I bring clarity and focused solutions to perceived obstacles and create plans of action that propel small-to-mid-sized companies to the next level. I partner with small business owners on developing financial/operational systems and procedures that support sustainable, thriving businesses. ??DebraChristein@B2BCFO.com??
With 30 years’ experience working with small-to-mid-sized companies on the financial management of their businesses, I bring a wealth of expertise and experience to small business owners that need solutions and plans to move their businesses forward. I work with business owners on managing IMMEDIATE NEEDS and/or planning for LONG-TERM NEEDS and BUSINESS TRANSITION.
SELLING FREEDOM & ACHIVIEVING CLIENTS’ GOALS
In the past six years, I have worked with over 60 companies and built a thriving business consultancy from the ground up. I’ve provided CLARITY, FOCUS and PLANNING to clients in a wide variety of industries.
I’ve worked with business owners to:
? Improve cash flow
? Transition or sell a business
? Increase credit lines at lower interest rates
? Set up the finance structure and procedures to support growing businesses
? Create models to guide decisions about operations management and strategic direction
? Untangle messes left by bad-fit employees
? Train staff to take over Controller roles
? Resolve other finance-related challenges
When I work with clients the only items on my agenda, are their goals. Business owners worry. Sometimes they worry about the wrong things. I come in and show them what to worry about and fix it. Bottom line, I sell FREEDOM for the business owner.
WHOLEHEARTED COMMITMENT TO SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS
Small business owners are part of what makes America great. I am inspired by the risks taken by small business owners. I admire their dedication to take a dream/passion and turn it into a business. I am honored and humbled when a business owner entrusts their business to me.
Reach out to me to achieve your business goals.
