Review on Amazon by Andrea Young-Miles, Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor

I have read quite a few books regarding bookkeeping services, consulting services and tax services but this is the first book I have read regarding QuickBooks consulting services – which is the main service area of my business. I think this is an excellent reference guide for anyone that is starting or growing a QuickBooks consulting business.

I found Michelle’s information on marketing, performing engagements, establishing billing rates and growing the business very helpful. Prior to reading this book I would constantly read the QuickBooks on-line forums especially on practice development to gain insight from other QuickBooks consultants. I have even tried contacting consultants that have been in business for quite some time to see if they would offer some advice, tips or insight for a “newbie”. Unfortunately I have not had much luck until now. Michelle’s chapters entitled:

* Common Mistakes Consultants Make
* Advice From Other ProAdvisors
* What Consultants Wish They Would Have Known Sooner
* Keys to Success

contain the information that I have been looking for! I wish I would have known about her book when I first started my practice these four chapters alone would have definitely saved me a lot of time and money. If you have ever wondered “can QuickBooks consulting be an ideal business for me”, “I’m a Pro-Advisor what’s my next step”, “what works and what doesn’t work when growing a QuickBooks consulting business”, “can I make any money at this”, “how can I find more QuickBooks clients” – BUY THIS BOOK!
