Financial Strategies to Impress Your CEO and Contribute to Your Company's Bottom Line.

In this episode we dive into some profit-adding financial moves that a Second-In-Command can make, even if they're not a CFO.

These strategies can help plug the holes in the financial bucket and pave the way for sustainable growth.
