Course Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly changed the outlook of nearly every business.

The effects of COVID-19 are far-reaching and have caused the unprecedented change. Businesses and organizations face economic and operational uncertainty across every industry and sector. Now more than ever is the time to understand compliance, adjust expectations, renew focus and reposition in the wake of the next normal.

There is an urgent need for business owners to plan and protect what they have worked so hard to build. The pandemic amplified the risk and the need to be proactive. More than 90% of business owners have prominent issues that disrupt, disable, and perhaps kill business.

One dozen issues can negatively impact business – yes, kill the business.

There are many more warning flags to look out for in a failing business, from “heroic” leaders surrounded by nodding executives to cynicism and lack of purpose. But these are five of the key ones which, if allowed to continue, will likely result in a business going bust.

Unfortunately, many do not take the time to plan and protect what they have worked so hard to build. If you seek to protect and nurture your baby, now is the time to do so and this CPE course will help you in doing so.

This CPE webinar illustrates both for you and your clients the 12 areas that cannibalize business and how to avoid them.

Very Good

You have 3 types of CPE courses on this site. One is the commercial. One or two guys will present some product and talk about it for an hour under the guise of covering some area of accounting that is relevant to me and matches the title. It is like a time share presentation in that you can't leave and it is mildly amusing. The second type is the presentation that is well thought out, well presented and very useful. Most of the presentations here are like that. You can tell the author really spent time developing the course and really enjoys teaching. The third type is the worst. It is taught by a guy who jumped around from job to job for years, most of his resume is bullshit and he loves to spent part of the presentation telling you about how smart he is, both by the 10000 books he wrote and his life on the road at speaking engagements and he is quick to tell you about all his degrees and certifications. THIS CPE is that third type. I have been to a lot of seminars in my 20 years but I have never seen one where the author puts a full picture of himself in some weird pose on the powerpoint slide. So weird. This guy wants to tell you story after story about all his great experiences and he blathers on for the full time. his handout is complete crap; nothing in it was discussed in the presentation. This guy clearly did not prepare before he gave the presentation - he just talks. I got nothing out of this course and it should be deleted from my-cpe.
