The NumberNerd Template Lab is a course that helps solopreneur bookkeepers + CPAs grow their practice without feeling overwhelmed and strapped for time. The course was created just for you, the busy accounting and bookkeeping professional who is ready to get serious about managing their workload so they can scale their business and grow their bottom line.
I take what seems like an impossible situation and give you a doable timeline with actionable tasks, processes and swipe files to get your back-end system set up and give you space at an affordable price, and in an efficient and organized way. I teach you the exact systems and processes that helped me get Number Nerd to the six-figure business it is today. You are getting a done-for-you system. In each module, I review template swipe files and teach you how to customize them to your business.
“Number Nerd Bookkeeping Solutions workflow templates have given order to my business, allowing me to streamline my workflow and add a new team member with ease. The workflow templates have given my business a process to follow and helped us to keep all client balls in the air without the fear of one dropping. The admin templates gives us our time back with a simple process for onboarding new clients and following up once the project is complete. I highly recommend Heather and Number Nerd workflows.”

“Thanks, you coached me to charge a halfway decent rate. Thank you so much for instilling in me that I’m worth it, and to say, ‘Now, not my client,’ if they don’t pay my rates.”

We are going to talk about the different services that you offer and we’re going to create workflows for each of those services.
When we can get all of the client tasks that you do out of your head and into system workflows and set them up in a software program, you will be more streamlined and optimized. It’s going to give you back time and it’s also going to make you more money because you’re being more efficient.

I created the Template Lab because I’ve been through it all before and know the struggles that bookkeepers (especially solopreneurs) face when trying to do it all at the same time!
I built my own systems bit by bit and learned a lot along the way, eventually growing my business to six figures. I built these exact systems and processes while working a full-time job and doing Number Nerd on the side. It allowed me to go from 3-12 clients and then 6-months later leave my full-time job to run Number Nerd full-time.
It’s my mission to help solopreneurs have a different perspective when it comes to building their business—and not make some of the mistakes I did. If you set your business up the right way from the beginning, it eliminates frustration and confusion. You have your time back and it allows you to really enjoy doing what you love.
This is the very first thing I teach you in the baseline training… yes, you do have time! It’s all about working more efficiently, developing systems and processes that free up your time to do what you love. Plus, I’ve specifically designed the Template Lab to go at a pace that busy solopreneurs can incorporate into their already busy schedule. Plus, that’s what the template swipe files are for!
The template lab is a 6-month program. Each month a new module is released, on the first of the month. This allows adequate time to implement the systems you are learning.
However, you have life-time access to the course materials and as long as the course is offered you join the monthly hot-seats and submit questions on modules at any time.
There are monthly hot seats, which are 30-minute 1-on-1 mini-coaching sessions you can apply for and Heather will address the question/topic you submit. These sessions are recorded and shared with the members of the course.
Ongoing Q&A support providing what you need as you implement that month’s lesson in your own business. You are able to submit questions directly in the lesson you are working on at any time. Once a week Heather will review + respond to them directly in the module Q&A section or give you a video response.
If you need additional private 1-on-1 support, you also receive a $100 discount to book a JumpStart session with Heather. This allows you access to Heather privately and to work with her one-on-one to discuss a specific issue.
Yes~ BUT the Number Nerd Template Lab (NNTL) is much more than just a template download.
In NNTL I guide you through the set-up of the templates PLUS provide you more context and tips I’ve learned from running my bookkeeping business for 8 years. And you get access to ask me questions and get one-on-one help in Hot Seats as part of NNTL.
However, if you only want the templates you can find that bundle here.
The Template Lab course was intentionally designed to start with a foundation and build on top of each other, going through the templates in a specific order. This way, you are able to transform their processes holistically and benefit from a deep understanding of their systems.
