Finance + Operations Strategy

Take Control with a Virtual CFO

Let's Chat ➞

Running a profitable business doesn't have to follow anyone's rules but yours

You don’t need the huge team or the bloated back-end. You can grow fast and scale while still staying small and lean, and having the life you want. 

Simpler + more efficient is the name of the game. What’s the fewest systems, people and processes we can use to make sure your business goes from digital duct-tape and WD40 to smoother-than-a-Mercedes-Benz operations?

The secret lies in being able to understand your business on a deep, data-driven level, so you can evaluate and redesign everything from your finances, to your systems, software, and team to support the kind of CEO you really are -- and the kind of business (and freedom) you really want. Working with an outsourced CFO can help get you there.

Data. Is. Everything... and a Virtual CFO is your translator.

As an outsourced CFO I take the seemingly complex, incomprehensible slew of numbers and make them simple to understand and execute on. 

Data is everything and sustainable, profitable businesses are built on good data. 

Good data comes from good systems. And good systems are more than just having someone there to do data entry for you like a bookkeeper or VA. 

Good systems mean you’re getting current, up-to-date, laid out in a way that’s easy for you to understand, so you can make better decisions that preserve the health of your business and pave a path for the future.
I feel so relieved that this is all in order. I feel completely empowered over my books and my numbers for the first time in YEARS despite my obsession with excel sheets and tracking numbers.

As Your Outsourced CFO, I can help you:

  • Save Money
    Cut costs by reducing and eliminating dysfunctional and underused software & systems. Always keeping an eye out for cost savings.
  • Build Resilience
    More profit = more cash reserves. And a more efficient business means nothing comes crashing down when you hit a crisis.
  • Increase Efficiency
    Build a team that’s the right size, with the right skills. Identify where you need actual human support, and where you just need clearer tools and processes.
  • Scale Profitably
    Spend less time managing your team members and doing admin, and more time on work that actually grows your business
  • ROI on Every Investment
    Every dollar and second you spend on your business should get you a return. We'll make sure they do
This has been an AMAZING experience I am SO FREAKIN THANKFUL that I found Susan and had her do this. I just had a lightbulb moment with Xero and a few big things clicked together and I think I finally GET IT NOW! I really do, and I have my different revenue streams on the homepage updating in real time and holy cow that is amazing, that's what I've been looking for. I feel so relieved that this is all in order, I feel completely empowered over my books and my numbers for the first time in YEARS despite my obsession with excel sheets and tracking numbers.

Why Me?

Short version: I’m a virtual CFO with systems & tech experience. So I don’t just know numbers, I know how to build a lean, automated business that takes all the admin off your plate and gets you the numbers you want to see. 

Long version: Creating processes for everything from HR to finance, accounting, project management, and even client management, is my specialty. 

  • I’ve managed annual budgets of $100M+ as a CFO and departments of 370+ people as the head of HR. 
  • I’ve built, researched, and implemented software and other systems for a huge variety of organizations – from the US military to major universities, small retail shops, and marketing agencies.
  • I’ve owned 4 businesses of my own and am intimately familiar with how operations can derail a company or be the secret key to success.
My outsourced CFO services help you do more by making sense of your numbers across your business for a full impact on what it takes to run your business successfully. Because when you create a solid process, you make the decision once and never have to make it again. The amount of time and mental energy you save is huge. But only if the process is solid — if it’s not, it can actually hinder you and your team.
Seeing through the mess to find order is what I’m best at, and that includes keeping you on track as you grow with virtual CFO services.
Not many people have this combination of accounting knowledge, technological fearlessness, and boldness to take on new projects and problems. If you have an accounting/technology issue that is too challenging for mere mortals, contact Susan right away.
