Our telemarketers talk with many of your peers, some of whom have been laid off and are looking for work. As we encourage them to see this time as an opportunity to launch their own accounting practices, they are hesitant, and some flat-out refuse, explaining that they want to find a job before they enroll in our training.
When we call them back in a few months, we find that they’ve run out of savings or unemployment and can no longer afford to enroll; they also haven’t found a job. It’s at this regrettable point that both the potential student and our salesperson realize that had that person acted 3 months earlier, he or she would be in a much better situation now.
Employment Uncertainty: The Perfect Opportunity
The recession has changed the workforce, driving many into self-employment out of necessity rather than choice. If you’ve ever wanted to start your own practice, it’s important that you do so on your own terms, as the result of strategic planning and foresight. Waiting for a pink slip to “inspire” your entrepreneurial spirit will launch your startup prematurely and on shaky ground.
If you currently have a full-time job, you can take steps now to plan for self-employment while enjoying the security of a regular paycheck. If you’ve recently lost your job, don’t lose hope; you can still use this time to increase your skill-set and build a practice as your re-build your career.
Make Small-Business Accounting Your Business
Small business accounting is a valuable niche market. In fact, over 90% of accounting opportunities can be found in the small business arena. Universal Accounting Center (UAC) has been training professionals like you in small business accounting for 30 years because they recognize what many do not; most universities and trade programs are teaching students corporate accounting which isn’t preparing them for the typical, real-world accounting experiences they will encounter.
The Professional Bookkeeper Program
Becoming a small-business accountant doesn’t require years of your valuable time. UAC’s Professional Bookkeeper (PB) Program is not only reputable, but it’s self-paced, enabling a busy professional like you to take your time or complete the program quickly, in less than 60 hours.
And when you take this program you are trained to act as your clients’ Profit Expert. What is a Profit Expert? A proactive accountant who realizes that the information he/she generates provides crucial data that can make or break a business. It’s the accountant’s job to share this data with business owners, explaining it in such a way that they both understand what the information indicates and can use it to make informed business decisions. The PB Program will train you how to do that.
You will gain the confidence and skill necessary to start and manage nearly every client’s books, and when you have a question, our follow-up program enables you to call and ask one of our seasoned professionals.
