Financial Management Credit Clinic For Your Business

FREE 3-Week Online Module Program 

Starts Thursday, February 15th, 2PM – 3PM!

We all know as entrepreneurs that starting a small business has its fair share of challenges, especially in our current economy. Many of us without a financial background might miss out on big opportunities due to a lack of information or knowledge, minimizing potential business success and potentially putting our companies at security risk. This credit clinic will give small business owners the tools to help foster growth and safeguard their businesses.

Our virtual “boot camp” consists of three (3) online modules respectively focused on managing finances, forecasting sales projects, and understanding and improving business credit. These three sessions will address the importance of understanding and modeling financial information that can be used to support business owners who might not have a financial background to aim for higher levels of success.

SCHEDULE:

During each hour module, the included learning objectives will target actionable and achievable outcomes. Virtual handouts will be provided to assist in implementing the tactics reviewed during each presentation and participants will receive hands-on experience using Excel and navigating the Federal Trade Commission website.
