What do you like best about working with FocusCFO?

Being with FocusCFO allows an opportunity to collaborate with such a wide variety of professions. Not only do we get to interact with many members of the business community (banking, attorneys, CPAs) but with an unlimited number of entrepreneurs. Working together enables so many businesses to be more successful which results in employment for others and and an improved economy. For me very rewarding and fulfilling.
