Why Buy ?
It benefits us both. A good deal is when everybody wins. You win by getting an excellent introductory accounting and bookkeeping reference, and I win by getting funds to help support development of additional bookkeeping and accounting tutorials and tools.
I'm one of the little guys and appreciate any and all support !
For a little fun, watch my video Why Buy ?
Have you ever wondered -
- What those terms used in the financial world actually mean?
- What exactly are those financial statements telling ya?
- If you have a bookkeeper, is he or she performing their duties proficiently?
- What those accounting and bookkeeping software programs are actually doing "behind the scenes"?
My interactive bookkeeping and accounting tutorials are designed to blend in a little humor while at the same time providing you with a good basic bookkeeping and accounting educational foundation. No, you won't be able to pass the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) exam; but, you will at least be able to discuss financial matters intelligently and know what is actually involved when performing bookkeeping and accounting activities.
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Well my goal is to make you dangerous.
So, if you want to or need to learn the basics of bookkeeping these tutorials are for you.
