Today I have an interview with Ben, the creator of Bookkeeper Business Launch. Ben’s business has been featured on Forbes, The Huffington Post, The Penny Hoarder, and many more.
Becoming a bookkeeper can be a great side hustle to supplement your income or even become a full-time job.
Luckily, you don’t need prior experience to become a bookkeeper, which Ben will talk all about below.
Since 2001, Ben has helped over 2,000 people start their own bookkeeping business. This work from home career lets you determine how much you make, who you work with, when you work, and obviously, where you work.
And since the average bookkeeper can expect to make $62 per hour or $40,000 per year, this is a fantastic option for those of you that rather work from home and set your own hours.

Though you might think that Paris is crazy expensive and you can’t afford it, you definitely can if you do it right.
There’s no point in staying in a super fancy hotel room since you’ll rarely be in your room (unless this is a trip where you want to splurge – then you’re probably reading the wrong article for your trip).
Paris has a ton of free stuff to do. The museums (even the Louvre) offer several free days throughout the year. Paris is also known for hosting many free concerts, and many of the historical monuments cost nothing at all to visit.
