What attracted you
to FocusCFO?

My parents were immigrants who pursued the American dream as small-business owners, and I grew up working in the family restaurant starting at age 10. FocusCFO's passion and purpose -- to help entrepreneurs and business owners climb the mountain through a team-based approach -- closely aligns with my own experiences. I'm excited to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams by applying my experience and insights to enable profitable growth strategies, solidify processes, and ease burdens.
