Overall, a good overview of basic account and investment process, but the professor does not provide enough practical exercises to properly grasp the content.

I needed to prepare plans and reports to present to potential investors. I didn't like the thought of hiring someone to do it for me because no one knows my business as well I do. I found Chris' course to be very helpful in teaching me what I needed for a successful outcome.

When my business partner/CFO retired, I had to make a tough decision. He had been in charge of our company's finances since we began several years ago. I wasn't prepared to blindly hand over the responsibility without having first- hand knowledge of finances. I also wasn't prepared to go back to college. I was very pleased to find that Chris was able to provide such a wide-ranging course. It helped make the transition to a new CFO go much smoother.

Serendipitous discovery. I was sitting at my desk, doing a job I wasn't happy doing. I had dreamed of owning my own business, but my financial ability was lacking. Finding Chris's course turned my life around. The program allowed me to learn at my own pace, and review as often as I needed. Thank you Chris. I would writing someone else's documents instead of writing my own business plan if it weren't for your amazing course.

When I first told my husband I was starting a business from home, he told me, "If it's not making money, it's just a hobby." I immediately went on a search to find the skills to keep my business from being a hobby. Thank you Chris!

I had the basic knowledge of accounting, but was ready to take on investors. Chris laid out exactly how to take inventory of my business's worth, how much money I would need, and how to create the presentation before speaking to investors. He teaches in a visual way that made the whole process much easier than I feared it would be.

Before I started this course I didn't know my asset from a hole in the ground. My network marketing business was going nowhere fast. My downlines were building, but I wasn't holding onto the money coming in. Chris helped me understand that I needed to do more than rock my sales. I needed to know how to run my business. I now know how much inventory to order, and how to keep a steady cash flow going. Chris you rock!!
