One day back in 2017 I was looking through some Facebook posts on the Bookkeeper Launch private group and ran into a post from Andrea VonHovel asking what she could do to help spread the word about the course. I reached out to her asking if she was willing to write up a guest post talking about Bookkeeper Launch and her experiences and thoughts about it. Without hesitation she agreed, and wrote the following:
Andrea VonHovel Bookkeeper Launch Testimonial
I was one of those people who did everything I was told I should do to be successful in life. I went to college, got a good job, got married, and bought a house. So I didn’t understand why I couldn’t bring myself to get out of bed for work in the mornings.
I did everything I was told to do, I was supposed to be happy. At first, I thought it was because I missed my children, so I stopped working and my husband took a traveling position to make up the income. It helped, but then my kids and I missed my husband.
So for about three years my husband and I searched for a way that we could work together and provide a good life for our two young girls. After making lots of wrong choices and getting taken by several hustlers promising they would teach us how to “have it all!”, we pretty much threw in the towel.
Along Came Bookkeeper Launch
Then my husband forwarded me a link to Bookkeeper Launch. I was skeptical but I thought it might be worth a shot since I was very familiar with business and bookkeeping. So I signed up for the three free videos. I watched them all and then I saw the price tag.
My red flags went up and I decided to do some homework. I dug into every detail I could find on Ben Robinson and his business past. I couldn’t find anything that seemed out of place so I researched bookkeeping businesses and it all looked like what Ben said in the videos, was indeed true.
But he was asking for a lot of money and I needed to make sure it was the right decision. There were lots of people out there who make promises and deliver underwhelming results.
After some discussion with my husband and asking myself the single most important question, “Is this really what I want to be doing in 20 years?” I decided that it was, and if nothing else, the marketing advice would save me the cash it would take to learn things the hard way.
What She Found Once Inside The Course
With that, the 30-day refund policy, and the lifetime access, I decided to give it a shot. From the moment I logged in, I was impressed. Everything was well organized, easy to navigate, and all the promised content was there plus some other pleasant surprises.
I started the curriculum that night, I wanted to get threw as much as I could in 30 days, just in case I wanted that refund. It didn’t take very long to see that I was getting exactly what Ben promised I would. The individual videos were relatively short and the material was very easy to digest.
The content was very in-depth and well-thought-out. It was organized in a way that made sense and easy to follow. Before I even finished the 4th module (week 2) I had a business entity legally formed. The information in these modules was so much more than “how-to” videos.
For me, the bookkeeping was just a refresher, but he helped me understand how to communicate it in very easy terms.
The marketing material was well-structured and for once, I felt like I had found someone who actually meant it when they said they wanted me to be successful.
The further into the content I dove, the more I began to realize that Bookkeeper Launch was not just another guy who was over-promising and couldn’t deliver. This content was realistic and easy to implement but of course, there were obstacles along the way.
For instance, in my 3rd week, I had gotten my plan together. It was a very meticulous but leisurely launch schedule for my business and while playing around with some training one day, I accidentally attracted the attention of someone who was eager to get to know me and my business.
The problem was, I hadn’t gotten through the training completely yet. I wasn’t even done with my website.
The Amazing Support
So I turned to the BBL Facebook community. I let them know what was happening and was absolutely overwhelmed by the supportive response. My notifications were flooded with people who all wanted to help me get over the hurdle and onto the other side successfully. It was absolutely shocking.
I was used to people who would pretend to be supportive but when it came down to it they were only looking out for their own interests. Such is the business world that I came from, but this was anything but that.
By the time I had my meeting, I had launched a peer-reviewed website, printed business cards with a logo, and had a real business phone line set up. I was ready for their questions and confident that I was prepared.
All thanks to the support of my peers in this group, a lot of running around, and a couple of late nights. This community endeared me to BBL and everything it stood for.
Where Am I Now?
I now have a professional bookkeeping business, that I can run from anywhere I need to and help impact the lives of the business owners I serve.
At the end of the day, the reason I wanted to start a bookkeeping business was to make a difference in the lives of people like myself who went out on their own for a reason. I want to help them achieve their vision and in doing so, I get to achieve mine. My husband working by my side and our kids with two present parents.
Andrea’s Final Thoughts
I truly believe that Ben means it when he says he wanted to help people be successful at this. He shows his genuine care for his students in every aspect of this education.
The curriculum is wonderful but what surprised me most was his level of involvement with his students on a personal level. He is in the Facebook group almost daily, making himself available to his students and giving, as well as, encouraging feedback.
He listens. I watch him continuously strive to find ways of making Bookkeeper Business Launch better and keep his students focused and motivated.
That is why I didn’t want a refund. I could have taken it, my business was up and running, I had enough information to make it work, but as he mentioned in the free videos.
Being an entrepreneur is lonely and the fact that I have a place to go when I need help and I can get it quickly, from people who do it with joy and no expectations for their own gain; the fact that I see the people who work behind the scenes always making this product better; and the fact that it gave me everything it promised and more; that is why I love this program.
Bookkeeper Launch is not just a video module compilation of how-to videos. It is a continuously evolving learning platform that lets you stay relevant in your skills as a bookkeeper.
It helps you find better ways to serve and reach your clients, but most importantly; it is a community of great people who support each other unconditionally and teach each other what it truly means to have the mindset of an entrepreneur.
