Financial Analysis

CFO Network has experienced financial analysts to help you understand your numbers. We provide insight and visibility into what really drives profitability, allowing you to make faster, better and more impactful decisions. Most business owners are accustomed to getting financial reports that show how their company performed last month, or year to date. That's how accountants and bookkeepers have done it for hundreds of years. But this is the 21st century. A business owner needs more than visibility into the past-- especially the distant past. It's a lot like trying to drive a car down the road by looking only in the rear view mirror. ​ Where is your business right now? Where is your busines

Why Business Planning is a Worthwhile Investment

Business planning is one of those “nice to have” things for executives. Most say business planning is a good thing, but yet only a small percentage report doing it on a regular basis, especially executives in small and medium businesses. If business planning is done well it can be a worthwhile investment. The trick is to learn from those that do it well, adapt it for your own organization and integrate it into the fabric of how you run the business. I spent 14 years working in the areas of strategy, investments and finance for companies such as Motorola Semiconductor and Intel Corporation. Intel in particular is renowned for its planning and execution capability. The semiconductor busin

A Better Way to Run Your Business

For a business owner, what’s the value of having solid numbers and the ability to use them to make good decisions? Imagine being an airline pilot flying at night. All you have is your instrumentation to tell you where you are, where you have been and where you are heading. In a business, you are flying blind if you do not have numbers you can trust, are not timely or are not usable for making decisions. You should expect more! At CFO Network we do two things: (1) we have a great accounting staff who provide a solid foundation of timely, accurate and relevant numbers and (2) we have a great team of business analysts who leverage the numbers to work with you to help you maximize the potentia

Managing Risk

Managing risk is an inherent element of finance. Whether they realize it or not, business owners grapple with the tough trade-offs between risk and return every day. The problem is that most business owners are forced to do this all alone. CFO is genetically wired to help our business owners identify potential risks and to help actively manage them. First, we can dramatically improve the risk of accounting fraud compared to a typical small business. CFO can provide the critical element of separation of controls. Most small businesses have only one person doing things. At CFO there is one specialist who balances the bank and another who does accounts payable. We have an accountant that review

Managing Growth

We have found that businesses tend to go through series of stages, each one marked by some type of natural barrier, usually requiring a retooling of people and processes to break through. Unfortunately most business owners don’t recognize these barriers until they have already bumped up through them and suffer heavy consequences when things come crashing down. CFO has seen this time after time and is uniquely able to help proactively identify and plan for these in our clients. An example of one such barrier is the need to shift from “managing by walking around” to “managing by the numbers”. In the beginning an owner can stay close to customers and each employee through informal communication

Can I afford CFO Network?

Yes! We were built from the ground up to serve small business, which means we have to be affordable. Our costs are typically lower than the cost of hiring internal people. We have pioneered a unique team-specialist approach that makes our productivity far greater than that of a typical internal employee. This allows us to deliver superior value at a cost that is affordable. But that’s just the beginning.

Our goal is to more than pay for ourselves with improved cash flow. #FAQ

How do you charge for your services?

We offer both hourly and fixed price billing. Hourly work is typically for project-type work.

Just like a virtual employee #FAQ

Are you a CPA firm? Do you do taxes or audits?

No. We have chosen to NOT be a CPA firm specifically because we are laser focused on internal accounting. We like to work with your existing tax expert. We can offer consistent weekly and monthly service levels. We are never distracted by tax season, audit seasons, or any other season. #FAQ
