FULL FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Virtual CFO Service
As a successful business owner, you want clarity about your finances and you want confidence in your future. You want the financial components of your business to be thriving, organized, and fully aligned with the rest of your life. And, while you’ve accomplished a lot, you’re here now because you’re looking for an experienced CFO who’s helped many business owners establish a healthy, thriving business that supports their utmost dreams.
Let me help you get there as your Virtual CFO.
I work with established service-based business owners who want to change the way they approach their finances, who want to make smart financial moves, and who are ready to have their business fully support the life they want to live.
As your Virtual CFO, I’ll help you manage cash flow, keep you GAAP compliant, provide financial & operational analysis and implementation, work to increase profitability, help you develop new income streams, provide projections & forecasts, create budgets, track KPIs, create more efficiency, and manage all the financial pieces.
But more important than all the technical benefits, as your Virtual CFO, I’ll help you structure your business so that it is healthy, sustainable, and aligned with your unique lifestyle and all of your goals.
In short, I’ll help you work from a place of financial empowerment.
Practically speaking, you’ll find that my role as Virtual CFO for your company incorporates (and sometimes eliminates) some other consultant roles like bookkeeper, tax strategist, business coach, etc. Every client I work with is different, of course, so let’s talk about your specific business needs & goals.

“Thanks to Erin we are in track to have our highest grossing year ever!”
As a 15-year owner of a design and branding agency, I’ve experienced many successes, but with that also comes opportunities for support and growth. I wanted to be more in control of our finances and intentional with the money we made. I truly felt like my team and I had taken as far as we could on our own, and we were lacking the clarity needed to know what actually was the “right” next moves. It was time to bring someone in that could give us a deeper understanding of the “numbers” that could help take my business to the next level. Most importantly, what they meant, how to interpret them and how we could actually use that information to better plan for the future. That’s where Erin comes in. She works with us on regular basis to make key decisions that impact our business in day-to-day operations, helps us make informed (and smart) decisions based on our long-term financial goals and set new goals for the future based on opportunities we would not have seen otherwise. Overall her communication, guidance and insight have exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone with a business that isn’t quite large enough to hire an in-house CFO, but still wants the peace of mind, expertise and direction that a CFO can provide. It has made a world of difference in my business, and my money mindset. Thanks to Erin we are on track to have our highest grossing year ever!

“There’s no doubt in our minds that having her on our team has allowed us to earn more money, stress less, and create a clear vision for the future.“
We’ve been working with Erin as Virtual CFO for more than a year, and she’s been a huge asset to our company as we’ve been working through some major transitions (not to mention COVID!). She’s been our biggest cheerleader, our financial guru, our rock, and our accountability partner. There’s no doubt in our minds that having her on our team has allowed us to earn more money, stress less, and create a clear vision for the future. She’s made financial decision-making simpler and has helped us focus on the big picture instead of getting lost in the details. Erin offers an experienced outside perspective that would have been impossible for us to attain otherwise. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her and know that she will continue to be a part of our major business decisions as we move forward.”

If you’re curious about the logistics of how this potentially works, here are some other important details:
- I only partner with a handful of clients in the role of Virtual CFO each year. I love working in this capacity and growing healthy companies! Unlike many Fractional CFO companies who contract with less experienced professionals on the back-end, I am the person who will directly work with you.
- My availability to take on new Virtual CFO clients fluctuates. Most of my clients work with me for several years (at least), and I only take on a new client when I have an opening, etc.
- Hiring me is an investment. I work on a monthly retainer model, and the specific price is based on the size & needs of you and your company. I’m proud to share that every one of my CFO clients have financially recouped far more than their investment during our time together. In fact, since the pandemic started in the U.S., my clients have collectively grown their revenue by +58% in the pandemic period alone—more about that here.
- My service as a Virtual CFO for small businesses tends to be of greatest value & fit to service-based business owners who are currently generating $600k to $5M/yr.
