Running a business isn’t all about the products or services you provide. That’s only one part of the whole picture. Numbers have a huge role too — after all, they’re everywhere and they’re vital.

Numbers support and define your metrics, your goals — how else would you know you’re meeting them if you don’t have a record? Then you throw in your income and expenses, just to start, things which delineate the financial health of your enterprise…The list goes on.

Numbers are important. Don’t let math-phobia and lack of a business degree stop you from learning to read the numbers. Knowing how to read your financial papers is part of the costs, and strengths, of running a business.

Accounting Coach.com is one free online resource that can help you with the numbers. The goal of the people running the site is “to make accounting information available for free to everybody on the planet 24/7. Whether you are a student or business person, we know how difficult accounting can be. That’s why we have spent so much time making this alternative resource available to you for free.”

And boy do they deliver. Continue reading Accountingcoach.com and Personal MBA’s
