As an entrepreneur, you’ve done an amazing job in bringing your ideas to life. Your passion and enthusiasm has been your key to this early success, and will go a long way to helping that success continue. You are full of ideas and energy, doing everything it takes to build up your business.
As your business grows, you’ll face new challenges, and your flexibility and creativity allows you to adapt to these quickly and efficiently. One challenge that many start-ups face is managing finances. It may be an old cliché but more often than not “good entrepreneurs make bad accountants, and good accountants make bad entrepreneurs”. Understanding and managing the finances of your business are key to helping it grow. Further down the line, you may need to seek investment to take your business to the next level. Anyone who has ever seen Dragon’s Den will know, lacking financial insight at this stage is unnerving to potential investors. In addition, one of the top three reasons that start-ups fail is due to ineffective management of cash.
For a long time I have been interested in start-ups particularly in the Worcester area. With 12 years’ experience in various finance positions in small to medium businesses, I have the experience to help start-ups with the commercial and financial challenges mentioned above.
If you are an entrepreneur, small business or just someone with an idea that they would like to explore, I’d like to help you. Whether you have a small question that you’d like to discuss over a coffee, or need help to develop financial models and projections, drop me an email and I’d be pleased to help where I can.”
