Paint with Numbers
July 29 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Four sessions: July 29, August 5, 12 & 19 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Calling all business owners!
You love the creative side of your business (your product or service).
Learn to love the financial side, too! (It’s posssible! We promise!)
Do you feel a little queasy when you look at your shoebox full of receipts? We can help! If you have ever said, “I just don’t get the numbers” or “numbers are like a foreign language to me,” this series is for you. We want you to gracefully and easily move from “overwhelmed” to “growing confidence” on the path from “struggling start up” to “vibrant and successful business.” And we’ll take it in easy little steps:
- First, we’ll take a playful look at the numbers in your business, what they are, where they hide, how to find them, and how they can help you.
- Then, we’ll help you to make sense of “money in” and “money out” in your business, and use this understanding to help you make good decisions.
- Next, we’ll pull it all together into simple habits, practices, rituals, and tools to keep you and your numbers happily working together.
- And finally, we’ll pull it all together in a working session using your actual “shoebox” of receipts and your personal recordkeeping tools.
Real practice + support = growing confidence in your number-painting know how!
Before you know it, you’ll have clear steps for managing your record keeping, keeping track of those pesky receipts, and using your “money in” and “money out” numbers to see how healthy your business is. And you will have the information to guide you to the steps that can make your business even better. You may even be able to say things like “cash flow” and “bookkeeping” and “financial planning” with a smile!
