Expectations of a Bookkeeper – Whose Company is it anyway? As a business owner, what should you be expecting of your bookkeeper, and how do you get it? Are they keeping you informed? Are you giving them what they need? Is your billing done accurately and timely? Have you reviewed your open Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and your bank and credit card reconciliations? I can help your bookkeeper with any questions and help you know what to ask for and how to stay on top of it. When you know your numbers, you know your business and can take advantage of opportunities. [30-50 min]
Business Financials Workshop: From Business Plan to Financial Projections – Let’s start with your plan for your business. Have you written your Business Plan? This is your living document of how you see your business, how you target your focus, the problems you are solving for others, your marketing plan, your passion. You also need Pro Forma Financials [Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement] to see if your plan is viable. How much revenue do you expect? What is this based on? What are your expected fixed and variable expenses to support this revenue? How do you record your investment? What fixed assets do you need? Do you have enough cash and how do you keep it flowing? When we build your Pro Forma Financials, you will see when your business is planned to be profitable. You will see, understand and use your business plan and your Pro Forma Financials as they work together. [100-150min]

Your Speaking Voice; Why we Should Care How we Sound – Your voice is the primary link between you and your listeners. We tend to judge people to some extent by their voices. A good controlled voice is an asset in every contact with others. Learn the qualities of a good speaking voice, and learn to control and use your airstream power source of your breath to enhance and add authority to your voice. Your audience will appreciate and be engaged as they will hear every word as you articulate and breathe.
