5 Reasons Business Owners May Hate their Financial Person

By Rich Bond

If you’re a business owner or president, how do you feel about your finance person?

Many business owners have told me they “hate” their finance person.

Here are 5 of their reasons:

  1. I hate accounting and don’t like finance.
  2. I get too many unpleasant surprises.
  3. I can’t understand what they’re talking about. (I wish they could keep it simple!)
  4. I feel like all I get is bad news, like they’re costing me money.
  5. They don’t really understand the business.

So, what are you going to do about it? You may feel it’s too hard to coach them or even harder to replace them.

Yet, in speaking about replacing his financial person, one of my clients said, “If I’d known it was going to be this easy, I would have done it years ago.”

Once replaced, you may find that you actually like your new finance person because your company’s financial performance has improved dramatically. Over the years we have replaced the lead finance person at numerous privately owned companies where profits subsequently increased by 50% to 100%.

These success stories are documented in a white paper (https://bondandcompany.com/resource/5-financial-levers-that-help-business-owners-sleep-better/) that you can download at no obligation. We won’t even get your email address. But I would like to know what you think after you read it. Email me at Richard.Bond@BondandCompany.com.
