What others are saying:

Hi! I'm Mariette Martinez.

I began my accounting career at a very young age, being raised in a family-owned business that lasted over thirty years. My first job out of high school was at an accounting firm and I worked at this firm throughout my college career until I graduated from California State University, Northridge in 2002 with a B.S. in Accountancy.

After graduation, I was recruited by a national CPA firm in Beverly Hills which specialized in small to mid-sized companies. At this firm, I discovered my true passion for helping small business owners and as a result, I decided to specialize in accounting and taxation of small businesses and become and IRS Enrolled Agent (EA) and an expert in accounting technologies, including Intuit’s accounting solutions. Following my career in public/private accounting, in 2009, I opened my own practice so I can continue to grow and share my knowledge with the small business community.

After 20+ years working with small businesses, my entrepreneurial spirit is still going strong and my journey has evolved from practitioner to educator. My current passion project is to share my vast knowledge and strong connections with the accounting industry to create awareness and deliver focus-driven education around the importance of financial and business literacy for small business financial success.

As a Latina-Owned business, I recognize the importance to provide learning opportunities and financial education for the rapid-growing Spanish-Speaking small business community and I have created strategic partnerships to help create these resources in Spanish as well.

Still curious if this course is right for you?

Let me break it down for you!

Tax Ready Books is right for you if you're a:

  • Schedule C Sole Proprietorship (primarily service-based) 
  • Freelancer with a Side Hustle
  • Direct Seller/Multi-Level Marketer
  • Service-Based 1099 Contractor
  • Bookkeeping & Tax Pro that serves the Self-Employed community


Are you wondering why I included Bookkeeping & Tax Pros that serve the Self-Employed community?

This course is also an excellent resource for financial professionals that serve the Self-Employed community for 2 main reasons:

  • To learn the bookkeeping & tax-related tasks that need to be completed year-round to work more collaboratively with the self-employed community

  • To connect with the unique needs & goals of this fast growing community





I have designed this course so that the self-employed community can master their finances and taxes on their own but I always encourage collaboration with your bookkeeping and tax professional so you can take your business finances and tax savings to the next level.
