Together we optimize your company’s financial performance based upon biblical principles
“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’"
Budget and keep track of your costs - Luke 14:28-30.
“The rich rule over the poor, and
the borrower is slave to the lender."
Manage debt - Proverbs 22:7.
"The wise store up choice food and olive oil,
but fools gulp theirs down."
Build up some reserves - Proverbs 21:20.
We partner with clients every step of the process, working together to:
Meet with you to assess your major areas of pain and opportunity - For some clients, simply getting accurate financial reporting is a need. Other clients benefit substantially from forward-facing financial models and budgets. Having a strategically minded financial advisor to discuss his or her business with is helpful at the onset.Identify which service package(s) are best for you - View our Services page for information on our Bookkeeper, Controller, CFO, and Projects packages. Set the benchmark - Since our mission is to optimize your financial performance, we will use prior year net income as a benchmark from which to measure and improve upon. Set up a plan of attack - We will determine what you, your staff, and ourselves need to do in order to accomplish our mission. We will use web-based project management tools, if desired, to track progress and completion of deliverables. Execute on the plan - We will use a variety of time tested financial management strategies, as well as develop some creative strategies. Measure progress - As we optimize your financial performance, you should be seeing an improvement in your net income.

What We've Heard
While working with our clients, we've found the following needs emerge. Do these sound familiar?

My financial statements tell me nothing. They're too broad. Why are my costs out of control?
