Bozeman’s Public Library,
Chamber of Commerce,
and Economic Development Office

Noon‐1:15pm on Thursday May 13 via Zoom. Register here:

Presented By Jody Seibert, Fix Your Accounting, LLC (and BPW Member!)

It’s not your skill set, it’s not your focus, and it’s bigger and meaner than the
monster under your bed. If you worry about your accounting methods,
financial reports, or how responsible and accountable you really are, this
workshop is for you. How do you know if you should hire an outside
accountant or bookkeeper? How about accounting software—which? Can you really do it all yourself?

Taught by an accountant with over 20 years of experience working with problem‐plagued small businesses,

Jody will work through basic must‐haves, the logical succession of accounting systems, the information you
must have to run your business, and the responsibilities you absolutely cannot abdicate.
