Most business owners recognize the critical role that recordkeeping plays in the success of their business. But many of us struggle when it comes to actually keeping those records up to date. This three-part webinar will serve as a gentle introduction to financial management by outlining best practices, reviewing the most common financial statements, and explaining how to use these tools in the day-to-day management of your business — particularly when it comes to navigating the new hurdles COVID has created for your business.
Part III: The third week of this three-part series will walk us through how to harness the power of good record-keeping when making vital business decisions under COVID. We’ll discuss how to analyze our business statements to determine our next steps, whether that’s applying for federal loans, filing taxes, pivoting in a new direction — or all of the above.
This hour-long webinar will be conducted over Zoom; a conferencing link will be sent out approximately 24 hours in advance.
