Growing Entrepreneurs Who Know Business Numbers & How To Use Xero
You want your children – those who are budding entrepreneurs, and those who aren’t – to do well in their career, or even in their own business (or both), don’t you?! But you know they need some business knowledge for that to happen. Here’s the course combination to get them started building that knowledge base.
We’ve combined our Jack’s Kids course, with our Xero High Cool course, and we’ve thrown in Get Xero Set-up and Get Xero Speed for good measure. This combination gives them the basics in accounting and business, then adds in Xero software training – just like they teach in high school. Then there are the Get Xero courses to reinforce this.
Here’s a brief description of each course (further details are under the courses themselves):
- Jack’s Kids – this course is based around business and accounting conversations between Jack (of beanstalk fame) and his two kids, who both want to set up a business while still at school. There are Discussion papers, followed by Examples (based on the business of one of the children), then Exercises (based on the business of the other child). Answers are, of course, provided.
- Xero High Cool – a comprehensive course teaching your student how to use Xero, including an In-depth Exercise to start, followed by a short Bonus Exercise, and Four more Exercises, and then a Test. Answers are, again, provided.
- Get Xero Set-up – this course is based around a series of short videos, totaling less than an hour, all about setting a business up in Xero. After each clip, your student can practice what they have learned in the Xero company provided.
- Get Xero Speed – another video-based course, with accompanying Xero company to practice in, this time teaching tips and tricks to get your student up to speed. The videos again total less than an hour.
I have worked in a variety of industries – from retail to printing, an international airline to a government health enterprise – and in organisations of various sizes – from global engineering giant to boutique accounting firm.
My roles have encompassed financial and management accounting, company and tax accounting, finance and operations management. My focus has always been on improvement – processes, my role, results – whatever I could do to contribute to bettering the organisation.
I’ve worked closely with Medical Professionals from various specialities, Engineers, Logistics professionals, Printers, Manufacturing specialists, Retail gurus, and clients from all over the spectrum – and, yes, I’ve tried to make things better for all of them.
