What attracted you to FocusCFO?
In my career I have worked with entities ranging from raw start-ups to Fortune 1000 types. My most satisfying and enjoyable undertakings were with those projects that involved start-up or smaller entities-taking them to levels that met (and exceeded) the goals of the the founders and entrepreneurs. FocusCFO will likely offer these opportunities.
