Typically you start out selling your own stuff - it's just a hobby. It's so fun!

Then you start buying stuff to flip. And you find an amazing deal and make an incredible profit. Awesome!

And you keep doing it over and over and over and eventually even start buying wholesale and become an online boutique.

Then boom! Your hobby is now a full fledged business!


Yes, your activities are now a business. And now you need to start treating your transactions like they're part of a business.

You need to start ACCOUNTING for them. And then you need to start paying TAXES!


I know you didn't get into resale or having a boutique to know anything about accounting or taxes. I totally get it.

But, just think - you are NOW an ENTREPRENEUR!!!

Doesn't that feel Ah-may-zing?!?

Some responsibility comes with the territory.

For one, you have to treat your activities like a business and that means keeping good books!

Then I'll teach you how to read your financial statements, show you what all those numbers mean. Then give you the deets on income taxes and sales taxes.

Before I heard Kreithchele speak at one of her live classes on this topic, I thought that I didn't need to worry about accounting like a business because Poshmark is my side hustle. After she started talking about tax deductions and write-offs, I realized that I should have started caring a lot sooner. Kreithchele's knowledge will save me more than the price of this course when I file my taxes for 2017!

At Poshfest 2016 one of the main sessions I was looking forward to was one with Accounting for Small Businesses presented by Kreithchele. It was a big eye opener for me to hear about all the things that are involved with owning a small business and very overwhelming. Thankfully, later on I had the opportunity to be at another one of her live classes and really enjoyed how she explained accounting in a way that a scientist like me could understand. She answered a lot of the questions I had about the proper way to set up and run a small business and I am very grateful for her advice and knowledge. Looking forward to learning more from her.

I had the opportunity to attend one of Kreithchele's live classes on this topic. I love how easy she made everything for me to understand. She helped me understand the pro and cons of setting up a business as a sole proprietorship, LLC, and S-Corp and which entity would be best for my particular situation. She also thoroughly went through accounting principles that I need to understand, but she also let me know that I can keep my own books without having to have an accounting or advanced degree. She's the first person to successfully explain cash vs accrual basis accounting to me and why I would choose one over the other. I wholeheartedly recommend her class and this online course so that you can get serious about your books and business and take your business to the next level.

I had the opportunity to attend a lecture by Kreithchele in October 2016 at PoshFest about making your online selling, your own business. When I started selling online it was a hobby and a chance to indulge in my love of fashion. My path crossed again with Kreithchele at a retreat this past April 2017. Her presentation was the outline for her current online business course and an intro into the first class. Hearing her speak the second time, and seeing her passion for what she does, her sharing her success with us, and her wanting others to succeed, was such an inspiration. Never did I imagine I could own my own business and that a lucrative opportunity was in my future. I'm currently enrolled in her online class and excited to see where my future selling takes me. Thank you Kreithchele for your help and professionalism.

Accounting seems like a daunting task, and taxes are scary. But they don't have to be. Kreithchele's online course gave me a sense of understanding, thus a peace of mine, about accounting for my business. The course is straightforward and easy to follow. Kreithchele makes CPA knowledge available to us average Joes and challenges us to perceive our businesses in a more professional light.
