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, Finance Without Fear 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. Finance Without Fear  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 Finance Without Fear, you will learn the basics of finance, and the keys to creating and managing a profitable business.

Get a grip on your business's cash situation -- even if you hate numbers!


The old saying "cash is king" is never more true than when you are trying to start, grow, or manage a business. To be successful, your business will need to have enough cash to pay its bills. Running out of cash is an all-too-common reason to fail. And you must understand how to tell if a problem is brewing, and act before it's too late.

 

To build a profitable business, you must understand how much cash is needed to start, grow and operate the business. The Institute for Finance & Entrepreneurship's Finance Without Fear Business Forecasting Workbook provides you with all the hands-on tools you need to forecast the cash needs and financial operations of a business. You don't have to be an accountant, or even "good with numbers."

 

By using this workbook, you will learn how to:

»  Estimate start up expenses.

»  Project sales and revenue.

»  Determine how much cash is needed for operations and growth.

»  Evaluate the impact of changes in price, units, and margins.

»  Develop financial projections for a business plan.

 

The Finance Without Fear Business Forecasting Workbook includes access to electronic Business Forecasting Model spreadsheets for the three most common types of businesses (manufacturing, retail, and professional service)--just put in your own numbers and you're good to go.

 

If you are planning on starting a business, or plan to grow an existing business, the tools and models in this workbook will help you create a profitable business.
