“Show Me the Money ! .... Understanding Financial Statements ”, facilitated by Kumar Saha
Part 6 of a 6-Part Lunch n’ Learn discussion vignette series, each serving as a short introduction to the Small Business Boot-Camp education series. This discussion focuses on the financial aspect of business. Many individuals feel that they do not understand the financial side of business, in that they do not know what a balance sheet tells them, or what an income and expense statement explains, or what the difference is between a cash flow and an income and expense statement. The discussion explains each statement and what they are used for as well as how all three are interconnected. Finally the discussion will illustrate why good financial management is paramount to success for any entrepreneur.
