1 hour 30 minutes
Understanding and managing cash flow in your business is critical to your success.
A balance sheet is often described as a snapshot of your financial situation at a single point in time. Think of it as the balance in your personal checking account. An income statement summarizes revenue, expenses, and net income for the entire year or another period of time.
