"The Business Outreach Program allowed me to use my business training from school to serve the community. I enjoyed meeting dozens of creative, innovative and interesting business owners. It was an honor to help them make their business profitable by giving them tools to record and analyze their financial position. Many business owners start out at the BOP with some amount of anxiety about accounting and record keeping. I enjoyed making accounting accessible and seeing business owners engage with their books."
