Hi, I’m Nicole Barham!
It’s so easy to get overwhelmed when you think about your business finances. At least, that’s how I felt for years.
I was scared to look at my money. So I never really knew where I stood. I sort of knew my income, but my expenses were all over the place. And because I never paid attention to any of it, I wasn’t prepared for just how bad it all was...
Even with my background in accounting!
In the end, I had to declare bankruptcy with 6 figures in debt. If I had looked at my numbers a year or two before, I could have saved a lot of heartache and stress for me and my family.
I knew I didn't want to go through that again.
So I learned how to create simple systems to start tracking my own finances. That work eventually led to me creating 5 Minute Bookkeeper®.
I've been featured on Good Morning America and The Breakfast Club and in TIME.com, Black Enterprise and Essence.com to name a few.
Check out some of the most frequently asked questions below:
If you watch my demo video at the very top of this page, you’ll see just how simple it is.There’s no adding, subtracting, formulas, or sorcery involved. The spreadsheet does it all for you (oh wait...maybe that’s sorcery). You can see everything clear and clean all on one page.And if you’re nervous about learning it? Rest assured - you can learn the entire system during a commercial break from Stranger Things (you’re welcome!).
Gosh NO! When you purchase 5 Minute Bookkeeper you get access to many resources, including a 5-minute video that shows you how to quickly get all your numbers from your bank or credit card account into the spreadsheet in a fraction of the time you would take for you to do it on your own.
I hear you. But this work won’t happen on its own. If you can’t spend 5 minutes a day on this, you might be interested in my done-with-you or done-for-you services. You can schedule a time to chat about it HERE.
Most of those bookkeeping platforms are designed for a more complex business model. For someone who is a sole proprietor like you who just needs a simple way to report business finances, these platforms are complex to navigate and require you to have bookkeeping/accounting training. They also take hours (or days) to learn, only to discover most of it doesn’t apply to you. More often than not, I see people abandon their finances altogether out of sheer frustration, and I hate seeing that.
I sure do! You can schedule time to chat about how I can help you or take this important task off your don’t-want-to-do list HERE.
