About This Class

Is the idea of starting your own business daunting?  Maybe you have a terrific idea but no idea how to get started on it.  Or maybe you've started a company but feel you are lacking in certain areas.  Perhaps you just want to make sure you stand out ahead of everyone from the start.

Let me teach you the what the KEY steps to being successful as an entrepreneur and starting your business!

As an outsourced CFO who works primarily with startup ventures, I've had the pleasure of working with close to 100 CEO's, visionaries, founders and entrepreneurs.  While no two are alike, there are absolutely common traits that the successful entrepreneurs share.  I am here to give you those keys to success.  

Let me teach you the entire world of starting a business! It's not as hard as you think, and once you start you will never look back.  

Chris Benjamin, MBA & CFO is a seasoned professional with over 20 years experience in accounting and finance.  Having spent the first 10 years of my career in corporate settings with both large and small companies, I learned a lot about the accounting process, managing accounting departments, financial reporting, external reporting to board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and working with external auditors.  

The following 10+ years I decided to go into CFO Consulting, working with growing companies and bringing CFO level experience to companies.  I help implement proper best business practices in accounting and finance, consult on implementation of accounting systems, implementing accounting procedures, while also still fulfilling the CFO roll for many of my clients which includes financial reporting, auditing, working with investors, financial analysis and much more.  

Thank you for signing up for this course. I look forward to being your instructor for this course and many more!
