Am I Making Money?

Business Number Basics

Arrive at 5:30, sign-in and network with other entrepreneurs and SCORE volunteer business experts.  Get a good seat for the program that begins promptly at 6:00 PM.  

Are you struggling to understand if your business is making money? Do you have a panic attack when people say “You should know your numbers”? Do you avoid talking to your accountant because you don’t understand your “statements”?

You didn’t get into business to spend all day with numbers. We know that. However, a business owner needs a basic dashboard to understand how their business is performing. We make this process simple.

At this workshop, we will introduce 3 financial statements that will give you a high level “dashboard” for how your business is performing financially. Don’t bring a PC; we will not crunch numbers at this session. 

This is an informative talk will cover the following:

  • What are Financial Statements?
    • What is a Balance Sheet & what does it show?
    • What is an Income Statement & what does it show?
    • What is a Cash Flow Statement & what does it show?
  •  $$$ ratios as a financial management tool: what they mean and how to use them.
  • We will review simple Financial Statements for a small Pizza Business to bring this to life.
