Experienced bookkeepers, accountants, and tax professionals are needed in a big way to service the Cannabis niche. If you're ready to get started, click below.
We’d like for you to take a moment to imagine...
The choice is yours, and that choice looks like becoming a DOPE CFO ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONAL.
AND you will confidently be able to provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE, and WOW your CEO clients every month!
You see, the reality is that of the approximately 100,000 legally licensed Cannabis and CBD/hemp businesses in the US, the majority of them have inexperienced and untrained bookkeepers that simply don’t have the knowledge, tools, or workpapers, and are unable to do the complex cost and accrual accounting required.
Untrained bookkeepers also don’t understand how to navigate 280e, 471, or other tax rules, which is dangerous in such an audit prone industry, leaving these businesses open to huge fines and penalties. This will leave LOTS of money on the table for these companies.
✔ YES to working in the Cannabis/CBD/hemp industry.
✔ YES to becoming a specialist in a niche that desperately needs your passion, expertise, and commitment to WORLD-CLASS SERVICE.
✔ YES to working with other like-minded professionals so that you can learn, share knowledge and wins, and stay on top of this fast-paced, highly regulated industry.
Our Cannabis/CBD Accounting & Tax 5.0 Program is for seasoned accounting professionals (bookkeepers, tax professionals, Controllers, CFOs, CPAs, etc) who are looking to build a fully remote, national Cannabis/CBD/hemp accounting and tax practice, or to add the expertise and services to their existing business.
We provide this proven system in the Cannabis/CBD Accounting & Tax 5.0 Program that details how we prospect QUALIFIED business owners, and land clients that pay us thousands every month for our services. We bill on the value we provide and never cost per hour.
Even if you hate sales, and marketing isn’t your skill set, don’t worry. If you follow our proven system, which includes our cold outreach emails, call scripts (we never “sell;” we just ask questions on our call), our pricing checklist and Excel price quoting tool, and our offer templates, you will have what you need in order to help you land YOUR FIRST Cannabis or CBD/hemp client.
So our messaging is specifically crafted in such a way that you attract the clients that will benefit most from your help and support.
Once you land a new client, we give you every system, process, tool, and workpaper that you will need in order to provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE to their business, and WOW them with your expertise, even if you do not have an accounting degree. These systems are ready to go on day one. Just plug and play, and there is nothing missing.
Our program has templates, tools, and workpapers that were developed by licensed CPAs with over 20 years of experience. Many of these documents have been reviewed by Cannabis attorneys and tax experts, and have been used to provide services to complex businesses (and of course Cannabis/CBD/hemp companies) of all shapes and sizes.
SPECIFIC to grows/farms, processors, distribution, manufacturers, dispensaries, and complex entities.
Note: Quickbooks and other common systems DO NOT have Cannabis charts of accounts.

We provide detailed instructions, examples, videos, templates, and actual workpapers to acquire the operating data needed each month in order to perform correct cost accounting.

You have to understand one thing about cannabis CEOs:
The stakes are incredibly high. There are many financial challenges that Cannabis and CBD/hemp CEOs must overcome in order to be successful.
