Bookkeeping, or accounting, is the professional practice of recording the transactions of money and assets by a business.
Bookkeeping education is necessary to maintain a business, though this practice can be outsourced to a bookkeeper or accounting firm. Because it is often outsourced, bookkeeping is a great career option for women and men seeking to work from home, on their own schedule. Courses are available to help you learn small business bookkeeping at home instead of spending years in college learning corporation and large business bookkeeping. Many available courses are available over the Internet and offer certificates that can boost your credibility in offering your bookkeeping services.
