    Hi everyone!

    I’m new to this site and am looking for some help.

    The company I’m currently working for is going into liquidation soon, is trading insolvent and now can’t pay our wages on time…

    So I’ve decided to use my 10 yrs bookkeeping experience and offer my services to small businesses, rather than be one of 100’s applying for advertised jobs in the current highly-competitive job market.

    I need to generate another source of income, so I’ve decided to use my skills and prior experience running a small business and offer bookkeeping services, something I’m great at, qualified in, and something I love doing.

    So I just wanted to get some ideas on how to generate new leads fairly quickly, and to see if there’s anyone out there I can help with their bookkeeping at intro rates, which will save them money and give me a starting point and hopefully an endorsement for my work to help with getting more leads.

    Any feedback, tips or possible leads for work would be fantastic!!!!

    Hi Bookkeeping girl,

    Check out oDesk and elance – sign up for a profile and you can start applying for contracts related to your skill-set within minutes.

    When I quit my day job and decided to freelance full time (as a web designer), I started out on oDesk and did a few jobs at low cost in order to build my profile and get some feedback on my profile. After doing this the job offers started to roll in and pretty soon I was flooded with work. The best part is that there are plenty of Aussie small to medium businesses on there looking to outsource work to contractors who are also in AU.

    Good luck.
