Accounting is More Than Numbers
Accounting could date back to about 7,000 years ago. People of that time relied on old accounting methods to record the growth of crops and herds. Accounting has greatly developed with the growth of joint-stock companies.
When you think of accounting, you may find pages of tables and numbers. That image doesn’t usually give you too much excitement. When you have your own business, though, those numbers come to mean the world to you because they give you the record of how much money you’ve earned or lost.
Actually, accounting is not simply about strange dollar amounts or boring numbers; they’re your sales figures, your costs, and your profits. In other words, accounting is a language of business. Once you know how to work with those numbers, how to read those numbers and how to read the story they tell, you will be able to manage your business toward greater success.
