    Today we get to focus on one of my least favorite, yet arguably most important topics for Small Business owners. Managing your accounting and cash flow is critically important to make your business successful and to keep it healthy. The reason accounting isn’t my favorite topic is that I am just not very good at it. I have focused most of my business efforts on the top line of sales and growth - not always the best technique. Today I am looking forward to learning more about how choosing the right CPA and advisor can help achieve better results and help business owners take their companies to the next level. To help educate us today we are joined by Courtney DeRonde, a Managing Partner from TDT CPA’s and Advisors. 00:00:00 Small Business Show #299 for Wednesday, October 21, 2020 00:01:07 SPONSOR: Linode.
