If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Welcome to your Bookkeeping Happy Place.
Local Meetings/In Person and Virtual Call – Everyone loves a pajama day but it is also good to get out and talk with each other in person. Local meetings will be set up based on where members are located. If you are interested in being a leader please contact us.
Quarterly Goal Setting – Sometimes we tend to get so involved in our clients that we forget to work on our own business. To stop this from happening, you will be required to make one quarterly business goal and one quarterly health goal.
Bookkeeping Buds Forum - A Safe Haven Forum through our Private Slack Channel to share questions and ideas with other bookkeepers. You will not have to worry that clients are going to stumble across your questions like you do when you post to social media.
Continuing Education Calendar – An interactive calendar which will show current events and trainings from many different sources. This way if you have some time open you can go to the calendar and see if there is any training you can catch up on.
Resources Pages – A directory of vendors and contact information. Also a place for you to say what type of client you are using the particular vendor for.
Member Directory – A directory so small business owners can find you to help with their bookkeeping needs.
Conference Networking – Are you going to one of the national conferences but concerned you won't know anyone? Events will be scheduled at upcoming conferences in order to connect with others in the Buds community before the event begins.
Training Webinars - We will be having webinar training in a variety of topics throughout the year as well as specific vendor webinars to really see how their products can help you.
Member Discounts – Additional discounts will be provided for different services and apps.
Add On Events:
Bookkeeping Buds Retreat – 2 Day Boutique Retreat. A chance for you to spend 2 days on yourself and network with other bookkeepers, top notch speakers and vendors in our industry.
Our members feedback has been extraordinary, here is what they think of the community:
I wouldn't want to run my bookkeeping business without the support of this AMAZING group of women. Once I joined, I felt like I belonged and had a place at the table. I encourage you to check out their retreat in September. You won't be disappointed.
Joanne Diepenheim - Ripple Effects Bookkeeping
This group has opened by eyes to my potential by inspiring me to think outside of my box and challenging me in areas I’m not always so comfortable.
Kelly Ettling – Ledgers, Inc
Being part of Bookkeeping Buds has proved to be an invaluable resource not only for solving bookkeeping and accounting issues, but also for networking and referrals. Our group has evolved into an integral part of my social and professional community. I know that my skills and my practice would not be where they are today if I had not been a member of our bookkeeping buds group. Everyone in our group makes attending our monthly meeting a top priority for the camaraderie, support and knowledge provided.
Lindi Hannigan, CPA, MBA - Cypress Financial Services, Inc.
Belonging to a networking group which includes extraordinarily talented consultants, who welcomingly and willing share their expertise, successes, and failures, has become invaluable.
Being a part of the Bookkeeping Buds has given me a foundation needed to confidently take on bigger engagements, expand my staffing, and venture into public speaking.
With Cindy and Kay’s enthusiasm and quest to instill goal setting and regularly follow-up on accomplishments, I have achieved successes never imagined.
