Creating A Strong And Savvy Financial Plan For Your Business
Show Notes

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” 

—  Melissa Houston

You may have noticed a few changes around the podcast lately. So, let’s talk about it. 


The Think Like a CFO podcast is now the Business Society Podcast. I’ll be doing a lot of the same things — talking to incredible entrepreneurs about their businesses, discussing money management and business finances, and offering the same high quality guidance and support —  but now the podcast will be part of a new brand and website I’ve created, The Business Society. On this website, you’ll find a blog and a ton of free business resources for entrepreneurs. I hope that you’ll find it helpful and that you’ll share it with other business owners looking for a way to build ease, joy, and confidence into the way they run their businesses!


In this episode, you’ll learn more about The Business Society, but you’ll also learn why your business needs a financial plan. You may have some lofty revenue goals (and I love that for you!) but if you haven’t planned out how you’re going to get there, you aren’t likely to achieve your goals. If you’re on a journey, you won’t be able to get from the starting point to the finish line without a route, right? The same thing goes for your business goals.


I’d love to help you get started on creating a strong and savvy financial plan for your business. So, hit play and let’s get started!
