As a business owner, cash flow is one of, if not THE, most important aspect of your company.  Cash is King as they say! Learn how to track your cash flow using the Statement of Cash Flows, and gain a better understanding of where the money is coming from and where it is going.

In this course we will go through an entire Statement of Cash Flows so you can understand each section.  Not just what is included, but how numbers are interpreted and why certain line items exist.  By the end of the course you will be an expert at reading cash flow statements!

By the end of this course, you will feel empowered and ahead of the pack!


Chris Benjamin, MBA & CFO is a seasoned professional with over 20 years experience in accounting and finance.  Having spent the first 10 years of my career in corporate settings with both large and small companies, I learned a lot about the accounting process, managing accounting departments, financial reporting, external reporting to board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and working with external auditors.  

The following 10+ years I decided to go into CFO Consulting, working with growing companies and bringing CFO level experience to companies.  I help implement proper best business practices in accounting and finance, consult on implementation of accounting systems, implementing accounting procedures, while also still fulfilling the CFO roll for many of my clients which includes financial reporting, auditing, working with investors, financial analysis and much more.  

Thank you for signing up for this course. I look forward to being your instructor for this course and many more!
