Making Sense of the Numbers
Keeping tabs on your financial results and financial position gives business owners the ability to make better business decisions. If only they were not so confusing!
There are only 7 key numbers that really matter when it comes to understanding financial reports and how well your business operations are really going. By understanding these 7 key numbers you can develop strategies and tactics to improve your financial performance and outcomes.
At our second session of the year, Anne will walk you through a process to clear the clutter away from your financial reports, demonstrate the relationship between a profit and loss report and the balance sheet (and why both reports are important) and provide you with a framework to make sense of your business results. You will also receive a copy of Anne’s free booklet “Financial Reports Made Simple: The 7 Key Numbers to Managing Your Business”
