What You Must Know About CFOs, by Stephanie Skryzowski

I told someone the other day that I am a CFO and they giggled and asked, “Umm, what’s that?”

So I thought I would explain all of the ins and outs of exactly what a CFO – that’s CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER – is and does.

WHO is a CFO?

Stephanie SkryzowskiMe! Stephanie Skryzowski. I’m a Chief Financial Officer. This means that I’m responsible for everything related to the numbers. Analysis and reporting, budgeting, strategic planning. Many times it also means HR, IT, and administrative operations. A bookkeeper or accountant enters your daily transactions and looks at the past, while your CFO uses that information and helps you look toward the future, or “see around the corner”, to make better decisions for your organization.

HOW do I know if I need one?

Do you know your numbers? Is your profit margin or net income where it should be? Do you have a budget that you use to track revenue and expenses each month? How’s your cash flow?

If you can’t answer each of these questions with absolute certainty based on the black and white numbers, you probably need a CFO.

A CFO will change your business and the way you think about numbers. If she is the only finance person at your organization, aside from a bookkeeper, she will be your second set of eyes on the numbers and will make sure revenue and expenses are categorized accurately, so you have solid financial statements. She’ll look for cost savings and generate efficiencies. Your CFO is basically your numbers fairy godmother.

BUT what if I can’t afford another full-time position?

Totally understandable, and unless your revenues are in the multi-millions, you probably don’t even need a full-time CFO.

So a part-time CFO is your solution. Lucky for you, the freelance workforce is exploding! Oh, and I can help you too. Part-time CFOs are cost effective and offer an outside perspective that delivers invaluable input and insight to strategic decisions.

WHAT can I expect from a part-time, virtual CFO?

The first thing they will do is ask for a ton of information and do a deep dive into your numbers – they’ll need access to the accounting system, recent financial reports, and contact with your CEO and bookkeeper. This will help your CFO understand your business inflows and outflows, and she’ll be able to use this information to help you make strategic decisions down the line.

They may work on an hourly basis or monthly retainer (we at 100 Degrees Consulting prefer retainer!) and will likely prefer to work together for a minimum of three months. You will get the most of your relationship once your CFO has had a chance to understand your business and get to know the team. Plus you’ll get the benefit of a full quarterly analysis.

For reference, HERE is how we work.

Professional Website Legal Pack

This quality, PREMIUM set of documents brought to you by Powerful Digital Solutions

Are you lost or confused on how to establish a professional online presence? Or maybe you already have a website, but you are missing the necessary “legal mumbo-jumbo” to protect your website content.

It doesn’t matter whether you have a large e-commerce store, a basic “online brochure”, or a one-page landing page in ClickFunnels or Leadpages. You need the right “legal mumbo-jumbo” in place if you’re serious about exhibiting a professional appearance AND avoiding any potential legal drama.
The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018. In a nutshell, your website needs to have the right “legal mumbo-jumbo” in place or else you could face dire consequences.

Now you’re probably wondering: how do I generate this “legal mumbo jumbo” to cover my tail?Let me introduce to you …

The Professional Website Legal Pack

I manage multiple personal and client websites. Many clients and prospects have asked me for assistance with drafting their legal web pages. At a minimum, every website needs a Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. And then if you’re involved in affiliate marketing (making money selling other people’s products) and plan on posting affiliate links ANYWHERE, you need an FTC Disclosure.

I have come up with a package deal to take care of the “legal mumbo jumbo” for your online presence.When you invest in my Professional Website Legal Pack, here’s what you’re getting:
