The Rural Enterprise Assistance Project's Women's Business Center is hosting Quickbooks training workshops in Nebraska City Oct. 16 and Nov. 13.

 The REAP Women's Business Center is offering a free workshop on QuickBooks on Oct. 16 and Nov. 13 at the Rowe Safety Complex in Nebraska City from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The training is focused on help small business operators set up accounts and keep efficient and accurate records.

Monica Braun, co-sponsor of the 3-hour workshops, said it has been helpful to bookkeepers in other counties. "It helps them see where their business is at any given time and may assist in avoiding penalties and late fees," she said.

Anyone who is interested in the workshops can contact the Nebraska City Area Development Corporation at 402-873-4293 or email:

Each session has room for four-five businesses. More than one person may attend from the business. The classes are kept small so there is time to address the bookkeeping questions of each participant.
