SUCCESS STORIES

Meet Iyanna

The single mom who turned her passion into a $6,000/month bookkeeping business.

Before

Burnt out by a demanding job, Iyanna wanted to find a way to make more money doing something she loved.

Using Bookkeeper Business

Despite having zero bookkeeping experience, she discovered she could turn her passion for finance into a business that helped entrepreneurs.

After

Iyanna is doing work she loves that pays better than her old job. She only works 20 hour/week, so she’s free to spend afternoons and evenings with her young daughter.

"I WASN’T HAPPY WITH WHAT I WAS DOING WITH MY LIFE..."

Iyanna worked as a foster mom and had a two-year-old girl of her own.

From morning to night, she was cooking, cleaning, and doing menial tasks. She loved her kids but was feeling worn out. And deep down, she felt she was meant for something more. As she says:

“I was the definition of overwhelmed. I was serving everyone else and not living my purpose.”

So Iyanna began to look for other jobs. Since she was always good with numbers, she figured she could do accounting.

But putting her daughter in daycare to make $15/hour in a stuffy office wasn’t something she was interested in.

Neither was spending tens of thousands of dollars on a degree.

Iyanna thought about becoming a bookkeeping professional, but friends and family warned her not to!

“People were telling me bookkeepers don’t make that much money.”

But Iyanna knew something they didn’t. She knew that if she made bookkeeping a business, there would be no limit to her income!

Iyanna didn’t have any experience as a bookkeeper or a business owner. And she realized that the only place she could learn both those skills was in Bookkeeper Business Launch.

The price of the program scared Iyanna. But she knew if she applied herself, she’d be able to earn her money back over time. So she decided to join — but she didn’t tell friends or family!

"I DIDN’T HAVE AN ENTREPRENEURIAL BONE IN MY BODY..."

Iyanna never thought she’d start a business.

She didn’t even think she was the type of person who could.

“I never saw myself as an entrepreneur. I’m an introvert; I can’t just talk to anyone. And I don’t have that strong personality business owners have.”

But Iyanna soon discovered none of that mattered. Because launching a bookkeeping business was just a matter of following proven steps inside the program.

First, the Bookkeeper Business Launch course taught her how to do bookkeeping the right way.

Then, she got step-by-step instruction for launching her business. It showed her how to create an online presence, reach out to clients, and get everything up-and-running.

“You learn all the roadblocks and stepping stones inside the course.

First, you learn to set up a LinkedIn profile. Second, you tell people in your circle about your business. Then you set up an onboarding process…

Having all that helps you get out of your own head and implement.”

"CAN I REALLY RUN A BUSINESS?"

Iyanna took her time going through the program.

After a few months, it was time to launch her business.

But that’s when Iyanna faced her biggest challenge yet.

Iyanna was terrified to reach out to potential clients because she didn’t have any experience in bookkeeping or accounting.

She felt like an “imposter.”

“There were other bookkeepers in my niche already who had more experience. I thought, ‘Who am I to do this?’ I felt like everyone already had a dance partner, and I wasn’t good enough.”

"I GOT A NEW A CLIENT EVERY MONTH"

To help her get over that fear, Iyanna used a trick she learned from Bookkeeper Business Launch.

She asked a friend to be her “beta tester.” In other words, she offered to do her friend’s books free for two months. That way, Iyanna could get experience and build her confidence.

After a few weeks, Iyanna’s friend was thrilled. So much so that she put up a post on Facebook telling other business owners to hire Iyanna.

From there, the clients came pouring in.

“At first, things were slow. Then I got the beta tester who began recommending me to people. I began to get a new client every month. That’s when I realized this was a real business.*”

Clients continued to reach out to Iyanna.

By early 2017, about 6 months after launching her business, she was up to 5 clients.

And from there, Iyanna’s income took-off.

“In the first quarter or 2017, my bookkeeping business made more than it did in all of 2016.”

The best part? Iyanna barely had to do anything to land her new clients!

Even though Bookkeeper Business Launch taught her strategies for landing clients, she rarely needed to use them.

Everyone continued to recommend her to friends and colleagues.

“Word travels fast. 90% of my clients come through on referrals.”

"I’M SERVING MY PURPOSE..."

Iyanna had so many clients she was forced to turn some away.

The ones Iyanna chose to stay with were the people she loved working with most.

Iyanna discovered that helping entrepreneurs with their finances lights her up. It gave her a sense of purpose she had been missing in her life.

“I’m their biggest cheerleader. When they win, I feel like I win. It warms my heart to know they’re paying themselves and able to put their husband or spouse on salary.”

Iyanna wants to do all she can for her clients. So she created additional bookkeeping-related packages to help them. They include budget support, cash flow management, and more.

These help Iyanna get larger paychecks from her clients — and make her even more indispensable to them.

"I WANT MY DAUGHTER TO HAVE ALL THE THINGS I DIDN’T HAVE..."

Her “shy introvert” shell has started to break apart. So much so that people have invited her to speak at their events.

“I’ve done a couple of speaking engagements where I teach about the importance of bookkeeping. Last weekend, I was on a speaking panel with millionaires. I couldn’t believe it.”

Even though her career is exploding, her primary focus is spending time with her daughter.

“I work about 20 hours a week. I’m not a ‘hustle hustle’ girl. I have a little one, so I can’t afford to work nonstop. So I won’t work when she’s home. And I know when to take time to myself.”

Iyanna has begun to hire a team so she can earn more while working less. She now has three people handling the day-to-day email and bookkeeping work she used to do.

Her goal is to make $12,000/month with her business. And eventually, become a millionaire with her company.
