Financial Statements 101 | Taught By Bloom Bookkeeping


You probably didn’t get into business because you love crunching numbers, but, somewhere along the way you’ve also probably realized that understanding your businesses finances can help you grow exponentially.

If your financial statements look like a foreign language to you, you’re missing out on a valuable opportunity to better understand how you can grow your business!

In this class Lara Pieper, the owner of Bloom Bookkeeping, will be breaking down common business financial statements to bring you clarity. You can expect to learn why balance sheets + profit and loss statements are used as well as what valuable information you can get out of them.
