If you're like many small business owners, the mere mention of the word "accounting" fills you with the same sense of dread you had back in high school the night before a big math test. But your company may be at risk of failing, not due to the realities and challenges of the marketplace, but because you are uncomfortable reading and using basic financial measurements. However, never fear. By the time you've finished Accounting for the Numberphobic, you'll be reading your financial dashboard like a pro. This audiobook takes the terror out of accounting, as it demystifies - in plain English - documents like the Net Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement, and Balance Sheet. Illustrated with real-world examples and packed with practical action steps, the book reveals:
As a business owner, you can't make responsible decisions if you don't understand the financial measurements that indicate the health of your business. This book takes the fear out of the numbers, and empowers you to steer your way straight toward profitability.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

"Anyone who runs or owns a small business should know what's in Accounting for the Numberphobic. If they're willing to learn what Dawn skillfully lays out in this book they will be more successful. Period." (Rich DeVos Sr., Cofounder of Amway and Senior Chairman of the NBA Orlando Magic)
I was really happy with the information covered on accounting in this book. I've listen to and read several books on the subject to learn about balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow. This book did a good job of introducing the subject in an easy to understand way. You won't be a certified CPA when you finish but you'll be able to have an educated conversation with yours when your done.
Be sure to check out the PDF that comes with the book. Also, be aware that, if you're like me, you may need to hit that rewind button quite a bit. Sometimes it's tough to keep up with the formulas in your head. Still, I'm very glad they turned this into an audiobook.
I found it while searching the audible app
The overall clear description of financial statements, break even point and lots of different concepts that many books make overly confusing
Great voice and clear articulation
It should be digested in a few sitting and listened to a few times, as it is equivalent to a graduate level course in accounting
Great book for any and every business owner. This is good for business owners at all levels and great for any one about to enter a MBA program, or graduate business degree
Yes, because the book gives the right tools, to understand the jargon of the financial statements and gives good advices for the non accounting professionals.
I loved her voice tone and the reading speed.
Yes it was
Even though i'm an accountant, i chose this book, because i'm a native Spanish speaker and i want to learn the accounting terms and this book fulfills my goal. and gives good advice to all entrepreneur with no financial background.
I just finished it and I'm staying back at the beginning again. I've been sending the link to this book to all of my entrepreneur friends.
I bought 2 accounting books and this one knocks it out of the park. Its got an explanation on all the tools small business owners need to survive, manage and make profit. Highly recommended
Very informative. some of the material required a second listen due to lingo being used before an explanation of the words. I couldn't complain about anything really other than that.
loved it everything was in simple language it broke down the entire income statement balance sheet. She gave examples of changes in different aspects of the company's financial statement. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, even someone doing personal financial management.
Dawn for content and Karen for voice and energy
It seems that her voice was uniquely matched to this content
