YOU’RE NOT ALONE IN BEING CONFUSED ABOUT ALL THIS “BOOKKEEPING STUFF”

Starting or growing a handmade business is totally overwhelming!

Especially if you’ve never had a business before!

And if you’re like most of the handmade business owners I work with – you started this business because you wanted to share your love of yarn with the world …….. not spend weeks (or months) trying to figure out the bookkeeping piece!

But, finding information about HOW to do the bookkeeping for a handmade, creative, or craft business is so overwhelming!

It’s SO easy to become totally lost and confused. There’s so much bookkeeping information out there on the internet – but little of it has anything to do with bookkeeping for a handmade business! Even though you’ve literally spent HOURS sliding down that rabbit hole of searching on Google and in Facebook groups.

ABOUT NANCY SMYTH, THE YARNYBOOKKEEPER©

I’m passionate about helping you get your handmade business bookkeeping under control!

Hi!!!! I’m Nancy – part-maker, part-software developer, part-career bookkeeper, and full-blown bookkeeping teacher/coach behind the YarnyBookkeeper© blog. Where I combine my own love of yarn and 30+ years of experience as a bookkeeper to help other fiber lovers develop and understand the financial side of their business – so they know if their business is profitable or not.

When I’m not spending my time crunching numbers, I spend my days knitting, crocheting, gardening or traveling around in our RV.

I’m an introvert who loves helping people, a teacher, and a problem-solver who loves numbers.

I’m grateful for the opportunity these skills have provided me to create an amazing life in the beautiful, remote corner of Northeast Vermont with my husband, Ben, our grown children, our grandchildren, and our two fur-babies Max (a boxer) and Marvin (a cat).

You’ve got questions? We have answers!

Maybe you’re wondering about this stuff too…….

Is the Handmade Business Bookkeeping Academy right for me?

The Handmade Business Bookkeeping Academy (HBBA) is meant for both new and long-time handmade, creative, and craft business owners, who are product sellers and designers.

If you’re motivated to get your bookkeeping under control and want step-by-step processes for building and using a complete bookkeeping system to ensure you have a profitable business and stellar financial information – then HBBA is for you.

How long will I have access to the Academy content?

All HBBA students will receive access to ALL of the program materials, even new content, for the lifetime of the program – lifetime access!

I own a lifetime license to the ThriveCart Learn platform where the Academy is hosted, so even if I were to disappear tomorrow, you could still access EVERYTHING in the Academy for as long as the ThriveCart Lean platform is operational.

This means that you can watch videos, print the workbooks, access the modules and lessons whenever you want.

Plus, you’ll have access to a private non-Facebook group (away from the drama and distractions) for community support, Q & A sessions, Lives, and office-hours with Nancy.

Why is this an Annual or Recurring Membership?

Growing a profitable business takes time.  As your business grows, your bookkeeping needs change.

By making this an annual/recurring membership (with either an annual or monthly payment plan), you’re being asked to make a commitment to yourself and your business to get your bookkeeping under control as you move from hobby-business or struggling business into the financially stable, profitable business you dream of having.

In reality, I’d be doing you a disservice if I made it easy for you to quit whenever something got too hard.  

Will you be adding more material/content to the Academy?

New material will be added to the Academy as it is created.

Keep in mind, content such as this – with step-by-step guided modules and lessons – takes time to create.

For 2023, I’m planning on producing an entire module with multiple lessons on how to create a bookkeeping system using spreadsheets that provides you with the same type of information that bookkeeping software would.

But I have absolutely NO bookkeeping experience and really hate numbers. Is this going to be a problem?

Absolutely no problem at all.  None of us are born with a numbers or math gene.

But let me ask you this …. you can learn, right?  And, if you’re willing to learn – I can teach you!  

I’ve been a career bookkeeper for 30+ years – which means I know how to deal with the day-to-day bookkeeping transactions involved in starting and running a business.  During that time I’ve worked with and taught thousands of business owners and their bookkeepers how to handle their bookkeeping tasks.

Do you have a refund policy? If so what is it?

There is a 14-day refund/cancellation policy.

If you can show me the work you’ve done in 14-days from gaining access to the Academy and can honestly say that none of this is important to you – I’ll gladly refund your money and cancel your membership.

But remember, you have to show me what you’ve accomplished in those 14 days. NO WORK = NO REFUND.

I have more questions. How can I ask them?

Feel free to pop me an email and hello@yarnybookkeeper.com with your questions.

It might take me a day or two to respond, but I will answer your questions personally.

ARE YOU READY?

What are you waiting for?

I’m holding out my hand, waiting for you to grab it, if you’re ready to stop playing at being a hobby-business and start having a real “grown-up” handmade business where you achieve everything you want. Including making sure your business is making a profit so you can pay yourself!
