Hi Everyone -

New to the community and based in Chicago.

I've always been in sales and business development which gives me great exposure to deal-making fundamentals: negotiating, sales, managing pipeline, revenue projections, general analysis, etc. I struggle with the financial documents sellers have. Part because of my lack of accounting skills and also due to terrible formatting, book keeping, or negligence.

Has anyone found any good resources to get up to speed on accounting fundementals for deals? Most of the things I've found have been too generic and general accounting vs. doing a deal.

Thanks for any recommendations! (any/all other resources welcome too!)
