The teacher of this class, Libby Santin, believes that if you don't understand your books, you don't understand your business! New business owners usually focus on delivering a product or service, not financial statements. Often owners are afraid of digging into their "numbers" which is understandable because the numbers don't lie!

This class will let you face the fear of the unknown by walking through two of the most common financial statements, the Balance Sheet and Income Statement. You'll have an opportunity to work on putting together basic statements using your own or sample financial information.
