Managing Your Small Business


Do you own a business but you’re not quite sure you are doing everything right when it comes to preparing for taxes? 

Are you thinking about starting a business and you want to know the ins and outs of what is required by the state and the IRS? 

Do you sell a product or service, but you aren’t collecting sales tax? 

Do you pay people to provide services for your business?

If you want to ensure you are prepared in the case of an audit or want to learn more about maximizing write offs and tracking your financial progress, this class if for you.  

Mande’s ‘A Guide to Managing Small Business Finance Class’ was informative and smart in an approachable environment. Wherever you are in the process of owning your own business - concept, first year in or years down the road, this class will help you get and stay organized with best practices on managing your money. Mande walks you through step by step how to organize and categorize your expenses and revenue streams in order to maximize your return on investment!

During this two-hour class, we will discuss the following:

(Each topic will be interactive, giving everyone a chance to ask questions.)

  • Bookkeeping and why it is beneficial

    • Bookkeeping on your own vs contracting a bookkeeper

  • Revenue Tracking

  • Business Expenses vs Personal Expenses

    • What the IRS will allow and what they won’t

  • Sales Tax – what is taxable and what is not taxable

    • Selling products

    • Providing services

  • Employees vs Contractors

  • Audit Possibilities

  • Budgeting & Cash Flow Projections

Mande’s class was an informative and entertaining way to dive into the basics of bookkeeping. As a very young company, bookkeeping is a subject I have found to be intimidating, but after taking this class I felt like I have a better foundation to grow on. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is starting or even thinking of starting a business.
