Practical Accounting – Beginners, Founders & Business Owners
All Startup founders and business owners, executives must get a basic understanding of finance and accounting to enable themselves to be able to read financial statements, analyze results and the impact of their business decisions.
This course was recorded during a live class with startup founders who do not have any formal background in accounting and finance. Course contents, speed, and explanations are designed keeping in mind those users, hence other users may find it slow and sometimes repetitive. I repeated a few things just to make my audience understand and absorb concepts.
