Quit throwing money away...

Your time is valuable. If you are running your business and serving your customers all day, only to skip out on family activities so you can spend hours in the evening managing your books—or worse yet, turning away business because you need to sort out your financials—you are losing time and money.

Many small business owners think they can save money by handling their own books or passing the task off to a family member. Unfortunately, when your financial reports are done by someone who isn’t an expert, the results can be disastrous for your business. 

Because you’re afraid you’ll get it wrong or because you just plain hate to do it, financial tasks often get pushed aside in favor of daily business operations, so your paperwork ends up collecting in boxes for months or years at a time and becomes a nightmare when you finally have to deal with it. 

A fractional or outsourced chief financial officer (CFO) is an individual who has CFO experience and who helps organizations with their financial needs on a part-time basis, either on retainer or more typically a contracted basis. ... Most fractional CFOs also have experience with many different companies.

Maximize your growth potential with a fractional CFO

When you bring in a fractional CFO, you’ve got a trusted advisor on call who is looking out for your best interests. My sole job is to help you understand and manage the financial health of your business. Many businesses who work with me end up saving money because they aren’t spending their own valuable time trying to keep up with their books.

Plus, when you hire us, we will be in close contact with you and your company while doing the bulk of our work. That means you get all the benefits of top-notch CFO services without the need to provide office space or hire a W-2 employee!
