GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED! FAQ's
A. Definitely not. Although we offer an in-depth, and highly regarded, series of construction and job-cost accounting training classes for QuickBooks users, this program is NOT designed to show you "how to set up your QuickBooks software."
This IS a course to help you understand which financial reports, procedures, and controls you need to run your business. You'll learn:
> Who should provide you with these key-management-level financial reports.
> What they should look like.
> How often you should receive and review them, and
> What you should do with the information.
This will empower you to make a REAL change in the way you do business – and in your ultimate profitability.
When you went into business, you likely anticipated that you'd receive these kinds of insights from your CPA but, if you're like 95-98% of the clients I've worked with over the last 24 years, you haven't.
A. Absolutely not! This program is specifically designed for construction business owners and managers who have had little or no accounting or bookkeeping training.
I'll "de-mystify" the typical accounting jargon - so that you can easily understand what this information means - in plain English.
A. Another way to ask this question might be "Is there any homework involved?"
The answer is "No."
However, I'll provide additional resources to help you learn even more about the concepts provided within the videos and coaching sessions.
You can decide how much, or how little, of this information you want to pursue...
A. I will invite you to attend, and participate in, up to TWO live, 90-minute coaching and Q&A sessions each month.
A. I want to make these interesting and meaningful for you! I'll start with a very brief review of the info provided in the three recordings provided for the month. Then we will "open the floor" so that you can get your questions answered AND participate in group polls and discussions. You'll be able to contribute to, and hear from, your peers!
A. No, it isn't necessary - but, if you can, I think you'll want to! I've designed these live sessions to help you reinforce, at a high level, the information from the recorded program, and to answer any of your real-life, in-the-trenches questions.
Perhaps more importantly, I will be there to offer insights, stories, ideas, and to provide you with an opportunity to see and hear what your peers have to say about the topics we're covering! (I'm even anticipating some FUN and prizes along the way!)
A. Each of the live sessions will be recorded, then stored in your portal, within 24-48 hours following the meeting. That means that you'll be able to easily watch or listen (24/7) at your convenience.
A. Fall behind? Fall behind? You'll be so engrossed and excited about the information you're learning that you won't even consider falling behind!
LOL - But just in case you DO fall behind, we've got you covered. Every video and Q&A/coaching session will be recorded – and available to you 24/7. This will help you in two ways:
- If you miss a session, you'll always be able to go back and watch it.
- Sometimes we need to hear something two or three times before it really sinks in. Because every session is recorded you'll be able to re-visit the info as many times as you need.
- People with busy lives can get distracted - even when they're in the middle of a fantastic movie! That's why the ability for a re-run can be really helpful...
