Study Success for Life Goals

Knowledge of software and workplace procedures are a good base to have when applying for jobs but they don’t help you do a great job when working with other employees, contractors, clients and suppliers.

To demonstrate your experience in working with people these skills are very important:

  • Listening and Communications Skills
  • Organising Meetings
  • Time Management Skills
  • Customer Service
  • Working With Difficult People
  • Working as Part of a Team
  • Setting and Achieving Goals

Some of these tasks are very hard to master if you are not used to it or are working in a job you don’t like. This new training program includes videos and a downloadable book that is yours to keep.

Who are Our Mentors & Tutors?

Career Academy Course Program Workbook Cover Page Image

Our mentors are people who have decided that they want to find work for themselves, on their own terms, and have gone on to create successful businesses, or to work successfully as well-paid contractors. In this way, they have already done the work and are ready to help you.

They know it can be difficult to know where to start, and that you don’t know what you don’t know — they’ve done the hard yards already and are there to give you a helping hand. One that isn’t just theoretical, either, but practical and genuinely helpful.

If you are keen to explore opportunities for starting your own business and invoicing your own clients for the work you do, then explore the StartUp Academy options.

The career pathway from employee to independent bookkeeping business owner involves a change in how you manage your time and the work that you do.

Employees are often directed, whereas independent bookkeepers must be self-motivated and are required to complete a variety of different tasks, manage their time well and provide their clients with evidence of the work they’ve done. To run your own bookkeeping business is to become a trusted adviser to your clients.
