Take control of your business finances with CFO Days!

September 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT


I speak to so many women business owners who are stressed out by their business finances. Are you one of those women? Do you:

  • Struggle to pay yourself regularly
  • Worry about cash flow
  • Stress about your financial goals

If you said yes to any of those, or if you’re just too overwhelmed to even really look at your finances I want to invite you to my upcoming live webinar, CFO Days: Taking Control of Your Business Finances.

I’ve taught many women entrepreneurs and business owners to take control of their finances and start growing their business by implementing CFO Days! This is a day where you focus on managing the money going in and out of your business so you can tell it where to go and make it work for you.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Schedule time each month to focus on your financial tasks
  • Understand the specific tasks you need to complete to stay on top of your cash flow
  • Develop the habits that will help you make more money
  • Feel empowered to act as the CFO of your business

Kalamazoo County Land Bank logo

The Kalamazoo Land Bank did robust community engagement around the vision and gave us something to work with that was solidly desired by people in the neighborhood. Having a vision meant we had to protect it. That’s something I thank the Land Bank for. It was difficult. It didn’t make anything faster or easier, but we got a better project in the end as a result of it.
