The Importance of Emotional Intelligence in Business

Emotional Intelligence is a topic that is often overlooked in the business world, but it is one that deserves our attention. CEO’s Night Out Founder, Katina Walker, recognizes the significance of emotional intelligence and is bringing it to the forefront with the upcoming CEO Out Meets Greenwood Beat event on Saturday, February 10, 2024.

The guest speaker for this event is none other than Dr. Angela K. Chambers, Founder and CEO of The Greenwood BeatWFPG. Dr. Chambers will be sharing her insights on emotional intelligence and its application in the business realm. In a world where customer service seems to have taken a backseat, Dr. Chambers reminds us of its importance. She states, “Customer service may have evolved due to changing times, technology, and other factors, but as a business owner, it is crucial to maintain a good emotional balance and be aware of our communication at all times.”

CEO Night Out is a platform created by Katina Walker to provide a safe space for entrepreneurs, especially CEOs, to learn, network, inspire, and support one another. As the 2024 season kicks off, the focus is on getting down to business. The event will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Tulsa, located at 415 South Boston Avenue, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Accounting is Key with a Good Strategy for Securing Contracts

Faith Matlock Johnson, founder of Gabby Dade & Co., an accounting and tax boutique, delves into the importance of bookkeeping, accounting, and taxes on Monday night’s class for the 6 Week Cohort: Contracts at the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, Inc. with Dr. Angela K. Chambers.

The cohort kicked off on December 11th with attendees learning a lot about contracts, where to find them, how to secure them, and how to create strategies to grow their businesses with contracts.

Week two was the time to get into it by registering with agencies, organizations, and entities offering procurement opportunities. This cohort is designed for attendees to gain an understanding of contracts and help them learn strategies and avenues in which to locate available opportunities.

Monday night Faith crossed the Texas border to share good information, inspire and encourage attendees to keep better books. She discussed some of the tax advantages of tax planning and creating strategies using some of the tax codes based on your business or your future plans.

When it comes to securing contracts, having a strong accounting strategy is essential. Proper accounting practices not only ensure accurate financial records, but they also play a crucial role in building trust with potential clients and partners. She kept the audience engaged both new business owners and seasoned ones.

One of the main reasons why accounting is key in securing contracts is that it provides transparency and accountability. By maintaining accurate financial records, businesses can demonstrate their financial stability and integrity. This is especially important when dealing with large contracts or government agencies that require thorough financial documentation.

Furthermore, a well-organized accounting system allows businesses to track and analyze their financial performance. This information can be used to identify areas of improvement, make informed business decisions, and showcase financial viability to potential contract partners.

In addition to financial transparency, accounting also helps businesses manage their cash flow effectively. By keeping track of income and expenses, businesses can ensure they have enough funds to fulfill contract obligations and meet payment deadlines. This level of financial stability is highly valued by clients and can give businesses a competitive edge when bidding for contracts.

Another benefit of having a strong accounting strategy is that it enables businesses to comply with legal and regulatory requirements. Many contracts and partnerships require businesses to adhere to specific financial standards and reporting guidelines. By maintaining accurate accounting records, businesses can easily demonstrate their compliance, giving them a higher chance of securing contracts.

In conclusion, accounting plays a vital role in securing contracts. From providing financial transparency and accountability to managing cash flow and ensuring compliance, a strong accounting strategy is key to building trust and credibility with potential clients and partners. By investing in proper accounting practices, businesses can enhance their chances of securing lucrative contracts and driving long-term success.

The 6 Week Cohort: Contracts is the first cohort to be offered at the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Chambers said, “We have so much more coming up for this cohort. The end goal is that every attendee submits proposals for contracts and wins! In this cohort, we are sharing it all. With information provided they will have the knowledge about contracts, the process, they will get registered, submit proposals, and network.”

Cohorts and other trainings for 2024 will be posted after the new year.

Five Seats Remain for the 6 Week Cohort: Contracts, Let’s Get Your Books in Order

Business owners and entrepreneurs have been meeting to explore and position their businesses for contracts with the assistance of Dr. Angela K. Chambers. This week, Faith Matlock Johnson will discuss the importance of good bookkeeping; getting started, or getting things in order. The 6 Week course is presented by the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, Inc. The Chamber is committed to creating opportunities and resources for small businesses.

Accounting is crucial for all businesses. Understanding the basics as a business owner is crucial. Knowing your numbers is important to understanding where you are and the condition of your company. Additionally, having a tax plan is vital and can aid in creating a better financial picture for a company, in particular, a small business and/or a startup.

Faith Matlock Johnson, the founder of Gabby Dade, is an expert in bookkeeping and financial management. With years of experience working with businesses of all sizes, she has helped numerous entrepreneurs gain control over their finances and make informed decisions for their companies.

Why is Good Bookkeeping Important?

Good bookkeeping is the foundation of a successful business. It allows you to track your income and expenses, monitor cash flow, and make accurate financial projections. By keeping your books in order, you can:

  • Ensure compliance with tax regulations
  • Make informed business decisions based on accurate financial data
  • Identify areas of improvement and cost-saving opportunities
  • Facilitate the process of obtaining contracts and financing

The Basics of Bookkeeping

For business owners who are just getting started or need to get their books in order, understanding the basics of bookkeeping is essential. Here are a few key concepts to keep in mind:

  1. Record all financial transactions: Every business transaction, whether it’s a sale, purchase, or expense, should be recorded accurately and in a timely manner. This includes keeping track of invoices, receipts, and bank statements.
  2. Separate business and personal finances: It’s important to keep your personal and business finances separate. This means having separate bank accounts and credit cards for your business, and not using business funds for personal expenses.
  3. Use accounting software: Investing in accounting software can simplify the bookkeeping process and provide you with valuable insights into your business’s financial health. There are many user-friendly options available, such as QuickBooks and Xero.
  4. Reconcile accounts regularly: Reconciling your accounts on a regular basis ensures that your records match your bank statements. This helps identify any discrepancies or errors that need to be addressed.
  5. Seek professional help if needed: If bookkeeping is not your area of expertise or you simply don’t have the time to manage it yourself, consider hiring a professional bookkeeper or accountant to assist you.

The Benefits of a Tax Plan

In addition to good bookkeeping practices, having a tax plan in place can significantly benefit your business. A tax plan involves strategizing and managing your tax obligations to minimize your tax liability while remaining compliant with tax laws. Some benefits of having a tax plan include:

  • Reducing your tax burden
  • Maximizing deductions and credits
  • Ensuring timely filing and payment of taxes
  • Avoiding penalties and interest
  • Planning for future tax obligations

By working with a knowledgeable tax professional, you can develop a tax plan that aligns with your business goals and helps you optimize your financial position.

Chambers and featuring Faith Matlock Johnson as a guest speaker. Seats are limited, with only five remaining.
