Forecast For Success
With Shonda Feather
Forecasting isn’t just for large companies - it’s for small businesses too! Business forecasting is an important element of a successful business. It means looking at your past and present sales data and weighing that against marketplace trends to plan for a specific period.
In this class, you’ll learn how to plan ahead and predict your company’s future financial performance. You’ll learn how to gauge how much revenue you’ll potentially earn in a particular period and plan for big expenses.
Students in this class will also receive Shonda’s forecasting spreadsheets in Excel or Numbers.
