Finance. The backbone of every company. Finance is a glass door into the inner workings of a company. The flaws and successes of a company are exposed in a company’s financial statements. Despite this, many do not know some of the fundamentals of finance such as how to read a balance sheet.

I wasn’t a financial pro, and I paid the price. ~ Ruth Handler
