Infographic _ Search your favorite web browser for "infographic templates PowerPoint". A couple of free template sites I found for PowerPoint infographics (as of this writing) are Visual.ly and Infogr.am. My favorite templates resource is PresenterMedia.com which is all_PowerPoint_based. It also has a plethora of clipart, animations, and customizable clipart. There's an annual fee for PresenterMedia but it's well worth it if you do a lot of visualizations and create a lot of presentations. The alternative to using templates to create infographics is to create a PowerPoint "slide" however long you want your infographic to be. Do this by using the "Design" and "Page Setup" selections to set the length and width of the page size. Then use shapes, graphics, and colors to create your infographic.
I never have to reinvent the wheel. And as a professional accountant, you can imagine how many different "wheels" I use every day! Profit & Loss statements, Balance Sheets, Cash Flow Forecasts, Time Sheets, Break_Even Analyses, Margin Calculations, Business Plans, etc, etc. When using your own prior work as a financial template, you get another benefit _ you are so familiar with the template that it takes you no time to figure out how to use it. And each time you refine it just a little bit more. So pretty soon your templates run like a Swiss watch! All the bugs have been worked out, you have tested it with many different clients and many different business scenarios and you know you have something you can depend on. Financial Templates as Tools _ For someone who is not a finance professional, financial templates serve a slightly different purpose. They still save time, of course, but they also provide a tool that person would have to pay someone else to develop.
