I Want To Grow My Business

We have found the smartest and most capable person is usually the business owner. How a business owner spends his/her time is one fo the most important determinants of success in a business. We know that there are literally hundreds of things an owner can do for the business that are truly "good things". The key is to understand which are the most important for achieving goals and to stay focused on those limited number of things. One of those things is usually growth. So how does CFO Network help its clients grow? We are not sales genies. We aren't even sales and marketing experts. But yet we see it. We did a study of our clients who hire us with a goal of growth and looked at their busine

Better Visibility and Insight

Know where you are and where you are going. Get the tools and analysis to help you stay on track. 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 business going? These are the two other legs of the stool. You need a seamless view of your business from past to present to future.

Worry-Free Accounting

You won't have to worry about your accounting ever again. Hire CFO Network and get on to other things. As a business owner, have you ever thought about the value of your time? How much time do you spend fiddling with your numbers? Correcting mistakes? Hiring, training, managing yet another bookkeeper. Waiting for reports you can use to run your business. What if you used that extra time to work ON your busines, instead of IN your business? Most business owners respond that they could do some pretty valuable things with their time. Even one additional customer per month could add tens of thousands of dollars per year in bottom line cash flow. When we walk through this with business owners, th

Manufacturing

CFO Network traces its roots to working for some of the world's most admired, most advanced manufacturing companies.

The name of the game here is pricing to maximize total marginal profit which usually involves getting maximum utilization of the fixed assets. If you have a product that is more commodity, you need to focus on being a low cost producer. If the pricing environment is volatile or uncert
