RALEIGH, N.C. - Aug. 21, 2014 - PRLog -- RALEIGH, NC – Erin Cohen, President of National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Greater Raleigh, announced that NAWBO will host a financial workshop led by Jess McLamb, Founder and President of Roper Bookkeeping, entitled “Developing Your Financial Dashboard”.  This mentoring workshop is open to both members and guests and will be held at The Roper Group, 242 W. Millbrook Rd. in Raleigh from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  Registration is $10 for members and $15 for non-members.

“Developing Your Financial Dashboard” outlines how businesses can begin using metrics to determine if they are on track with their financial goals. Metrics are specific numbers that may be related to business financial data, marketing, sales and/or operations. A Financial Dashboard is a one-page view of the specific metrics that you determine are important to track in your business. In this workshop, business owners will learn how to create a dashboard to track the key metrics for sound financial decisions and business growth.

Jess Roper McLamb is a Certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor and helps business owners create the financial information they need to make sound business decisions. For 20 years, she has worked with attorneys, healthcare providers, retailers, realtors, contractors, and other service providers to clean up their QuickBooks file and teach them to understand the numbers for their business. Prior to starting her firm, Jess was a senior officer in banking and insurance for close to 20 years. She currently teaches small business workshops for area community colleges and SCORE and she facilitates the monthly meetings of the Wake County Women Business Owners Network, a group she founded in 1995.

“This is a great opportunity to learn about the latest tools available to help keep your business goals on track,” said Cohen. “Jess has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the financial sector and workshop participates are sure to leave with a hands-on, practical tool they can use to help their business right away.”
