Numbers do not have to be intimidating.

They tell a great story if you know how to read them.

We teach the basic accounting concepts and use them to accelerate your organization. If you are an experienced business owner or accounting professional, take a step out of the weeds and see if your organization’s accounting and finance is a well-oiled tool in your organization or if your lack of accounting structure is exposing you to risk.

Numbers do not have to be intimidating. They tell a great story if you know how to read them. Through presentation, questioning, and group discussion, you will optimize your honing of financial skills and devise appropriate action with accountability to read your financial story better.
