Time-Saving Tools and Systems for Your Consulting Business

Taught live on June 6, 2023 | Presented by Mandy Pearce and joined by Anne Schmidt

Learn More

Description:

Do you struggle to find the perfect balance between the administrative portion of your business and service delivery? Would you like to know the tools and systems I used to grow my part-time side hustle to a half-a-million-dollar company? Most consultants start their businesses because they want to make money doing something they love or are good at. It doesn’t take long to realize that you can be the best educator, coach, or consultant in the world, but if you can’t get in front of and stay in front of prospective clients, your business won’t be profitable.

Marketing your business and managing clients is a full-time job on its own. If you are ready to simplify your business model so you can maximize your time and revenue, this session is for you.

They say, “imitation is the best form of flattery.” This session is a direct response to regular inquiries from consultants asking “how do you do it?”

It isn’t designed to tell you what you should do or to pitch platforms or products. I’m simply going to share the tools and systems we’ve used to make online transactions easier, enhance client experiences, track data, reduce administrative time, and more.  Over the past two decades, I’ve learned so much the hard way. My passion is sharing what I’ve learned with other consultants to help them get to the success they want quicker.

My amazing web developer has agreed to join me for the one-time event to answer all the tech questions I can’t!  If you want to know more about email systems, CRMs, web hosting tools and plugins, accessory systems that work with multiple platforms (like Zapier), online stores, online payments, data tracking, funnels, and more, this is the webinar for you! 

We we’ll cover:

  • Systems Funding For Good has and does use and why
  • Questions to consider when working with an email/CRM platform
  • Web hosting needs and options
  • Plugins that make your life easier
  • Ways to reduce your administrative time through systems and tools

Bookkeeping and Accounting Basics:
What Every Small Business Owner Should Know

Taught live on June 21, 2023 | Presented by Mandy Pearce and Dawn Brady

Learn More

Description:

Do you find yourself asking questions about accounting, business structure, what’s a write-off and what’s not, and how to save the most money as a business owner? Would you like to know the answer to these questions and more, so you can better grasp how to run your business effectively, when it’s time to outsource your accounting, and what you are responsible for when it comes to reporting financials?

Most consultants have a special skill and want to start a business so they can take a deep dive into their unique brilliance AND make money without working for someone else, or on someone else’s schedule. But, not everyone knows the ins and outs of when to be on payroll, how much they should pay themselves, what quarterly taxes are, etc.

Working with clients, planting seeds for future work, keeping projects moving forward, and planning next steps in your business is a full-time job. If you are ready to learn what you need to know about accounting for your business, and some nifty tips and tricks to save you a little money too, this session is for you.

My amazing bookkeeper/accountant has agreed to join me for the one-time event to answer all our accounting/bookkeeping questions!
 

We we’ll cover:

  • Questions to consider when determining if you should be on payroll.
  • Parameters for determining how much you should pay yourself, if you ARE on payroll.
  • What are quarterly taxes and how do you know if you need to pay them, and how to calculate how much to pay quarterly.
  • What are annual reports and who files them.
  • What questions to ask when exploring hiring an accountant/bookkeeper.
  • How much to budget for accounting/bookkeeping services.
  • 6 deductions small business owners should be aware of, and how to document them
  • Pros and cons of hiring vs contracting
  • What types of things should you ask for/expect an accountant/bookkeeper to do, and how often.
  • What are the pros/cons to consider about various business structures.

Description:

Most of us weren’t trained to be entrepreneurs. We have a skill and decide to go at it on our own. Along the way, we build a toolkit of skills along with a ton of scars.

The ways in which we can sabotage ourselves as we figure out how to navigate this new world are vast. Beth Brodovsky has run Iris Creative, a brand strategy, marketing, and design firm serving nonprofits for 26 years. Her business has survived the pandemic, the 2009 economic crisis, the 2000 tech bust, raising two kids, and ending one marriage.

Mandy Pearce, founder of Funding For Good, will join Beth in this 90-minute session to share her personal experiences that led her from living bill-to-bill to a six-figure business that provides her family with freedom and security to live the life of their dreams.

Join us for this lively and honest session about the tough lessons we learned and how we used them to grow our successful businesses.

What we’ll cover:

  • Perspective on thoughts and actions that hinder personal and professional growth
  • Ways to appreciate where you are even when you are not where you want to be
  • Actions and mindset shifts that can take you from struggle to success in your business
  • Top mistakes we made, so you don’t have to
