About The Numbers Edge
The Numbers Edge was created as a selfless way to share the vast knowledge and expertise our CFO consulting team has been fortunate enough to soak up from mentors, experience and from working for hundreds of small businesses owners across every possible business model.
We are always heartbroken to see great, passionate, caring business owners underperforming and full of stress because they don’t deploy the basic fundamentals in managing their business by the numbers.
Our team dedicates our lives to teaching the fundamental principles of small business financial management to every business owner we meet – and the results are life changing. But helping just the people we meet isn’t enough. That reaches so few people over the course of a lifetime compared to the tens of thousands that could increase their success if we could just find a way to share what we have seen work so well for so many others.
