FAQs

What’s included? How many lessons, what kind of extra resources?
  • 6 Lessons each broken down to cover specific topics
  • Over 23 videos
  • Worksheets that guide you through the lessons
  • A glossary sheet to reference
  • Spreadsheets to use to help organize your business, track mileage, and more
  • Calculators to determine tax savings, your pay, and reinvestments
What’s the difference between the “self-paced” version, and the version with group coaching?

The self-paced version of the course will give you access to all the course materials and the Facebook group, so you can learn at your own pace.

The “coaching” version includes 6 group coaching calls on Zoom for extra support, accountability, and direct answers to all your finance questions. You still get access to the Facebook to ask questions and get support.

If I sign up for the course now, can I still get access to group coaching later?

Yes you can! I’ll let you know when the couaching course opens again, so you can get a discount when you sign up.

Will this course work for my business?
This course is created for any type of location-independent business: digital nomads, travelers, solopreneurs and freelancers. Some parts apply specifically to RV-based business owners.

That being said, if you’re already a highly successful business owner with enough income to hire a bookkeeper and tax professional, it might make more sense to outsource. That’s why we offer a VIP option where you get to hire me to do the work – but also take the course, so you understand exactly where it’s all coming from.

If you have a more complicated business or business structure, this course might not be enough for you to gain full clarity on your business’ needs and tax requirements.

This is NOT for you if your business is based outside the US; this course only applies to US tax code and US taxpayers.

How long does the course take? How many weeks is it?
You get access to all the lessons from day one. It’s your choice how quickly you complete the lessons. I suggest you complete one lesson a week so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Plus, this will allow you to commit the same amount of time each week to the lesson and corresponding worksheet. If you opt for the live version of the course, we’ll have one coaching call a week for each lesson (6 weeks).
Can I skip a lesson?
This is a self-paced course, which means you can work the course around your time needs and lifestyle. If you feel a lesson is a review for you, I suggest you still complete it. You might learn something new on the topic. Also, I do recommend you go in order since the lessons build on themselves.
How long do I have access to the course?
You have access to this version of the course as long as it remains active.
How is the course delivered?
The course is online, and hosted on this website. You will have access to videos to watch, spreadsheets to keep and worksheets to download. You can choose to print the worksheets, or use them electronically: you don’t need a printer if you fill them out electronically.

This course includes quite a few calculators and worksheets using Google Sheets. This is free online software that is available to all.

What if I haven’t launched my business yet?
If you’re in the process of starting a business, this is the perfect time to take this course! Follow the guidelines in the course to get your business up and running in no time. The course will help you get organized and registered correctly from the beginning. Plus, you’ll have your finances in order and understand your tax obligations from the start. It’s never too early to get organized.
Is this course updated to reflect the current US tax laws?
Yes, this course is up-to-date to reflect the latest tax laws in the USA at the time of recording. If tax laws change, I will add bonus videos to share the updates.
What kind of support do I get throughout the course?

If you run into any kind of tech issue, you can contact us at [email protected]

There is a private Facebook group you can join. That’s usually the best and quickest place to ask questions and get help from your instructor.

If you sign up for group coaching, you also get six (6) group video calls for support, accountability, and direct answers to all your questions.

Why pay for this information? Isn’t it also available for free?

While a lot of information is available online for free, there are two issues with free information:

  • Free information online is scattered, and you can spend a lot of time looking for answers. In this course, all the information is grouped in one place – and it’s easy to find exactly what you need, when you need it.
  • Answers to financial questions on the web are not always correct, up to date and relevant for your situation. As an expert in my field, I provide you with accurate and specific information.
