Nail the Numbers, Saskatchewan’s only province-wide, hands-on, not-for-profit financial literacy program for entrepreneurs, is gearing up for a transformative year.
Growing out of the successful Let’s Talk Money Initiative, Nail the Numbers is expanding its bootcamp and playbook series to provide increased learning opportunities in more communities than ever before. Building upon the excellent resources already available and helping to unify Saskatchewan service providers, Nail the Numbers aims to help all business owners to establish the confidence they need to gain financial control.
“It’s very encouraging to see so many new and growing businesses in Saskatchewan,” says Nail the Numbers creator and chair, Taunya Woods Richardson. “We’re excited to empower them and give them the control and financial confidence to take action when they need to. We’re here to help all Saskatchewan entrepreneurs,regardless of their financial knowledge, construct their own success stories by transforming attitudes towards money.”
Providing accessible information, real life stories and collaborative learning, Nail the Numbers cultivates an environment for Saskatchewan business owners to thrive both locally and beyond our boarders. With 25 experts from around North America leading a total of 80 bootcamps across 15 Saskatchewan municipalities, the program will cover a variety of topics allowing entrepreneurs to layer knowledge into pearls of financial wisdom.
With the full 2016 schedule being released in just a few weeks, Nail the Numbers is already gaining recognition from a number of integral business organizations.
“Business owners across this province need access to national and global perspectives and hands-on learning opportunities to give them the confidence they need to make their business successful,” says Steve McLellan, CEO of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce. “We applaud the efforts of local chambers of commerce working with Nail the Numbers and the talented group of campaign professionals dedicated to making a difference.”
As Financial Literacy Month comes to a close, Jane Rooney, Financial Literacy Leader from the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, says this is a good reminder that being confident in your numbers is a year-round activity.
“It’s great to bring awareness to the issue of financial literacy during the month of November, but it doesn’t stop when the month is over,” says Rooney. “Entrepreneurs all across Canada need easy access to information and learning opportunities that will help them build healthy businesses and contribute to a strong local and national economy. Nail the Numbers is doing exactly that.”
