WHY

"Those who need me most can't afford me"

This is my effort to reduce or even remove the price barrier of getting help from a CFO who understands intricacies of building the financial foundations of a high growth business. 


HOW

You will find "learning type" content here.

This isn't general education. This content is solutions oriented. I've found that most entrepreneurs are too smart for "generic education", they need specific solutions.  



WHAT

You will find articles with strategies,  "plug & play" templates to run calculations, examples to follow, and quick courses to take.

All designed to help you find answers and solve problems

For WHOM

This platform is for executives, entrepreneurs and founders that are building modern scalable businesses.

I specialize in high growth software businesses, so most of the content will naturally gravitate toward software companies, but a lot of the concepts, tools, and content is industry agnostic

How Is This Different?

There's a lot of content out there. Lots of it. Long educational type courses, blogs, videos, etc. are abundant. Some of it is great, but it's  not designed to solve a problem. It's designed to "educate".

 CFO Principles focuses on solutions, not education.

You'll get:
  • Strategies to consider
  • Tools to use 
  • Guidance to solve the problem
