Is your business running away from you because you don't have a handle on the numbers?

More than half of all new businesses shut their doors within just five years. Don't let your business become one of the statistics, just because the numbers scare you! Between you and the numbers--YOU have to be the boss.

Even if you're afraid of numbers, Entrepreneurial Finance will teach you how to...

»  Create and manage your financial statements.

»  Analyze your operating activities and your competition.

»  Plan your cash flow so you have money for inventory and seasonal sales.

»  Avoid financial booby-traps that can wreck your business.

»  Show lenders and investors that you're well prepared and a good risk.


Finance does not need to be mysterious and intimidating. Basic business finance is not hard to understand, and the business owner or manager who understands finance has a leg up on the competition. Entrepreneurial Finance  explains the key financial statements – the cash flow statement, profit and loss statement, and balance sheet – and provides the tools to analyze these financial statements.

Genuine case studies of small businesses – a retail shop, small manufacturing business, and medical office - are used throughout, so you can compare the way your business works to the case studies, and to industry norms.

In the short amount of time it will take to read Entrepreneurial Finance, you will learn the basics of finance, and the keys to creating and managing a profitable business.
