6 Stages To Do Bookkeeping Like A Pro (Master User Learning Journey)Jun 30, 2022
Hi business owners! Welcome back to another blog post of Nuts Accounting.
Today’s topic is all about Master User Learning Journey, which is the six stages to do bookkeeping like a pro for business owners and non-accountants.
To be honest, I’ve been debating with myself whether I should share today’s post with you or not. Right now I only teach this in my paid program, Master User Academy. But I know that this will be very beneficial to you especially during your early stages of learning bookkeeping especially if you do not have a mentor to guide you. So I decided to share this with you so that we can help more business owners. If you don’t have a mentor to teach you bookkeeping yet, can I be your mentor? I would love to be your mentor and I feel so honoured to play a part in your bookkeeping learning journey! ❤️ (Click here to check out our Master User Academy program)
I want you to learn this before you decide whether you truly want to learn bookkeeping or not and I think you need to know what you are signing up for. You need to know what you are going to learn and what you are going to do before you join our Master User Academy program so that you will be mentally prepared and ready to start doing bookkeeping even on your first day of joining us.
Now let’s start the lesson.
Whenever I’m driving to a new destination that I’m not familiar with, I will always set up my GPS navigation (Waze App) and get the route. Next, all I need to do is follow the route. As long as I follow the route, I know for sure that I’ll arrive at my destination.
So consider Master User Learning Journey as your route to your DIY bookkeeping success.
This is your roadmap that lays out your whole learning journey from not knowing how to do bookkeeping at all to becoming an expert DIY bookkeeper that completes your accounts monthly and uses your financial reports to grow your business faster.
So all you need to do is follow the Master User Learning Journey (your route) and you will arrive at your destination of becoming a successful DIY bookkeeper for your business.
I designed Master User Learning Journey for business owners who wanted to do their own bookkeeping but knows nothing at all about accounting. There are six stages in Master User Learning Journey.
In the beginning, you will start with the basic entry level tasks and once you have completed a stage, new bookkeeping tasks will be gradually added so that you only focus on the next best step. It’s designed to move you along your bookkeeping learning journey one step at a time so that you will not feel overwhelmed by the rest of the things that you don’t need to do right now.
Stage 1: New User
You will start your Master User Learning Journey at Stage 1 as a “New User”. You have just signed up for a new account with Xero Accounting (or your chosen Cloud Accounting System) so that you can do bookkeeping. You may or may not know how to do bookkeeping or how to use Xero Accounting (or your chosen Cloud Accounting System). You’re ready to get started in bookkeeping but you don’t know where to start. All you know is you love the features in Xero Accounting (or your chosen Cloud Accounting System) and believe that you can do bookkeeping easily by using Xero Accounting (or your chosen Cloud Accounting System). This stage is all about getting your Xero Accounting (or your chosen Cloud Accounting System) set up correctly so that it is ready for your bookkeeping transactions.
