Businesses, using traditional budgeting practices, refer to past data to forecast future results. In times of fluctuating income and expenses, last year’s results may not be a great predictor for next year.

A Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) webinar, titled “Financial Forecasting for the Small Business: Rolling Forecasts in Action,” is scheduled Thursday, June 15, from 2-3 p.m. This webinar will show small-business owners how to use rolling forecasts to create better projections for their businesses. Rolling forecasts are based on key business drivers and use project-based planning to provide a framework for a better vision of the future to support better decision making.    

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

Carl Young, a nationally recognized author and speaker, and former CFO, business owner and scholar, will lead the webinar. Young is a trained accountant, with more than 25 years of speaking and training experience. He is a turnaround consultant and coach, specializing in organization, management, business processes, internal controls, and accounting processes and systems.

His concept of “rolling forecasts” allows business managers to consistently add new data into their process, creating a more accurate financial picture in these rapidly changing times. 

The webinar is free of charge due to an SBA Portable Assistance Grant. To obtain the link to the webinar, go to
