About This Class

Business Projections are a key component of building a successful business for any business owner or entrepreneur.  

The common misconception is that you need to be a math whiz, spreadsheet jock or have an MBA to successfully complete a business projection.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

You do need to think logically, be well organized and prepared to critically examine the key components and variables that surround your business.  Otherwise, the ability to add and subtract are all the math you need!

People who have started a business but are unfamiliar with financial modeling or our thinking about starting a business and want to plan for the future should take this class.

Finally, I have found a very clear explanation on how to build and represent "projections" part of BP. The part where everything is vague. A great example was used and it was very easy to use the template. Thank you, Prof. Burns.
Great straight to the point overview of the entire process which will give you a solid idea of the core concepts
