    Small Business Quickbooks Accounting Workshop Day 2 of 2

    Small Business Quickbooks Accounting Workshop: Have a fulfilling business but lost when it comes to accounting? Come learn Quickbooks basics hands on at this 2-day split workshop with Renee Trump of Pasaban Accounting! If you have a laptop, feel free to bring it along and follow the workshop with your own real numbers - this way, you will have made great progress with your business by the end of the workshop. In the event that you don't have a laptop, come join us nonetheless and learn how to get a strong handle on your finances! Register now to ensure you have a spot! Seats are limited to ensure that all participants receive direct attention.

    IMPORTANT DATE & TIME INFO: The workshop is split between Monday, October 13th and Thursday, October 16th from 6:00pm-8:00pm each day. The Eventbrite interface is not conducive to that format for dates and times, so the event above does say Oct. 13 at 6:00pm - Oct. 16 at 8:00pm. This is not a 3-day event, but rather is a 4 hour workshop divided between two evenings. The registration admits to both days as they are consecutive and not alternative dates.

    Forge Portland is hosting the workshop and is located in the Tiffany Center at 1410 SW Morrison St., Suite 850. For $99, Renee Trump and Forge Portland are offering you the opportunity to get your small business accounting on the right track with Quickbooks.
