MicroBusinessForTeens.com is a real person, me, Carol Topp, CPA. I’m the author of the Micro Business for Teens series and operate an accounting practice (a micro business!) that specializes in tax preparation, small/micro business start-ups, and nonprofit accounting.
I am speaker and presenter on money management, nonprofit management, business start ups and taxes with an emphasis on helping teenagers, families, and causes I care about.
As a member of the Ohio Society of CPAs Speakers Bureau, I have presented numerous workshops on money management, business start up, taxes, and budgeting to various community, church and homeschool groups. I have also published several magazine articles in The Old Schoolhouse, Home Education, Homeschool Enrichment magazines and the National Association of Tax Professionals.
Interested in having me speak about micro businesses at your convention, on-live event, podcast or webinar? Read my workshop descriptions on my speaker page.
I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband. Both of my daughters started micro businesses as teenagers. Emily taught piano lessons and tutored younger students in math and writing. Sarah designed web sites and took senior pictures. Through my daughters, accounting clients, and homeschooling groups, I have met dozens of teenagers that started their own micro businesses. I was asked to write my book series, Micro Business for Teens to help these teenagers.
I’m also a work-at-home-mom (WAHM) with a micro business, my accounting practice. I started my business, Carol Topp, CPA, LLC in 2000 with 16 tax clients, a home office, and no debt.
In 2010, I wrote the Micro Business for Teens book series and in 2012 I hosted the public television production of Micro Business for Teens:Starting a Micro Business.
I have authored a total of 11 books. Other books include:
- Homeschool Co-ops: How to Start Them, Run Them and Not Burn Out
- The IRS and Your Homeschool Organization.
- Money Management in a Homeschool Organization
- Business Tips and Taxes for Writers
- Career Exploration for Homeschool High School Students
