Attend our 2 night Business Finance and 4 night hands-on QuickBooks financial series workshops.     Our professional instructors will explain why it is so important to keep good records, how to read financial statements, how to setup your business in QuickBooks and show you how easy it connects to your bank and your business account. The education will not only save you time and money it will help you with decision making, because you will know where your business stands anytime with just a push of a button to get the report you need. You have a bookkeeper/accountant? That great. But… It’s your business not theirs. You need to have the financial knowledge to communicate and understand what they are doing with your books. So no excuses. If your own your own business this workshop series is a must for you. Class sizes are limited to 10. So don’t hesitate. Classes fill fast.
