“If you don’t know your numbers, you don’t know your business.” This is a common refrain that is equally applicable to attorneys and other consultants who work with businesses.
The MBA IN A DAY- ESSENTIALS OF FINANCE & ACCOUNTING Financial Poise webinar series is designed for you if you are a startup founder, business owner, executive, investor, attorney or consultant who, though not a finance or accounting professional, finds herself needing to understand finance and accounting. It won’t make you an expert but it will give you the tools you need to speak with experts in order to get more out of them and it will provide a solid foundation on which you can build.
Packed with illustrative examples, helpful anecdotes and real-world case studies, this series teaches you some of the key take things you need to understand about finance and accounting.
The second episode of the series, How to Read a Balance Sheet –And Why You Care!, airs on April 12th at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Jonathan Friedland of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by Richard Claywell of the Offices of J. Richard Claywell CPA, Paul Clinkscales of Aesir Media Group, and John Levitske of Ankura.
A balance sheet provides a snapshot of a company’s assets, liabilities, and equity. It is one of several major financial statements used to manage a business, and is a critical due diligence item used by lenders and investors in deciding whether to provide capital to a business. This webinar explains the basics of understanding a balance sheet and puts it in context by also touching on the other key financial statements.
