DFW WBC QuickBooks Online Training Series (4-days)

November 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - November 11, 2020 @ 7:30 pm
Join the LiftFund DFW Women’s Business Center for a 4-part series that will teach you how to set-up and use QuickBooks Online software.

All businesses start with the intention of becoming successful, and most of those businesses start with a product or service that could get them there, but after a few years, many of those same businesses struggle to find success. One main reasons is the lack of proper recordkeeping. Accurate bookkeeping will better enable you, the business owner, to reduce taxes, improve cash flow and increase profits. QuickBooks is the number one accounting software used by small business owners.

This QuickBooks Online Training Series will teach you proper bookkeeping workflows that lead to accurate financial records. At the end of the course, you will be better prepared for everything from tax preparation, to business loan applications to the PPP loan forgiveness program. Marcia Donaldson, founder of Donaldson Financial Services has 30+ years of accounting experience and is an Advanced Certified ProAdvisor for QuickBooks Online.
