Where To Listen To The New QBOChat Podcast


The Build Your Best Bookkeeping Practice Podcast launched on November 1, 2019. I’ll be talking about most of the topics we’ve discussed in the chats but with my own spin. I’m going to focus on giving you a no BULL, fun, and informative podcast about building a bookkeeping practice of YOUR dreams.

Start Listening Today Wherever You Get Your Podcasts

I’m tired of all the thought leaders telling us what we have to do. It’s time for you to be YOU! It doesn’t matter to me what type of bookkeeping practice you build. What matters to me is that you build one that you enjoy and are proud of.

So, I’ll be talking about the business of having a bookkeeping business. The ups and downs. The ins and outs. All the different types of practices you can build. Benefits of doing things one way or another. No pressure. I just want to provide a space to make you think and figure out what is best for you.

I’m sad to see the twitter chat go, but I needed to make space for something that will be bigger and I am even more passionate about - helping all of YOU and in turn, making better bookkeepers for all the small businesses out there that desperately need our help. Remember, we are the force behind the small businesses that are driving our economy.

This podcast will be the jumping-off point to so many new conversations on twitter and the Build Your Best QBO Practice facebook group.
