bookkeeper in your back pocket day

have me on call for a day of support and guidance while you do your books

Feeling overwhelmed when it comes to doing your books?

Wish you could have an accountant on-call while you’re working your way through it? 

Know that if you had answers to your questions as you worked through your books, you’d make progress and finally get.it.done?!

Then bookkeeper in your pocket is for you!

Maybe you’ve downloaded a Paper + Spark spreadsheet but you STILL procrastinate actually entering your transactions each month and you’ve fallen behind.

Maybe you feel a little overwhelmed when you sit down to get started. The backlog of work just seems to get bigger and bigger each month!

You know you need to get this done (eventually) but you’re not sure how. Can you afford to just outsource this stuff? Maybe your partner (or your cousin’s brother’s girlfriend who is an accountant?) will sit down and walk through it all with you?

You KNOW you need support to catch up on your numbers and put an end to your anxiety. But you still haven’t taken action.

IT WOULD BE SO GREAT IF YOU COULD…​

  • Have a direct line to a spreadsheet & bookkeeping expert who truly understands e-commerce reporting and knows where to find all the right reports from your sales platforms you need.
  • Ask questions AS YOU GO to someone who understands the unique challenges and types of transactions you’re dealing with as an online seller.
  • Dive deep into catching up on your books for one big day of work with a bookkeeper ON CALL to support you while you work (so you don’t get hung up on a problem and then call it quits early!).
  • NOT have to commit to sitting in front of your computer sharing a screen or being on a video call all day, but come and go (and take a mental break!) as you please.
  • Feel confident that you’re actually doing your books & recording your transactions correctly!

Well, I have some good news for you, friend!

That’s exactly what you sign up for when you book a day of bookkeeper in your pocket!

How does bookkeeper in your pocket day work?

Bookkeeper in your pocket signs you up for 8 consecutive hours of Voxer access with yours truly (Janet LeBlanc, CPA and the creator of Paper + Spark spreadsheets).

Voxer is a free walkie-talkie app that allows us to exchange voice & text messages.

During our day together, we’ll be in touch over Voxer to get your books done. You’ll be doing the work getting caught up, and you’ll essentially have me on call to answer any questions that pop up as you go.

Here’s how our day together works:

1. You choose a date for your bookkeeper in your pocket day.

The BEST part of connecting over Voxer is you don’t need to clear your whole day for this or hire a babysitter! A Day of Voxer is kid, family, and pet-friendly. You’ll be sending me voice messages and texts as you can. So even if you’re self-quarantining at home with your entire clan in last week’s pajamas, you’re good! Just make sure you choose a day when you have the time & mental space to work on your books.

 2. We get you set up on Voxer.

If you don’t have a Voxer account, you’ll create one – it’s free.

We’ll add each other on Voxer, and you can send me a message in advance to say hello!

3. When your Bookkeeper in Your Pocket day starts, you’ll have access to me for a consecutive 8 hour period.

When you choose your day, you’ll have a time range to choose from so the 8 hours of our time together work best during your “work time”. You can choose an 8 hour period between 9am – 7pm CST. 

Don’t worry – this isn’t an 8-hour long chat, and you’re NOT expected or supposed to be sitting by your phone all day waiting for replies.

We’ll be exchanging messages throughout the day as you need me. The best part about having a day of Voxer access is that you get quick answers to your questions and can keep working without getting stuck.

That’s what makes Bookkeeper in Your Pocket so effective!

FAQs

You’ll have a 10 hour time frame (from 9am to 7pm CST) from which to select your 8 hours of Voxer access. If you’re not able to work within that time frame, send me a message before purchasing and let me know your situation!

Don’t worry! Send me a message using the chat box in the right-hand corner of this page or email me at [email protected] and we can figure something out.

This day is reserved for helping you get your books done (hopefully even completed!). I anticipate assisting you with questions/issues like:

  • Where can I find the right report in Etsy/Square/Paypal/etc.?
  • Why does my Etsy CSV not match my Etsy bill?
  • This year I bought a _____ for my business. What kind of expense is that?
  • Where should I enter this on my spreadsheet?
  • Is ______ considered a business expense?
  • Here’s this receipt that I’m really confused about. How do I break this up & enter this?
  • I’ve got a done of glitter in my inventory – how do I measure that?
  • I think I broke a formula on my spreadsheet.
  • My cost of goods sold is showing up as negative, what does that mean? 

Those are just a handful of examples! My goal is to help you get things addressed correctly and promptly so you can keep moving.

This day is NOT intended to be tax advice. We can definitely talk about your books in relation to your business taxes, but this will not constitute a CPA – client relationship, and as such I will not walk you through completing your tax return and can only provide general tax education.

Life happens and I get it. If you have a scheduling conflict, I ask that you kindly reschedule prior to 48 hours in advance of your scheduled time. Future availability is not guaranteed.

If you need to cancel without rescheduling, I’ll be happy to refund you 75% of the amount you paid. The remaining amount is considered a cancellation fee.

Pick a day during which you can dedicate some time to working on your books. The more time you have, the more progress you’ll make and the better use you’ll get from our time together.

That being said, we’ll be exchanging messages at a slow but steady pace (that YOU will dictate) throughout the day. 

Voxer is a voice & text messaging app. We won’t see each other, so you can show up however you want. If you are working with kids or pets around, that’s fine too. This is flexible and very REAL LIFE friendly and that’s why I love it!

I will make myself available during the 8 hours you choose. In general, you can anticipate a response time to your message within 5-45 minutes. I will be living daily life (and in quarantine with kids right now!) so at times I may be popping in and out. But it’s my goal to keep responses speedy so you can keep progressing!

Yes, it is a free app for your smartphone or desktop. There is a paid version of the app if you want forever access to your recordings and our convo. Otherwise the recordings expire after 30 days.

If you want more time after our day together, I can share a discounted rate to book a second day of Bookkeeper in Your Pocket. (Keep in mind the beta testing special price likely will not apply based on availability.)

Voxer is a voice & text messaging app, but you can still send me screenshots or even email over your file to take a look at if needed during our day together. 

Bookkeeper in a Day is specifically designed only for Paper + Spark spreadsheet users. You can check out my spreadsheets here.

I cannot provide the same level of service & assistance if you use something like Quickbooks, Wave, GoDaddy, etc.
