More often than not when I start to work with clients on raising money for their business, their Quickbooks is a MESS and there is no way for us to move forward until it gets cleaned up. Sometimes it never does. It is so daunting to go back and fix the past. But what IF this didn't have to be your story about your financial tracking? What if we just set up your Quickbooks CORRECTLY from the start for YOUR packaged food business?I have teamed up with my new favorite consultant, Kira of Heritage Bookkeeping, to deliver an AMAZING Quickbooks workshop to do just this. ✅ Which Quickbooks Account is right for you and how much will it cost ✅ How to edit and set up a chart of accounts for a packaged food business with a easy cheat sheet ✅ How to set up your invoices to make your life easier and reconcile them correctly (this is where I see my clients do it WRONG a lot) ✅ How and when to create a memo vs a refund ✅ Recording and reconciling bank transactions ✅ Why we don't use the inventory function or cash flow function in QB ✅ How to run and read P&L and Balance Sheet reports (and use them to help you in your business)AND as a special bonus I have included my Cash Flow training and tracking tool.
Ready to get your product in front of buyers? Make sure you have a professional, great looking sell sheet, a spreadsheet with all the information required by different grocery stores including pallet size and weight, barcodes and MSRP. This is for two page sell sheet recommended for 1 - 6 products. Additional products will require additional pages like a 4-page booklet. There will be an additional cost for additional pages. You can email [email protected] and let me know the number of products you have.
Ready to move into wholesale and larger retail? Don't risk throwing hundreds of dollars in the trash for non-compliant labels (let alone potential fines). I have seen it happen. More than once. Invest in a label review that includes FDA compliance for layout, nutrition facts panel, claims, barcodes and more. I also include a messaging and branding review based on my years of experience helping products leap off the shelf into customers hands. A label review is for one type of product and up to three varieties. For example, you make a jam with multiple flavors. Additional varieties are $50 each. Includes a 30 minute call to review my recommendations.
Knowing your numbers and being able to make better decisions during this time is crucial to staying in business! You MUST have a rolling cash flow to know exactly when you need to borrow money or even close the doors. We will also discuss the difference between cash flow and profitability and ways you can increase your cash flow during this crucial time.
