Are you a busy entrepreneur with little time to focus on the financial aspects of your company? We get it. You feel like you need to concentrate more on the daily grind of the business operations — putting out fires and taking care of customers — and that leaves precious little time to think about the long-term sustainability of your company. And even though you have good intentions, you don’t always get to those crucial tasks of creating a budget, analyzing your cash flow, or planning your business growth, right?
Welcome. You’re in the right place. We are Featherstone and we are passionate about helping small business owners just like you…and in ways you probably never expected!
Melinda May, MT, CPA
I understand the daily, internal activities of a business. After 20+ years working in the accounting and tax fields, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with many businesses your size.
While I’ve spent time in a public accounting practice, working with several clients concurrently, I’ve also worked inside one company (including as a CFO) for 18 years. As a “hybrid” accountant, this gives your business the advantage of my vast experience with many types and sizes of companies — something you’ll find invaluable when it comes time to strategize and plan.
