Many great companies got their start with a hands-on approach. And business leaders are used to doing it all. Or at least they figure out how to do something if they didn’t already know how. But although hard work and passion will only carry your company so far, there will eventually come a point in your journey to growth where you will need a solid financial plan and someone to advise you.
Improving fundability, operational health, and exit value are just a few reasons why your company should be consulting a financial advisor.
Here we’ll break down five more reasons why your organization needs an advisor.
Five Reasons Every Company Should Have a Financial Advisor
Consulting an expert could be the game changer your company needs to make things happen. Even if you’ve managed to scrape by in the past, we can help you make better, informed decisions and show you how your business can work for you instead of the other way around.
Find out how a financial advisor can alleviate stress and dodge financial blunders for your company:
1. Built-in Accountability
No shame here, but how many times have you made a rough financial or savings plan and promised yourself you’d stick to it? Only then for something to come up and send your plans packing.
It’s natural to lose steam when trying to grow your business, but Saddock Advisory can be your impartial third party that helps keep you on track to achieve your long-term goals.
2. Avoid Mishaps
Every company has experienced a missed forecast, run into unplanned expenses, and other unwelcome surprises.
But when you have a financial expert on your team, you’re more likely to be prepared for anything and able to minimize the effects of adverse situations on your organization.
3. Establish Authority
Need to build credibility with investors and the board?
Investors love having a CFO on board and understand the value that one brings to the table. It shows them you’re able to make smart and proactive choices to inspire growth.
4. Keeps Focus on Your Business
Running a business is no easy feat. Stress, outside pressure, and impending deadlines can cause business leaders to make hasty decisions that only support short-term outcomes.
We’ll act as your trusted advisor to take care of your financial plan so that you have the information you need to make a long-term decision that supports growth.
Additionally, since we are handling these aspects, you can spend more time focused on your business and delivering the best service or high-quality products!
