These free timely workshops, presented by recognized experts and practitioners, will cover a variety of issues facing small business owners and entrepreneurs including finances, marketing, and strategic planning.
Join us on Friday, Oct. 4 for Understanding Your Financial Statements, presented by Lisa Bargsley. Financial statements can be overwhelming sometimes. But if you think of them as pictures revealing the story of your financial decisions, the story becomes fascinating and not just about numbers. This interactive class will show you how to read and understand the story.
This workshop will help participants:
- Understand the accounting equation
- Become familiar with accounting terminology
- Understand the differences and relationships of a balance sheet, a profit and loss statement, and a cash flow statement
- Tell the story and realize that there might be more to it than just the numbers!
