  • A financial audit is a valuable tool for early stage companies to enhance transparency, build credibility, comply with regulations and support decision-making processes. It instills confidence in stakeholders and lays the groundwork for sustainable growth. It can be time consuming, especially during a first-time audit, but the sooner you put the right building blocks in place, the better the process will be as your company grows.

  • 1.  Just start. “Just stop doing what you’re currently doing and start. Because the idea is never going to be right; the first direction is definitely not going to be right. But you can’t get to the right idea if you don’t get moving.” —Justin Kaufenberg, founder, SportsEngine (Episode 75)

  • The Future of Work is a projection of how the way we work will continue to rapidly evolve and how both employees and employers use technology to maximize the advantages of this evolution. We’ve seen major changes over the past few years, most notably with the shift to remote work, the rise of the gig economy and the Great Resignation. The pandemic accelerated these changes, but they’re trends that started years before the pandemic began and they are here to stay. At the core, the changes are all about getting more fulfillment out of work and striking a work-life balance.
