About This Class

A class on creating a simple sales budget for my series on Retail Management concepts explained simply.

The purpose of a budget is to come up with an achievable plan that also sets expectations on how much you plan to make for the budgeting period.

This class aims to give an overview on how to create a simple sales budget primarily for physical products that can also be applied to digital or service products.

If you would like to see how adding returns to this budget would affect the margin value, go to and fill in your details to receive access to the video

A sales budget is a plan that tells you what direction to head in and acts as a reference document that sets sales expectations for a business.

This class can be watched in conjunction with my sales forecasting class

To be honest, the class topic is not really my cup of tea, but because I have seen Ole share so much of her kindness on this platform, I wanted to take this class.

On top of everything else, Ole has a wonderful warm voice that is very enjoyable to listen to.
