If you're good with numbers, here is the perfect home business training for you!


Learn How to Profit from the Changing Tax Laws and
Double Your Fees as a Bookkeeper with
Our 6-week
Virtual Bookkeeping Course
AND 8-week Apprenticeship,

Taught by Accountant and Internet Expert,
Mauricio Martinez!

Few businesses can get by without a bookkeeper and as the Internet makes it even more possible for people to work at home, the demand for your services as a bookkeeper for small businesses - online AND offline - soar!

This shift creates the perfect opportunity for skilled, trustworthy "numbers people" to serve businesses of all kinds virtually from a home office.

Until recently, businesses have been limited to hiring a bookkeeper to be on-site. But now that outsourcing has become a way of life as companies scramble for ways to reduce their expenses, outsourcing to a bookkeeper who works from home is a win/win situation.
bookkeeping training Rhea Perry Rhea Perry

My name is Rhea Perry and we train bookkeepers who want to work from home or a remote office.

In fact, my bookkeeper has never been to my office. She and her assistant manage all our accounts virtually. I just pay her every month and all my paperwork is done.

Outsourcing Is a Key to Home Business Success

Once I realized how valuable a virtual assistant was for managing my entire business, I soon decided to find someone to manage my bookkeeping as well. I realized that focusing on doing what I'm good at and outsourcing areas I'm not good with is always best for my business. So I have learned to let a bookkeeping expert take care of the books and taxes.

Yet finding reliable help that you can trust can be an issue. And, if you want to work from home as a bookkeeper, how on earth do you find clients?

So one of my Best Friends and I created a training program that teaches accounting AND online marketing, complete with a two-month apprenticeship!

For the Next Three Months,
You Can Take our 6-Week Virtual Bookkeeping Course and
TWO-MONTH Apprenticeship,
Taught By an Accountant and Expert Internet Marketer,
To Learn How You Can Work from Home as a
Virtual Bookkeeper!

Listen to What Mauricio's Students
Have Said About Him

Mauricio Martinez is a truly gifted teacher. His attitude is positive, and he strengthens and uplifts his students. He doesn't just answer questions. He actually encourages and welcomes them!

I like his warm, relaxed style, and the ease with which he laughs and shares his enthusiasm and confidence.

I appreciate the time, thoughtfulness, and organization he put into all the videos. It was easy to get into the details, yet keep sight of the big picture and understand how things work together.

Only one thing was lacking. We didn't get to hear all of Oh Danny Boy ! :-)

Many thanks to Mauricio for this wonderful, answer-to-my-prayers class, and to Rhea for bringing us all together.

Mauricio has produced an amazing bookkeeping class. He has made the subject interesting, and has delivered above and beyond just teaching the mechanics of bookkeeping.

I have always wanted to do something with bookkeeping and/or accounting, but never had the time or money to go back to college. I have also been pretty disillusioned about the college experience, not feeling that they offered the real life training that I needed to actually start making a living.

In this class, Mauricio has done that and so much more. And in an amazingly short period of time. I am excited to move forward with the apprenticeship training of the class, to see how everything works together, and get that real life experience.

Finding, dealing with, and keeping clients has been one of the most important focuses of this class for me. Also developing my USP. Mauricio has been incredibly patient and helpful as he has answered all of my questions.

Thanks for a great class!

I came away from the lab full of energy and optimism. I even did the dishes with a different attitude!

Mauricio is a true gift to all of us, not only for his knowledge and experience...and patience ;-) but for his compassion for wanting to help others. There are very few people who would go above and beyond the way he has and continues to do so.

Mauricio's entire course was not only fun, but full of useful (even vital) information. I especially liked his sincerity, plus the thought and time he put into answering questions that were personally significant. I also appreciate that he gives us a certificate upon full completion of this program.

You'll Also Get
TWO Whole Months of Apprenticeship
Working with Mauricio!

I don't know if you realize how valuable that is but most classes you take even in a live setting don't offer an apprenticeship after the sessions.

The value of an apprenticeship is that you get practical experience putting the knowledge you have just gained to work. You learn first-hand what to do and more importantly, what NOT to do.

If you can find a teacher who can instruct you well on how to become a virtual bookkeeper, good luck. But if you can also find one who is willing to offer you a TWO-MONTH apprenticeship after the course is over, you've hit pay dirt!

Mauricio shares my love for helping entrepreneurs get the education they need to start their own business. He's been where you are. He knows your struggles. And he is as dedicated as I am to helping you get the instruction and experience you need to start your own home business serving others as a virtual bookkeeper.
