We understand that many entrepreneurs start a company because they are passionate about what they are doing, not because they love running a business. As a result, many back office operations are shoved aside until they “have more time” or “know a little more.” We help create the discipline and knowledge base to develop a fuller understanding of the financial health of your company and allow you to plan for future growth. We also believe that learning what your numbers mean empowers you to move forward with more confidence. In addition, we take on tasks that free up your schedule so you can spend more time on activities that generate revenue and grow your business.

The Complete CFO

Do you want to create a sustainable business that gives you the money you want and the time to have the lifestyle you crave?  Our Complete CFO program is designed for women who are trying to remove themselves from the day to day operations to concentrate on growing the business and spending more time with family and friends.  Your CFO’s job is to help you understand the story your financials are telling and simplify all of your financial relationships.

  • Monthly CFO Call to review your financial statements to identify trends, problems and successes in the past month. You will leave each call with an understanding of what happened last month in your business, what you anticipate will happen over the next two months and the impact that will have on the cash in the bank.  You will also end the call with an action plan for the coming month to achieve the goals you set at the beginning of the quarter.
  • Email recap of Monthly CFO Call to remind you of your plan and commitments to keep you on track.
  • Monthly Project Call to make sure you are executing on the action plan set during your Monthly CFO Call. We want to help you succeed and accountability is a way to do that.
  • Email communications between calls so you never feel like you are alone, scared, or overwhelmed.
  • Email reminder to your bookkeeper to produce reports before your Monthly CFO Call, so you have one less thing to think about.
  • Review of financials with bookkeeper before your Monthly CFO Call to ensure we have as many answers as possible, so we can be efficient with time and get you back to doing what you do best.
  • Email to bookkeeper after Monthly CFO Call with feedback and changes, so that there is one less task for you to complete.
  • The legwork required to get a line of credit, set up a 401K, or find a new accountant can be immense. Your CFO has the expertise to research all the options and present you with complete solutions so you can make quick effective decisions.  In addition, your CFO will make sure that what one financial provider is doing does not dismantle what another is doing.  This saves you time, hassle, and ensures that the strategy you have set is being executed by all parties.  Phone and email communications with the following financials providers as needed:
    • Bookkeeper
    • Tax Accountant
    • Banker
    • 401K Provider
    • Personal Financial Planner
  • Our Quarterly Goals Worksheet helps identify priorities for the next quarter to ensure that you and your CFO are moving you closer to goals of more money, more time, or more financial freedom.
  • Clients have access to the Members Only section of our website which has spreadsheets, forms, and other materials to help you better track and analyze your business and keep you and your employees from reinventing the wheel.
  • Once a year, we will perform a Financial Controls Assessment to reduce the possibility of theft and give you peace of mind about your operations.
  • When we start working with you, we will partner with your bookkeeper to write your financial policies and procedures manual. That way if you lose your bookkeeper, another can be hired with minimal disruption to your business and less stress for you.  It also means your bookkeeper can go on vacation and bills can still be paid and payments taken.
  • CathCap conducts an initial financial review to assess the state of your books and competency of your bookkeeper, so you can be confident in the numbers we are reviewing.
