QuickBooks classes can help you to both understand QuickBooks better and understand how to better answer the following questions:
- What is the minimum I can charge?
- What products or services make me the most money?
- What products or services make me the least money?
- How much money does my marketing/rep make me?
- What is my target market?
- How much should I markup my services?
- When do I increase/reduce my workforce?
- How many people does this project need?
- What equipment does this project need?
- What/How much material does this project need?
- What parts of production are not meeting the budget?
- Do I waste time driving?
- Am I making money on that job?
- Who should I pay first?
The answers come much easier when you understand how QuickBooks really works. I focus my QuickBooks classes on training business owners to use QuickBooks to answer these questions.
- Who can I pay?
- How can I get money today?
- How do I avoid taxes?
- When should I buy new equipment/tools?
- How do I get out of debt?
- How do I get more cash?
- Is anyone getting overtime pay?
- Can I get my products for less?
- How much do I need to sell to break even?
- What do different divisions make?
- What do different divisions cost?
- How much can I pay myself?
- How much can I pay a new employee?
- Should I drop this service/product?
- Will this investment (new equipment, outsourcing, new product/service, etc.) make me more money?
I am doing a research project for my QuickBooks classes and need your help. If you own a business and any of the above questions are crucial for you to know the answer to in order to successfully run your business, please click here to take a two minute survey.
With the results, I will be developing processes for the most popular questions to help managers be able to have these answers in a timely and cost effective manner.
Thanks for your help,
