Universal Accounting is out to help accountants and bookkeepers to understand how to market their trade and to help their business clients become profitable. The training and programs are great. The materials and the presentations were very easy to follow and enlightening. All the presenters, the staff were great. It is comforting to know that I have this great company (UAC and staff) to provide support to me if I need it or falter. Thanks for a great job.

I was thinking about Universal Accounting the other day…I took your course…as a newly divorced stay at home Mom of two very small children. I did very well in the class, but it was your marketing methods that allowed me to build a business successfully.
I have clients all over Salt Lake City who are always amazed at what I can do vs what their previous bookkeepers have done for them. I support my family solely on my own and make a very good wage doing it. I own a home, drive a nice car and have been home every afternoon at 3pm when my kids walk in from school.
So, what I wanted to say was Thank you. But in addition, I really feel a need to help pass this on to others. I’d love an opportunity to spend some of my time coaching or just speaking at the introductory seminars. I am living proof this works and it works well.

Your course got me started in my bookkeeping business and I went full time in 2 months at the end of 2008! I’m still going!
– Cammie Hughes
Words cannot describe how much your course has contributed to my knowledge and confidence in going out there and getting clients.
In the past, I have attended different courses that related to [the] Accounting designation that I was planning to achieve. Although some of the professors at the college were good, the courses were very expensive and difficult to follow. I had to drop out because my mother was ill, and I never went back.
Wishing that I would have taken this course first before going for the CGA. This, I would strongly recommend to anyone who is planning to become an Accountant to take this course first.

I am so pleased with my decision on choosing Universal Accounting for my training. Everyone that I have had contact with has been helpful in every way. Thanks to everyone at Universal Accounting.

I was able to quit my job last November… my tax practice is in full swing and my referral business is growing rapidly! It really is true, after you get a few clients, the referrals start popping up, and I am at the point now where my basic living and business expenses are covered – YEAH!!! And business is growing, I have taken on 3 new ongoing bookkeeping clients in the past 2 weeks, with one more probable coming up….
I am very excited about the growth of my business and very thankful to UAC for the help and support I get when I need it.
I knew I needed help marketing my business from the moment I first thought about starting a business. I am an accountant, not a marketing specialist – marketing is like a foreign language to me. I had no idea how to start marketing my business and myself, I needed someone to take me by the hand and lead me step-by-step through the entire marketing process…
With Rick helping me, my networking experience has been nothing short of a miracle. Although I still need some polishing, I have discovered that it is not how professional you sound, but how sincere you are. There is a wealth of people in the business world that want to help you succeed… I no longer feel like a meek little office mouse. I feel enormous pride when I tell people that I am a profit and growth expert who owns a local business.
My confidence in myself and in my skills has grown so much. If you do what your coach asks you to do, you cannot help but succeed.

I really appreciate UAC. It has given me all of the professional accounting knowledge I own. This company has been invaluable to me and I have a feeling that it will continue to be.

My experience with Universal Accounting Marketing Program was stimulating, revealing and most of all educational.
My coach Rick Howard from the offset guided me from being very doubtful to being confident and believing that I have all the qualities to pursue my dream, which is to be a business owner.
When the sessions started I was filled with apprehension and self doubt. Rick explained to me that once I set my goals and follow through, the journey would not be as difficult as I once perceived. He was so right, I now want to tell everyone that I meet about my business. I feel more open and ready to take on more challenges.
I mentioned to Rick once that I was fearful of rejection. He said,I should repeat “So what, who cares, whose next”. I take those words with me each day as I visit the local businesses in my area. I will continue to use the tools that Rick and Universal Accounting has given me to assist me in growing my business. I’ve been attending networking events and have met some real great people and making some new acquaintances. Two weeks from today I’ll be attending my first trade show. Since I signed up for the marketing program I have acquired two new clients and I have a prospect who I am working with. Once again thank you Rick and Universal Accounting for making me believe in myself once again.

I want to let you and your team at Universal Accounting know that I have retired….I wish to express my appreciation to you and your company, especially David and Allen for all that you did for Canwest Accounting and myself. Your ideas and support were very beneficial in improving Canwest Accounting to the point that it had considerable value when I sold it to Sharlane. I am financially able to enjoy a comfortable retirement… My biggest regret is that I did not begin my association with Universal Accounting 10 years sooner.
Things that I found beneficial were your concept and advice on marketing (a major weakness in bookkeepers and accountants ); pricing and how to sell the value, and the financial reports that compare my client with others in the same industry.

If you want direction and actual steps to take to grow your practice you will not be disappointed.

I had a general business background but I didn’t specifically know how to do bookkeeping and I realized if I was going to be able to sell my services to small business owners I would have to be both confident that I could discuss their needs and offer solutions and competent enough to follow through on my promises.
I enrolled in the courses last November and finished in about a month. I officially launched my business at the beginning of the year. I was able to get my first client within a week of starting- they are still with me, by the way- I have not had a single client leave- and since then I am now up to 16 monthly clients with several more starting soon and I have also done quite a bit of one off project work each month. I am now at the point where I have had to turn down some work and I am about to sign a lease for a small office and start looking for my first employee so I can continue to go out and pull in new clients and have someone to take over a portion of the work. I can definitely say that taking these courses was what enabled me to have the ability to go out and make this happen.
It has now been only two years since I invested in the Universal Accounting Program. I purchased the whole system including Bookkeeping, Tax, QuickBooks and Universal Practice Builder. In addition I also purchased the coaching.
At that point I had just opened Expert Tax Solutions, Inc and focused on tax accounting, bookkeeping and QuickBooks. In three short tax seasons I have built up to over 250 new clients from ground zero. It is a dream comes true. In addition to this I now have six new bookkeeping clients and numerous consulting jobs with Quick Books clients.
I just have to let you know that I don’t think I would have had the guts to pursue this dream if it were not for your program. The training is wonderful, but the coaching is necessary as well. The confidence that I received from the knowledge that if I really encounter something that is beyond me, there was a team to coach me through it was the key to my success.
My tax practice is now approaching $50,000 in revenue in the third tax season. You were right! The demand is unbelievable for good, conscientious tax professionals, this I know first-hand! Thanks again for being such an important part of my business success! I am glad I invested it has really paid off!

The Universal Accounting Program gave me the confidence I needed to pursue a job as an Asst. Controller, that most people would say I was not qualified for. Because of the changes to the real estate market this job was short lived but I have since become employed as a Full Charge Bookkeeper at a retail home and garden store. Thank you Universal Accounting Center for giving me the confidence I lacked and the belief in my abilities to know what I am worth.
– Nancy Martinez
I would recommend this course to any accountant
