Sylvia Jaumann, author of How to Get Bookkeeping Clients Quickly: The Bookkeeping Business Marketing Guidebook and Secrets to Starting & Running Your Own Bookkeeping Business: Freelance Bookkeeping at Home has been a professional bookkeeper for more than 21 years. Years ago, Sylvia decided to go out on her own and start her own bookkeeping business as she knew that self-employed bookkeepers make more money than employed ones.
But she found the going tough for the first year as she struggled with all the requirements needed to start a bookkeeping business and make it profitable. There was literally no information on starting a bookkeeping business available at the time, so she had a lot to learn along the way.
She ended up subcontracting for a professional bookkeeper just to make ends meet and discovered many tips and tricks to running a bookkeeping business that she didn't know before.
Sylvia took what she learned and turned it into the aforementioned books so that bookkeepers from all over the world can benefit from her experience and not struggle like she did.
