, about being behind.

F all that!

While bookkeeping might seem boring – entering income and expenses, whoop-dee-do, right? – it’s about so much more than that. It’s about empowering women to take control of your finances and, by extension, give you the wealth and freedom you deserve.

Here's what you get with bBtB:

Short, easy-to-digest instructional videos, presented in a fun, engaging, and easy to understand way.

You will learn the basics:

  • Establishing a business entity
  • Separating business and personal assets
  • What exactly you need to track and how
  • Tips to move bookkeeping from torturous to tolerable (and maybe even FUN)
  • The pros and cons of spreadsheets vs. accounting softwares
  • What you can write off
  • How to reconcile your accounts and why it’s important
  • What reports to run, how to run them and, more importantly, how to read them
  • Common mistakes and how to avoid them
  • Who you should have on your financial team

And a simple, easy to establish system to distribute your income so you can:

  • PAY YOURSELF!!!
  • Budget for your operating expenses
  • Be prepared for income taxes
  • Have FUN money (remember fun? It’s part of why you established your business) that will also help sustain you in your business ownership journey
  • Make better business decisions
  • Easily know when it is time to scale up!
  • Have a solid plan for managing cash flow, including what to do once you really start raking in the bucks

We’ll talk about outsourcing:

  • Signs you’re ready to outsource your bookkeeping
  • How to find a GREAT bookkeeper vs. a “just okay” one.
  • Red flags of a scammy bookkeeper and how to protect your money from scams and theft

And no course dealing with money would be complete without discussing Money Mindset
In fact, it’s so important that we kick off the course discussing:

  • Identifying your limited beliefs
  • Being confident charging more
  • Getting your messages to the universe on point
  • Overcoming imposter syndrome
  • Releasing scarcity mindset

PLUS, you’ll receive:

  • The bookkeeping checklist that tells you what you should be doing weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually
  • An income and expenses tracker
  • A complete list of tax write-offs
  • A tax mapping spreadsheet that will make filling out your tax form a breeze
  • A calculator and instructions to do pay yourself and distribute the rest of your income – this is the big one!

What Others Are Saying about BBtB

Bookkeeping Beyond the Boring was definitely not boring! I learned so much and Kaela made it so easy to understand, didn’t overcomplicate an already overwhelming topic and she was so accepting of the idea that it’s okay if you don’t now what you’re doing! I felt inspired and realized it’s not as scary as I thought. She broke down money management in a fun and engaging way, highly recommend! 
                  – Kelsey T.

This workshop provided the practical information I needed presented with an engaging spirit. After having ‘figure out the books for our business’ as an overwhelming and undoable task on my to-do-list, I walked away from the workshop with knowledge and concrete action steps that I felt inspired to take immediately!
                    – Anne K.

I learned a lot from BBtB. It made me feel more confident and motivated to take better control of my bookkeeping for my small business. I am glad I did it!
                    – Mary C.

I would highly recommend BBtB with Kaela. She was a very engaging and fun teacher (even on Zoom)! She was clear and concise, covering all the relevant topics in a way that was very easy to understand and digest – especially for a beginner business owner. It was amazing the amount of content she fit in. Definitely take this course, you’ll be glad you did!
                        – Jill R.

don't Miss out!

I’m hard at work finalizing BBtB to be the best, most useful course I can offer you. It will be ready in Spring of 2023, and I want you to be the first to know about it. Join the waitlist so you’ll be kept in the loop when it becomes available, and best of all, have access to discounted pricing!!!
