here is a passion about Canadian small-business owners that comes through when they talk about the state of their own financial know-how. Nearly half of them — some 47% — told Intuit in a recent poll that they believe further training in finances would help to boost their businesses' bottom lines.
And that kind of openness to new knowledge among SMB pros is growing. The percentage of owners who answered "yes" to the idea of new lessons and knowing their financial facts is up 15% from Intuit's last such study, back in 2012.
"It can be stressful for owners, if they don't know where to turn," said Rob King, director of Small Business at Intuit, regarding SMB owners looking for new learning.
