Every business has a story that can be told through numbers

At The Finance Cafe we'll show you how.

Feel empowered by the numbers and the stories they create.

What if you could learn how to read the story of your business, one number at a time? What if business finance was less of a mystery?  How would that change the connection you have to your business? How would it shape the decisions you make in your company and how you feel about them?

We want you to feel confident, capable and connected to your business. We want you to see the full story of your business and what’s behind the numbers. As women entrepreneurs ourselves, we know that for most of us, there’s more to the bottom line than money; that our businesses provide a path to reaching our goals, meeting our responsibilities and being able to take care of the people and things we care about most.

As Financial Professionals we understand the skills needed to grow a successful business.

But as financial professionals, we also know that to do all of these things, we need a healthy, profitable and sustainable company. To do that, we need financial skills that enable us to take control of our business finances. In our business financial wellness program you’ll learn how to read the story of your business – one number at a time.

WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS

At The Finance Cafe, we offer different financial learning experiences for women entrepreneurs. Choose between our self-directed programs, our cohort-based programs and other special experiences like webinars offered exclusively to our members.

WOMEN’S ENTERPRISE ORGANIZATIONS

At the Finance Cafe, we offer courses and programming for those who advise, guide and mentor women entrepreneurs as well as classes and programming you can bring to your community of women entrepreneurs.

BUSINESS COACHES & ADVISORS

At The Finance Cafe, we offer a number of business financial courses that are designed specifically for those who advise, guide and mentor women entrepreneurs.

When we don’t know what our financials are telling us, it’s hard to trust that we’re making the right decisions for our company.

I cannot recommend this curriculum enough to any woman who is committed to a deeper understanding of their own financial literacy when it comes to business finances. This course would make an AMAZING gift for any and all business owners in your life, just saying!

If financials confuse the heck out of you, this is a sensible and convenient way to learn what it means and why you need to know it. I just completed this program that has proven to me to be invaluable! It was a surprise to me and I very nearly didn't sign up because of the topic, but I was SO GLAD I did. You'll thank yourself. Seriously!
