Ser emprendedores / dia 4

The fourth day of the workshop is the hardest one: motivation is still high, but it is the time to talk about numbers, management and accounting.

The workshop followed a simple program, borrowed from the European project ABACO, and presented through a specifically created example.

The result was excellent: all the participants estimated their own budget realistically, and identified some basic parameters to control their business (for example, establishing a weekly income).

We discussed about distinguishing the financial resources of the home and the enterprise; about reinvesting; about the importance of retirement savings (in Ecuador it is non common…) and about “how much is my work worth?”.

Part of the day was dedicated to group exercises – business is not to me started alone – and to the witness of Francesca Paglia.
