Financial Transparency

The argument against pursuing financial tranparency, that is excessively laborious. And this argument is not  without merit.

Though the activity of financial accounting is, at times grudgingly, required of more every individual, and organization, these days.

That said, our financial transparency can serve as a model for others to emulate, and so be another seed for a project enabling greater financial literacy.

Furthermore, we seek to keep our expenses to a minimum; and well categorized.

The Toolset

In this manner, at every juncture we can simplify accounting activities.

The central tool in doing this is an open-source platform called GNUCash, an open-source version of Quicken.

Eventually we can provide classes that teach our community how to use this type of program to manage their personal, and business, accounting; through a computer and phone of their choice.

The Results

In conclusion,  it may be some additional labor. Though by the power of open-source software, automation and our communities of programmers and learners, we can overcome this obstacle.

We can even continue to making a more fluid and efficient workflow, and toolset. Others can then emulate these to better enable financial literacy, and growth, for themselves and their communities directly, and in a more expansive manner.

In this manner ScreamFreely is able to provide curriculum that only supports one’s entrance into a financially lucrative market, we also support the financial stability and literacy of our communities.

The view is one of opportunity cost. We could expend a bit more effort, for an exponential increase of content and service we are able to provide.

As these actions are aligned with processes we will need to conduct anyways, adding the labor of recording and editing them is minimal. And can be of introductory service to many.

Por eso, vamanos!
