You are already an accounting professional, trying to build a solid client base...
But did you know you could be in hot demand if you dive into the ever-growing hemp/CBD niche?
If you already know that this niche is right for you and you’re ready to get started, click below.
We invite you to imagine a future where:
If this is how you envisioned your accounting practice, then you should consider becoming a hemp/CBD accounting professional.
Provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE to high-fee clients which will help clients come to you -- every month.
Become a high-demand expert in a field that is growing faster than any other niche in the country. As of 2019, hemp and CBD are now legal in 46 states under federal law as long as farmers and hemp/CBD business owners continue to comply with state laws.
In 2019, farmers were licensed for 500,000 acres, which was a 455% increase from 2018. Sixteen thousand new licenses were issued in 2019. Do the math and that’s 16,000 new businesses that NEED EXCEPTIONALLY TRAINED HEMP/CBD ACCOUNTANTS.
You read that correctly: 16,000 new businesses and many staffed with inexperienced CBD accountants and employees who do not understand MAJOR accounting issues in the hemp/CBD industry, such as complicated tax codes, GAAP compliance, Seed to Sale reconciliation, software integration, and numerous regulation laws.
You, the trained CBD accounting specialist, will be their bridge to compliance, their life-line to success… their guide to understanding taxes, deductions, and reports processed correctly THE FIRST TIME to avoid the massive headaches of auditing and tax penalties.
Unless someone they can trust has been provided with the proper training to execute the complex inner workings of accrual cost accounting, accurate inventory reporting, and delicate tax code navigation… these businesses are at risk of accumulating huge fines and penalties, as well as overpaying taxes..
They might even get shut down.
But, thankfully, with you available -- just a phone call or email away -- these flourishing businesses can now thrive thanks to your expertise and thorough understanding of the ins and outs of hemp/CBD accounting.
Our CBD CFO program provides the exact 360-degree system you need to:
✔ YES to working in the hemp/CBD industry.
✔ YES to becoming an expert in a rapidly-growing niche that needs your drive, enthusiasm, and accounting IQ to provide the WORLD-CLASS SERVICE DOPE CFO is known for inspiring.
✔ YES to joining a supportive community full of like-minded professionals who support and fuel your success with knowledge, tips, and resources to help you get ahead in this exciting, high-demand industry.
We all want the best clients. The ONLY way to get those clients is to hone in on a really strong niche and become an expert in that niche. Why not choose hemp/CBD -- the fastest growing niche in the country?
By focusing on a single, powerful niche, you can learn EVERYTHING about that niche: accounting procedures, tax codes, legal operations, software solutions, industry practices, the right marketing messages when recruiting clients, and more!
For a niche to be great, we say that it has to fit the RUBBER profile:
CBD CFO helps you learn how to find those high fee prospects. With our WORLD-CLASS systems and tools we provide, you can implement these practices as early as DAY 1 of the course. Many have landed their first high-paying client within 90 DAYS.
Hemp/CBD business owners have complex accounting needs; therefore, they need a lot of specialized support. And with revenues for CBD companies skyrocketing, it only makes sense that they pay more for accounting services.
Yeah, we know CEOs say they want you LOCAL and want your time, but this does not give a CEO the key solutions to ease their pain.
What they really want is:
And the great news is YOU can be the one to give them everything that they need to protect their investments and keep them compliant.. Everything you could possibly need to:
The CBD CFO accounting program is perfect for intermediate/advanced accounting professionals (bookkeepers, tax professionals, Controllers, CFOs, CPAs, etc.) who want to build a hemp and/or CBD accounting practice or who want to add hemp/CBD to their existing business.
We designed this program to give you a full, comprehensive toolkit to get your hemp/CBD business up and running quickly. We like to think of it as a “niche-in-a-box.” This plug-and-play program includes:
We provide you with all the tools, resources, workpapers, and non-salesy marketing system to get you in the DOPE Zone.
And by DOPE Zone, we mean becoming a lifestyle accountant where you are paid for what you're worth. You can work remotely and make a difference while having the freedom and flexibility to set your own hours. Furthermore, you get to CHOOSE clients who value you for your expertise in the industry; not just settle for clients who think they understand your field and are willing to grossly under-pay you.
The other essential part of becoming a hemp/CBD accountant extraordinaire is achieving VIP (Valuable Expert, Instructor, and Participant) status. With our VIP part of the program, we teach you how to grow your practice and knowledge base at an accelerated rate. When you apply the gas pedal to the learning process, you quickly add a razor sharp competitive edge to your understanding of not only accounting and taxes, but products, operations, software, and compliance. This means you will provide your clients with HUGE value-added services -- which means you get to charge HIGHER FEES.
We have spent years getting to know clients, the landscape of hemp and CBD, and the issues clients face across verticals.
We know tax and compliance issues are even more complex for hemp/CBD products than for Cannabis.
We know how overwhelmed CEOs feel when they face end-of-year reports or know an audit is pending.
The messaging we include in our marketing system and templates is specifically crafted to meet the pain points of your target clients. Without even having to understand or develop marketing yourself, you can put our templates to work for you to garner the clients you deserve.
With our Value Stack of every single document, process, workpaper, etc. we and our students use every day, you will have the power to absolutely wow your clients with your expertise. You don’t even need an accounting degree to take the hemp or CBD accounting industry by storm.
These templates, workpapers, and documents have been carefully curated and developed by licensed CPAs with more than 20 years of experience. Most documents have been reviewed closely by attorneys and have been used to help hemp/CBD businesses of all sizes and types stay compliant with the IRS and federal and state laws.
We offer absolutely every single process, document, workpaper, template, video hemp/CBD tax code, and other applicable resource you could posiibly
We hold your hand through every part of this comprehensive marketing system that leads you from sending emails and no-pitch call scripts to landing your first client. The materials in this program have been developed specifically for people who don’t like sales and marketing, removing all the guesswork and “marketing skill” required from this crucial part of building a hemp/CBD accounting business. Better yet, you don’t have to heft out a fortune for marketing alone.
VIP stands for:
The very core of our CBD CFO program, becoming a VIP means you have achieved the skills and means to become an invaluable expert, instructor, and participant in the industry. We teach you our exact 90-day plan to become a VIP just like many others in our program.
The true heart of our course and the wellspring of value for you and your clients lies in these files.
Onboarding documents are essential to recruit new clients smoothly. These files include an engagement letter template, action plan template, a file management system to stay organized, client documents request list, and a detailed process to get your new client on board and paying you a retainer without a hiccup.
Other templates include building a summary of Accounting Policies and Internal Controls for compliant month-end reports and processes that give each client their own “perpetual data room.”
All essential workpapers have been curated, modified, and updated by a multitude of highly-respected CPAs over the past few years. We have amassed them here for your convenience as workpaper templates and processes to enable solid cost accounting to keep CEO clients compliant.
All clients will have a “perpetual data room” (based on our exact setup structure) that holds files that add structure and transparency to prepare any CEO for audits, lenders, investors, and management meetings.
With the cash rolling forecast and control workpapers, you can really show your client the money easily and accurately. Leverage these workpapers to build monthly reports that help your clients navigate short and long term cash flow objectives for a close assessment of cash control, profit and loss, and balance sheet changes.
Every hemp/CBD business needs these must-have documents to accumulate data in field and track strains, along with yield, cycles, percent complete, and other critical cost accounting data.
To be an exceptional hemp or CBD accounting professional, you have to know the industry -- from the inside out. We have included information on key tax codes like 263a and 199a, Farm Accounting rules, and USDA and FDA regulations. Your clients will need you to fully understand everything in these codes to meet IRS and other agency requirements for minimized taxes, proper deductions, and optimized tax credits.
No CBD accounting “niche-in-a-box” program would be complete without templates for building a summary of Accounting Policies and Internal Controls for every unique client.
