Small Business Financial Expert Ruth King Shares Secrets to Small Business Success

Online Financial Seminar Developed for Business Owners Provides Essential Tools, Reveals Common Accounting Mistakes

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - Published author and small business financial expert Ruth King now offers secrets to small business success and essential tools for financial health in new online seminar, Turn On My Financial Lightbulb™.

Renowned author of Keeping Score: Financial Management for Entrepreneurs and The Ugly Truth About Small Business, a USA Best Books for Entrepreneurship award winner, King condenses her over 30 years of business experience into an easy to understand online seminar accessible to small businesses throughout the United States.

According to King, the strength of small business owners generally lies in the service or product they provide -- though few understand the essential principals of accounting, how to read between the lines of financial statements and what they say about the financial health of the business.

Spending much of her career traveling nationally and internationally helping small business owners understand common financial pitfalls associated with accounting mistakes and the critical dialogue they should have with their accountants, King has now created a crash course in accounting basics for financial success --

"Most small business owners start their business because of a passion they have for their product or service. Few have the accounting background often required to ensure financial health and eventual success," said King, CEO of Business Ventures Corporation.

"This online seminar is educationally equivalent to a three-month bookkeeping class, though designed for the small business owner rather than a future CPA -- focusing on what is most important in small business accounting; pricing, profit and loss statement, reading balance sheets and asking the right questions," King added.

King has written financial applications for the iPhone, iPad and Android and is currently working on her next book, The Ugly Truth About Cash. To test your financial aptitude and learn more about this innovative new small business financial seminar go to Or call, (770) 729-8000.
