During my involvement in the accounting industry over the last 40+ years, many small business owners have asked for help handling their bookkeeping; trying to figure out how to enter transactions accurately, analyze their figures, know about various deadlines, payroll processing and tax returns.
This is why I created DIYBookkeeping.net in order to HELP.
Welcome to DIYBookkeeping.net
I have been told that many of you struggle with keeping up on the bookkeeping for your business. We are here to help you with that struggle. So often you are trying to understand what accounting is all about, and don’t realize that by understanding your business’ financial situation (understanding your “numbers”), it will help you to build a more profitable and successful business.
When I’ve talked with many of my colleagues about their “bookkeeping needs” they voiced that they wanted to handle their own bookkeeping; DIY (do it yourself); whether they wanted to “save” some money (that’s another conversation), wanted to be in control of their finances, or just wanted to KNOW-HOW to do it themselves.
Since they are not accountants or CPA’s and are juggling a lot of other “hats” in their business they often become frustrated with doing their bookkeeping and end up setting it aside to “do later.” The problem here is that “later” never seems to come and at year-end all they have is a shoebox of receipts and paperwork to hand over to their CPA. It usually ends up taking their CPA a lot more time to figure it all out in order to process their tax return. And of course, he will charge you for that time.
What you thought would be “saving time and money” ends up costing you even more.
I have always enjoyed working with numbers, getting things to balance…to the penny! Bookkeeping has always been easy for me to understand. But I’ve realized that is not always the case with new business owners.
That is why I decided that I wanted to help Women Entrepreneurs understand their finances, if only to have a basic understanding so they can get by in their business, have it done accurately until such time that they may or may not decide to hire internally or outsource it to a bookkeeper.
I will be providing your with blog posts and video tutorials on a weekly basis, about various accounting topics to help you with the 1-2-3 steps on how to complete individual accounting tasks.
Having specialized in bookkeeping services for women-owned, small businesses owners and Solopreneurs, I have enjoyed helping them to —
- understand their “numbers” – their finances,
- work on the minutia of balancing their business’ “Books”,
- know how much money they have, and how best to use it in building a successful business.

If you are a small business owner and you struggle with understanding your bookkeeping, this is the place for you. You will gain knowledge on how to “DIY” (do it yourself) your business’ bookkeeping. The typical Solopreneur usually starts their business because they’ve enjoyed doing something creative and now hope that they can monetize it. They usually wear a lot of “hats;” trying to do everything themselves, but seeing how much is involved in the actual running of a business, they realize that they don’t have a lot of time to devote to their bookkeeping. As a result, they may fall behind or not do it at all.
