What attracted you
to FocusCFO?

I like the team approach of having Area Presidents and CFO’s working together to help entrepreneurs with their business. You don’t feel like you will be on an island to sign a client. I am looking forward to supporting more than just one business owner to reach their dreams. Finally, that you have a vast network of experience with the Area Presidents and CFO’s that will assist you with projects/questions that may come up with a client if you are not sure how to answer or complete a task.
