HCC Offers Workshop on Understanding Financial Statements

The Small Business Center of Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar entitled, “Understand Financial Statements…for the Non-Accountant” on Tuesday, February 13, from 6-9 p.m. on campus in the Student Center building. Financial statements show past and projected finances. The business owner who takes the time to understand and evaluate the business venture through financial statements over the life of the business will be far ahead of the entrepreneur who is only concerned with the product or service. This workshop will provide a forum for discussing the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow and determining which is the most important.

You will also learn what information you can use to measure your success and how financial statements can help you make better business decisions. The presenter is Harry Ponder, founder of Carolina Business Services, Weaverville, N.C., a business solutions company specializing in business planning, supervisory and management development. To preregister for this free seminar, call the Small Business Center at 627 4512.
