Emma from Nudge is presenting at The Hub, Melbourne at the end of August about how small businesses can turn their business story into numbers.
Managing your businesses numbers is so important but many small business owners don’t know where to start. And even if they have their numbers, they don’t know what to make of them. This presentation is about helping you to love the numbers and understand how to use them to make better business decisions. Some of the key learnings that small business owners will take away are:
- How your numbers will help you run a better small business
- What are the key steps to preparing and forecasting your business numbers
- How to make sense of your business’ numbers
Small business owners also have the opportunity to bring their business story (such as how your business is tracking and where you want to be) and Emma will help turn this story into numbers.
The event will be held at The Hub, Melbourne on 30 August between 4pm and 6pm.
When not managing Client Happiness at Nudge Accounting, Emma teaches at the University of Technology, Sydney in Small Business Accounting.

“Budgets and the story of your business in numbers” was our article this month for leading Start-Up publication, Shoe String. Why? Because so many start-ups and small businesses don’t have an effective budget in place. And to help me out, Aaron stepped into my shoes to talk about a presentation on budgets he gave to The Entourage’s Scalable and Saleable program.
Why do we think budgets are so important? Because they map out the strategy of your business into numbers. After all, that’s what drives your business to success.
So what are the reasons for start-ups and small businesses to have a budget:
- You need to work out whether your start-up business can be sustainable / profitable
- It helps you keep yourself accountable to the targets you have set
- To help track your operations and the costs you have to meet
