Financial Templates are the lifeblood of my work! What is so great about financial templates? They save time! That's their most important benefit to me. But the vast majority of people who do not have the pleasure of working as accountants all day long, financial templates simply provide a tool they can get things accomplished with. Let's look more closely at what I mean: Financial Templates as Time Savers _ I have templates for almost everything I do. What that means is that whenever I need any kind of a form or a spreadsheet, I first look for something I already created in the past and use it as a starting point. That's what a template is.
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.
