What is keeping you up at night?

This will differ depending on your specific situation. If you answer yes to any of the following then you should continue on.

– Don’t know if your accounting or financial ops are accurate or working properly.

– Your business is growing, however, you are not generating the profit you want.

– Your business is profitable, but you don’t understand from where or why.

– You want to invest or grow strategically, but are not sure how.

There are more questions, but I think you get the idea!

Edward Musmon served as the CFO for Boston Neurosciences, a start-up, venture-backed, medical device company. Boston Neurosciences was a small company and a great deal was requested from each member of management. Ed contributed far more than his title might suggest. He provided invaluable operational and strategic insights as well as excellent financial controls, advice and wisdom. He is thoughtful, dedicated and indefatigable. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

“Ed restructured our revenue recognition and accounting processes to provide clean data that tells an easy-to-follow story.  Now we have key indicators that help us to plan our business actions confidently and effectively.  It is important to say that Ed’s understanding of our business and our team is the most valuable part of his work with us.  Ed internalizes our existing cultural and personnel inputs and pushes when necessary to drive change and process improvement.  In the end, we have significant changes in our financial data with minimal change to our administrative inputs.”

Ed was available just when we needed him most. He came up to speed with the unique attributes and idiosyncrasies of our business at a near supernatural rate and was providing critical assistance in a very short amount of time. I heard nothing but stellar feedback from the many staff who interacted with him, likely do to his strongly team-oriented, collaborative nature. I would wholeheartedly endorse Ed!
