Welcome to The Better Bookkeeper!


New to bookkeeping or just need a refresher? You have come to the right place. The Better Bookkeeper wants to get you up to speed so you can provide proper bookkeeping services to small businesses.

Why is bookkeeping so important?

Poor bookkeeping can ruin a business. When transactions are not properly categorized then financial statements will not be accurate. This leads to poor business decisions made by management because they don’t have the correct information. We can all agree that providing accurate data so that proper financials can be prepared is an essential service of bookkeepers. Whether you are employed as a bookkeeper or you are working with clients as an independent bookkeeper, our podcast and online courses can help you expand your knowledge and add value to the service you provide. Small business owners who do their own bookkeeping can find plenty of valuable information, too!

What makes The Better Bookkeeper so special?

Our podcast and online courses are hosted by Patrick Donovan, owner of Cape May Counting House, a virtual bookkeeping firm. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and shares his knowledge with you. The goal is to help you “be knowledgeable, be marketable” as a bookkeeping professional.
