This course is designed to give you must needed insights into the World of Accounts where we go over the building blocks of Bookkeeping, Accounting, Financial Statements and Ratio Analysis together.
There are Six Sections to this Course -
The First Section goes through Accounting Lingo and is perfect for beginners to start understanding the language of Accounts. This section is meant for people who have little working knowledge of accounts. This Section will help bring you up to speed with Basic Accounting Vocabulary. After all, if you were to learn any Language you would start with the ABC's right?
In the Second Section - We go through what is called the Accounting Cycle (which in plain English simply means the process Accountants follow). If you've ever wondered what Accountants really do- you'll get a sneak peek in this section. Plus, I give you a cool little trick to understand journal entries- the building blocks of accounting functionality. If Debits and Credits have ever confused you in school- you'll never be confused again. Many people also get confused by the term Bookkeeping and don't fully understand the functioning of Bookkeepers in the Business process and we also go over that together in this section. Once you know more about the Accounting Cycle you'll uncover the mystery behind the numbers of your Business.
Section Three takes us away from the world of the theoretical into the world of the practical as we take the knowledge we have learned from Sections 1 & 2 and put it into practice by taking a deep dive and learning a Free Accounting Software called Wave.
In Section Four- we will look at and understand the 3 Main Financial Statements - The Balance Sheet, The Income Statement and the Cash Flow Statement. If you have not understood Financial Statements in the past and why they are so important - You've been missing out! Understanding Financial Statements is a MUST for anybody who wants to make a dent in the world of Business. If you own a Business or ever plan to own one - Understanding how to read Financial Statements can take you from being a good business owner to a great one. They can take you from an Average investor to a Savvy one.
Section Five teaches you Ratio Analysis. Ratio Analysis allows you to thoroughly analyze a company's performance using the companies Financial Statements. Learning how to calculate Financial Ratios can help give you quick and insightful information about companies.
Last, but not least we have all the commonly asked questions as part of an ongoing library assembled and put together in Section Six.
This course is made in an easy to follow, topic by topic format with plenty of quizzes to test your learning along the way. You will also be seeing a bit of my zany humor in bits and pieces so please find it in your heart to forgive me. After all, most accounting courses have put me to sleep and if that's the kind of course your looking for then this course is not for you. This Course is also NOT designed to save your Marriage or get you a date with Katy Perry (Or Brad Pitt if you prefer). See, I warned you about my zany humor, didn't I?
Apart from any of the humor - more importantly - This Course WILL give you a Good rundown into the world of Accounts - something which I believe will help you and your business in many ways throughout your lifetime.

I began my career as a Financial Analyst at a New York Bank analyzing the Financial Statements for Small and Medium Enterprises for 10 years which made me understand and enhance all my Accounting and Finance concepts. This Knowledge later enabled me to create a concrete business plan and successfully start and run my own business.
Starting and running my own business came with a steep learning curve which thought me a lot. I use the experiences I have gained in life to build courses in several areas including Accounting, Finance, Productivity & Marketing.
