Course Description

This session is dedicated to the possibility that many myths exist about business and it would be better to rid ourselves of these ideas. Thinking about these myths is hard because it requires us to examine some of our most deeply held beliefs and either dismiss them or at least think differently about them.

Sage offers integrated payment and accounting solutions designed to meet your firms and your clients’ needs. This session will conclude with a 15 minute demo of Sage Payment Solutions.

Learning Objectives

  • What are the top myths in business?

  • How do they manifest in our thinking?

  • What thinking should we adopt in order to combat these myths?
