This course can serve as a very fundamental basis of business writing. By learning about the frame, I can better learn by myself in the future.

This basic course gives me an overview of bookkeeping, before I think of jumping into the actual work of doing my own accounts for my business. It helps me think of whether I will need to hire an accountant or not. It motivated me to continue to learn more about doing my own books.
