Becoming Best Friends with your Financials Series This six-part series on finance will be highly interactive and requires participants to be willing to share their numbers, as the class will include some time to work on budgets.
Participants will bring in the numbers they used to determine a retail price on their service or item and a history of their monthly sales and expenses for the Cost of Goods class. This way, we can validate the numbers or create changes.
By the end of this series, participants will have a completed budget with validated and realistic numbers as well as the knowledge to read and use their financial statements in their business.
Please bring the following to each session:
• Ability to use Excel
• And other items per the workshop topic
