Financial Literacy for Everyone
Pick up almost any book about financial statements and one of the first things you’ll see is a warning that sounds something like this: “In order to read and understand financial statements, you must first know something about accounting.”
I wrote The Profit Analyst book and online course because this just isn’t true. Reading and understanding financial statements isn’t rocket science. Even if you’ve never heard accounting terms like debits and credits, or terms like accrual, amortization or free cash flow, you can learn about financial statements, and you can learn to create a view of a company’s financial health that benefits you as an investor, a manager, business owner, employee, or student.
In twenty-five brief podcasts, The Profit Analyst Broadcast Series is designed to help listeners become familiar with the language of business and how to read and understand financial statements. Listeners learn how companies make sales, earns profits and generate cash.
Anyone who wants to learn more, and apply what they learn by working with financial documents of real companies, can register free for a limited time in our online Profit Analyst course at openadvance.com.
