Color Accounting™

What You'll Learn

Color Accounting is designed to make it easier to learn the fundamentals of accounting. It is an augmentation to the process that you know so well.  It is in no way a substitute or replacement for traditional accounting. And yes, it is REAL accounting. In this self-study version Mark Robilliard said it best – “All the best attributes of the acclaimed classroom-based workshop, but in the convenience of your own time.”

Course Description

What is Color Accounting?

Color Accounting is a revolutionary way of quickly and easily understanding financial information in a brilliant self-study workshop format.  You will use diagrams and logical colors to see graphically how accounting actually works in a fun interactive way. (imagine no mention of debits or credits until the very end)
