The Southeastern Connecticut chapter of SCORE, Mentors to America’s Small Businesses, will present a free Small Business Workshop with Intuit ProAdvisor Elizabeth Santaus on “How to use QuickBooks™ to Manage Your Business Finances (I).”

You have started your own business. Now what? You have bills to pay, customer sales to track, and taxes to file which requires paper, paper, and more paper. If you have turned to QuickBooks™ for help as a first-time user, and now you find you would like help with setting up the program, this SCORE Workshop is for you!

This workshop will provide guidance and practical, easy-to-use tips to help ensure that your Chart of Accounts gets you to the right financial information, and that it aligns with your use of QuickBooks.  Participants are welcome to bring a laptop with QuickBooks™ loaded so they can follow along with the presenter.
