Learner Success Story

What a refreshing experience to get Ryan's expertise first hand when we attended the 'Growth by the Numbers - Small Business Financial Management' course. We have been involved in different businesses for 20+ years and we could never get an accurate picture of what our business was doing until now!!! We have paid thousands of dollars to consultants who could not give us the knowledge that we gained from looking at our company through the numbers by the methods taught in this class. We discovered where our problem areas were and how to fix them. We now have a process to check-up on our business monthly. Thank you Ryan!!!"

  • Too much debt can ruin a company
  • Can be difficult to acquire for startup businesses
  • Requires owners to put up collateral and use their personal credit

External Cashflow
