While the pandemic is different from the 2008 housing market collapse, there are several best practices to gain clarity when doing what it takes to survive and thrive.

During this webinar, we will step through financial control best practices based on the 2% CEO Habits of Profitability™ to gain solid financial footing. The Habits are based on 100’s of CEOs globally and teaching mid-career graduate students at Georgetown University.

Kirk McLaren is the CEO of Foresight CFO, Growth CFO Certification instructor, and the Georgetown University graduate studies lecturer. His love for small businesses led to the development of the Impact Financial Management™ method to develop CFOs into Growth CFOs and guide their performance. Growth CFOs are not traditional compliance / accounting officers in any sense of the word. Instead, they work side by side with the CEO to intentionally grow their business with an eye toward the ultimate exit. IFM works in both growth and declining economic environments.

I love helping people, it’s my nature. My mom taught me that. Wednesday, October 23rd, from 12-1:30pm I’m teaching a Business Boot-Camp for Small Business and Entrepreneurs later this month. I have friends that have IT companies, and friends doing construction. The one thing I find as their common mistake is their business visually does not match up. They have their business card from VistaPrint, their company shirts from CutomInk, and their website the high school kid put together. AND THEY ALL LOOK DIFFERENT! #entrepeneur #fairfaxlove #fairfaxcity #bootcamp #visionideadesign
