Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to run your business – instead of letting your business run you? Putting together a reasonable set of projections and using it to navigate your path into the future sounds great – but it can be a daunting task, far outside of the comfort zone of today’s owner/operator. Eliminate the guesswork & uncertainty as we take a deep dive into:

  • Understanding the basics of financial reporting and your historical performance
  • Mapping an appropriate & reasonable path forward
  • Translating your projections into a financial model
  • Using your plan to track performance & hold yourself accountable

We understand you didn’t decide to start your business to sit in the office & play in Excel, but that doesn’t diminish the value of knowing where you’re going – and how to get there. Join Maine SBDC at CEI Center Director Raynor Large in building the map that’s right for you & your business. He’ll be leading business owners through collecting and organizing crucial financial information and provide tips and tools to move forward successfully with the data compiled throughout the series.
