Publisher's Summary

If you're looking for a practical audiobook that provides useful knowledge about financial management, then pay attention....

Whether you are running a social enterprise with just two full-time staff members, an Internet start-up, a craft business on Etsy, or a Fortune 500 multinational, you will need to have a good feel for financial management to get the best out of it. 

Are you a small-business owner, student, or a senior manager in another discipline who needs to brush up on financial concepts? If so, this audiobook will explain finance simply and with plenty of real-life examples that make it easy to see how to apply the concepts in practice. 

This audiobook is also concentrated on explaining what the financial figures mean and how to figure out the message they are sending, rather than on how to construct a balance sheet or do an audit. Many trained accountants focus on the "right answers" rather than reading between the lines to see what is going on - this audiobook takes the opposite approach. 

Here are some of the topics that are discussed in this audiobook: 

  • What is financial management and why do you need it?
  • Financial statements
  • Looking at cash flow
  • Forecasting, budgeting, and flex
  • Capital spending and discounted cash flow analysis
  • Some aspects of treasury management
  • Managing your working capital
  • Hedging your bets
  • Management accounting
  • Ratios - your management dashboard
  • A quick look at risk management
  • And much, much more

So, if you want to learn more about financial management in less time compared to reading a tedious textbook, click "Buy Now"!

Very well explained in an easy way.

Financial Management (The Ultimate Guide to Planning, Organizing, Directing, and Controlling the Financial Activities of an Enterprise) acted like a learning springboard for me by providing a foundation for me to read deeper into finance. I love this book.

Gives good reminder on basic finance Management

Interesting book. It gave me some reminders on basic finance management.. I work in a financial related field but not as a financial expert so it was a good way to understand some basic principle.

I needed this book

This was very enjoyable listening. I don't know how the author made finance easy to abridgment but he did. A balance sheet now makes sense to me.

Average for advance users.

Good audiobook but for what was being taught by our professor, it didn't hit the mark like I'd hoped. But still is is basic not for advance users.

Give this book a try.

These book is great for start-up business owners looking for somewhat easy to listen that will support them with the need to know information. If you're just starting out or perhaps you just need to be repeated of the things you already know, give this book a try.

If you are working in Finance Area, follow.

A great starting place to understand the details of finance in a business for the people that do not work in a finance department. I have a much improved grasp on the financial language and what the numbers mean after reading this book.

A must read for every employee.

This audiobook will give you a much better perspective on how finance for companies work and what matters when deciding to work for someone, work on something that will influence the balance sheet or even making an investment in a company. A very good finance book.

For all employees at all levels...

I always try to interruption obstacles and most of my time is spent as an interpreter...truth be told, I’ve always wriggled with translating the financial vernacular...this book did it for me and has assisted me paint a picture and tell the story behind it so everyone understands.

Quick review and refresh

An easy to understand book with understandable info. One does not have to start at the beginning, you can pick and choose chapters without loss of steadiness. Lots of serious advice on instructive paths and how that education might affect your future career path.

Useful when understanding Finance

I am a MBA Finance student and was looking for a good book on it. Someone suggested me about this fabulous audible. I created new accounts got the got and got this top book. I found this book to be really helpful. I skipped some of the middle chapters about journal entries because my class doesn't cover that, but because of the table of contents it's easy to skip around and just select the content that is relevant for you.

The book was very well put together. I'm impressed

If you don't have any background in Accounting and want a simple info on the subject matter, I will suggest this very book is for you. Great thing also, is that you aren't bogged down with Exercise questions as you read- which is what you'd find with an Accounting text book. I got the book on kindle and it was very convenient.
