Course Description:

• Are Profit and Loss statements a foreign language to you?
• Do you ever even look at your Balance Sheet?
• Is Cash Flow what you have in the bank today?

When it comes to the business of our business we have not been trained how to use the tools available to us. This seminar will show you real world examples of how to use a Profit and Loss statement to determine where your business is succeeding and where it needs help. You’ll learn how to read your balance sheet to determine the financial health of your company and what you can do with it. And we’ll look at some sample cash flows to understand how you need to plan your work flow and spending. You will also learn how to figure out what your business should be doing and, more importantly, what you could be doing financially.
