Bookkeeping Professionals Only…
BKX is THE tribal community event for Bookkeeping Professionals only. This sacred time is for you to:
- Accelerate your business
- Connect with a community of like-minded professionals

What to Expect
Let's face it...owning a bookkeeping business can be lonely. The trials and opportunities we face are unique. Wouldn't it be great to meet with others who know what you're going through? Guess what? They're all here at BKX.
Experience, "they" say, brings knowledge. I call horse-hockey on this. It's all about learning the right skills at the right time. AND...skills that your clients will actually pay you good money to perform. Those kinds of skills lead to confidence. This is what BKX delivers.
Propel your business (and life) forward. Where else can you go as a BK Pro and be surrounded by ONLY BK Pros? Ummm, that would be no to the where. Except BKX!
Tribe. Family. Posse. Whatever you call us, we are "different". That uniqueness means that we need to stick together. We come together here...at BKX.

Say the name Erin Brockovich and you think, strong, tough and stubborn. Erin is all that and definitely more. She is a modern-day “David” who loves a good brawl with today’s “Goliaths”. She thrives on being the voice for those who don’t know how to yell. She is a rebel. She is a fighter. She is a mother. She is a woman. She is you and me.
It’s been over 15 years since Julia Roberts starred in the Oscar-winning tour de force, Erin Brockovich. The film turned an unknown legal researcher into a 20th century icon by showcasing how her dogged persistence was the impelling force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history. Since then, Erin hasn’t been resting on her laurels…she continues to fight hard and win big!

Jonathan Van Horn
Founder of Tooth & Coin | Host of Start Your Dental Practice Podcast
Jonathan Van Horn
Jonathan created Tooth & Coin to solve the problem facing many dentists – they have a complicated business and their time is stretched way too thin. Most dentists spend 15,000 hours learning to be a dentist but ZERO hours learning how to be a business owner.
Tooth & Coin aims to completely automate and outsource the bookkeeping, financial reporting, and tax portion of the dentist’s business so that they can focus on what really matters in their practice.
By creating an automated workflow for the dentist and by focusing on showing dentists what numbers they need to be watching, Tooth & Coin has allowed dental practices around the country to raise profits by hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
When not interviewing dentists on his podcast Start Your Dental Practice, coaching dentists on being a better business owner, or just nerding it up with business owners about ways to be more profitable Jonathan enjoys spending time going to the lake with his wife April, daughters Harper and Bailey, and son Finn. He’s also been known to play golf (poorly).
Weird facts about Jonathan – he was once ranked in the top ten in the nation at whiffleball, played bass guitar in a rock band for eight years, and spent his college years playing semi-professional poker.

Owner, Lionshare Bookkeeping
Ben Day started Lionshare Bookkeeping in April 2017 “just” to make a little side hustle money. Originally attracted to passive income and financial independence, Ben figured he could learn about real estate investing by helping a few landlords and house flippers get approved for loans.
Today, Lionshare Bookkeeping works exclusively with real estate investors across the United States. In an industry that requires a deep pool of tax and finance knowledge, Lionshare aims to make bookkeeping a source of strength and leverage for it’s clients instead of a point of never-ending anxiety.
Good bookkeeping means good tax returns, but great bookkeeping means attracting private capital, qualifying for bigger loans at your local community bank, and understanding your cash flow so well that you can confidently scale your business with team members and systems – this is what financial independence is all about!
Outside of bookkeeping, Lionshare also offers startup coaching and “bootcamp” style courses to help brand new investors get started on the right track. Outside of business, Ben likes to put his music degree to good use, groom his beard, and indulge himself in a variety of craft beer.
