You didn’t go into business to create spreadsheets and worry about balancing books. You went into business to bring your talents to the world and help people. As a new and growing business, you were likely able to keep up with your finances. It may not have been enjoyable work, but it was doable.
However, as you grow, the time necessary to keep your finances straight begins to take away from the time you could be using to bring in more customers, develop new products, service your existing clients, and scale your operation.
Maybe you’ve noticed that your financial reports are not precise, or they take too much time to generate. Perhaps you’re experiencing a challenge with your cash flow or having a difficult time determining what metrics matter to the future of your business. You may have a bookkeeper watching over your books, but no accountant utilizing this data. If any of this sounds familiar, it may be time to hire a financial leader and take the burden off your shoulders.
