"The Overcoming Finance Obstacles for Entrepreneurs class is a must-take class for any person working in small business. I am not an entrepreneur but I work in a small business, and I think it is beyond beneficial to take this course. I was able to expand on topics that I had a base-line knowledge of and learn new concepts that I am already able to apply to the business. As an instructor, Nesha was fantastic and very easy to listen to. She broke down the material in a way that made sense and was applicable to the business I am representing. I would love to take another masterclass by her."

I can’t wait for you to join Overcoming Finance Obstacles for Entrepreneurs
The pandemic showed me how vulnerable and stuck business owners felt. They were drowning trying to understand everything they needed to get the PPP loans, and what all was available to them. They didn't understand the terminology of Schedule C, Form 1040, Profit & Loss statement. Most didn't have this information readily available and missed out on free money.
THEY WERE SCARED. I jumped in to educate and help these owners stay afloat. This was the last straw for me.
But, this isn't just around the time of the pandemic, this is every single day.
Over the course of my 30 years as a CPA, I have seen so many business owners be taken advantage of and businesses fail because the owner didn't even have a basic understanding of the finance part. If you want to get control of your finances and have greater money management, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
I invite you to join me for Finance Basics 101 for Entrepreneurs, where I can help you create a solid foundation for the business of your dreams.
Your business = Your freedom!
