Tiffany Couch has seen theft in many forms, but what sticks with her is the emotional devastation that these crimes leave in their wake.

As auditors and investigators, having professional skepticism is not only a critical skill, but a requirement under professional standards. But what does professional skepticism look like and how does one hone their skeptical mind? In this course, we will use examples of actual documents and verbatim conversations that turned otherwise ordinary interactions into fraud investigations uncovering losses in the millions.
Interviewing skills for Auditors
Your professional standards require you to consider the risk of fraud in an organization and to rely on interviews of management and staff to satisfy this requirement. We'll talk about the fact that just 4 percent of all frauds are discovered by external auditors, examine the reasons why those statistics are so low, and incorporate ways to bring more success to the informational interviews you conduct as an auditor.
Understanding Financial Reports
As an entrepreneur you are great at what you do, delivering your products or services, connecting with your customers, and building a business. But below all of that success, you worry that you don't understand your financials. You may ask yourself some of the following: "Why is it that my income statement shows I'm making money, but I have no cash in the bank?" "What is a balance sheet and why is it important to my business?" "Why doesn't my accountant help me understand these numbers?" Your financials shouldn't scare you; they should empower you. Let Tiffany show you how.

We'll dive into hard truths about the mixed messages we've inherited, the shame and fear most of us carry around our relationship with money, and simple tools to lead you on the path to abundance.
