Now’s the Perfect Time to Launch Your Startup


Now’s the Perfect Time to Launch Your Startup

In a recent USA Today article, author Steve Strauss proclaimed that “…this is, without a doubt, the greatest time ever—and I mean ever in the entire course of human history—to start, own, run and grow a business.”  He credits this to five new emergent elements that are converging to create an ideal environment for small businesses.  Here we share three of those five elements:

1. Attitudes. Small business and entrepreneurialism are all the rage right now.  Perhaps a decade or so ago, people would question the reliability and longevity of a startup.  But with the popularity of entrepreneurialism and the understanding that supporting small business strengthens the economy, people don’t shy away from startups like they used to.  In fact, these days people rally around them.

 2. Technology. Technology advances daily.  If you can utilize the power of technology to drive your business, you will be successful.  Whether it be through a professional website, social networks, or ecommerce, you can use technology to advance your startup and ensure its success.

 3.   Tide of history.  Strauss explains, “All of the above combined means that the wave of the future and tide of the present are all headed in one direction.  Toward the ascendance and dominance of entrepreneurship and small business in the global marketplace.”

Strauss proclaims that “the business of America is small business.  But let’s not stop there.  Let’s double down.  The business of the world is now small business.”

Take advantage of this time to launch your own startup.  Because if Strauss is right, and Universal believes he is, you can accomplish your dream to start and maintain a successful financial practice this year!

Universal’s Training Programs Can You Launch a Profitable Accounting and/or Tax Practice

Startup costs for an accounting and tax practice are minimal.  You can begin part-time and work from home.  In a market pining for accountants and bookkeepers, you’ll quickly build a client base that will allow you to work full-time and enjoy the lifestyle of which you’ve always dreamed.


Universal’s Professional Bookkeeper Program (PB) will train you in the practical application of small-business accounting while enabling you to earn a professional designation, which demonstrates your expertise and true professionalism.  Not only that, but the PB Program will also train you to market your practice, eliminating the competition because of the unique and valuable services you offer clients.

Tax Preparation

And why not offer more than just accounting services?  Many people would like to find a one-stop financial provider where someone will meet their accounting and tax needs.  By learning how to prepare individual and business returns you will become a full-service financial provider.  Not only that, but the income potential for tax preparers is significant.  You can charge $100 + per hour for your tax services!

Like the PB Program, Universal’s Professional Tax Preparer (PTP) Program enables you to earn certification that can put your clients at ease, especially in this day and age of changing tax law.

We’re in the business of seeing individuals like you successfully launch and/or grow their own accounting and tax practices.  But don’t take our word for it.  Read from the many testimonials we have received from students, thanking us for the training that has helped them gain the knowledge, skill, and confidence necessary to earn promotions, start their practices, and/or secure more clients.  Enroll in these powerful programs today by calling 1-877-833-7909.
