Do any of these sounds like you?

  • As a real estate investor who manages vacation rentals, you likely spend over 40 hours a week managing properties and keeping track of all your bookkeeping, but your bottom line is always in the red.
  • You are a vacation property manager who works 10+ hours a day promoting your business AND managing your money, owners, and guests, but you still only get paid a flat fee for all the time you spend at your office.
  • You are a QuickBooks bookkeeper or consultant, CPA, Accountant who works over 50 hours researching and testing how to use QuickBooks for your vacation rental clients, yet you only get paid for the time you work on clients’ files.
If you are nodding your head to any of the above scenarios, I am here to tell you that there IS a better and smarter way to learn.

I am offering you a way to make the best use of your time and reduce your frustration. There are specifics steps you can take to use, enter, and view your data to attract more clients with less time and little or no budget. It’s an easy, simple, and the MOST PROFITABLE way to learn how to use QuickBooks effectively for vacation rentals.

Here’s my personal story…

Years ago, when I began to teach QuickBooks, I was nervous; however, my clients gave me a vote of confidence. Everyone I worked with told me I had to share my system and workflow with their friends and competitors. Since then, I have spent hundreds of hours perfecting my program for management and accounting, and in that time I created a step-by-step system for each segment of the real estate industry. As an accountant and Advanced QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor who has been in the business for 20 years, I kept finding better and better ways to help my real estate clients eliminate errors and produce accurate reports that could be used on a day-to-day basis.

And that is what I love the most about my business!

Vacation Rentals Sites
Do you utilize online reservation software that is weak in managing the financial side of property management, including work order management, maintenance, and repair costs tracking, commission payments, owner revenue statement generation, and integration into QuickBooks?

I will teach you how to implement processes where you will only enter a transaction one time and in only one system, capturing your entries in reports with one click.

Have you used QuickBooks for the past few years only to capture all of your banking and credit card transactions, categorize them for tax purposes, and pass them along to your accountant for tax prep?

That is what many people use it for, but none of them are using QuickBooks to its full potential. You can actually use QuickBooks to create a “set of books” to which you can refer back for important information and reports!

We will help you to come up with a plan that will help you use QuickBooks to run your vacation rental business and implement the “best practices” all in one place.

My goal is to teach you:

  • Take the mystery out of QuickBooks
  • Know which accounts to use and why
  • Create counter-intuitive ideas that work
  • Learn to use practical, effective shortcuts
  • Follow a crystal clear map
  • Create over 100+ crucial
