Money & Life: Demystifying Financial Statements for Small Business Owners


Everything you wanted to know about financial statements but were afraid to ask. For new and old business owners ... and the curious.

Are You Afraid of Your Financial Statements?

I have spent a lot of time with business owners over the past 29 years and realized that many have a great instinct for business and are usually very successful. They get very excited when they talked about the product or service they are selling. But when the topic changed to the financial end of the business most got very quiet and uncomfortable.

Most when questioned about the financial statements will say, "I am not really interested in that stuff, I have people in my office who knows that stuff'. The truth is YOU need to know that stuff...it's critical, because if you don't, you are a sitting duck waiting to be taken advantage of.

In these challenging economic times, the importance of learning how to read a financial statement is a business imperative. As such, we have decided that this is an important 'Life' skill that should be offered at The ACADEMi of Life.

So we are including this service in our Life & Money series. We will offer private one on one session for business owners to sit down with us and ask ANY question they want without feeling the pressure of judgment from their peers. How many workshops, courses, and webinars have you attended on this subject, yet you walk away with unanswered questions! There are NO stupid questions in these sessions. This is a judgment free environment.

Register today for this important and valuable life skill.

Sessions offered Monday-Friday between the hours of 12pm - 7:00 pm for 90 minutes per session for the price of $349.00. Once you register you can schedule date and time.

How To Free The Writer In You

Everything in your life, from the mundane to the extraordinary, is a story waiting to be told. Many of us want to leave behind a record of our lives that we were here. Yes, our footprint.

In this memorable workshop, you will discover your own unique and powerful story. We will use the memoir form of writing to encourage you to live out loud and to help you comprehend the value of your life. “If you are not afraid of the voices in you, you will not fear the critics outside you,” so says Natalie Goldberg. Writing can let you hear your voice above the critics.

Did you know that there were health benefits to writing? There is recent evidence to support the claim that increased intellectual activity and brain stimulation i.e. recording one’s memories can lower the individual risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Through fun exercises, practical techniques and group discussion, this insightful, fun and practical workshop, will help you uncover the writer hiding in you. You'll get tips, skills and encouragement in this powerful workshop. You will also find your authentic voice, along with a way to express it. And you’ll be surprised at how great a writer you can become.

We will also share how to become a published writer. You’ll learn all about the publishing industry from writing a query letter to finding a publisher.

Bring your favorite pen and a writing journal. All levels welcome.

I don't think everyone wants to create the great American novel, but we all have a dream of telling our stories-of realizing what we think, feel, and see before we die. Writing is a path to meet ourselves and become intimate.”  - Natalie Goldberg

The Power of Positive Psychology

What is Positive Psychology?

According to Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman, Director of the University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center and a leading authority in the field of Positive Psychology:

 “Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.”

Even when things are going well many of us carry a constant inner dialogue that tends to be self-deprecating. Even if we exercise self-discipline in our diet and exercise, we rarely consider discipline of thought as a way to enhance our emotional health and well being. Yet, much of our personal freedom is blocked by negative thought patterns and beliefs.

Studies show that high school students who deprioritize their happiness to gain admission to top colleges are adopting harmful life habits that have led to a "mental health crises" on college campuses.  A 2013 report by the Yale College Council found that more than half of undergraduates sought mental health care from the university during their time there.

Numerous studies have also shown that nurturing positive skills can help pull people out of depression, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts.

Using positive psychology as the foundation for this workshop, we will cover the use of positive thinking to help us make peace with the past, seek contentment in the present moment and acknowledge a hopeful future.

Some of the happiness habits and tools you will learn:

  •  Methods for controlling and changing our thoughts and behavior to become more positive
  • Necessary steps to creating the balance that is right for us in our lives
  • How to deal with pessimistic people and negative situations
  • How to break negative patterns of thinking that are self-defeating
  • Tips to live mindfully

Who should attend:

  • Parents and their high school children
  • Teachers, school counselors and camp couselors
  • Anyone wanting to learn valuable happiness habits

Join us as we share proven tools to foster more well-being in your life and at work by being more positive, more engaged, have better relationships, find more meaning and accomplish more. Come explore ways to have a more positive mind-set.

“Every business and personal outcomes show improvement when the brain is positive. Training your brain to be positive is not so different from training your muscles at the gym.” –Shawn Achor
