What attracted you
to FocusCFO?

I really enjoy working with small business owners and helping them with financial, operational and strategic decisions that affect their business. I appreciate and respect the time, energy, funds and commitment these owners give to their businesses – it takes a lot of guts and fortitude to be an entrepreneur and business owner. This isn’t a job to them, it’s their life and legacy. I enjoy bringing that same passion and commitment in delivering our services to each and every client.
