This three-hour virtual session will cover the basics of bookkeeping for small businesses, helping you implement workflows and systems that will take you from overwhelmed to organized. No more forgetting to submit receipts or wondering if you’ll have enough money to cover payroll: after this session, you’ll know what you need to do so you can have all the numbers at your fingertips. And the goal is to avoid overwhelm.
You don’t have to be good with numbers to manage your books. Even if you are going to hire a professional, you’ll want this overview to know you’re able to review their work with confidence.
By the time you leave, you’ll be ready to tackle your bookkeeping with gusto! Plus, all participants will leave with a toolkit of resources, including templates, worksheets, and helpful links. Small business owners are encouraged to send key employees if they are unable to attend themselves.

There will be two ten-minute breaks to allow for checking your email, grabbing a cup of coffee, etc.
