Frequently Asked Questions

Designed for bookkeepers starting and managing their own bookkeeping business. With the skills gained in this course, you will be able to perform the day-to-day and monthly bookkeeping tasks required for a small service business.

Yes. We can use your preferred cloud accounting software choice – QuickBooks, FreshBooks, or Xero. All of the subjects are taught through the software and not as a separate software training course.

Although it’s not a prerequisite, it’s easier to learn if you come in with your own bookkeeping clients that we can use as an example for step-by-step tutorials. Without real clients, we will need to use a test company file on the accounting software, which has many restrictions. With your own clients, training is more effective.

Each session comes with assignments that Sal will assign. If you’re stuck on an assignment, email support is available for quick questions. You can email Sal and she will help you through the assignment with either a written email or a 1-2 minute video. If the problem is complex, Sal will cover it live through a session.


Sal helped make the bookkeeping process easy and was patient in spending time with me to help me understand Quickbooks online. She has a wealth of knowledge of how to effectively integrate various tech tools and was a pleasure to work with both virtually and in person. I would highly recommend her.

Tosin Founder Case Study

“Sal is amazing. She helped me with bookkeeping best strategies, marketing, and social media marketing. Sal shared her own business bookkeeping contents and checklists with me. To be honest, it’s so hard to find someone you can trust that’s amazing at strategy but also execution. Sal is it! She listened to me on calls, provided guidance and helped me recognize areas for improvement. I also gained marketing skills I didn’t have before. She over-delivers to help me reach my ultimate goal and doesn’t give the bare minimum. I feel so fortunate that I met Sal – and to be working with her.” I will be hiring Sal again and again. In fact, we have another call booked in two weeks. “
