THINK Virtual CFO 

David Ewart, CPA, CA

Think your company is too small for a CFO – Think again. Regardless of your company’s size, if you don’t have a professional Chief Financial Officer (CFO) then you, the entrepreneur, are the defacto CFO. Do you really want to do that job?  You can and should have the best CFO on your team. Your business can have the most qualified CFO for a surprisingly small amount.
Think what you could accomplish:
~ if you did not have to worry about cash every day.
~ if you really knew how profitable you were and fully understood your profit drivers.
~ if your company operated in such a way as to support your strategic plans.
~ if your managers were motivated and accountable.
~ if your accounting department was fully able to support you.
~ if you had a succession plan and exit strategy.
~ if you had an internal resource to provide support for business decisions, advice on best practices and direction through business coaching.

Think what you could accomplish if you
had a seasoned CFO dedicated to helping
you take your business to the next level.
