Editorial Description

Understanding the basics of accounting can make the difference between success and failure in so many different areas of life.
Financial reports, balance sheets, reconciling bank statements – and the ability to create, interpret and implement them – are all tools we can't afford to ignore.
Large companies and wealthy individuals can afford to hire C.P.A.s and bookkeepers to take care of the details for them. The rest of us, however, have to learn to master the essentials of accounting in order to get ahead in the game.
In ten lessons, you'll not only learn the basics, you'll have the chance to work hand in hand with a qualified instructor to insure you genuinely "get it" before moving on to the next lesson.
We might as well face it, accounting is the language of business. If we can't speak it, read it or understand it, should it come as any surprise that we aren't able to get ahead in the game?
Fortunately, there's no reason that you or your business should have to fall behind any longer. Enrollment is always open, so act now to start getting ahead.
