Accurate and timely books can be critical to success. The IRS, lenders, potential buyers, and good decision making all require good bookkeeping. QuickBooks training can give you a competitive edge by providing you the record keeping tools to track what's working and where you can improve. In this 2 part class, you will learn how to create a company file from scratch; add customers, vendors, products and services; manage and reconcile bank accounts and credit cards. This is a hands-on course held in our computer lab where you will be completing training exercises along with the instructor. A copy of the lab manual in DVD format is yours to keep for future reference.

Topic: Marketing and Sales
No privately-run business - large or small - can realistically claim, "I don't really need a big advantage over my competition for long-term success." This workshop confronts the realism of your market head-on - that creating advantage is essential. We will explore the need to create core competencies that mean something to your customers. And raise market awareness to help you become a strategist - not a run-of-the-mill tactician. The workshop format will be highly participatory.

This workshop will bring together the elements of "Creating Competitive Advantage" and help you grow the roots of your small business's strategic advantage. The central question we will explore is, "With the many forces that effect my business, how do I sustain a market advantage?" We will take a look at what those forces are and also how various firms have succeeded (or not succeeded) in dealing with them. Come prepared to share what market forces impact the viability of your small business - the format will be highly participatory.
