As a small business owner, knowing where your money comes from and where it goes is vital to your success. As a student of accounting, understanding debits and credits is the basis of all your further study. Wouldn't it be helpful to have a simple primer on these lessons, written in plain English?
In Easy Accounting, practicing accountant, teacher, and author Becky Egan demystifies and simplifies the accounting process, clearly articulating the basics before gently adding layers to build on this knowledge.
With more than 10 years' experience training clients, Egan holds your hand in Easy Accounting for the whole journey, from creating Balance Sheets and Income Statements to more advanced topics such as Depreciation, Mezzanine Accounts, and Inventory Management. These lessons are then reinforced with exercises, examples, and, helpfully, the answers.
Egan loves Accounting - her love for the subject shines through in her engaging and easy style - and the financial acumen and freedom it bestows to its disciples.
You will be inspired by your own financial know-how, which is of course the big goal. But you will also be amazed at the therapeutic benefits - and satisfaction - to be gleaned from balancing the dollars and cents.
To sum up in Egan's words: "Realize, that when your books are balanced, every debit matches a credit, the Assets equal the Liabilities and Equity, and there is a harmony in the universe. How many other areas in your life tie out this neatly?"
