Description

Get your books in a row!

Not always the most fun part of running a small business, but knowing how to do your own bookkeeping is an invaluable skill. Even if you outsource your accounting, understanding how to read statements and what's happening in the books is critical to maintain control of your operations. Come to learn from the ground up, get a refresher, and bring those nasty spreadsheets with you!

With accountant Sharon Wilkie of Glasshouse Capacity Building Services. Sharon has extensive experience with small businesses, charities, non-profits and coops and has helped hundreds of people from all walks of life understand bookkeeping with workshops and the development of an online course.

PART II:
In this workshop, we'll start with 30 min of Q & A related to your bookkeeping needs, and follow that with one on one time where you can sit with an accountant for 15 - 20 minutes to look at your books and offer even more personalized advice. You will book your one on one time at the start of the session - first come first serve!

Don't forget to bring your laptops and spreadsheets!
