More About the Author

Tage (pronounced "Tog", of Scandinavian decent) Tracy has operated a financial consulting service firm during the past twenty (20) years focused on providing executive level accounting, financial, & strategic business planning management support on a project or interim basis. Tage's extensive knowledge and expertise gained from his consulting work has provided the basic framework and knowledge to co-author four books with his Father, retired professor John A. Tracy, titled How to Read a Financial Report - Enhanced Version (set for release January 2014), Cash Flow for Dummies (released in November of 2011), Small Business Financial Management Kit for Dummies (released in August of 2007) and How to Manage Profit & Cash Flow (released in August of 2004). John A. Tracy has previously authored successful business books including How to Read a Financial Report and Accounting for Dummies.

All of these books have been specifically designed and structured to assist not only accounting and financial types with broadening their understanding but more importantly, to provide content for the vast number of non-accounting/financial types that what to improve their knowledge with this type of subject matter (which is often foreign, confusing, and frustrating to grasp). So whether the message is delivered via one of the aforementioned books, directly by Tage from his consulting firm, or in mass through retaining Tage for seminars, educational events, and/or training requirements, the goal remains the same:

TRANSLATE COMPLEX & CONFUSING ACCOUNTING & FINANCIAL TOPICS into SIMPLE & EASY to USE BUSINESS TOOLS EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND!

Tage's areas of expertise within his consulting firm include mergers & acquisitions ($90 million of closed transactions since mid 2012), capital resource, liquidity, and cash flow management, business valuations, accounting system design/structuring, risk management strategies, financial structure & resources, strategic planning, debt and equity sources, company restructuring and turnaround strategies, litigation support, company termination/liquidations plans, and similar issues (reach directly at tcttmk@tracyandtracybooks.com).

This is a great book for anyone who's thinking about starting their own business. It covers the financial management aspect of business.

The lessons are all foundational. Every one needs to build their business on some core foundations and this book provides them.

The financial tools like cashflow, income statements and balance sheets are all covered and explained in simple English. Examples are also provided to help follow along. The tables in the examples are also available on the disc provided, easily modifiable to suit your own business.

Some readers might not like dummies book because they lack depth. This is not the case with this book. Also, if you want to learn more on certain aspect, e.g. accounting, you can always get more specialized book. The point of this book is to give readers the essentials they need to know.

This is a valuable book at an affordable price.

Here's the list of contents:
-- Part I: Improving Your Profit, Cash Flow, and Solvency.
Chapter 1: Managing Your Small Business Finances.
Chapter 2: Understanding Your P&L and Profit Performance.
Chapter 3: Getting Up to Speed on Cash Flow from Profit.
Chapter 4: Keeping Your Business Solvent.

I've tried reading this book several times and can only get to chapter 3 without getting completely confused. It is NOT written from the perspective of a new small business owner that has no experience with finances. The examples used are from large company perspectives and the terminology is confusing. I am a college graduate and have worked with finances of a large company as well as my own personal finances so I'm not a financial dummy. It even discusses how "your hired book keeper should be providing you with profit/loss reports on a monthly basis so you can make sure your company is on the right track". Most start up companies owners do their own book keeping so it should show the owner how to do the book keeping in the first place (and what off the shelf products are good for doing that) before assuming they have hired help for that yet.
It does have an index for the terminology and it does have a lot of examples - just really hard to understand how it relates to a start up business with much less than what they show in the examples.

Maybe I missed something, but with the Kindle edition I was hoping the Excel files would be downloadable as well. :(
