The Importance Of Preparing Regular Financial Statements

Episode 16


About The Show

Many business owners look at preparing financial statements as something you have to do at tax time to satisfy government regulation.

This couldn’t be further from the truth and in fact, the businesses that adopt this approach of only looking at their financial statements once a year are missing out on a huge amount of opportunity and also playing with fire.

Financial statements are like the Dashboard and GPS in your car.

I'll be honest with you the thought of going into Word Press used to frighten me.

Not only did I find it confusing and difficult to understand, but the time it would take to get things how I wanted,  coupled with the thought of breaking something was all too much.

I discovered Elementor, which is essentially a drag and drop page builder for Word Press and it's been a game changer for me.

It's how I have built this site and in fact this very post you are reading now.

Elementor is simple to install and operate. It's a simple Word Press plug-in that you can have up and running and start creating and building your site in no time.

I have found the Elementor Support Community to be the best value because you get access to all their professionally designed themes as well so you can really hit the ground running.
