What attracted you
to FocusCFO?

I have worked with hundreds of companies in the $2-$30M revenue range over the years. So often, when asked questions about their financials, they would not know the answer. I have always felt that their financial data was so powerful and they weren't using it. And they couldn't figure out why they weren't making money or couldn't grow like they thought they should be. A great CFO helps management make smart, strategic decisions based on historical and projected data. How amazing is it that small businesses can now have access to that knowledge base?!
