Financial Statements: Their Importance and How to Use Them

Have you ever found yourself making any of these comments? 

  • I know I need to do a business plan and it has to include projected financial statements, but I really don’t understand what they are.I’ve never been any good with numbers.
  • I think I’m making a decent profit, but I never seem to have enough cash to pay my bills.
  • I can print my financial statements out of Quickbooks, but I really don’t know what I’m supposed to do with them.

If so, this is the workshop for you.  This is a very basic workshop and we’ll go over the financial statements that every business owner should be reviewing.  We’ll show you what to look at and why.  Learn the best practices to follow and the common pitfalls to avoid.

A business can be profitable right up to the time it goes bankrupt!  Profits are not the same as cash and cash will always be king!
