More about this course

Making money is the very reason your business exists – but often, entrepreneurs don't pay enough attention to the financials that drive the bottom line. Sound financial planning documents can not only win over investors; they're valuable tools for monitoring the company's progress toward profitability.

In this course we'll examine and counteract common mis-perceptions about financial planning, learn about different models for revenue and cost projections, and use worksheets to build the statements that matter most. 

We have included a full financial model that you can use to build a complete financial model for your business.  Please note this course does not walk you through how to use the model.  This course is intended to create a solid foundation so you can move on to create a financial forecast for our business.
