Mindset is everything when it comes down to starting a bookkeeping business from home. Know that there are probably going to be times when you doubt the Bookkeeper Launch program.
You are going to think this isn’t going to work for you because you are not smart enough, that you are too late in the game or nobody will hire you are their bookkeeper because you have no experience (in case you were wondering all of these are absolutely false). Our minds fill our heads with self-defeating thoughts on a constant basis.
We as humans naturally try to justify why not to do something instead of why to do something. This is especially true when it comes to starting a virtual bookkeeping business. After all, it’s new, it’s scary, and probably a little intimidating.
What if you fail? What if it’s all a big scam? What if my family finds out what I am doing? Will they look down on me and criticize me?
As a society, 99% of us have been taught to go to college, get our degree, and land a good J-O-B. It’s nobody’s fault because when you think about it, even 10 years ago starting something like a virtual bookkeeping business wasn’t even really possible. Our parents never had the opportunities that are available today.
Most people are content with working for someone else and that’s fine but you’re are reading this right now it’s because you’re different! You are looking (or considering) to create your own income instead of working for someone else. You want more free time to spend with your family or want the freedom to travel more.
Whatever the case may be, know that it’s entirely possible! If you go into this with the mentality that nothing is going to stop you, then guess what, nothing is going to stop you! That is a promise!
Any Roadblock Can Be Overcome
What other doubts pop into those minds of ours? There could be a few different legit obstacles that you are facing. It may be the cost of the program. If this is what’s holding you back then I hope you are taking the steps necessary to save up or you can always sign up for my newsletter so that I can let you know about the next sale that takes place.
Did you know that you can pay for the Bookkeeper Launch program over the course of 12 months? Did you know that landing that first client will pay for the course and all other expenses? Where there is a will, there’s a way!
Another reason may be that you have no previous bookkeeping experience. The great thing about the Bookkeeper Launch program is that it is designed with the complete newbie in mind. In fact, Ben talks about how if you do already have some experience that you will probably have to unlearn some things.
To take this a step further, if you have questions and/or feel stuck, this is where the private group comes into play. Know that there are thousands of students just like you that are more than willing to help you along your journey to becoming your own boss.
Have I nailed it yet? If not, I would guess that it may be because you’re not sure if YOU can make it work. What do I mean by this?
You understand that it’s by no means a scam. You get the fact that Ben says that anyone can do this as long as you have the drive to succeed and are able to push yourself to do the things that are necessary to do. You have seen or read to proof throughout this site, yet you are still unsure.
You somehow think that even though others have taken the course and ran with it that YOU may not be able to achieve the same results.
Your Mindset Is Everything
The honest truth is, the only thing that is going to hold you back is you. The most powerful tool that you have at your disposal is your mindset.
The course works, plain and simple!
You have to tell yourself that nothing is going to get in your way. You have to be able to push back those thoughts of self-doubt that WILL creep in. Expect it and then overcome and push through it!
If you are a regular reader, then you have read how it is possible for you to have your 1st client secured even before you are finished with the course. What was your reaction to that? Was it, “that’s awesome” or was it “yeah right”?
I can promise you this, if you are one of those people that responded with “that’s awesome” then you are in a good spot mentally. You believe in yourself and the Bookkeeper Launch program and are willing to take what is given to you and run with it.
If you are the “yeah right” person, then all I can say is that there are a lot of students that did get that 1st client right away. There is verifiable proof that it can and does happen! Does this mean that it will happen for you before you are done going through the course?
Nope! But, if you work hard to do what is needed to do to get your business off the ground… it will happen! Whether it’s 3 months or 6 months… it will happen!
Know That There Will Be Roadblocks
No matter what kind of business you start there are going to be roadblocks. You will be frustrated at times. You may feel lost and occasionally you may feel like giving up.
It is how you are able to push through these moments that will determine whether your not you are going to have a successful bookkeeping business or not.
Nothing in life worthwhile comes easy. Have you ever heard the saying, “if it were easy everyone would do it”? If having your own business was easy there would be 100 million bookkeepers and there wouldn’t be enough clients to go around.
So be thankful that this is a challenge. The truth is, a majority of people will not choose this path because of the challenges that lie ahead for them.
You need to be the exception and believe that you will have a thriving bookkeeping business. If you truly believe that this will happen for you then guess what… it will!
Know Your “Why”
Why do you want your own bookkeeping business? Is it to spend more time with your family? Is it to become your own boss? Is it to create a secure financial future for yourself?
One of the most important things that you will want to do is to know your “why”. This is going to give you the drive to get over any obstacle that gets in your way.
It may be one thing or it may be twenty but figure it out! When you figure out your “why” write it down and keep it where you can see it! There is something magical about putting things down on paper. This makes it real and reinforces what you are doing, to begin with.
Post your “why” on your laptop so that you see it when you open it up. Post it on the bathroom mirror so that you see it when you brush your teeth in the morning. Post it on the dashboard of your car to remind yourself that you don’t have to make that commute to work every morning.
Our brains simply need to be retrained, so to speak. Eventually, you are going to start believing in yourself and realize that your “why” is within your hands’ reach and that is a powerful motivator!
They Are No Different Than You
