Discover How to Manage Your Business or Your Clients' Business

Managing your business can seem like more than a 9 to 5 job. Yet, a couple of reasons you became a Freelancer were for the Freedom & Flexibility. Do not allow managing Your Business or Your Clients' Business to interfere with your plan. Whether just beginning your own business or assisting your clients with their business, take it one step at time, from the type of business to the software you use. In this workshop we will focus on these aspects of managing a business as well as billable hours, figuring out your wage, and invoicing clients. Managing businesses has become increasingly difficult. In addition, many businesses have software and subscriptions to help run parts of the business. All of these needs can lead to overload if you do not take preventative measures by putting boundaries, processes and systems in place, as well as managing your own self-care needs. But you can successfully balance it all. Many freelancers struggle with these aspects of business life, and we will help you successfully manage all of them for you or your clients.

    Bookkeeping & Business Management Instructor

    "I'm excited and honored to be able to help you learn how to offer 'Bookkeeping As A Service'. I am Tammy Durden and I have over 30 years' experience between corporate accounting and virtual bookkeeping. I have the equivalent of an AA in Business with an Accounting Major. I am certified in Freshbooks and Zohobooks, and am qualified in Quickbooks Online. I spent many years in the corporate accounting world until our miracles arrived, then I took a little family time. I still continued to keep my skills fresh by working part-time, or virtually (before it was 'virtual') helping companies with their books. Twelve years ago I began my freedom journey into entrepreneurship! I began in Virtual Assistant work, offering many services including bookkeeping. I have worked with many different industries and although I do not consider myself an expert, numbers have always been my 'thing'. My business has transitioned many times over the years with bookkeeping as a great staple to our service offerings. It allowed me to transition our company into a boutique digital marketing agency as well as given me the ability to open my coaching company - a true dream come true! I know you can achieve anything you set your minds to also.

    I liked how Tammy broke down the planning by day, week, quarter, etc. It really gets you to think granular and get specific.

    This was a great introduction to Business Management, not only to run your own business more effectively but also tools to help clients run their business in a more efficient manner. It gave insights into why this is so necessary, how to record the tasks you do each day, how to create a Manual of Operations and so much more.

    I really enjoyed this workshop; it wasn't too long, and it was a great refresher for getting 'back to basics' about how to manage my business. I came away with a clear idea of annual/quarterly/monthly/weekly and daily checklists for recurring tasks. And it re enforced the importance of logging your systems and processes into a 'manual' that anyone should be able to follow, should you be sick, go on holiday, or hand parts of the business to someone else, for example if you built up a team. Thank you Tammy.
