Video – Intro To Business Budgeting

lift_fundHere’s an introductory video we did for LiftFund, a not-for-profit business microlender, based in San Antonio, TX. 1 LiftFund targets lending to small business owners who have otherwise not been able to get capital – or have already been turned down – from traditional banks. They offer not just loans but business training, financial education, and coaching. It’s a very cool mission that I feel good about being part of.

We did these videos for a site to be rolled out soon, called “LiftFund.” Everything’s free and meant to just get you as a first-time small business owner started with the basics of tracking your financials.

This video (and related ones to follow) walk you through the initial process of starting a small business budget.

I’ve occasionally posted other videos I’ve done for LiftFund, many of which walk you (as a small business owner) through the basics of building business financials on a spreadsheet. If you’re interested in sample spreadsheets, lots of these videos, and sample spreadsheets, are here.

Public Speaking


I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
