Ka-Ching! They say the CFO role should pay for itself, and this book will pay for itself many times over. Chapter 4 “signature exercises” alone will save business owners many thousands of dollars. Whether you’re looking to add a bookkeeper, part-time CFO, or full-time CFO, this book is an eye-opening must-read.
My business is growing exponentially, and I need a CFO to can help set us up for a clear, crisp, flexible, and reliable financial (CASH) forecast, WITHOUT slowing us down. Pam immediately earned my trust, and just as importantly, the trust of my team. Her confidence, experience, and caring are evident at the very first meeting.
With Pam, we proceeded to go from a monthly financial meeting in which I said “This was the biggest waste of my time; and none of these numbers make sense;” to a financial meeting after which I said,“This was the best use of an hour spent on my business in the last month.
Sure – things are changing every day, that’s why this business is growing so successfully; and at the Author Incubator, we can count on Pam to keep up and with the vision and to clear the financial path in front of us before our foot hits the ground.
Shout out to Pam Prior who supported me through a major negotiation process. She was my CFO quarterback who created calculators and ran financial plays with me in real time. She also had a wealth of deal experience she offered key wisdom from. Pam is the ONLY CFO I've ever met that doesn't say NO. She says, let's figure out HOW. Also the first who understands Startups that create exponential growth."
I have had the great pleasure of working with Pam and, although her title has been Sr. Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, her role has been that of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. As might be expected with Pam’s stellar accounting credentials and experience, she is unparalleled in her mastery of financial and accounting management. Her aptitude, however, goes far beyond. She has strong leadership skills and exceptional organizational competencies which have enabled her to motivate the workforce to bring our ideas and plans to fruition.
Her tireless work ethic and her meticulous planning have earned the admiration of all who have worked with her. She is by far, the most competent, loyal and self-sacrificing co-worker I have ever had.
Pam's ability to integrate quickly and earn the trust of my team during a time of significant change was key to her work with us. She drove the team to improve our financial reporting, and isolate the metrics that I needed to run my business in a clear, concise, and relevant format.
Before Pam's arrival, I was constrained because we had a ton of data, but no reliable, consistent information that I could use to make business decisions. Pam made it possible for me to stop tying out reports, and go back to focusing on what I love: laying out strategy, envisioning the future, leading my team, and continuing to grow my business.
Not only is Pam super savvy and extremely generous, but her experience was perfect for what I needed to solve. I got so much value from that call that my heart was actually pumping fast. Pam was the kind of human being that stirs the spirit.
Pam has the perfect mix of “big picture” strategic vision, and roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-it-done work ethic. She’s been where most companies are, she’s been where they want to go, and she’s traveled the path between the two. That experience allows her to design and implement a plan, that provides visibility into the next steps toward achieving the business owner’s vision. Then she makes it happen by leading the team, providing ongoing counsel to the CEO and driving the organization toward the desired goal.
