Recent Review:
Sam T. says “Great course for retail businesses.  I own a small clothing store and while I know we make money I never really knew how to actually figure out how much or how to plan.  This course answered both those questions for me.  Now I can make better business decisions.  Definitely recommend the course.”

Why You Should Take This Course: 
Retail businesses often run very day to day, without much planning for the future.  As well cash flow is always an issue, making sure there is enough in the bank to pay suppliers, your staff, yourself, and more.  It can definitely be a struggle at times, and where the money has come in and gone to can be a bit of a mystery over time.  Take control and let it be a mystery no more!  Start planning, forecasting and budgeting today with this course. 
Become a cash flow budgeting and forecasting pro!
This course is 100% in Microsoft Excel, showing you from start to finish how to build a proper budget and forecast for your small business retail store.  We start with a blank Excel workbook, and will build the proper structure, formatting, formulas so that you can plan ahead for the future of your company, whether that is next week, month or the entire coming year.

You will be able to see where your money comes in, where it goes out and at the end of the day/month/year where you will stand.  This is most powerful if you compare what you are planning to what you actually achieve. 
As well I provide the template we build in the course for you to download! If you don’t have the time or desire to build your own forecast, you can simply use the budget and forecast we build in the course and modify it to meet your needs.  

What We Do In The Course:  

•Start with a blank Excel workbook which will become your budget and forecast
•Build the proper structure for a budget and forecast
•Format the spreadsheet so it is easy to read and follow
•Place formulas in to calculate totals where appropriate
•Create a summary tab to show overall totals
•Show you how to track your actual results against the forecast and budget
•Teach you how to then use that information to make informed decisions about your business
•And Much More!!!
At any point if you have a question, please feel free to ask through the course forum, I’d be happy to answer any and all questions.
