“Accounting can seem like a boring task without a lot of benefit other than for a tax return, when it is actually the key to ramping up your business,” said Kathy Richards, course instructor. “If you don't have a good financial feedback loop, you can't really know what's going on, and you can't make good decisions about what to stop, start or do more of.”
