AS SEEN ON:

What’s the only difference between business owners who have created a path to long-term growth & profitability...and those who fly by the seat of their sweatpants?

Spoiler: It’s not hiring an accountant…

Or a full-time CFO…

Orrrrrr

...the number of hours spent diving into Quickbooks and Xero

...or the thousands of dollars invested in a bookkeeper to make those all-important financial decisions for you

Cause the truth is:

IT’S ACTUALLY NOT ABOUT HOW MUCH TIME, MONEY, OR ENERGY YOU PUMP INTO YOUR FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT...

It’s about having the right tools to make strategic financial decisions that get you where you want to go.

The reality is, as your business grows, so do your financial concerns.

 

Things like…

  • Getting hit with unexpected tax bills (that always seem to come at the worst possible time)
  • Adding expenses that throw your razor-thin budget into total disarray.
  • Finding “creative” ways to make space on your payroll for new team members that you desperately need to keep your business afloat.

 

So whaddya gonna do?

 

Spend yet another sleepless night diving into accounting software in the hopes that you’ll find the elusive secret that holds the answers to all of your money problems?

(Spoiler alert: you won’t.)

Or decide to bite the bullet and pay for an accountant to balance the books and stop your financial snowball from spiraling even further out of control? Except trying to use an accountant to fix all of your problems is like trying to put a Band-Aid on a gaping bullet wound.

Maybe it’s time to add a full-time employee with the word “finance” in the title? Until you realize that putting another name on the payroll is sure to dig you even deeper into the crater-sized money pit that you’ve fallen into over the last several years.

Sending you all the way back to square one (aka a broke beginner armed with a dream and some hustle)

As a busy entrepreneur who has already built a successful business from the ground up, isn’t it time that you enjoy the financial benefits of your hard work?

Isn’t it time that you have the knowledge, support, and strategy to move your business towards next-level growth?

And to lay the groundwork for long-term profitability…

So you can enjoy the security, peace of mind, and restful nights of sleep that come from setting a foundation that allows you to fearlessly move your business forward…

...Instead of endlessly treading water while you deal with setback after setback and second-guess your way through uninformed financial decisions.

There’s no secret formula to long-term profitability and growth.

IT’S ABOUT UNDERSTANDING HOW TO MAKE SOUND FINANCIAL DECISIONS AND WHY YOU’RE MAKING THEM...SO YOU CAN CREATE A SYSTEM FOR SUSTAINED SUCCESS.

Lets be honest

You didn’t decide to take the road less traveled to become another statistic about struggling startups in a Forbes article.

You wanted to harness your knowledge and enjoy the personal and financial rewards that come with being your own boss.

You also want to be able to steer your own ship instead of relying on the reports your accountant or bookkeeper hand over (they’re chock-full of financial wisdom but don't know the first thing about running YOUR business).

AND, AS SOMEONE WHO HAS ALREADY DONE THE DIRTY WORK REQUIRED TO BUILD A PROFITABLE BUSINESS, YOU’VE EARNED THE RIGHT TO LINE YOUR POCKETS AND ADD SOME EXTRA ZEROS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT.

You’ve earned the right...

To pass the six-figure mark in monthly revenue instead of asking yourself “what’s next” after another lackluster month.

To have a firm grasp on your cash flow, budget, and taxes so you can make confident decisions that propel you to the future instead of being afraid of the great unknown.

To bring on new team members and take a much-needed break without having to wonder about the financial implications of adding more people to your payroll.

I want to show you how to install sustainable financial systems that help you hit revenue records in the immediate and long-term future.

 

BUT THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW FIRST...

The 3 Reasons You’re Still Struggling With Financial Setbacks Instead of Making Like Buzz Lightyear and Scaling to 6-Figures and Beyond

ReasonOne

YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE THE TIME TO GET YOUR FINANCES ON TRACK

divider

Yup. Been there.

I’ve lived the life of an employee turned entrepreneur, turned coach, consultant, AND course creator...

All while trying to keep a vise-like grip on my businesses’ finances.

And trying to figure out just how in the world to carve out time for things like forecasting, P&L sheets, and budgeting (never mind date nights).

But, despite those billionaire CEOs who live off of two hours of sleep, gallons of Red Bull, and the power that comes from an infinitely expanding bank account…

I don’t think you have to live to work in order to have a thriving business.

And you certainly don’t have to form a permanent butt imprint on your office chair, burn the midnight Excel sheet, or push back yet another family vacay to keep your finances above water.

Instead, you need to learn basic tools that boost your foundational financial literacy, so you can stop wasting time spinning in number circles or consulting the almighty Google as your CFO.

Because once you know how to tackle the hurdles you can expect on your business journey, you’ll take back control of your time...and can put on that guilt-free “out of office” notification (and freaking mean it).

reason2

YOU THINK YOUR ACCOUNTANT IS A CURE-ALL SOLUTION TO YOUR FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.

divider

Look: Accountants are amazing. It takes a brilliant mind to do what they do..

Video Poster Image

The problem is: most entrepreneurs think that their accountant holds the secret to profitability.

And, while accountants can certainly help you clear financial challenges that appear, they don’t hold the keys to your success.

Their job is to report what has already happened...

It’s up to YOU to make strategic decisions that benefit your business's future.

 

What You Need:

A financial coach who can give you tools to make your own decisions.

So that you can take off the training wheels and make hard choices without having someone watching over your shoulder or handling last-minute crises.

Reasonthree

YOU DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS TO INVEST IN FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS

divider

I get it.

You got 99 problems and cash flow is one.

If you could afford to throw money (and lobsters) at all your problems, you’d already be sipping mojitos atop the deck of your mega yacht.

But since you’re stuck back in reality with the rest of the masses, you’ve got to pick and choose your battles. And figure out where to best spend those hard-earned dollars.

Paying for financial help? That’s like trying to put out a fire with a gallon of gasoline.

Dangerous and ineffective, with a high risk of epic failure.

You think that paying for a solution is only going to add to your ever-expanding list of money woes.

So you invest in free advice and scroll through Google, click through help forums, and dive deep into YouTube wormholes… Only to be left with half-baked ideas and generic advice that may or may not work for your business.

 

What You Need:

A solution that pays for itself through tried and tested financial strategies that open the door to profitability. With the right advice, you can reduce wasteful spending and efficiently move your business towards your lofty goals.

Sorry Biggie…

More Money Doesn’t Have to Mean More Problems

 

If your business has made it this far, then you’ve already done the hard part.

You’ve taken the leap as an entrepreneur and launched a business that’s built to last.

You just need to use a few financial tools to shore up the foundation.

And, once you install a few critical pieces in your business, you’ll be on the path to:

  • Making confident decisions that lead to sustainable growth
  • Taking ownership of your future and putting yourself on the fast track to your goals
  • Building on the momentum you’ve already established by hitting record revenue numbers, expanding your team, and broadening your reach

These outcomes don’t have to be a pipe dream.

But they do require you to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Because, if I’m being honest:

Nobody is going to save your business.

It’s up to YOU to move forward.

Once you have the knowledge and systems in place to make repeatable decisions that boost your profitability, dealing with finances will be the easy part. .

“Michael gives you the tools to not only empower you to understand information, but also to retain it. I feel like I just gained so much knowledge.”

LAUREN BONGIORNO

“Hi

“Michael gives you the tools to not only empower you to understand information, but also to retain it. I feel like I just gained so much knowledge.”

When I first started my career as an engineer at a manufacturing plant, I found myself responsible for a P&L with tens of millions of dollars in revenue.

The only problem? I didn’t even know what P or L even stood for. Nooooot a good look.

After a little trial (and a lot of error), it became clear I needed to gain some serious financial chops to advance my career. So I decided to go to business school and get my MBA.

I soon realized that business school was more about reports and spreadsheets than it was about making strategic financial decisions.

I also found that many business owners were struggling to keep up with their finances, no matter how much time or money they invested in solutions.

And while accountants and CPAs were helping them stay afloat, they weren’t helping them make better decisions that moved them closer to their goals.

SO, I SET OUT TO CLOSE THE GAP.

 

I launched Business Money Accelerator to give business owners the tools they need to make informed decisions for their businesses. My team and I teach our students how to understand THEIR numbers, so they can increase profits and get where they want to go.

We’ve used our decades of combined experience to create a comprehensive program that provides the instruction, support, and strategy required to scale.

 

INTRODUCING...

The coaching program that gives growth-minded coaches, consultants, and course creators the financial tools they need to make strategic decisions as they scale.

I’ve designed Business Money Accelerator to provide proven entrepreneurs with the knowledge, support, and strategy they need to move their businesses toward next-level growth and sustained profitability.

The 3-Step Path to making confident & informed strategic financial decisions for your business:

GROUP COACHING

divider

You’ll join your fellow entrepreneurs on six 90-minute group coaching sessions where I break down the critical financial components that every business owner needs to understand.

Afraid of another boring finance lecture? Don’t worry. We don’t do boring. I’ll give you bunches of relevant advice broken down into bite-size nuggets (that are easier to digest than a 12-pack of Chick-fil-A)

We’ll tackle finance topics tailored for the modern business owner and dive deep into subjects like cash flows, budgets, business taxes, and more. You’ll also get homework from each lesson where you can dig into your financials and work on applying the methods to your business.

For some added inspiration, you’ll also get case studies with real-life examples of business owners who have implemented my financial strategies so you can see them in action.

INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

divider

After each lesson, you’ll hop on a biweekly call with your personal Business Money Coach. These scheduled 1:1 calls are your opportunity to ask questions, iron out your strategy, and get customized advice to help you jump any financial hurdles that come your way.

Your business money coach is basically your personal CFO for the entirety of the program.  In addition to your bi-weekly calls, you'll have access to them via Slack and email.

LIBRARY OF RESOURCES

divider

I’ll give you the keys to my toolbox so you always have the program, calculator, or resource you need to make the right decisions for you and your business. I’ve loaded Business Money Accelerator with materials that let you hit the ground running and stay on track.

You’ll get access to call recordings with former members where I address some of the most frustrating challenges that make you want to pull your hair out (or, in my case, rub my shiny head). You will also have access to our group Slack channel to ask your most burning questions, share your wins, and get ongoing support.

LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE. SIGN UP NOW.

Michael’s program has woken up another side of me. I’m more calculated with how I spend my money and I understand how to get where I want to go.”

SHEILA CAMPBELL

BUSINESS MONEY ACCELERATOR IS SO MUCH MORE THAN A COACHING PROGRAM.

 

It’s a step-by-step blueprint for making confident and informed decisions that help you hit your business goals.

It all starts with my lessons that address the most common financial concerns for small business founders.

In just 6 sessions, you’ll have a start-to-finish framework for taking control of your finances and creating a clear-cut plan for success.

Want to know how you can accelerate your growth and profitability?

THE CRITICAL 4

divider

There’s power in numbers.

But what if you don’t even know what numbers to track? Or what to do with the numbers once you’ve got them?

Whether you’ve got the basics down or your spreadsheets look like an algorithm scribbled on a chalkboard, you need to know how to use numbers to your advantage.

In Module 1, I’ll give you a crash course in tracking financial metrics. It all starts with a deep dive into the Critical 4 financial metrics that every entrepreneur needs to understand.

Once we’ve tackled that, I’ll also show how you to:

  • Calculate your profit margins as you hire more employees, increase your pay, and serve more people
  • Navigate accounting software so you know where to find the most important financial metrics for your business

Take the guesswork out of your finances so you can efficiently scale your business
This module will prep you for the rest of the themes and provide a basic foundation for your entire financial journey.

CASH FLOWS

divider

Ready for a not-so-fun fact?

Nearly 60% of small businesses fail in the first 5 years.

And it’s not because they don’t have the skills or tools to build a successful business.

In most cases, it’s due to cash flow issues.

The good news?

In Module 2, I’ll give you a comprehensive lesson in all things cash flow.

You’ll learn:

  • Why understanding your cash flow is one of the most important skills you can have
  • Questions that a cash flow forecast will answer
  • How to determine the amount of cash you need on hand
  • How to create a cash flow forecast that works for your business

After this session, you’ll be equipped to make smart decisions around cash that pay off for years to come. You’ll also be able to answer big picture questions about your business, like: can I afford to pay myself more, hire someone, increase my marketing expenses, and more.

BUDGETS

divider

We all know we should create a balanced budget.

Actually creating a budget that keeps pace with your growth, expenses, and constantly changing demands? That’s easier said than done.

If your idea of budgeting still involves keeping money in an envelope or stashing receipts in your desk drawer, then you won’t want to miss module 3.

Because during this session, I’ll give you everything you need to set a business budget that’s primed for long-term profitability.

During module 3, you’ll learn how to:

  • Understand the profitability of your business and plan for future growth
  • Make decisions based on their impact on profitability (not gut feelings)
  • Implement and use a budget that answers questions and creates a clear path forward for your business

BUSINESS TAXES

divider

Taxes suck.

But, when you have a firm grasp on your business taxes, you can rip off the band-aid and make the process of tax planning quick and (relatively) painless.

In module 4, you’ll get essential tax planning strategies to get back in the driver’s seat and comfortably plan for tax season without those surprise letters from Uncle Sam.

In this session, I’ll show you:

  • The 4 types of taxes every business owner needs to know
  • How to save tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars through strategic tax planning
  • Ways to avoid penalties, reduce interest, and lower your tax liabilities
  • Foolproof strategies to stay compliant with tax codes to avoid IRS audits

Once you’ve wrapped your head around these basics, you can make tax-friendly plans and stop worrying about tax consequences. You’ll also know what questions to ask your tax preparer so you’re in a good position come tax season.

GOAL SETTING

divider

Everyone knows they need to set goals.

So why do so few people actually put pen to paper and write out concrete goals?

Studies show that writing out goals increases your chances of success.

And when it comes to your finances, setting goals and action plans for reaching those goals is absolutely critical.

The good news?

It’s pretty simple.

In module 5, I’ll give you a 4-step plan for strategic goal setting for your business.

I’ll also discuss:

  • The biggest barriers to goal setting and how to overcome them  
  • The “backwards” framework for setting goals
  • What makes a good goal for your business
  • Examples of goals from fellow business owners to give you a creative spark

MINDSETS

divider

You’ve got all the financial tools you need to scale your business.

Now what?

Your final step is to overcome those mental hurdles that hold entrepreneurs back.

Mindset is everything.

And, in the sixth and final module, I’ll show you how to embrace a money mindset to reach seven-figure revenue and beyond.

I’ll discuss the mental hurdles that hold business owners back and how to shift your beliefs so that you can reach your goals.

I’ll also detail the 4 money mindsets that entrepreneurs share so you can adopt these views and start thinking differently about your business.

By the end of this discussion, you’ll have all the tools to remove the training wheels and steer your business forward with confidence.

“Security is a big thing for me. I want to take calculated risks and decisions that move my business forward. Thanks to Michael, I’m much better able to make smarter decisions about who I’m hiring, what I’m investing in, and how it impacts the business.”
