Hire me by the hour to be your part time CFO

Hire me by the hour to be your part time CFO, financial controller. You would also have access to my team so we could provide any accounts dept services that are needed.

I am a Deloitte trained chartered accountant with 20 years experience working in the accounts departments of SMEs as financial controller and CFO

Business insolvencies are at the highest level for 13 years, so it is very important to have a very solid finance department advising you with a high level of analytics, systems and automation in place.

I also have many years experience as an internet entrepreneur, and marketer, and have appeared on the BBC and Sky News seven times as an expert.

My tiktok videos get up to 327k views, and I have 22k followers on Linkedin.

With my team I can manage your finance function, improve your financial monthly reporting, and provide a full outsourced accounts department if required which would be much cheaper and much more efficient than hiring full time staff that are not needed. 

I can help you with business development, implement anything and be a business advisor and sounding board for anything you want.

Contact me for a free brainstorming session to explore how I could help you.

Let’s Take Your Business To The Next Level

Do you want to take your business to the next level? Then consider a part time CFO.

Here are some of the benefits:

Financial expertise: brings a high level of financial expertise to the company, which can help the business make better financial decisions and improve overall financial performance.

Information: can set up dashboards and KPIs that help systematise and track how your business and departments are functioning

Cost-effective: can be a cost-effective solution for businesses that may not have the resources to hire a full-time CFO.

Flexibility: can be hired on a project basis, which allows the business to have access to a CFO’s expertise when it is needed, rather than having a full-time CFO on staff.

Increased efficiency: can help streamline financial processes and procedures, which can lead to greater efficiency and cost savings for the business.

Strategic planning: can provide valuable input and guidance on strategic planning and decision-making, which can help the business achieve its goals and objectives.

Access to a network: they may have a network of contacts and resources that can be beneficial for the business, such as access to financing, investment opportunities, and other industry experts.

Risk management: can help the business identify and mitigate financial risks, which can help protect the company’s assets and reputation.

Compliance: can help ensure that the business is in compliance with financial regulations and laws, which can help the business avoid costly penalties and legal issues.

Overall, if an SME wants to grow to the next level, then they need to get a CFO, and a part time  CFO is a very cost effective way of doing this. Companies without proper accounting support are taking massive risk especially at a time when the ONS says company insolvencies are hitting a 13 year high in England and Wales.

Get in touch with me for a brainstorming session. If we are a good fit, you can hire me and my team by the hour.

The Dark Side of Energy Subsidies: Small Businesses Speak Out

I’m going to be discussing the impact of energy subsidies on small businesses in the UK.

  1. Small businesses have warned that the government’s plans to cut energy subsidies will cause them severe financial hardship.
  2. The Federation of Small Businesses lobby group estimates that one in four small businesses will have to close, downsize, or restructure their operations due to the subsidy cuts.
  3. Many small business owners have reported mistreatment from energy suppliers, which has left them exposed to higher costs.
  4. Some small business owners have even had to consider moving their operations to other countries because of the unaffordability of running costs in the UK.
  5. Many small business owners feel that the reduced support from the government and mistreatment from energy suppliers will ultimately lead to higher prices for consumers.

Should the government help small businesses in the face of these challenges? Or should it just let them sink or swim in the free market? Share your thoughts in the comments.

The Fine Balance of Caring Less: An Exploration of ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’

Today, I want to talk about the book “The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck” by Mark Manson. 

It’s all about learning how to prioritise what’s important and not wasting energy on things that don’t matter. We all have a limited amount of time to give and should choose wisely where to spend them. We should focus on the things that truly matter in our lives and let go of the things that don’t.

Accept and embrace our problems and struggles to truly grow and improve as individuals.

Learn to set boundaries and prioritise self-care. Develop a mindset of not caring about opinions and judgments of others.These points are really useful on how to be more intentional and mindful in life, and how to focus on what’s important to us.

Now, I’m curious to know, what are some of the things you’re currently not giving a f*ck about and why? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
