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.

 Take Your Relationship To The Next Level

Curious about how to deepen your relationship with your romantic partner? Looking to navigate the challenges that love can bring? Gain new understanding and insight into your love life during a free webinar with Susan Bennett Fisher and Martin Fisher, Co-Founders of Body of 9. The Body of 9 offers a comprehensive body-based Identification system to better understand yourself and others.  Like Myer’s Briggs, the Enneagram, or other personality identification systems, Body of 9 enables you to better understand who you are and what your strengths and skills are.  Body of 9 differs in that it is body-based – it is the shape, tone, energy of your body that tells you which of the “types” you are. 
February’s free webinar events will be held on February 20 and 23. To learn more and to register, click here: https://bodyof9.com/2021-webinar-series/
