About the book:

This clear and concise book will help you better understand the universal language of business and will demystify the financial terminology and concepts that are used to measure an organization’s performance.

Do you want to go to the highest high of your organization? Would you like to enhance your business acumen so any employer in any industry in any part of the world can see your value? If so, this book is a must-read and, more importantly, a must-do.

A recovering accountant, Paul serves as your guide—breaking the complexity of business down into simple, memorable, and often humorous steps.

Can you imagine an organization where everyone working in the business is working as if they owned the business? Imagine what that would do to that company’s income, expenses, assets, and liabilities.

That’s called having an intrapreneurial spirit. That’s called business financial intelligence—a mindset and skillset few people have and all organizations need.
