I think it is important for businesses to be an example in their communities and support charities and organizations they believe in. I attempt to do that whenever possible. My wife and I at some point in our careers have both spent time working for non-profits. It is a amazing and humbling experience. The work these individuals do with limited resources and limited pay all for the benefit of others is truly inspiring.
I spent three years as the Vice President of Finance and Operations for the National Stroke Association (www.stroke.org) in Denver, CO. During my employment at National Stroke Association I completed my CPA and CMA certifications. I was able to use and refine at lot of the information in this blog while working at National Stroke Association. I still do what I can to support the valuable work this organization does.
This blog is written with the intention of educating small business owners and managers about management accounting techniques that can help their businesses become more profitable. Much of the information is intended to be “self-help” but in some cases you may be better served to seek consultation. I can be reached via email at mgeris@theparttimeCFO.com to arrange consulting services. I will donate 10% of my fees to the National Stroke Association if you mention finding me through this blog.
If you don’t need consulting help but find the information contained here to be valuable I ask that you consider a donation in honor of “The Part-time CFO” to the National Stroke Association.
