Founder / Team Personal Financial Preparation
Even for those founders financially prepared to start a new business, starting a new business (or being in the middle of one in growth) can take a toll on a founder’s personal finances and psychology as well as that of their team. Teams have a tremendous opportunity to openly discuss what they aspire the business can provide financially for their families in addition to what they aspire the business will provide for their community and impact on the world.
- Are you and your spouse (if applicable) prepared?
- Are your team members prepared?
- Have you identified your financial boundaries?
- What happens to the rest of the team or the business if something happens to a key team member?
These questions and more are critical for teams to be open and honest with each other. Therefore, we’ve partnered with 2 advisors who are experienced at getting in the trenches with founders and their teams to develop a financial plan and scenarios to set boundaries for all involved. The goal is to identify potential cash flow challenges early and make sure spouses and team members feel secure knowing you care as much about their success, as yours and that of the business. These services are vital to helping guide business pro forma development and remain a critical component of preparing for success as your business grows!
