Why Color Accounting?


Color Accounting™ is REAL accounting. 

Color Accounting™  is a revolutionary new way of learning and becoming competent and knowledgeable in accounting and its DISTINCT financial language. For tens of thousands of students, managers, lawyers and leaders from Australia to San Francisco, Color Accounting™  has made a life-changing impact on their skill and confidence, communication and success.

In "the language of accounting
FINANCIAL LITERACY 
is absolutely vital for both accounting-minded professionals as well as those non-accounting individuals who need to make more effective business decisions and review financial information to achieve the company's goals. Color Accounting™ serves as a BRIDGE between these two groups. Ask yourself:


Do you or your associates struggle with:                                             

  • Communicating effectively with business owners or other professionals, in accounting or other areas of a business?
     
  • Making optimal financial decisions?
     
  • Understanding and meeting financial goals?
     
  • How their role impacts profitability?
     
  • Producing a realistic budget?
     
  • Being intimidated by financial information?
     

What if you could:

  • Use a common financial language
     
  • Confidently make great decisions more quickly
     
  • Understand the importance of various financial goals
     
  • See clearly how your role impacts the organization
     
  • Create budgets based on latest financial information

  • Fluently read and understand financial statements.

Financial Literacy is absolutely required if you want to increase your overall business success. Color Accounting™ teaches Financial Literacy in a very easy-to-understand method!


This could be the best investment that you ever make in yourself.

Background

Color Accounting™ is a new way to understand accounting for those who are not in the accounting field. It has been evolving for over twenty years. Color Accounting™ gives the student the ability to communicate effectively on all things accounting, regardless of the audience!

Color Accounting™  was initially used as an accelerated learning system for adults, for corporate education in the workplace. Students respond quicker to conceptual information presented graphically and spatially. Many examples continually surface showing how Color Accounting™  enhances traditional accounting teaching. 

The Color Accounting™ system is used around the world as a BRIDGE connecting accounting professionals with BUSINESS OWNERS and associates who are not accounting-minded, with the incredible language of accounting, in a simple and fun learning method. Now it is available to you as the accounting professional!
