Proper bookkeeping should be at the top of an entrepreneur’s to-do list, because failing to keep good records can have significant legal and economic consequences for a company, and can even hurt the company’s chances of raising capital. Guest speaker Leslie Jorgensen of Supporting Strategies (http://www.linkedin.com/in/lesliejorgensen) will discuss the fundamentals of proper bookkeeping and how to develop good bookkeeping habits.
The topics for this seminar include:
• Segregating Business and Personal Accounts
• Bookkeeping and Taxes
• Cash v. Accrual Accounting
• Standard Financial Reports
• Closing the Books Each Month
• How Bookkeeping Can Impact Raising Capital
Leslie has been providing operational support to small businesses since 1997, including development and implementation of support infrastructure for several start-up organizations.
