Danille Hayden - Financial Planning for Small Business Growth.

Successful business owners know their numbers. They have a plan for launching and growing their business. But many small business owners ignore their finances, whether it’s because they don’t want to know the truth or they just “aren’t good with numbers”. And at the end of the year they scramble to get their books ready for their CPA to create and file their tax returns. Instead, what we need is a Financial Plan with specific and measurable goals – we must use our financial data to help us make better decisions as we grow our small businesses.

Danielle Hayden helps her clients do just that, and she is here today to share her entrepreneur story and practical tips and advice to help you take control of your finances and your business.
