THE ESSENTIAL FINANCE HANDBOOK
For Business Owners
Entrepreneurs tend to build businesses around a specific skill or passion. They don’t realise that, as part of the package, they also have to become a sales, marketing, admin and accounting expert.
Entrepreneurship in South Africa has the highest business failure rate in the world, with around 9 of 10 new businesses failing within the first 3 years. One of the key reasons for this excessively high failure rate is that entrepreneurs don’t have the right finance structures, processes and controls in place from the start. This handbook could be just what is needed to change their potential for success in business and – quite possibly – even their lives!
The Essential Finance Handbook For Entrepreneurs is filled with over 200 best-practice strategies for small businesses as well as principals, tips, case studies, templates (more than 30), tools, checklists and action plans to make sure entrepreneurs can implement all you have learned quickly and effectively.
